The reflectors all over this car would make sense on a friggen' school bus but it seems like a bit of overkill on the .:R. Before anyone says anything, I understand the value in them as a safety measure etc, but I still think they are obnoxious and whats worse, they kill the beautiful lines of the MK6. I resolved the issue by getting the VS Cov.:R Ups (master pack) for the .:R The company that makes them is in my neighborhood and they were pretty inexpensive so I just went with it. They do either smoked or solids for all the plastic lenses on our car.
The Cov.:R Ups master-pack included:
-Rear foglight strips
-Rear valance reflector black-outs
-Front side-marker black-outs
-Front LED DRL strips
Since he's close by I had him install those and smoke out my headlights too, brah! Looks way meaner now. I like how the smoked tints dull down the plastic-y look of the lenses. He makes these packs in all kinds of colors and tints.
Hit up Lyle @ Vinyl Styles for more info. He'll sort out pricing etc and they are all available now.
Here is a vid of the install on my car. I whipped it together in a half day but it still gives a good idea of how easy it is to install.

The packages are starting to show up a bit more now. This was todays gem.
... and now the shelves are looking stocked a bit better for the big power build up that starts in 2 weeks.

Another brown box delivered by a man in a brown uniform, driving a brown truck. I am reeeaaaally psyched about this one. I was watching Dieselgeek back when I had the DSG in my TTS and couldn't utilize this bit of kit. Now I can!
Dieselgeek Sigma 6-speed short shifter:
I learned about them here:
Probably the only time these two will ever be in the same pic together. The TTS goes back to stock early next week and then off to Autotrader she goes....
I am having dangerous thoughts.... Thoughts of taking the HRE c93s from my TTS (that are about to be retrofitted to Golf .:R spec's down at HRE) and selling them to get some of these Vintage series 505's.
My buddy Mr. Fernando pchopped these onto a 2-door but at least it gives us an idea? Yay? Nay?
