this like the Dan J Reed of the MkV forum?

He's got a long way to get to that status.

Probably sell the car lol.
A lot of people are like that. They get a car exactly like they want it, then get bored and sell if shortly after.
His balls must get in the way a lot...............

It is more likely I run out of money than things to DIY
. The list is endless and if I ever indeed run out, I can sell the car and get another one
.
But seriously, I would not even touch my car, if I could order all the options I want from factory...

That's right. I saw Dan's DIY page. It is awesome.
I finally enabled the headlight washers w/vag-com tonight and bled the system according to Bentley description. Last thing to do is to paint the bumper covers...

Sometimes I think you bought the stripped out Jetta on purpose.

How much were all the parts and how long did it take? It doesn't look too difficult, just time consuming?
I either have to add the washers and have those ugly ass 2piece bumper strips or remove the HIDs. Stupid Germans.

Yea he's right up there as a "vortex god" I suppose
but he has had a lot more years to get to that point since the mk3 came out in 93, so you've got plenty of time to catch up http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Keep it up, threads like yours are what make this forum great http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I got the whole set here for $150 or so. It is not difficult.
Drilling a hole in the fluid tank is a bit of pita. I took the picture of the drill/mill bit 3/4" I used. I also used flex extension between the bit and the driller. You have to use small drill first to make a driver hole.
You also have to push through the firewall one wire. I had the airbox off, so I did it on the passenger side, but you will be better off with the driver side.
And that's pretty much it.

Hey, it wasn't Germans who decided no washers with HIDs in MY07+

Glad to see my headlight washers alive once again!

Yeah, how long did it take me to install them after I had got them from you? A year? I am so slow
