      So pictures from Saturday's autocross and a video

      The video was not my best run of the day, and I ended up shaving 2 seconds off that time.

      2 seconds is huge when it comes to lap times. Looks like a lot of fun.

      i've got the ripples on both sides as well and have been wanting to get them fixed and fill the side markers while it's at the shop.

      I heard it has something to do with the way VW glued/mounted the bumper? Not sure though

      The attachment points caused them. VW did replace bumpers for a few, some had them come back.. some went as far as to mod the bumper... I miss my ripples!



      bumper ripples exude class.



      Id leave them be.

      Entry #010

      WOO! tenth entry lol.

      Got window tint over the weekend. Mainly because the parking lot at work has no shade and when I get in my car after a long day (even with a windshield reflector) my car is 912340.1632 degrees. and my interior panels feel like they are lava.

      So with that being said. I got 28 on the sides and 18 on the back windshield

      Sorry the pics aren't that good, they were taken with my phone.









      I am extremely happy with the way that it turned out, they did a real good job getting the tint to lay down in the dot matrix on the edge of the back windows.

      On my way home, I noticed that the mirror inside of my sun visor was cracked (it wasn't when I dropped the car off). I gave them a call and they just called me back saying they would cover the cost of a replacement.



      So big thumbs up to SunShade Window Tinting in Troy, Mi. for being an honest company. I already referred one of my friends to them and will most likely be returning for a light coat of windshield tint.

      I take it your tint laws arent too stringent, IIRC, CT is like 30% is max i can get and im not allowed to have any windshield tint/ outside of OEM...unless its one of those ultra cool black trips along the top

      Looks nice though

      Michigan law says that anything on the front three windows is illegal.

      on any other window you can make it solid black if you desire. lol

      That is quite dark. Looks great, hopefully the cops don't give you crap. I know I see plenty of donks with even darker tint driving around all the time. Knocking on my fake wood desk while saying I've had no trouble with my (lighter) tint in 2+ years of michigan driving.
