How much were the grill inserts?


Just barely enough.:( I picked up the grille inserts at EG Emotion Garage for $28 tax included. I'll have to tell you all at one of our meets my experience there.:mad:

intekmdma, as for rock chips, I'm starting to see a few on the hood. Nothing major but, they're there.:(

Rock chips sucks... I have 3 on my hood and none on my bumper somehow. I had to touch up the chips. :( Oh well... Maybe it'll match the "14" on my hood. :funny:

Make sure you get those things properly aimed. I'll want to see the comparison between stock and e-codes.

The guage cluster I got at ABD RACING. The chrome ring trim around guage cluster I bought at http://www.TMTUNING.com. ABD Racing also sells it but its $30 more than TMTUNING. I recommend that if your going to order from TMTUNING you buy as much as you can. They are cheap but, they're in Germany. So, shipping takes about 2 weeks from Germany. It's a give and take.;)

Man, the reason I haven't posted this evening is because, I was installing the fog light harness. I'm tired.:aww: It's relatively easy but, unbolting or exploring for the first time the removal of some parts was the most annoying part and time consuming. Either way, if any of you need any help installing fogs, let me know. I can help avoid some of the headaches.:D I also installed the PIAA bulbs. The bulbs in the fogs are releasing about 5000k. Those things make the other Super Plasma PIAA bulbs look like they're stock yellow even though the Super Plasma's are illuminating at 4150k.:D

Anyhow, you'll all see it at night hopefully at a meet.:D

I do have cupholders under the armrest but, I like the ones up high on the dash. This way I don't really take my eyes off the road to look or feel down looking for my cup.;) Also, since there's dead space there, I figured I just put the cupholder in there and I can use the cupholder to hold other item's like a cell or FRS Radio on Caravans.:D

I use my pop-out cupholders to hold the FRS on drives. :) Cellphone gets tucked under the HVAC where the coinbox cover is.

Don't try putting a big gulp or supersize drink in the pop-out cupholder and take sharp turns. Trust me on this one. ;)

Cool, advice taken.;) Actually, there's a little round sponge thing that VWOA sells to put your cell phone in. The sponge then inserts into one of the cupholder slots. I wonder if it would fit in one of the cupholders on the dash without tipping over.:confused:

You don't need no stinkin' sponge. The phone would hold itself if it's big enough. :p
