Audi TT pedal covers & dead pedal

*      PG Performance

The accelerator pedal cover was easy enough, slipping right on. The brake was a *?%@! until a phone call to PG Performance informed me that the brake pedal actually had a stock cover—which of course had to be removed first. The dead pedal took a little effort, but was pretty straight-forward.


GTI Interior

*      One of the few interior shots I ever took of the GTI.

Klasse All-in-one and Sealant Glaze

*      It’s a lot easier to see the Klasse AIO/SG on the GTI Silverstone Grey than the R32 Reflex Silver
