Yep, I'll be stealing it away from the wife and bringing it! DLC 1019s, stage one from Drivbiwire to keep it mild and maximize MPG. I really need to get another TDI to build for power.
I got good reviews off of the Vortex for LeatherSeats.com...talked to them on color selection, etc...nice folks. It's not absolutely perfect but I'm extremely happy with the quality. Bought a new seat bottom cushion and added seat heaters. Not the best pix...just finished up last weekend and need to take new pix...most of the creases are now gone and they feel awesome..hug and grip a ton better than I ever thought the stock seats could.

I'd like to come by on Sunday to hang out for a while and pickup an EVO skidplate. I assume way to handle this is order thru Kerma and mention the group buy then just show up at the GTG?

The front bumper is cake. just a few screws () and it's off. There will be people there to help you with that.

Thanks, Al. it's common sense, 2 or 3 tiny metal clasps rubbing back and forth across the clear coat/paint while they're rubbing on one another..back and forth, up and down, all around! And don't even get me started on the dents and down-to-the-primer scratches that can happen on the bumper/hood if they're wearing heels!

This link is ONLY FOR ZIPPY, and I'm taking the link down in a few days after Zippy tells me that she's reviewed it for car damage. No I'm not kidding -- this is for Zippy only . . .
Link removed so people will think I'm a clean cut, nice, family guy type -- Zippy can tell you about the link . . .
After she's reviewed it, she will tell you whether it's appropriate viewing for the rest of you.
