I followed millertime's lead and did the same mod. This mod paid for itself a couple of weeks later when, in drizzly weather, some idiot swerved in front of me and stepped on the brakes. Visions of my TTs back bumper kissing my TVs front bumper swirled thru my head, instead, I made a nice, smooth, straight stop. Highly recommend this mod.
