Small updates, but still updates.
R/Golf Grille on
LED tails aren't in the cards in the foreseeable future, so made my old all-reds:
Still need a wet sand and buff, but liking the look so far.
Hopefully some Karthoums, OEM roof rack, yellow lamin-x on front fogs are the next mods...
There's a few drips up close. Just need to wetsand them a bit.
CSG Votex lip acquired and will be on soon.
Mate the Golf R front grille badge (that came with my Golf R grille I bought) to a GTI front grille badge.
Main badge differences:
- GTI grille badge clips in
- R badge has a torx screw holding it in from behind.
- Credit Card
- Flat head screwdriver
- 3M emblem adhesive
1. Used the credit card to pry the R badge away from it's backing.
2. Used the flat head screw driver to get the GTI badge off (3 clips on the back) which I broke, but wasn't going to need/use them anyway.
3. Liberally apply emblem adhesive to the R plastic badge backing.
4. Press on GTI badge
5. Put face down and allow to dry.
6. Install and enjoy your craftiness.
Pics to follow once the badge dries and is installed.

Took the car to the dealer for several issues last week since I pay extra money for the CPO warranty and I wanted them addressed.
Overall, just disappointed with the sales experience and VW service still continues to be awful.
Details of the CPO were never explained to me and I still have yet to receive documentation on it and I've asked the dealer more than twice now. Never was explained to me that every time I take it to the dealer I'm responsible for a deductible. I don't mind the $50, but how about you tell me this so I'm aware?!
Second trip to the dealer for service in 2 months/4,000 miles. It took the dealer three days to fix a window regulator and then they didn't even have the courtesy to call me and let me know the car is done. I had to call them.
Just bored with this car and poor customer service all around.
Calling it quits on this car after another trip to the dealer this week.
Car needed a waterpump at 44,000 miles. Dealer replaced it, found out the new one was leaking so they had to put ANOTHER new pump in.
Picking up a 2012 A4 6-speed with 5,500 miles.
I wanted to like this car, but it's starting to snowball in repairs and I'm not riding out all the things bound to go wrong.
