    LOL! That plate is temporary although is been on for so long now. Not thought about a shorter plate, maybe something for the future

    absolutely loving the car...but that final touch of blacking out completely the grill just tipped it over to make me now doubt it. At least leave the Audi rings in silver.
    Up to that point you've got everything contrasting very nicely black gloss and silver paint and the alloys (alloy=sort of chrome finish) was picking up with the chrome up front.
    Instead what about gloss black door handles ?

    LOL! I'll keep a look out for you guys too. Maybe we can meet up sometime? I didn't notice much difference with the 008 on as i'm still on the standard map but when i eventually get around to having a remap done then i'm sure it's money well spent.

    Thanks mate but it wasn't me with Tony and i didn't have a TT. I think i know who you mean though, think his name is Jay too.

    Everyone has there own opinion on what looks good and what doesn't. Im happy with the grill. I wanted that grill as soon as i saw it on ShaunS3's car.

    As for gloss black handles - I'll leave that mod for someone else to do.

    So today i decided to work on the rear lights. Were starting to look a bit dull and had been thinking for a while about adding a light tint.

    Used the 3M Restoration Kit, very easy to use


    Taped up around lights


    Drivers side before


    Drivers side after


    Passenger side before


    Passenger side after


    Before


    After


    Lights look much fresher, all the dullness and scraches gone. Will have to do the front headlights sometime to.

    On with the tint.

    One side done



    Both sides done


    Whilst at it i had some film left over so decided to tint the side indicators too

    Before


    After

    Very nice mate, you need to pop over to the Cov meet sometime, so we can see the car in the flesh.

    How does the car cope with speedbumps being that low mate? I'm looking to go lower, but I can't avoid speedbumps on my way to work!
