Default What did you do to your MKVI-A6 ~2010-2014 Golf family inc Jetta SportWagen Today?

Since I didn't find one in this forum, I figured I would start one.
This weekends shenanigans consisted of finishing the ClearBra to protect the headlights, tinted the windows, installed rubber Monster floor mats, installed the aluminum scratch plate on the rear bumper, installed a rear CarGo mat and building the keep/stay blocks.
Then, late Saturday night, after all the kids were in bed, I downloaded the stock map, paid the invoice, and shipped it off to Owain and Mark at Malone. I hope they get to it this week.
Then I researched the next set of upgrades. Planned upgrades include deletes at a reasonable price. Looking at DarkSide, Rawtek, and others.
I would like to add parking sensors and rear backup camera as well. Possibly some fog lights. Maybe Ill eventually look into some more decorating with ground effects, not super low, just something tasteful.

I got off work yesterday and noticed Mark@Malone sent my tune. Between kids and dinners I haven't had time to load them yet but am really excited to get a tune on the car again.

Thanks again Mark and Owain!

Cool Hey!

I also drive a SportWagen TDI. Pretty sweet car IMO. Iíve done quite a few things to mine nothing major yet as i havenít even taken it through itís first winter yet but Iíve noticed owning this car and being into modding cars and customizing cars thereís not a lot of other people out there that one own this car and two customize this car. So hereís a few things Iíve done to my mk6 SportWagen. I took those ugly roof rails off. I Cut the muffler off and replaced it with a 2.5 inch pipe to a 3in tip. I put a 6pc set of the interior lighting strips in. Iíve plastidipped my mirrors, parts of my door panels. And my front emblem. Iím planning on doing more to the interior and exterior paint job as the car is extremely monochromatic.

I'll attempt to set up the radio and phone on the new to me CPO JSW. That's plenty for now.

I think the wife & I will go to the sierra foothills today to see the snow we've been having. I used to enjoy rolling coal onto the following prious's in my 04' dirty diesel Passat on the grades. Oh well the 2011 probably wont accomplish that part.

Last night, I picked up my new CPO 2014 JSW (6-speed and no sunroof..hard to find). It has about 37,xxx miles and it seems to have been cared for. So, here we go!

Installed:

-Blizzak WS80 snow on steel rims
-VW steel wheel center caps
-IDParts winter front
-Flosser Ultra H7 low beams

I packed weather stripping around the passenger door so hopefully the wife will stop whining about the noise. Myself I have never heard it, even when sitting in that`seat.

Got some white lithium grease to lube up the door hinges. Having it sit for a while before buying it made the doors a little stiff and creaky. Also played with my new ODBEleven tool. Just gotta figure out why it didn't come with the 200 credits it should have, being a Pro.

@RiguyTDI - do you have pics of the top after the rail removal? Has it decreased wind noise?

I parked my Mk7 next to a Mk6 at lunch today... a pair of TDI Unicorns in the wild.

Sorry all, fell out of the innerwebz for a tic.

It has a bit more pull. Had a Focus ST try and walk away from me, fortunately walked him; in a wagon!

Also got tied up with a newer suburban that wouldn't let anyone pass on the right. we ran up until their governor cut fuel and I kept going.

Now time to order my darkside downpipe and go to the next stage. I loved the Stage2 without deletes on my 2011 jetta. This one seems a little slower, but it could be because of the difference in weight of the car.
