Absolutely.....was hoping to lower before the shots, but can take a few. The 235 definitely makes the wheel look wider

I built my own USB Kit for the center console, for about $20, and installed it. Setup so USB always hot which allows me to charge my phone even with the car off.
Also got a shorter charging cable for the iPhone that I use as a monitor/gauges and finished monitor install.



Also finally pulled the trigger and ordered a set of LED Tails

Took off the winter tires/wheels. My stock summer wheels have a fresh coat of plasti dip and new Michelin Extremecontact DWS-06 paid for by my VW card. Also installed fog lights today.

thanks. Must have just watched a Michelin commercial or something. Wheels have black plasti-dip with several coats of graphite metalizer.

Did you also delete the egr cooler? I have the same race pipe sitting in my garage waiting to be installed. I will be deleting the cooler as well but am still in the researching phase of it.

Last week I drove out to AARodriguez Corp (fixmyvw.com) and had the Malone Stage 2 tune and DSG tune installed and picked up a Buzzken DPF delete and midpipe. I did the exhaust work at home over the weekend. I left the stock muffler on for now. Below is a series of before and after videos I made. Exhaust sound is still very quiet but the performance improvement is impressive. I did a write-up with photos of how to remove the DPF and install the Buzzken downpipe and will publish it soon.

I also performed the 120K service on my car including DSG fluid change and air filter. I'll be changing the fuel filter and cabin filter soon as well once I have a chance to do it.
