I'm really surprised about the weight. It's light for such a solid mod. And the logo is really nice and deep.

One thing I could nitpick about would be the securing of the screw. Because the switch is free to spin, you can't torque the screw on hard, but that could be a good thing too. I haven't used the mod enough to know if it will be a problem though.

A trick I've used in the past on mod screws that back themselves out is to add a small dab of conductive grease in the threading. It adds some resistance to the threading a bit like a weak thread lock plus it keeps oxidation from affecting conductivity. Although I haven't seen the VW switch in person so I don't know if this advice would be of any use.

That's a good idea, it's brass.

The nice detail about the screw is that the slot is only milled where needed so it prevents the possibility of it gripping, but that's also very unlikely as you aren't pressing the button in like a SMPL to undo the switch. Taking off the switch you're gripping the outer housing which makes it easier than a SMPL button.
