They have the best fit and finish on the market for the R's.

Stupid question, maybe, but I'm a newbie. Are these hard to install? I've heard that every R is worth an extra 2 horsepower so sounds like a good bang for the buck... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

EASY! Just unscrew the OEM pins (counter clockwise) they will lift right up. Then repeat in the opposite direction for install. Rick

Re: Another choice for door lock pins with R logo from ipd (Scott Hart)

Just a few questions:<p>What would you do if you had to get a coat hanger to try to un-lock your door, if your keys got locked in? You will never be able to loop anything around it, cause it so slippery. <p>Speaking of slippery, in an emergency, knock on wood, would it be hard to pull up in emergency situations, especially if the power went out:<p> I.E.: Your car goes into the water sub-merged and you need to get out, and you can not pull up on the door pins cause the door pins are flushed to the door trim and the electrical system goes out. And your fingers are wet and slippery, how would u grab on to the door pins.<p>It looks cool and everything, but I am just thinking ahead in case of emergencies. For me, the OEM door pins are just fine with me, look ugly but very practical. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>

Easy, leave the rear doorpins half-way screwed in so that you may yank them right up. <p>Also, as I have recommended before.... go to <A HREF="http://www.galls.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.galls.com</A> and purchase a window punch (super cheap)<p>For those wondering about the doorlocks, these arent from IPD but it gives you an idea....<p><IMG SRC="http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j267/GhawiJ/doorpin1.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j267/GhawiJ/doorpin2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>I think I have more pics here<br><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=59662" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=59662</A>

Re: Another choice for door lock pins with R logo from ipd (bouncer)

PLEASE tell me you guys DO realize that your locks pop up when the inside release handle is pulled <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> . There is no way to lock yourself INSIDE your car (insert polish joke here), submerged or not. For the record, that feature is mechanical, not electric.<p>BTW, if you lock yourself out of your car, a real professional tow truck driver will use a slim-jim slipped between your window and lower seal. Only a rank amateur would resort to trying to "hook" your door lock pin (while really jacking up your upper window seal in the process).<p>Perfectly safe. Order away <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> .

Q.) did you hear about the drummer that locked himself in the band's dodge caravan?<p>A.) It took the musicians 4 hours to get him out!
