    Not enough! She's sat in the car port covered in cr4p and desperately needing a wash & wax. Still, fitted my winter wheels & 4 brand spanking new Dunlop Winter Sport 4D tyres this weekend, so that's a plus. Just not getting any time when it's actually light and dry to clean her at the moment. All my time seems to be taken up going to kids' parties (with my kids!) recently. Also realised I haven't even looked on AS.net for months! Still love the car though.

    A man's gotta love a good old kids party. Lol
    But at least you got some decent shoes fitted for the winter days.
    I've got loads to do but like you find it hard to find time. 2weeks off at Xmas should do me the trick ;-)

    Been a busy one for me! fitting a vent boost pod/gauge it's a crappy gauge but i got it from a ebay auction for a tenner, it will do as a placeholder until i get a good one. Then today i fitted my catch can, the elbow coming off the oil filter housing was a right "%^£%£! didn't want to go back in at all, still not sure if it's on properly now. I also murdered the existing pipework so had to order some 1/2" fuel line for the brake booster.

    I finally got round to fitting new ballasts, Phillips xenon bulbs, LED sidelights and got my fog lights working again

    All in all it was a very productive Sunday and I can't wait for it to get pitch black again this evening

    (Special thanks to Trups for helping me out and providing guidance with the fitting, as this was the first time I'd ever taken my bumper of myself in 5 years and never tackled the headlight units! lol)

    I took her for a drive yesterday, and I purchased a set of cheap Avus rims to use winter wheels.

    Just purchased these....

    Check out this item I found on eBay: http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=120841859554

    A bargain price.... So now I need to change rocker cover gasket, these plugs, then fit my B5 V2.2 Tip, Jetex Filter/heatsheild. Change a few pipes then do the N249 delete.
    And I might aswell do a oil change aswell.
    That's my Christmas love to her.... 2weeks Xmas hols so plenty of days to do it.

    Mine has just had a fresh new rocker cover gasket too as it was leaking like a b*tch.
    I have also replaced the front Bose speaker because it was blown/damaged, repaired the rear wiper washer jet because it has seized, fitted some new Xenon headlight bulbs and some LED sidelights to match. She's also got a brand new battery.

    Today's job - to repair the left micro-switch boot release and to re-attach my lower catalytic converter protective plate/shield.

    And then she'll be perfect! Nothing else to do :-D

    I bought a new heater motor for mine, and went to fit it last night.

    Stripped out the glove box, only to find that the new motor had a different plug.

    On investigation though, it was the wiring connection that had failled on the old one. A few new crimps, and it's all fixed and working perfectly.

    Finally I might be able to dry the car out and start using it again!

    New tyres - 2x ContiSport Contact 5 (Saturday)
    Spacers (bought)
    Cambelt, Aux and waterpump from the TTShop (Saturday week)
    Brembo GT Juniors, DS2500s, braided hoses and dimpled disks (bought)
    N249 delete vac hose (bought)
    Oilpickup, new filter and new oil (done a weekend ago)

    Decided the thing is just a good allrounder. Quattro in the wet, launches in the dry, spacious for Xmas trees, shopping etc, powerful enough to see of most 3l whatevers!

    You would be looking around £1500-£2k depending on what paint you choose. Daytona grey has a pearl effect and the paint was £300 by itself plus lacquer and labour
