      ran into a few snags on it: there is an 8 inch gap from where the down pipe ends and the exhaust begins, the stock intercooler had a 15mm coating of watery poo build up when it was pulled for the aftermarket one to go in (pics in thread in signature), and I realized that logs are needed before the tuning can beginthis is my first time really going deep into engine mods as I only had a 2.5L before getting my TDi.

      Got some paint work done to clean up my fenders until I get new fenders and do the whole front end, but this will keep me happy for now

      I cleaned it up a little, in and out.

      these are absolutely useful but with the way the mirror cap is designed i tend to find that i pick up more of the black plastic in the outer corner...now on the mk5 they were amazing lol.

      What I’m worried about these is peeling or fading. We have a Mk6 in the shop that looks like that’s happening. Not sure if they are the same ones though. If that happens I’ll get the OEM blind spots.

      Been out of my MK6 for a while, but I bought the blue tinted ones because I liked the color, and it night, it was easy on the eyes. Within a year one side was already fading and changing color. I feel like I always get burned when I try to go off brand, so now I just go directly to the OEM first as it will likely save me money in long run. I loved my OEM aspherical mirrors for the MK6 and MK7 I owned.

      I had those mirrors so perfectly set up, you would only have to turn your head from left to right and could see everything behind and to the side of you. The second I lost sight of a car in a mirror, it was in my peripherals. I really miss those mirrors, though they are a little disorienting until you get used to the curve.

      I’m liking them so far Still not used to them when backing into a parking spot, the white lines bend. Getting used to it.

      Car is in getting ST coilovers removed and stock VW parts reinstalled.
      The ST coilovers are great for handling and looks, but are very rough riding and are too low even cranked as high as they go.
      The front of my car is slowly being ground away by driveway, speed bumps and parking ramps. The tires rub the front fenders enough to cause damage to both tires and the fenders.
      Rear tires scrub in corners.
      Car has an ST rear sway bar that helped the rear scrubbing some but not enough.
      Anyone thinking of dropping your car should be cognizant of these negatives.

      I think a lot of people are aware lol.

      I went the spring/shocks route w/ Neuspeed sports and Koni shocks. Nice improvement over stock and the ride isn’t bad IMO. But the negative is that it looks stock. Bet it’s less than an inch drop, which really isn’t a “drop” imo lol.

      i did the springs/shocks route as well, went with H&R super sport kit matched up with their 24mm adjustable rear sway bar. the ride quality is a bit rough on the super sport kit but i dont have any rubbing issues or anything like that

      also ordered my oil change kit and a fuel filter, looking at getting that taken care of soon as well as ordering the timing belt kit to get taken care of in the future but i gotta wait and see how my job fairs and if it is secure or not

      Installed ARM racing downpipe, Flashed ECU with Cobb Accessport-Stage 2 Stratified Tune, and Dieselgeek Sigma Six shifter.

      Made a world of difference. The Stratified tune is exceptionally good. Worlds better than the Cobb stage 2. If you are considering an Accessport, and don't buy it from Stratified with their tune, you are doing yourself a disservice.

      The ARM catted downpipe is a very well built piece, also. Perfect fit and very nice welds. Amazing for the price.
