      Nice, how does it feel compared to your 1M?
      That's a tough comparison. The 1M has Motons and a tune (353 hp / 403 torque at the wheels) so although the R feels quick it isn't in the same league as the 1M. The R is my daily driver so I'm trying to avoid mods. I suspect that will be a challenge.

      Nice, I still haven't done any hard launches in mine. How do it pull?
      Very smooth! I tried it at around 4K but it bogged down so the next time I went up a bit and it was much better. I think 4800-5K is the magic spot for the best standing launch.

      So you got the first one, congrats. I'm on the list there too, I got my MKV R there and my 1.8T.

      ^ Nice, so that's about a 5.7 second 0-60?

      Yes and TC was off. A few more tenths might be had with higher revs but I didn't want to find out.

      How was applying the film to the headlight? I was thinking of doing this at some point....

      Soon I will have plenty of them in stock soon.

      Full RVC kits as well along with the Drain Tube which can only be ordered in EU countries it seems.

      Those actually look way better on the car than I would have expected!

      Would you mind taking a shot of the driver's side footwell, too?

      Please post the coding procedure to remove that. I'd like to be able to do that too as soon as I do my install. Thanks!

      What type of clear bra did you end up doing? I've got an appointment tuesday for the 3M one.

      Used vag-com to code remote window open and close with key fob and changed comfort blinkers to 4.

      Waiting on some additional feedback from Ross tech on the led drl intensity and the bulb out code for the tails.
