This is serious stuff, thinking also on the r32 calipers upgrade  but worried for the pedal feel as I don't want it too spongy. Let us know how it feels.

Regarding the DCC, thanks for sharing. Always learning! But I would go for just a better suspension just my opinion.

I was in holiday, so i decided to do some work on the car to keep it evolving.

I put the black GTI emblem on the steering wheel. If i knew, this thing would have been fitted long time ago. I thought it was hard to do it (remove the airbag).

Now the car is faster with the GTI emblem instead of the GTD one.  :signLOL:




I will change the multifuctions buttons later when i will be ready to remove the airbag.

I changed the old Kenwood head unit by a Discover Media PQ. Sadly, i bought the wrong harness and i couldn't use App-Connect.






The head unit is so smooth and fast compared to my old unit. The screen colours are very nice.
The quality sound is much more better with the DM PQ. I am starting to think about retrofit a Dynaudio MK6 sound system.

In order to match the Hi-line CECM, i bought a Hi-line convenience module 19 bytes.




What a nightmare to put back the glove box and the screw in the bottom of the center console.

I did the key adaptation and added the convenience menu to the cluster.

I think i will be in trouble with my ABS pump. I have a location issue with the GPS navigation.
