    I just got this from ECS, and had it painted at my body shop, it is still new and in the box, just painted Blue Anthracite. It could be repainted of course, but would be a great deal for someone with a wagon that is blue anthracite. This will fit all wagons, B5 or B5.5. Its too cold out, so...

  14. Wax On, Wax Off
    I was just wondering if any of you who have painted your calipers put anything over the paint to maintain the color. Is it worth the effort to add some poly wax or is this a waste since the heat generated will "burn" any coating off?
