Sorry for the delayed response, gents. In response to the exhaust inquiries:
1. Only the muffler was deleted. The shop rocked a couple of mandrel bends on some 2.5" diameter tubing, easy peesy.
2. Sound output is pleasant. There's a tiny amount of rumble as the car proceeds through 1st and 2nd and well into 3rd if you "get on it."
3. Cost was super reasonable (of course, this will vary from shop to shop). Basically, for the muffler delete, new tubing and bends, and chrome tip, I was at $160 OTD.
4. Unfortunately, I don't have any undercarriage shots. Next time I'm up on the rack (10k for my rotation/rebalance), I'll try to remember to snap some. I'm at 6k right now, but I've got a 2300+ mile round trip planned next week for work, so it will probably be sooner rather than later!
Had these installed the other day, got them here:Ordered aspherical mirrors. Had 'em on my old Mk6, and missed 'em ever since I got the new car.
Crappy cell pictures. They are tinted and its noticeable. They do eliminate the blind spot and they are definitely worth the upgrade, no more head turning! The image is stretched pass the line on both sides. The stretched image is not as big as on the MK5 I had, as the mirrors themselves are smaller on the mk7.Thanks!
That's a much cheaper option than:
Is the blue tint noticeable?
Also, does this virtually eliminate the blind spot? Even with your pictures, I'm having trouble visualizing the advantage (it doesn't appear to stretch the image outside that line like I expected it to).
Oh man, just noticed the GSW has different sized tails. Wonder if you guys will get LEDs...
Deautokey has led bulbs. Mine should be here today or Monday, can post some photos then.At this point everything I see there are no LED's for the GSW's. A friend has more than a connection in OEM parts and he doesn't show any available. If you look at all the pictures of the Euro cars they have the same tails. I will be looking for the replacement LED bulbs that one of the guys here put on his golf.
Mine were delivered to PO today. Hopefully, I can install them this weekend. I think the OEM taillights are already nice looking and these LED will just make them that much better.Deautokey has led bulbs. Mine should be here today or Monday, can post some photos then.
