I think the idea of a different color roof is neat. When I was at dealer a couple weeks ago, they had a Jetta SE on the floor and the roof was painted black,forgot what color car was. It had black rims, and it looked pretty sharp....

* Rotated tires. Found out my lugnut wrench was not included. Luckily I was at home, and not on the side of a road
* Opened up the subwoofer and added some batting - nice tighter bass punch now
* Got her steam washed today!

interesting about the batting
Did you add it to the spare tire well or actually open up the subwoofer itself and stuff it?

Showing my age here, but why, just why?

I live in the city, and when I can hear some yahoo's subwoofer from a couple of blocks away, I wish I had a rocket launcher. (Thank you, Bruce Cockburn...)

Well worth the $8 at from the craft store. took about 15 min to shove in half the bag and poke it around the enclosure. its what a 5-6" driver in a relatively thin plastic enclosure.

I just feel bad for our dog that usually tries to sleep on top of the sub when were on roads trips.

What kind of "batting" are you using? Is it just standard pillow filling, or is it an acoustic grade?

Explain this to me, please.
Like, how much would one expect to pay for this? Will it hold up (literally and figuratively) as well as factory (assuming installer knew what s/he was doing)?

Recently drove a car with black headliner / plastics and oh-my - that's a sweet look!

Well it wasn't today, but got tired of the winter wheels and weather looks like it is not going to require salt anymore. So I put these on, and the springs were done back in early march//almost there....[IMG][/IMG]

believe its an OEM part from the Golf R vairant (R wagon) shipping's gotta be a bear, I'd also love a black headliner just not what it'd cost to get it.

My GTI (2016) has the black headliner and the patterned black trim on the dash as well as plaid seating and red led door card and sill highlights. It’s sweet.
