V-Maxx currently does not make Mk3 coilovers. The set that they have listed for the Mk3 are designed for the Mk2. They will fit with modification, but you have no adjustability. Here is the V-Maxx thread- V-Maxx Coils- Install and Thoughts

There are no aftermarket bulbs in my gauges, just new faces.

I seem to remember saying something about the V-Maxx coilovers not being a worthy investment a while back and certain people took offense to what I said.

Looks like I was right after all.

So in three months I really haven't done anything to the car. I swapped in my Steeda intake for the winter and swapped in my 5-spokes for the winter. Meh.

A lot of people have asked for a video of my exhaust and I've never been able to produce one of any decent quality. But today I got a text from Aric at Injected to test out a new tune that he's working on and the video that I took turned out well enough that I asked to share it with you all. This will give you somewhat of an idea of what my exhaust sounds like along with some of the additional stuff going on with Injected as well.

A few members got to hear my car at FocusFest13 and knew I had a special tune. Well, here's the first videos of the cam tune. Don't bother listening to it if you don't either have a really good computer-speaker setup or a headset as it is of broken cell-phone quality, but it's the best I have currently. One is long and less-crappy, while the other is shorter but more-crappy. Hope you like them nonetheless!

It sounds pretty mean in person. I need a better way to record it though.
