Won't pass inspection and more importantly, when the inspection stickers get scraped off, so will the tint.

      For those of you that aren't familiar with my GLI, here it is:







      Looking at the same styling for the .:R.

      I feel you on the heat. Car is looking good so far.

      We had dinner out on the deck tonight and it was bad enough just sitting there.

      The waitress walked up to us and said, "You are our first customers to use the deck in three days."

      We went to sit on the chairs, which didn't have cushions, and I sat my tail bone like right on the metal.

      Of course after dinner, we sticker bombed the fairing and did the fender screw mod out in the heat.

      Yeah, I was shocked of that too. I ordered the firewall gaskets today, as well as the intake pipe with no noise pipe hole, for when I order the EVOMS intake.

      One thing I am concerned about, is that all the pictures I am seeing of the intake, shows the blue silicone tube instead of the black.

      They only sell black intakes now.

      Back when they were $360+, you had the option of a red, black or blue tube. You also got the filter sock with the deal.

      When they dropped the intakes to $295 or so, you lost all color options and you also lost the sock.

      Thus, all EVOMS are now standard black and come with a dry filter.

      Ordered the EVOMS intake today...thanks for reassuring me on that. I also have the noise pipe delete firewall clips and non noise pipe intake pipe coming in tomorrow as well. I just have to order the filter sock, but that is not a necessity.

      The car should be done through the shop today and detailed and good for my wife to take delivery of it tonight!

      Wait a minute, the sock intakes were the dry filter, the oiled filter didn't have a sock.

      To OP, I'd have gotten a Euro switch with coming home, so you can use the auto lights

      The new filters are dry filters and do not require a sock.

      I'm failing to see the relevance of your post.
