Accessport is a great first part because it sets you up to get an intake or exhaust parts and take use of the power potential.
If you want a price let me know.
Welcome and congrats on the new ride!
Great color choice as well

Welcome aboard. A Stage 1 tune can be done with an AP or with a tuner, and it makes a nice improvement without any mechanical changes. A good place to start. Have fun ...

Thank you, CS Type 1 Lip on order, HT Auto side skirts on order, and looking at APs now.
Debadge with some floss took about 15 minutes. I let it sit in the sun for the morning, and the letters came off easy with the floss. Just rubbed my thumb and fingers across the residual glue and pulled it off. Then I used a bug/tar remover and a quick soap and water wash to make the rear end shiny (picture taken before wash).
Total time for debadge was 30-35 minutes start to finish.
Oh yes, I love the taillight tint. Almost got them done last week when I had my windows done, but the shop wanted 100 for the pair... Thought it was a bit steep, so I thought I may try my own hand first, just dont know yet.
The car looks so much hotter with the tails done! Do you like the roof rack?

I have a dgm hatch as well and want to tint my tails, how dark is that tint N8INCHATT?
My tint guy said the tails were a bitch to do. Apparently there are many curves on the tails which make it tough. Can't remember what I paid to get my tails done as I did my windows at the same time.
