We hate to say it, but it took us almost 8 months to gets some goodies for our Golf Sportwagen TDI. And we can't lie that it felt good getting parts even though it was not much. We went ahead and ordered what we feel are the essentials when getting a new car. So we went to our good friends over at UroTuning and they got us all we needed!
First, we got a European headlight switch. As we all know, a must for all our cars. The awesome benefit is being able to run the fog lights ON in the parking light position. It also has the rear fog light position (must have European spec tail-lights). You also have the option to purchase the sensor to add the auto light function. Our Golf Sportwagen already came with the auto light function, so we had no need for it, still a great feature for those whom don't have it.
Next, we had to do something with the stock, boring black pedals set. UroTuning has an awesome set of GTI style pedals with a matching dead petal. It's a great match to the interior's brush metal trim.
And finally, we finished with a set of blind spot split mirrors (blue tinted and heated) and I must say out of everything we got, this was our favorite. Being able to see a car on your normal blind spots is a big plus. No more double guessing.
Overall we are simply happy with our first little modifications. We feel, when getting a new car, these are the first modification us VW heads must add to their new car before anything else. We want to thank our friends over at UroTuning for the care package. Make sure to check them out for all your Uro needs, they will guarantee the lowest prices!
