When swapping the High-line CECM and CCCM did you need to do VAGCOM re-coding afterwards? I'm looking into getting a GTI sw and cluster for my Rabbit. I want to get all the info I need before hand not to end up in a jam.

TIA

Yes, you need to recode the modules back to you're original coding of the Low/mid line modules.

I like the look. imo I think the rear needs to be raised or the front needs to be lowered. I just not a fan of reverse rake
Once my frame gets notched I plan on bring the front down a bit. I still have about 1/3 threads left up there! :beer:
