If you have the MFA Cluster, you can't forget the Navi.

Heck, this should be a Sticky on the first page, and the FAQs too!

Great thread - thank you David.

I have one suggestion: how 'bout adding the Model/Year in the link title, since so many of these parts only "kinda" are in the same place or come apart the same way from one model to the next?

(I'm bumping the Aspherical/Split Mirrors thread in another window, even as you read this)

Question adding a spoiler...

2 things: for my brand new 06 Jetta tdi (black/beige)
1) Spoiler- (airfoil) Not for sure I want this, but was thinking of adding a spoiler to the rear, and was wondering how hard this would be for a decent do-it-yerselfer?
Of course I want it to look factory, so I have to get the paint match and probably have a body shop guy do it for me.
2) Mud flaps: probably hurt my gas-milage but I need these, living out in the country like I do. Are they hard to put on? Looks pretty simple!
Thanks in advance for any info that's helpful!

"Non TDI Upgrades A collection of non TDI engine upgrades, but upgrades for TDI vehicles"

You need to reword that. I am still reading it and not sure what it means.

TDI non-engine upgrades?

Upgrades from other cars that you can apply to a TDI?

I don't have the ability to change that. But will send a note to Fred. I'm not sure why it says that either.

I just added my CheckTempII install. Not a thorough how-to, just a high level of how I did it...
