Seriously... after my first year of driving from DC to richmond to charlotte, I needed a cool-off year for mileage on this car, haha.

I started the year around 16k... at 17k now, which is almost right at 12k a year pace again. Wheew... I want to keep this car for a long time.

Small functional mod:

Added the homelink auto-dimming with Compass rearview mirror to the car yesterday.

Setting up the homelink was easy, but the fun part was calibrating the Compass.

For that, you have to drive in a circle at 5 mph for the calibration. My neighbor asked me if I had a nice drive after doing just that around the block.

Frameless? so good looking!

Same calibration procedure in my crappy F150 and it still calibrates like 45 degrees off, lol

Thank you! It’s huge in comparison to the original haha

Oh man, I’ll have to check the accuracy next! Wheew. Confirmed it’s accurate.

Not too many updates to report here.

Second oil change is due because it's been a year since the last one. less than 2000 miles on this change but it's covered under the maintenance plan.

Going to order some PS4 tires for the car and hope that February doesn't get too cold here (most likely we will still be WFH anyway).

Getting alignment checked at the dealer too. Looking forward to their expressions at the front negative camber values will be priceless.

Only change i've made recently was to go back to stock on the DSG paddles. Grew tired of the metal bits... didn't really match any surface in the interior.

Remaining mod/repair list:
-Euro taillights (christmas)
-Akrapovic exhaust
-Drivers side headlight

Trip planned to Little Switzerland in the mountains of NC mid-november. Will be driving the R with my buddy Ryan who will be piloting his new GT350. Hopefully he doesn't lose me too bad

Thanks dude! Things have slowed down a lot lately, car has been sitting while i buy vacations for the anniversary and the holidays.

This friday, it'll get the dealership treatment. I may grab those taillights before christmas

Other than that, the build is nearly done.
