      I spend the money because tires are what keeps my car attached to the road. I see that as kind of important. It also makes me feel safe if I venture past the speed limit from time to time.

      you need to find somebody in your area with a vag-com. Its a cord that you can plug into your car with your computer and edit settings in the cars ecu. Just post on your local thread that youre looking with somebody with vagcom to disable your DRL's and somebody should have one. Otherwise if you beg your dealership they can do it as well, but probably wont.

      Hope that helped.

      Putting Some More work in today.. Painted the Lug bolt caps so my "white out" is perfect.

      Also put down some primer on a centercap to see how it would turn out.
