Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

That looks excellent!

Couple questions. Did you do the install yourself and how much did it cost to get them painted?

Re: remote start safety feature?

I wish the remote start had some sort of indicator on the remote. Never quite sure if the 2 clicks registered with the vehicle or not.

Re: Any experiences with Console Vaults?

Finished installing the gunvault. That was much easier than I anticipated. Although those two little screws in the front were a pain in the ass. I ended up only getting one of the front two installed.
