I dig it. It's not over the top but looks clean and sophisticated.

What do you think of the Hella rear lights? Was installation difficult?

Installation was really easy. Just fold back the carpeting near the tail lights, and then unplug and unfasten the lights. (4x nuts)

Don't let the nuts drop into the body and it's a simple 20 minute job

Installed Hotchkis rear swaybar

Finally installed the 27mm Hotchkis rear bar yesterday to go with my 26mm H&R front. The front end of the car feels much lighter. I don't know if I like it just yet.

Currently have it set to medium stiffness at the rear (+135% stiffer than stock)

VWR Intake as of today: 9/14/2013



Found a small leak at the MAF. I reinstalled it more tightly and played around with the washers. Fitment is better now.

My Hotchkis 27mm RSB is for sale if anyone is interested.

AWE downpipe installed (10/18/2013). Sounds amazing and the extra power is very noticeable but quite loud with my engine mounts!

Initially wanted to clean my intake valves and put everything back to normal, but don't want to remove that intake manifold again anytime soon...

Intake Manifold fully removed out of the car. 3 out of 4 injectors came out with the manifold!


Rebuilding my K04 and putting it in while the car is down....hopefully completed sometime next month.

Busted K04
