      Yeah if you mess up you are totally screwed! Extremely sticky adhesive. I got it centered and the left and right feels flush. The center however, is ever so slightly away from the trunk so there's a flex if I push down. Could be worse though.

      I don't think anyone would notice unless I pointed it out

      Almost got those wheels myself, if you have a better profile picture that would be great. They are very similar to the pretorias, and fairly light weight as well at 21lb for 19". Just no idea how it looks on a real passat. I would get the silver version. Wonder if there is a VW center cap for this wheel.

      Oh wow the gap on the left side is what I have but it's equal on both. I bet it's because I don't have the middle flush.

      I had to take my off about a day after I installed it, but not because it was off but because of my wrap that I had to remove! You can take it off, clean the double sided tape from the spoiler and car (whatever left of it) apply new tape and reinstall it!
      I know with my OCD I wouldn't be able to live with that but that just me!
      I actually was thinking to get new spoiler (if still available) it's probably gonna be cheaper than buying new double sided tape

      we'll see...

      EDIT:
      just called my local dealer and they still available, so I ordered another one $10.61 with taxes, believe it or not but this is cheaper than buying new double sided tape!

      Now I’m kind of wishing I had bought a white or black Passat so I could easily match a spoiler!!! Good luck with this crazy blue color I have

      Still love the blue tho

      I am considering going black and blue tho. Black rims, blackout all the chrome, dark tint, black spoiler. Hmmm.....

      I just ordered myself a few... sales like these come around only once, that's my experience with VW when they try to get rid of inventory. Remember the $49 Driver Gear springs deals?

      Oh trust me, I've capitalized on there clearance sales multiple times (Tiguan Savannah wheels, MK6 rear window blinds, etc. ).

      Black mirrors might set it off nicely too.

      Did the kit come with everything you need to get them working? Can you provide some pointers on the install? I really like the look of these.

      Does anybody know where I can find this at? I I want it for my 17 Passat r

      The headlights came "pre wired" and with additional cable I still haven't used! I had some issues at the beginning with the install where I couldn't get low beams to work. Ended up rewiring the headlight connectors and now it works but still not 100%. I can't get DRLs to stay on by themselves and I don't think there are marker lights in these headlights! So during the day if I want DRLs to work I have to turn switch to ON position but it will turn on DRLs with low beams, at night AUTO function works as it should! I also have errors on my dash relating to DRLs and markers, I'm planning to look at the wiring again but just haven't had a chance yet.

      Tore off rear spoiler #1...

      Installed rear spiler #2. Had it perfectly centered and taped with painters tape. Pulled the plastic off the 3M tape, and dang if it didn't shift on me again. About 1/16" gap on one side. But it fits down better in the center than #1 did, so it's good enough for me.
