Had the alignment done by Hewlett VW today and programmed my new key from AARodriguez. $99 for the alignment and $49 for the key immobilizer programming.
New front grill and fog lights installed.
Side view in the rain after lift.
Alignment before and after with 2" lift.
When new tires are needed I will probably go to larger diameter, higher sidewall tires. Michelin Defender 215/65R16 maybe. 24.9" diameter vs 27" diameter, and 1" less tread width and 66 fewer revs. Weight is 1 lb less.
Airbag fault showed up. Dealer said seat belt switch and cleared for me. Came back on on the ride home. Will have to scan and check it out myself. Seats need to come out anyway to disassemble the console for the rear ashtray/powerpoint and rear panel replacement.
Dealer and techs really liked my Beetle. Service adviser noticed the foggy headlights and wanted to sell me the polishing job. He wasn't surprised when I told him I already had new ones at home waiting to install when the rain quits. Morimoto projectors and shrouds came in as well. The old OEM will be reworked to fit them. FX-R's with MC-R shrouds. That will take a while.
