      Got tired of the rain sensing wipers waiting way too late to activate (even on most sensitive setting) so I coded them out. Now the switch is regular style: it sets the time interval between wipes.

      I just added the hitch, no wiring. I only plan to use it for a bike rack, so no wiring needed.

      I found the best deal on Amazon. Was $81 when I ordered it last week. Looks like it is $76 now

      Very simple install

      I installed Xpel headlight and foglight protection over the weekend. Purchased an '09 SE a few weeks ago. The headlights were in really nice condition and I wanted to keep them that way. The kit was obtained through Auto Anything and arrived quickly direct from Xpel.

      The install was not difficult, just takes some patience. First thing to do is mix some rubbing alcohol and water in a spray bottle. I used a sprayer from Home Depot. You also need a heat gun to form the material over curves and ridges. It needn't be real hot, a hair dryer will work. The kit includes a plastic squeegee.

      The headlights need to be cleaned really well, and dried dust-free. I used a microfiber cloth. Then spray your hands and fingers with alcohol (keeps fingerprints off the adhesive if you touch it). Peel off the backing paper and spray the adhesive side with the alcohol. Now the important part - position the material on the headlight. I aligned the lower edge, first where the straight portion meets the curve, and then the inner corner. Now you begin working the material flat with the squeegee, forcing out the liquid. Because the lens is a compound curve, the material will bow at the edges. Apply gentle heat and work the material flat with the squeegee. As the alcohol mixture is worked out, the material will lie flat and stick. Lastly, work on the top edge. It needs to be folded over a ridge. With heat and working with the squeegee, all will lie flat. It took maybe 20-25 minutes per headlight to work everything flat.

      I was apprehensive about the fogs. A small, recessed convex lens seemed difficult. However, they turned out to be easier than the headlights. Took maybe 5 minutes to apply, using heat and the corner of the squeegee.

      I put Xpel on my '01 Beetle TDI 11 years ago. It is still crystal clear today. Once its on, you don't notice its there.

      Please forgive me if I'm wrong but if those wheels in the picture were 19's then the correct profile tyre to maintain the OEM rolling radius would be 40 but in that picture it seems the profile it more like 35 or even 30. This would put the speedo out of synch, hence my comment.

      Put some stylish plate frames on that I took from a clients trade-in.

      I debadged the tailgate.

      I might put some stickers on the rear glass. I heard stickers make it go faster.

      I also found out how to use the MFA properly. Funny how I have to learn the complexities of the controls of a 7series but it took me 2400 miles to learn the Tig u wan.

      huh. I think I'm gonna pour myself a drink.

      Nice rims, what brand, size and offset, and are you running any spacers?

      Pics from an angle would be useful too.

      i got it on ebay... and i used a thin screw driver to release a couple of tabs that hold it in. on the upper part on the side of the card holders.... you need to release it then it will come out.. prob not the best way but it worked, then unplugged it and plugged the new one in and popped it back intio place...
