    New ears and bigger brakes & upgrades

    After 4 long hours of cleaning and clay-baring and polishing and waxing, I decided to put on my new ears (chrome mirrors) and the 312mm brakes. Im soo chuffed with the car now she is really getting there. What do you all think??

    wnjukNice! Wish my was that clean. How are you getting on with the bigger brakes? I'll be upgrading mine to 312mm in the next couple of weeks.

    To be honest they were only put on last night and ive only driven 40ish miles so a bit early to tell. Im sure they will be no worse though! The only reason I got bigger ones is to fill the gap in my wheels!! My old ones looked like tea plates Lol

    More goodies

    Sold some bits on the bay to pay for these pretty bits.



    And yes i know it needs an exhaust, hoping to fit an S3 one on there before GTi

    The only thing we are not sure of is the colour match on the skirts, as form some angles its perfect and from other a different shade all together, god damned mica/pearl paints,lol
