Picked up an APR intake and ordered Neuspeed 19x9 Rse10's and a Neuspeed Power Module. Now if only the car weren't 2 months away!

I haven't had a chance to try it out as she's parked for the season but I installed my P3 VIDI gauge. So clean looking.

Love the way those neuspeed rse10s look on you car. I also have a white R. Just curious as to why you went with the 19X9s over the 19X8s. From your pictures it seems like the stocker tires are stretched a bit on your 9inch wheels.
I called 3 dealers before ordering and all of them recommended 9's. The 8" setup would sit exactly the same as the stock wheel so you'd end up running spacers. Seems backwards. In all honesty I think an 8.5 would be the perfect solution but almost everyone who sees the car comments on how perfect the fit is.

Finally. Sourced the correct console liner out of the UK. My car came without any liner.

Do you have the part numbers for warning triangle and console liner?

Thanks!

Warning triangle no... sorry... I've had it for close to 10 years... fit in my Audi A3 and then used it in my Mk6 R. Liner yes... 5G0 863 328 L 82V.

nice build!

curious about your install of the glovebox led...tried mine last night and when i popped the lamp bulkhead out there was no additional wire to be able unplug the wire harness...was your the same?
Did it the day I picked up the car which was a while ago now. I know I didn't have an issue. I must have had some slack.

Love the Rse10's! Can't wait to spot more R's around Edmonton, Where did you order them from?? Also may I ask how/where you did the VCDS tweaks I'm looking to make a few changes but not committed to the expensive equipment :( as of right now..
The wheels came direct from Neuspeed. Ordered before the dollar completely tanked. I've thought about selling them. I really wanted OZs and sometimes I still want to swap. As for the VCDS, a friend has a cable but I know there are a few guys locally that don't mind helping. Send me a pm and I'll see if I can help.

Wow. 034 mount installed. Everything feels so much better and I've noticed no additional vibrations. Not in reverse. No where.
