I've got a lot planned for the next few months.

New wheels, brakes, and coilovers are the highlights.

I'm going to be doing autocross and some driver development courses this year so I'm looking into tow hooks, fire extinguisher mounts, and kill switches.

I have some small mods planned too. I've had a Forge DV and a hatch pop kit sitting around all winter, and I'm doing something interesting with my rear wiper.

And hopefully some more carbon.

I love the carbon center console. I've always wanted to get it but never pulled the trigger. I'm glad I get to see it actually in a car. You may have changed my mind about getting it!

It's pretty expensive but I've never regretted it, the best part is when you get in the car at night and you see the little red lights above the shifter refllecting off it. Everyone that gets in my car says it looks awesome and whenever I look at the picture I took before I swapped the parts I can't believe how much better it looks.

If you do buy it don't order it through OSIR Design USA though, use Parts4Euro or another website. I went through an ordeal where they accidentally put my order on hold and wouldn't answer the phone. I actually emailed the CEO and he personally found out what was going on but I got it a month later than I was supposed to.

I had a pretty productive "first weekend" of the year.

I spent the past week juggling cars with my parents because my cam follower failed. I talked to VW Canada and three dealerships (including one that a coworker has sway with) and they refused to do anything about it. With the weather improving I wasn't about to waste any of it so I had my mechanic order the parts. Seven hours and $2000 later my car was fixed on Thursday. Interestingly, they found that the oil change I had done at my dealership two weeks earlier doesn't seem to have been done, and the new cam follower another dealership put in when mine failed wasn't actually done either. I'm working with my mechanic to have that dealt with but in the meantime it's full steam ahead with my plans for the year.

My new wheels should be here in the last week of April or first week of May.

Yesterday I registered for a season of autocross and signed up for an autoslalom driving course. The first autocross event isn't until May 25th but the driving course is on April 12th so I'm going to have the brake fluid and coolant replaced this week.

Today I took my winter tires off and washed them. The plan is to get a beater after the summer so they'll never be going back on. For now I'm on the all seasons my car came with, once I get my wheels I'll be mounting summers and the all seasons will go the way of the winters.

The first half of my detailing supplies for the year were delivered this week. I've been using AMMO exclusively since I got my car but this will be the first time I use Jewelers Polish, Leveling Fluid, or Citrus AP Cleaner.

I swapped my dome lights and vanity mirror lights back to stock, they were LEDs but I prefer stock honestly. Don't really want such bright lighting inside the car.

After that I gave it a wash, cleaned up the salt marks on some of the interior trim with some Meguiar's wipes, and vacuumed. Took me a solid 20-30 minutes to clean my pedals, they were so nasty, but AMMO AP cleaner worked really well. There are a lot of iron deposits on the paint but I need to wait for my order from Detailers Domain to come in before I can do anything about them.

Another busy weekend.

I had my coolant and brake fluid replaced on Friday.

On Saturday I spent the day burning rubber at the Ian Law Advanced Autoslalom School. It was an 8 hour course that was half classroom time and half driving. The focus was on the racing line and weight transfer in the class, and outside they put us on a skidpad, slalom, a large 180 bend, and then a full autocross course.



I started off slow. I don't drive fast on the street and I rarely touch the brakes so it was a real adjustment for me to get in the racing state of mind where you bury the throttle out of the corners and brake hard going in. By the time we got to the full course though I managed to ditch my road driving attitude. Another adjustment was to get close to the cones on the passenger side, I went from being two feet away to inches throughout the day.

Aside from that I was told I'm very smooth with my steering inputs and that I know my car well based on how I feather the throttle to manage understeer.

It was a ton of fun and a great learning experience. I learned a lot that'll help me with autocross this year. Being able to find my cars limits with professionals to offer advice definitely took me pretty far up the learning curve too, I could easily have wasted a whole year of autocross events and not gotten as far as I did yesterday.



I ran 45psi in all my tires yesterday, based on the chalk marks that I had on my tires at the start of the day I should be running more pressure. Next time out I'm going to try 47psi all around. I bought a little journalist notebook today to keep track of tires pressures and eventually suspension settings when I'm autocrossing or at a track day.

I also picked up a package at the post office today. I still need to order a few items before I can do a paint correction but I have the clay bars I need and a bottle of Auto Finesse Iron Out to get rid of the rusted iron deposits my car is covered in.

I think it was yes. It's a very stealthy part, if you didn't know to look for it you'd think the car came with it. I didn't want to install gauge pods and ruin the OEM look of the interior, or attract any attention from other drivers or the police, so it does that really well.

I really like the amount of information it displays also. I use the coolant temperature readout all the time in the winter (I don't start driving until it reaches positive temperatures and I don't turn on the heat until it's at least 50 degrees) and when I'm auto crossing.

The 0-60 timer is fun at a drag strip or a deserted road. You can use the intake air temperature readout to test out air intakes. The whole display flashes when you reach an engine speed you set in the menus, it's pretty aggressive so you see it in the corner of your vision. It displays exhaust gas temperature, throttle position, and ignition timing also but I haven't used them so far aside from a quick test.

The website says the speed readout is uncorrected and more accurate than the speedometer but I get the exact same reading, although according to GPS my speedometer is bang on anyway.

There's a boost mode also but I've heard it isn't completely accurate, it has three connections for analog gauge taps so you can hook it up to the wires for proper gauges. I'm planning to hook up an oil pressure gauge soon.

AMMO is great. The very first Drive Clean episode aired the week I bought my car, I actually posted in the YouTube comments asking if he would ship to Canada and Larry replied. We emailed each other and he actually paid for the shipping on my first order, aside from a handful of winter washes when my car was more brown than white I've never used anything but AMMO products on my car.

What I like about AMMO Foam is that it's really gentle, I don't have to apply any pressure at all when I wash my car, everything just glides off. AMMO Skin is the best wax I've used, it's like a layer of glass when it sets, and it lasts a long time because it's synthetic. My favourite is AMMO Mud, it adds a lot of depth to the tires without making them shiny but it also works great on the exterior plastics.

I've emailed Larry personally a couple dozen times and he always responds, I owe everything I know about detailing to him. His products are expensive but I think they're worth every penny. If you want to try them just buy a bottle of Foam and Hydrate and use them to wash your car, if you like them try another product.

Personally I don't use anything but AMMO products on my car, the picture below says it better than I ever could. I don't like cars covered in stickers but this is what you'll see on each of my back windows, likely the only stickers you'll ever see on my car.

Thanks for the reply , I've always been big on a clean interior , especially clean leather. Nothing is more comfortable than soft supple leather. I guess you testimony is good enough..i personally don't own any equipment to wash my car my self put side of hand wash places where you pay 1$ for a few minutes of water and another for the foam but the ammo products look good..aside from the interior i wanted to use their wax , I've been thinking lately since my car is also cw and is shiny as is ,what the point is for waxing but seeing your pics your paints as reflective as glass

Got rid of the GTI and 2.0 FSI badges today. Wasn't much left over from the 2.0 FSI badge but the paint around the GTI badge is pretty rough, going to polish the whole hatch tomorrow.

I'm almost done with my cars rear end, just needs some work on the spoiler and valance to be 100%.

Nice interior! Where'd you get the red armrest stitching? Did you have an upholsterer do it?

I didn't think the ED30 had those.

Thanks.

I had it upholstered last summer. The shop I went to didn't do a very good job though, and I've changed my mind on the colour scheme I want to go with inside, so I'm going to have it redone at another shop I found along with the shifter, handbrake, and eventually other parts.

Four months and 22 days in the making, I HAVE MY WHEELS!!!!!!!!!!!



Ordered on December 30, 2013. Volk Racing TE37 Tokyo Time Attack. 18 x 8.5, et45, 5x112. Speced to clear a StopTech 6-piston BBK.

Kics Dual Phase System wheel bolts. They have a key to screw in the bolt and another 3-pin key to screw in a lock cap. Enough for all 20 bolts on the car.



And of course Volk Racing GT Center Caps. Stock was low so I only have two right now but the other two will be here in a week of two. Wheels aren't going on for at least a month though so no big deal.



Unboxing . . .
