I believe it's one like this: [URL]https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01KHEIXNE/[/URL]

I use one like this that I've attached to a ProClip dash mount under the vent to the left of the center display: [URL]https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0742DT8FV/[/URL]

Ordered and got a set of 20 inch take offs wheels and tires. The annoying part will be paying either to transfer the TPMS to the new wheels or the new tires to the current wheels with TPMS installed.

Do you have a part number on the VW dead pedal, and was there any modification to install?

Yes, thank you.
There are many models with similar design and dimension, but this one folds; and that is the key for it to fit without modification. The normal position is:


But for direct fit, it needs to be folded like so:


So that the base is in front of the charging pad instead of the bottom:

I was browsing online by visual match. Here is the sticker in the packaging of the dead pedal I used. Note it came with the blue plastic liner on the metal surface. I can't guarantee the accuracy of what's printed there. For all I know it could refer to a different part (as I didn't verify whether or not this is original OE part).


As far as modification, yes. I posted a thread below:

I know that many things on vehicles exist because manufacturers have to cater to the lowest common denominator. Most of them don't bother me (too much) but the air bag warning stickers that they put on the sun visors are an eye sore, especially in Canada where that have to put them in both official languages. With the R-Design charcoal interior, the large high-contrast white/yellow stickers are particularly annoying. Plus, all they basically say is don't let kids/babies sit in the front seat.

Anyway, it was an easy and cheap fix. I bought a roll of black vinyl from Walmart for $5, cut out the sizes I needed, and applied it on top of the warning stickers. It's easily removable and leaves no residue but it cuts down on the ugliness. They still look like stickers, but at least they are black stickers that are far less visually distracting. Actually, now I'm thinking that if I got some black Velcro fabric to stick there, it would cut down the shine and I could customize the visor look with some morale patches :D.

And here's the latest gratuitous pic of the XC90....

Dropped it off for paint correction, full front Xpel Ultimate, along with a pillars, b pillars, door cups and sideskirts. Then Nanolex Si3d HD nano coating. Also getting the front windows tinted as close as possible to match the factory tint.

If you're going for ceramic window tint.
Make sure you're aware of "low angle haze" effect so you won't get disappointed.

Funny you mention that. I dislike that haze effect on the ceramic tint on my Audi. I thought something was wrong with the tint until I researched it and asked the installer. Wish I would have looked into it beforehand. Either way, It's something you get used to, I guess. I'm not sure what I'm going with yet as the tint guy won't be out there until tomorrow afternoon. I saw they have carbon ceramic tints now, not sure if you still get the haze effect.

Welcome to the club
I fell for the same trap

I would go metallic or Hybrid
Solargard has an amazing lifetime warranty on those. I'll check the link for you if want

Edit.

It gives you a decent comparison of almost all what's out there.

Looks good. How strong is the adhesive backing? Is it more like post-it-note consistency, blue tape consistency, or a permanent sticker level?
