      I think sunroof only closes though, can't get it to open when the windows are also opening
      Yup that's correct, you can't open the sunroof but u can close it.

      Today I got her cleaned up ready to clay bar / Zaino tomorrow. First time I have tried to detail a white car though... so many little rust dots that just don't seem to want to come off. Hopefully the clay bar will do better.

      Also discovered it's pretty difficult to get the slots in the stock rims clean. My fat fingers are hopeless... May need to invest in something that can get into the ends of them.

      Soon she will gleam though! Tomorrow!

      just rolled 500 miles..
      got my vag com cable today so I enabled the remote window operation and disabled the seat belt alarm.. Any other suggestions? I tried bumping the convenience turn signals up to 5 blinks, but it didn't take.

      The clear bra got finished today. My guy managed to do the whole hood with one piece and also one piece for the front bumper, so no lines on either! Of course the fenders have lines though because I just had the front done but, as usual you really have to be looking to find them.

      Also installed the correct Golf R Euro switch along with the Euro LED tails with rear fog and the wiring.

      Hard wired my Passport 9500ix radar detector.

      Turned off the damn horn confirmation when you lock the doors along with some other vag-com tweaks.

      Gave her a bath and cleaned the windows real good since the inside had a good amount of film on them.

      Tomorrow it'll get the Jeff's werkstat treatment with the prime polish and jett sealant.

      iThread, maybe you can save me a couple of minutes. Which wire did you tap into for the 9500ix install? Thanks and congrats!

      Looking at the fuse panel, the first 10A fuse on the top row. So, the top left fuse.

      Threw in the PODI FSI boost tap... and plumbed all the Boost gauge stuff in, just need to do some wiring tomorrow. Newsouth gauge pod came in, so ready to have my gauge working tomorrow. And my AFE dry high flow filter has been swapped for the OEM air filter...

      Just want my HPFP to get back from APR tomorrow! And then flashing on Wednesday!

      Does anyone want me to do a mini-writeup on where I mounted and routed my wires/vac lines?

      I'd definitely be interested in a write-up. I found some DIYs elsewhere, but nothing R-specific, so this would definitely save some time.

      Made appointment to get my RB's windows tinted on Saturday.

      3M Color Stable, 35% side, still pondering if I want the back window darker or if that will look off...

      What is the convenience turn signal? Sounds simple but I don't get what or why we change it.

      If you tap the turn signal in either direction, it blinks 3 times (for lane changes), as opposed to flicking it on all the way for a turn or something.
