      Awesome find on the rain-sensing wiper activation!

      Another request/mod would be how to disable the auto-shutoff when entering the car after using remote-start. Can that be done with the VAG-COM?

      Nice car Andy! I'm going to miss the yellow one though.

      NEXT MOD: LOWER IT!

      NICE! Sounds a lot like my old 04 R32 with the flapper mod...Might be a bit too loud for everyday for me though....

      Let us know what you think over a few days or so!

      They dont, but I am just gonna get the ones for the 2009 Passat VR6 or the CC VR6 Sport... Same stuff... When I was installing the R32 Brakes I took a look at the shocks and all... It all looks the same.
      So just like I took a chance with the R32 Brakes I will do the same with the Coil's

      But this wont happen for another month or two....

      Good to know! I am going straight to a set of 20's, but want to make sure I can lower the vehicle ASAP when I do that. I am talking to a few people about what springs to go, but if it looks like the B6 stuff, should not be a problem!
