The roof still pending and I am not expecting to complete the process before 2 weeks!
I found that the front pumper must be replaced as there are lots of cracks inside it, and I don't wanna go for the R style as I like having fog lights & DRL not only DRL.
I want to go for Scirocco rear diffuser conversion to r style, but I couldn't find yet a rubber one on the internet.

more is coming :wink:

It's around $1000 if you will use the original material or the highest quality one available in the market.

After swapping the suspension & brakes I decided to give it a shower and car care too [emoji7]











After the shower I started again to think about keeping it as stock GTI and don't sell it [emoji848]

Here is one of the best pieces I have till now "iABED 1.8T oil filter housing", it replaces the conversion plate and the OEM 1.8T oil filter housing, allows more space before touching the throttle body, I will write a complete review of it after completing the parts installation.

Before installation:









After installation:












The Mishimoto oil cooler sandwich is installed in the above pics, in my opinion if the new version of iABED plate can include the IN & OUT lines for the oil cooler then it will be incredible as it will save more space and replacing 3 pieces instead of 2. But, to be honest it wasn't in the initial design.

More is coming [emoji6]

Issam, is it possible to have a new version including the IN & OUT ports/lines for the oil cooler?
It will save more space and It will be a complete solution in my opinion.
