Another Sucessful Weekend.

The projects completed this past weekend..
-Cupra R Lip installed
-Finished up the missing taillight tint piece
-Half-corrected my messed up auto-leveling headlights
-Avic D3 installed.

Cupra R Lip
Not too hard to install... Some dremeling and and an extra set of hands or 2 helps.

I picked it up from AbbottAutomotive!
You can pick one up here: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3848067

At my previous ride height i barely ever scraped...
Not a scrape:

2 Minor scrapes from dumb mistakes.


So that means it can go lower!!









Taillight Tint...
No pics of that, but when I was first installing my taillight tint, i messed up on my passenger side tint...
So i installed the rest and ordered another overlay... and i finally got it installed this weekend.


Auto-Leveling Headlights
Since I dropped the front like 1+" more, it really messed up my headlights... they pretty much pointed straight at the ground, and I could only see 10 feet in front of me...
I had to turn my high beams on to drive at night.
So i shortened the bar like half an inch... which helped, but it still points a little low, so I'm probably going to have to cut off another quarter of an inch..


Finally....
Avic D3!
I got it installed on Friday at JP Autosounds in Santa Ana...
Pretty good shop... I liked it...
He couldnt get the PAC steering wheel controllers to work, so I'm going to go in later this week to get it done, hopefully.

I paired it with my 15GB 3rd Gen iPod...
The OLDD ass one w/ the orange buttons, since thats all I have right now.
It works fine, since the only problem w/ it is battery life, and the AVIC Charges it, so no problems here!

Nice work with the Pioneer D3! I'm thinking about putting an AVIC-F900BT in my A3. It the latest navigationsystem from Pioneer.

You first had a single DIN, right? Is it a lot of work to convert to double DIN? How mutch did all the parts cost?

Love your A3, by the way!

The double din conversion isnt too hard.... its just time consuming.
You just need to take your time and be careful
