Thanks everyone. So far, my wife and I are in love with it. Having our fun with it now and I'm sure things will settle soon. Haha. I already have plans and will start work on the engine bay today. Also, all the windows, including the windshield, are tinted. I have to take the tint of the front today. Won't pass inspection and more importantly, when the inspection stickers get scraped off, so will the tint.

For those of you that aren't familiar with my GLI, here it is:







Looking at the same styling for the .:R.

I feel you on the heat. Car is looking good so far.

We had dinner out on the deck tonight and it was bad enough just sitting there.

The waitress walked up to us and said, "You are our first customers to use the deck in three days."

We went to sit on the chairs, which didn't have cushions, and I sat my tail bone like right on the metal. :laugh:

Of course after dinner, we sticker bombed the fairing and did the fender screw mod out in the heat.
