The Hyundai Santa Fe and Sonata are owned by my GF's parents which is where we store the R in the Winter.
Here are my Winer cars:
2016 Golf R, 44K miles almost paid off, Sunday car
2016 Sportwagen, 80K miles, currently on storage mode until we pay it off this year then it's going for sale. Heather doesn't like keeping her cars beyond 90K miles
2015 Ford Escape, 275K miles, fleet vehicle I got for $500 2 years ago which is Winter car only, about 6K a year
2019 Hyundai Ioniq, $75 a month lease, 12K miles a year, 36 months and it's in my driveway year round but it's ONLY a commuter since it's maximum range is 136 miles and if it's below freezing and the heat is on, it gets 65 miles of range so it never leaves the city but since we over-produce with our solar panels, it's a fantastic daily driver. That's not a typo, $75 a month, It was $99 a month w/ $0 down but I put some money down to offset the monthly payment.
So we do have a Hyundai in the house but purely due to the insane lease price. I keep threatening to sell the Golf R but I love it so much.

many great transportation tools in my life but I think Iíve hit the sweet spot with my 17 DSG R. Itís an early Unicorn model with the last of the analog dashs, beautiful, frameless, thin rear view mirror without camera, no park distance warts on the bumpers, spare tire, low profile Euro head rests and several nice OBD11 coding mods to silence the seatbelt alarm, door alarm & especially the soundakator. The best way to explain it is - the best features of all the cars Iíve owned rolled into one. Iím going to need a few burial plots because theyíre going to burry me in the R. It will be a quick ride to heaven (or wherever Iím going)!

iím doing this as well with KWĎs right now. The ride quality is already 10 times better than OEM struts with lowering springs.
I brought my car to the shop and installed the front along with super pro sway bar and links and super pro strut mount tops. I watched your video and an interesting point that stood out to me was the fact you said it took the mechanic 11 hours to do the job. At first I thought to myself "thatís way too long", but after having done it myself and taking 10 hours to do the front alone, I donít think he was too far off. (I do take my Time though and had never done sway bar end links before). Hopefully thatíll make you feel a little bit better about the install cost. .
I'm having major issues with the set up I just installed though... The camber puts the sway bar end links WAY too close to the interior wheel well chassis. Iím getting major damage-inducing contact. Super pro wants you to mount the passenger side to the front of struts the sway bar tab, but there is no way this is going to work as I noticed VW scalloped out a little room in the wheel well for the sway bar being attached to the back of the strut tab (for the passenger side specifically). iím going to have to mod the tab to move the link point inward so there is no contact. What a headache. iíll probably do a post on it a little bit later, complete with video, so other people can avoid the issue.
