      What accessories/mods are on your B7? Here's what I think I noticed:

      Cargo mat
      Cargo blacks
      Grocery bag hook
      Door sills (can I see a pic I'm debating getting them)
      Rear lip spoiler
      Sport pedals
      Monster mats
      New fog bulbs
      New parking light bulbs
      Euro switch
      Bumper cover
      First aid kit
      LED interior lights
      LED license plate lights
      Tints


      Anything else ?

      I'm quite envious of your accessory collection I must say

      I noticed the sill plates are installed in the wrong area; They're supposed to be on the painted part of the sill not the plastic part; Did you install them yourself? Also I see you have the plate frame do you have:


      Wheel locks
      Cargo net
      Engine heater
      Stem caps
      Warning triangle
      Torch flashlight


      That would make you have everything sans wind deflectors and the nonavailable splash guards!

      I installed the door sill o the plastic because it can be done earthier way, paint area or plastic trim area. My Touareg has it form factory on the plastic trim area, also on the instruction and picture of the door sill (i have the B6 door sill model from ECStuning.com) shows them installed on the plastic trim tea as I did myself. I think like better on the plastic since that area is higher and more expose to be scratched. Before I pill the adhesive I put them in the paint area but obviously I finally decide to installed them on the plastic trim area.

      Kchorro I saw you have two grocery hooks, can you take a pic of the one on passenger side one. I installed one on the driver side and wanted to do the passenger side but I not sure about drilling holes back there to do so. If I can see how you did yours might decide to do it on mine.

      Gwernerjr the PIAA bulbs for the plate lights would be cheaper but if you are dead set on LED plate lights here is what I did http://www.myturbodiesel.com/forum/f...-lights-11865/
      Euro switch, 30% 3M nano ceramic tint, Chinese BiXenon headlights and LED tail lights, H&R springs, paddle shifter steering from V6, 20" Giovanna Kilis wheels, 225/35ZR20 Conti DWS tires

      Wowie zowie you are my B7 accessory idol! You don't have the cargo net though? You have practically everything possible! That is too cool! And I can see what you are saying about the plastic part getting more scuffs then the metal part since it's higher. I may just leave my car completely stock though with no mods or accessories at all because I'm going to want to do what you did and get literally everything which will cost me plenty more then I should spend on a leased car

      Here are the pictures showing the passenger side hook and one showing the driver side hook.
      just put it where you wanted it and make some hole with a small drill bit depending of your screw size or not bigger than that.. and voila ! just like OEM. it does not need the click in-between the hook and the metal back panel... I used a regular screw. It works perfect.
      if you need help let me know...

      I believe that it is an option that you have to select before it produces the embed code, to pics large versus medium versus small; At least that is how it is for me on my flickr account. I wish there was an easier way to upload pictures.

      I would imagine so as my 3.6 has a battery cover like a door on the left since the battery is in the trunk on the VR6 model. There must be a part number for it somewhere.


      Now if I could only find the part numbers for the carbon fiber trim I'd be set... Or maybe a Canadian might be up to trade...

      I use photobucket and upload 1M photo files, then use the IMG code.

      Decided not to go with the TDI because it would take forever to get one. Here's what he picked up last night.

      check out your other thread, i posted how you can post pictures. use facebook as your photo uploader. and you can always delete the picture on facebook after posting, that will not affect the pics in our forum.

      Love that you have the two passats that's so cool! If you had got the TDI then I could've taken pics with you (i'd have to drive across country haha) and it would've been 2.5 S, TDI SE, and 3.6 SEL a little of everything! But I can understand not wanting to wait for the TDI. Congratulations on your new B7!!!

      Nice! Congrats! I've debated on getting a 2nd Passat bc my wife's car is starting to cost too much to maintain.

      Taptalk app on a snartphone. Takes only 2 clicks. Either upload from gallery, or right from the camera.

      I'll second the Photobucket suggestion.. Been using it for years, and they do have an App for the iPhone so you can take and post pictures without having to go through a computer..

      Changed out all interior lights to LED and most of the headlights. Euroswitch installed this past week, ordered springs yesterday and getting ready to order rims Monday.

      I will vote for the photobucket option, download the photobucket app for iPhone and it will generate all the links you need to post a photo with tapatalk.

      Really I have never heard anyone ask another person what kind of wheels are those not even on bicycles, lol.

      O well probably some getting some reps keeping it simple on this vw, in the past I have wasted to much money on Wheels--lol.
