Thanks for the kind words. I get a lot of complements on the tail lights and I'm very happy with both the look and the functionality of them...VERY BRIGHT!!

You've got a great TDI. :bigthumb:

And, yes, the tails look great. How are they, btw? No fit problems like previous generations of aftermarket tail lights, I guess? I'm on the verge of getting a set for my TDI, see... :D

Soot's looking good Dave...and I'll finally get to hear him on the Bear Mtn run. :) You'll have to let me drive him though...and bring your VAGCOM! :) I still need to code my cluster a bit.

Fit is perfect, just as factory! I've gotten a lot of complements on them and I've only ever seen them on 2 other NB/NBC's!

Justin, do you have a boost gauge in your car? If so, what kind of boost pressures are you seeing at full-throttle? I'm still seeing 23psi even with a Boostvalve installed and I can't figure out why!

Don't worry, VAG-COM will tag along this time ;)

RC2. :) Was seeing 19 steady, 23 on a spike. Something tells me your car likes boost (or Jeff messed up your chip). Go see him and tell him what's up. He's real good about that, and I need to get my ECU to him so I can have him do up stage 4 with the 3bar MAP. :)

Where can I get me some of those taillights? Most excellent!

I am not a fan of Altezzas, but those LEDs are beautiful! I was debating between red/clear, or LEDs. The latter will win! Now, if only I can get brave enough, seeing as I am the Queen of Stock! :queen:

I love your TDI. Not only a gorgeous, fun car, but it gets 45+/- mpgs! :party: The best of all worlds! :bigthumb:

I got mine on eBay for around $200. I know that TVA carries them, but they're kind of expensive at $289. Here's an eBay auction for a set for $269. I know for a fact that I paid just over $200 for them over a year ago, perhaps there's more demand now. They're made by In Pro.

This is what I'm seeing:



I know what you're thinking, why in the heck am I complaing! However, this can't be good for the tiny turbo on the TDI.
Ben Carr on tdiclub is pushing 22 easy on his. :) He's got injectors too. I say it can't be good in the long run, but for now, live it up. You have a mod-friendly dealer (lucky!!!), so I say roll with it. But definitely have Jeff figure it out. You should only be at 18psi, 20max.

I MIGHT have the BT on for Bear Mtn if the ALH manifold will fit my PD. The turbo came off my sister's 99...we'll see how it goes. :)

UPDATE #2:

I gave Soot a much-needed (two straight weeks of rain!) bath today and decided to snap some pics with the new Vogtland springs. Besides, I never got a good shot of him with the No-Drill spoiler...









Keep in mind, these pics were taken with the fuel tank all but empty. With a full tank the car sits perfectly. Whereas before, with the NB specific springs, the back end would sag noticeably until about 1/4 tank was left.

Hey Dave was great meeting you!

Your car is even more beautiful in person and those tails rock. :)

I'm trying hard not to decide I need them on the Princess.

However----the wing from lanspeed----can you hook me up to a link for buying one.

Christmas is coming and I'm making my list!

:cool:
