      Right-o! I'm amused the R36 dead pedal is made in Italy.

      Where did you get it?

      I want a euro rear, too.

      Be not mad! Got lucky, I called oempl.us to check if I could get just the bumper skin for the R32 instead of their kit, they had one on hand that they took $250 off to get rid of it. Shipping sucked ass, $165, but all in total it cost me $150 out of my own pocket to do the Euro front bumper vs the OEM US bumper. I feel it's worth it! Don't know of anyone off the top of my head with the euro R32 front. Anxious to see it. Not a huge difference, but subtle enough.

      Just need someone to mess up the rear bumper and we're gold!

      Oh I know! People thought I was weird for swapping the plastic glove box handle for the metal one, lol. Made a huge difference to me interior wise.

      Funny you mention that, as that is going to be one of my next little things.

      Did you use a magnet to assist in getting the old one out?

      Lol, well getting the old one out was easy for me, the torx driver I used had a nice snug fit so it came out with the driver (just had to be super delicate). Putting the f'Ing screw back in was the nightmare as it goes in at some weird angle that was hard to get it to bite and you have tul to use the driver since there screw is recessed. I dropped it INSIDE the glove box door once and took me a lot of cussing to get it out. Eventually got it in and love it.

      Isn't the difference just no sidemarkers?


      Hey Beta, where did you get the metal latch? The only place I've seen it is Tmtuning.

      Yeah just no side markers but it looks soooo good.

      You can get the glove box handle from your dealer or ECS. It came stock on early MKV's here so it's in the parts system.

      Yeah, but if you know a thing or two about body work then you will appreciate the euro bumpers coming without sidemarkers. That is, if you want to ever "shave" the sidemarkers.

      You got it, it's SO worth the $30ish bucks. I'll snap a photo once I get my car back.

      So, ordered a set of triple squares [also known as 12 point torx or 'XZN' bits] since I was retarded and forgot to make sure I had all the tools I needed for the brake install.

      I wanted to share this set because it's pretty complete and reasonably priced. Comes with a lifetime warranty and look decent. I will end up testing the 14mm in the coming weeks but finding a good set of these is kind of like finding gold.

      The price was right to try them out and they have great reviews on amazon.com, if you're not stuck on brand names these [pending usage] might be a great alternative to more expensive sets of similar size from Snap On or Mac Tools of $50+ [running off memory anyways]. I know the Snap On's are made in Taiwan, as are these VIM Tools.



      Link on amazon.com Currently about $33 shipped. Price went up $3 since I ordered it last week so it may fluxuate some.

      This is the same set I have; held up great through multiple uses so far.

      I got them for $26 shipped though, guess they went up again
