I meant to add and don't feel like editing... I believe the people that get a strong green tint are just not doing a good job of installing the film. Since it's pre-cut to go between the louvers, if you don't line it up just right, it's possible that more of the blue-ish light could leak out and make it a stronger green.

If I did it again, I'd order the universal sheets of Lamin-x and remove the fog housing to cover the entire lens.

Following up on this... No real color adjustments on this. White balance was set to auto. only adjusted exposure and contrast a bit. Again, I can't see green properly, so I'm not the best judge of it haha.

Looks more yellow than green. I wonder if you could doubleup the laminx?

Lamin-x had a deal going where they would ship for free if you bought two kits, so I did order a second set. I plan on installing it once this first set fully cures in the next week or so.

Bought an 08 Passat wagon last night for $400 off craigslist. Pretty clean overall, needs front fenders (rust), valves/belt, cam, HPFP and 1-2 shift solenoid. Kbb is just under 5k running

First glance I thought the wheels were VW Goals and I was about to drive up to Indiana...

They are 17s, and there is a V6 Touareg at the local yard, so it’s getting 17Z Brembos soon

I remember when I was x number of posts away from something and you started to change my stats. You have all the power.

Also, that wagon needs to be built into a rally car.

I was planning on flipping it but hannah wants me to keep it and get rid of the golf since I complain about it so much. I'm going through the whole engine and replacing or improving alllllll of the common failures (balance shafts, cam chain tensioner, PCV, DV, thermostat, filter housing gasket, HPFP cover gasket). Head will be completely rebuilt and de-carboned so as long as I dont have a cam follower failure in the near future, it should be pretty bullet proof

Think it could be fun with a big turbo? I already have a manual trans I can swap in, FSI turbo parts are only getting cheaper
