    When i was at my mates garage i thought i would get the car plugged into the snap on diagnostic machine and have the air bag light turned off which went all well then i asked him to run a engine management test which came up with something he had never seen in the 10 years he worked there lol.

    Thought i would lower the rear end aswell as i been meaning to do it for ages so thought now would be the perfect opportunity. We set the rear as low as it would go on the rear adjustable collars.

    Can just see the nice new Poly Bump Stops

    Haha, I had a good laugh when I had the same error code on my old A3.

    first time I have read your build thread, love the car mate, something different looks wise.

    shame about the bump, good to see its being fixed!

    Finally got round to having a bit of bodywork done and a full spray job/blow over in the same color (cactus green) from a good mate of mine for about £700 all in. First we started with removing the front bumper , door trims , roof rubbers and moldings , headlights , rear lights , wing mirrors , bonnet and the rear aerial.

    Front Bumper Removed :

    The car was then left in the spray booth overnight to allow time for the paint to dry. My friend then returned the next day to remove all the masking tape put the car back together and then polish it i do not have any photos of these steps. By the time i had returned to his work the car was basically all polished and put back together.

    Car all sprayed up , polished and put back together :

    Cheers mate yeah it does definately breathe life back into the car it looks like a new car again and the bonnet was just a quick fix for now i do eventually want to get a new one painted and put on with some sort of vents in as the car bonnet gets so hot from the manifold.

    Cheers prawn yeah getting on with the work now mate nothing like what you have done to yours lol but getting there stating to looking a bit cleaner. Need to get back up to R tech after Christmas and see if they can get any more power out of it as it was blowing from the manifold when i first had it mapped. And cheers jay i think it looks a bit more aggressive now was a bit gutted when i crashed it and smashed the £300 Oettinger bumper up but i think this bumper has grown on me think i prefer it to the oettinger one now

    I quite like the way it sounds.

    Is that the same exhaust I linked you to Chester? just with the different tailpipe? Amazed at how different it sounds to mine!

    Got round to buying some new rims for the Audi last week some 18" Black TT Wheels only really bought them for the tyres as i have been running the car on budgets since ive had it lol. The wheels come with 2 good continental compact 2 tyres with about 4.5mm - 5mm tread , 1 pirelli p zero rosso with about 5mm - 5.5mm tread and 1 continental compact 3 tyre with about 3mm - 3.5mm tread on so i will be changing the continental compact 3 tyre soon for another pirelli p zero rosso tyre so i will have all the same tread patterns on each axle with some half decent tread so i might actually get a bit more grip into the corners and whilst pulling away .

    Can you remember how far off the outlet of the Relentless Downpipe was to mate with exhaust on a non Ko4'd original MK4 car?
    Does it need and adapter pipe welding up or is it pretty close and they mate up.

    Just wondering if I'm gonna need to dig the welding gear out.
