Great looking car Deezler! I just did the muffler delete myself last week and wish I had done it sooner. I have the same problem with my significant other. When she drives the TDi she can get the mpg to dip into the 30s (which is still better than most other cars on the road). I like your stylish and functional approach to modding. I have my mirrors folded in for highway use but if you figure out a clean way to do a passenger side mirror delete, be sure to post pictures.
60 mpg hwy highest, 50+mpg lifetime
TDi=fast frugal fun
