    Got some new MY11 rear lights off NHN, reallys sets the rear off now.

    Cars not been properly cleaned in ages, so gave it a quick going over but really needs a deep clean when i can.

    Nigel- This is how it was packed on arrival.










    so, these are the other lights i had, which are MY09 look a like ones.





    These are also up for sale in sale section. anyone interested Pm me.












    Oh and the exhaust did get a good polish after all this they had loads of surface rust!! dam salt.

    Would like the thank Nigel (NHN) for such a smooth transaction,Pm him for parts, he can probably supply what you want.

    Thats it for now, got some more stuff come through post, will update when get them done. Any questions just ask.

    Cheers mate, i think there great love the look of them on silver. yeah i know it needs one really, just waiting for one to pop up though! never find them cheap and i dont know of any scrappers local that do audis. yeah ive got some small things to put on soon but problem with audis is modding is so expensive, wanted a full oem satnav unit but thats 800 all in, full leather interior is expensive too, also wanted s3 brakes but the list can go on and on.

    I might go down to telford for UD and poss ed38 and prob end up at some other but duno yet mate

    Got some brakes but found out i need hubs off a 2.0tdi which is pooop! Shame as a love the look of them.

    But all that is up in the air as unsure anyway as don't even know what type I would need, as am sure I wold have to get ones that match up for the drive linkages and fit the strut size.



    There huge ! 345mm i think.

    I think you need S3 hubs mate, I have a set of S3 brakes I am fitting to my 2.0TDi so will have old TDi hubs, but I'm pretty sure you need S3 hubs as well

    Found the thread warren, yes seems 2.0TDi hubs are just fine, so I'll have a set of S3 hubs up for sale as not worth taking off old ones then.

    Is your car not a 2.0 then Ash?

    Pm you price soon, well i put the 5mm on the back two bolts bolted up fine, then i felt the other two defo rounding the threads!, i stopped before i did to much damage, am doing it correct as messed with wheels for years, you could tell there wasn't a huge amount of thread holding them in too. am not saying your wrong bro just if i could put them on without longer bolts i would! let us know what you think

    Did you spray over the chrome on your grill?
