Okay, a little bit 'cause it so hot here and a lot because I'm lazy, I've yet to roll my fenders and paint my calipers. Those two things I need to do so I can bring my car in for the dealer to install the coil-overs.

I'm going to California for a week (Bugorama VW Classic), when I get back the car will be priority number one to get this done.

So far everything about this "upgrade" has given me hell. Wheels didn't clear the brakes. Lost a tire on my first trip. Bolts for the struts were seized up. I'm just ready to get 'er done so I can enjoy the car again and I'm not even ready to take on the challenge of getting the Votex kit installed.

Where I live anything for an ATV, tractor or 4x4 Ford can be easily had and done but you tell them it's a European car and the answer is always no. It's easier to find someone to put shoes on a horse than it is to put brakes on a W8.

I have decided that I'll get the new Pioneer/Apple CarPlay for my Christmas present to myself in a few months.

$1,400

I wonder if it'll work with the VW Phatbox.

Will you still need the Phatbox at that point?

I'm not sure. I have yet to read that the radio has any kind of memory card or drive in it.

True, true and I want it to have a reverse camera too. I wonder how much it would cost to get that installed. I have done several stereo installs in the past but nothing this technical.
