Picked up 2 sets of 16's (summers pictured) so I can start planning big brakes. I've had them on for a couple days now and I'm very glad I went with 16's, they really are the sweet spot between ride and performance.

The dash cam got a 1 out of 5 stars on that website. It won't show the comments/reviews unless I log into the site. What is your take so far on that cam?

Their site sucks, I can't read the reviews and I have an account!

I'm not electronics geek but, it does what I wanted. The auto on/off is what appeals to me most. I haven't even plugged it into my pc yet to check picture quality. I figure it doesn't matter how low the picture quality is as long as it shows who hit who.

I occasionally need to load my Jetta to the roof and beyond. Wife, two kids, Golden retriever, 4 bikes, 4 coolers, 4 suitcases. I picked up this handy 21lbs (carries 250lbs) aluminum roof rack on sale for $100. I have to tarp it to protect the luggage but, I'll only use it for that 2-3 times per summer. Rest of the time it'll be off the car.

I mounted my phone holder on a flex tube so I can move it around and installed a Dension adapter I picked up from Enfig for $69. Easy install and works great.

Most of the time my back seats are folded down for my dog. She rides with me most days. I also carry a lot of tools for my trade so I built a divider to keep her safe. The seats just fold back up with out removing the divider. I haven't carpeted it yet as I might replace it with a sub-woofer box.



Lazy dog!

I picked up an aluminum skid plate from a local gentleman here on TDI Club. Fits well and it's really light.

Replaced my in-tank lift pump. She's running much better now! Sadly I still have a slight hesitation around 2k. I'm gonna have to clean my turbo and intake next. I also did a ventectomy today.

I'm lovin' the rotors. Super smooth. The vents make a cool noise when I get on 'em. Having the non contact surfaces remain rust free is really nice as well. Should look cool when my mags go back on in the spring.

I used my cargo tray on Dec 22 to deliver food and toys to families in need here in the big smoke. The tray worked a charm and my 2 little Grinchs had a good time and felt good about themselves afterward.

Here's a couple pics of my frostheater plug. I back into my driveway as there's junior school very close. I haven't driven away with it plugged in yet ( oops; just jinksed myself) but, I'm hoping the bumper flexes enough to release the plug w/o damage.

I picked up a full set of leather GTI seats from PHAT_DUB today. Just had to switch out the seat belt latches as my car has the newer 4 wire connectors. Very pleased to have gotten the exact seats I wanted! Thanks Dennis!
