      Tyrolsport used the ones he makes for MK6's I believe on their Golf R project car and I believe he had success with them. Maybe hit up Mike and see if he has any insight

      If you don't mind, what did the entire process cost you? Tips, valance and labor? I too love the center exhaust look.

      Nothing special. Just your run of the mill GTI.

      So far the rear end is so much easier to bring around...but it could bet the inch of fresh snow we got last night

      I can't wait to have some dry, not frozen pavement to play on again, it feels like a lifetime ago

      I bought these tips, which are the same ones my manager used.

      http://www.ebay.com/itm/2X-Sliver-Ex...item23538f9952

      There's 2 different rear center OEM valences. I used 5G0071611GRU, this is the one without the "winglets" $264 plus paint

      The one with the "winglets" is 5G0071610BGRU $407. The "winglets" are to match up to the side skirts if the whole OEM kit is used. There's a guy on here with the kit running Tarmacs (nice car ) if you need visual reference, I'll try and find a pic. *found it



      Rear with "winglets"



      The local shop charged my manager $400 to build the system from the stock mid clamp location back, so it's easily reversed to put back to OEM. I believe he used a Borla muffler.

      Now I bought this set up off my manager, so I paid less than he did and prices may vary for your location. I do still have the exhaust tips I bought if you're interested lol

      Replaced the stock windshield washer flappy cap with a newer revised model. This one is hinged so that it stays open while pouring fluid! Can't believe it too this long for a redesign.

      Finally got around to get the Smoked tail lights from the good folks at Shopdap.com
      As well as the obdeleven tool.

      Have the harness too and will do the coding for the amber signals.

      Curious. Why did you buy it from Latvia instead of a US vendor? I know they are around $100 from the US ones. Is it significantly cheaper buying from the Euro vendor?

      I'll play too. Didn't install today but I gots one.


      Anyone else have issues with it coming loose? It technically has 3 attachment points, but our vehicles have only 2. I had to rig something up so it stays in place, no issues since.

      Which option did you get, 1 or 2? Trying to decide which brightness I want.
