I figure rather then creating a new topic with new pictures/mods each time, I'd just start a "build" thread. I'll just update here as things are changed added. So anyway, this first post will be extra long as it contains mods to date and they are as follows:
AFE Cat-back exhaust system
APR Stage 1 software
Koni coilover system
Neuspeed front and rear sway bars
Raderworks MTEN85 18X8 ET 42 wheels
BFG KDW II 215-40-18 tires
RNS-510 ver E (2012 Passat)
9W7 bluetooth module
High-line CECM upgrade (for lighting upgrades)
Paddle shifter steering wheel added
Hard-wired Escort 8500 X50 red
OEM Passat rain/light sensor for auto headlights/wipers, coming home, leaving home, etc
OEM GLI bi-xenon's
Projector fogs with yellow lamin-x (programmed for DRL and cornering lights)
Dark cherry Euro LED tail lights w/rear fog
Euro headlight switch with auto/coming home/leaving home
LED interior lights
LED license plate bulbs
LED parking lights
OEM GLI grill set (strip painted blue for clean diesel)

Feel free to PM me with any TDI related questions.
Car looks great! I just picked up a '10 Jetta TDI a month ago, I know later down the road I will want to install OEM LED tails. Did you have to do anything different during the install being that it is a 2010 with MKVI electronics? Or is it the same as any other MKV? Also, ECS and OEM Plus have the GLI lip kits as a set. I have already been looking into them for my car. The paint on the factory lower valances doesn't match perfectly on mine and it really bothers me.

Here's my writeup if you're bored and interested, lol: http://njsphoto.com/doctemp/Bi-Xenon%20Upgrade.pdf
Thank you! I should actually post a stock pic, but you guys all know what a stock Jetta looks like...
I am in the Albany area.
Cornering lights are a pretty cool feature that while the headlights are on and the fog lights are off, if you turn the blinker on and turn the steering wheel in that direction the fog light on that side will light up. This is supposed to add viability while turning at night. A lot of GM cars do that from the factory. Hope that made sense, lol.
It is indeed platinum gray.
Just ordered all the parts to install the rain/light sensor, auto dimming CC mirror and it'll be programmed to do all the neat coming home/leaving home, auto headlights, auto wipers, auto lights when raining and last but not least, close the windows/sunroof if it starts to rain! Man I love these sneaky little mods.
Got the car chipped this weekend at Waterfest with APR's recently released TDI software. I was actually the first customer .
