      The hoses are to thick to make the engine cover clip in, I will get an intake and that will take care of that issue.

      The return line just runs back right next to the other line. The drain port I will be making a remote drain for under the car.

      Disconnected cable to sound generator and removed box.

      Installed rear CarGo mat.

      My wife and daughter drove the car today for the first time. Both came back with very large smiles on their faces.

      Installed the Euroswitch for the LED tails with fogs, LED footwell lights, disabled the Soundaktor and had a blast driving around on the outskirts of town getting a feel for what this car is capable of.
      A sure way of providing a huge grin on my face through some twisties just lov'in this car!

      Can't wait to get the APR Stage 1+ upgrades, HPA dogbone mount and DieselGeek SS in next. Life is good
      Born into a VW family, what can I say?

      Installed some smoked sidemarkers from oemplus. Fitment was about 99% perfect, don't know why everyone's always complaining about them.

      Finally ditched my temp tag and installed an R license frame with my custom vanity plate. Still haven't put on the USMillworks front plate yet...I may wait until I get stopped by the cops.

      Also have a Dieselgeek short shifter waiting for my decision to install it or sell it.

      Finally crossed over 500 miles; now I can drive it like I stole it, right?

      Why would you buy it just to sell it? I don't remember seeing anything negative about it.
