Quality items. And I'm glad to see you ran the lines the way you did for the catch.
Yeah, was shown like that in the instructions which looks the best anyway. They are some pretty lines though, never seen such lines before in my life.

Great progress. You can add me to the list of people that are planning to do the USB and AUX cable upgrades. I installed a garage door opener in the 2nd slot just before winter, these two will finish it off nicely.

How do you like the StopTechs? I'm waiting on my new wheels to come in around the end of this month before ordering a StopTech system too.

I like em, compared to the stock ones, they're pretty good and much better pedal feel. They do need some heat before they bite hard though, at least with the stoptech pads that come with the BBK kit.

Plus, the red matches lovely with the rear ones.

heyyy, can you provide links to where I can get the correct CAN BUS LED bulbs for my interior and plate lights?
I ordered mine from the German eBay, but since you're in the US I doubt that would be helpful at all.

But, I think the site http://deautokey.com/ is your best choice, yet I don't know of any other so take it with a grain of salt.

Bought some.. err.. lube

For the sunroof, also got some other maintenance stuff, like the cabin filter, oil filter, and some plastic dash tools, rev d DV and tiguan pipe.

Changed cabin air filter and put in an aux cable in the radio, so other people can put music on during trips or something. Ordered a ptp blanket that covers the back of the engine bay, a DM K04+ tune (see how it goes) and a DoubleApex aux port so it integrates the new aux cable perfectly in the center front console.

To-do list (more of a note for myself):

buy a 3 bar MAP sensor
lube sunroof (it started raining before I had the chance)
install tiguan pipe (forge one is leaking by the MAP sensor)
debating to install a rev D DV over the Forge one
ptp turbo blanket since last year still needs to be put on
spark plugs need changing
see about exhaust fitment (exhaust tips too low for my taste)
think about tinting rear windows
front plate mount stuff
thinking about some R32 rear tail lights
one door sill is damaged and growing in size and the right side mirror has some scratches..
cheapest way to get wheels to Elliott
take care of interior for sunday's meet.
