sorry, what do you mean?

also, what does everyone use to wash/clean their HA wheels? washed the car yesterday, used some wheel washing stuff, but they still look kind of grey and not black like they were. thanks.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

New here and trying to do either brake cover or just paint them. Also looking for LED/HID headlights with the custom harness, but no luck finding them.

There is a member selling complete HID/LEDs with the harness and another selling the Eagle Eye LED strip headlights. Check the classified section.

I mean that the same tow hooks have been in use since MY11. The front fascia of the Summit and HA, however, do not have the openings for tow hooks to poke through, so the front end has to be modified if you want to put tow hooks on a Summit or HA.

^^^ Looks great!! I wanted to do that with my HA, but not sure how the other trivalent chrome would look.

I've heard a rumor that there may be an alternative part available with "knock-outs", but folks with Summits (and theoretically HA since it uses the same fascia as Summit) have had to physically cut their own openings for the tow hooks historically. There are threads about that...
