Default What did you do to your MK7 today?

Added some rear bumper/hatch protection using plastidip instead of 3M clear.
A bit hard to see but the matte finish looks great and will easily peel off should I wish to remove it.

That is a great idea, thank you! I have a gallon of clear plasti dip, and that area has been worrying me. Didn't even think to solve it that way.

Super easy, just tape off the area you want covered, spray it on and remove the tape
It may look like crap when wet almost like orange peel but when it cures it's like flat black paint.
Best thing is of you don't like it simply peel it off without any chemicals.

Got my rear washer nozzle replaced, new driver's side wiper and the proper iPhone 5S connector cable for the car. It's the green one, as the white ones don't work, despite having the proper lighting connector. Dealer gave to me for free in exchange for the other one.

Did you get a part number for the iPhone connector? Or is this something the dealership would know if I just describe it as the green connector?

Sorry, I should have snapped a picture of the box it came in.

However, they should know or be able to figure it out.

After four days from when I picked my '15 white SEL up at the dealership, I was itching to wash and wax it with 3M Perfect-It. Contrary to some of the reviews I had read of the wax, it actually applied and buffed very easily. The result isn't as obvious on white as on some of metallic colors but I'm just happy to add a layer of protection to the paint. Weather and other hazards are pretty tough on cars here in New Jersey.
