    So, question is, what's the first mod? I want to be subtle, maybe some LED fogs, interior lights?

    What do you guy's think?

    Thank's, I will look into that!

    I bought from Crewe Audi, great guy's and really helpful! After having my original factory order rejected they bent over backwards to sort me this car!

    Well, its safe to say I am in love with this thing!

    The fogs definitely need changing, you can see how yellow they are when the leavin/coming home lights activate!

    Where do I start in sourcing some white light replacements?

    Thanks, I have ordered a set now! The orangey light from the fogs is really annoying me when they come on!

    Only other annoyance with the car really is the GALA, why the hell does it see fit to adjust the volume at the most annying and un needed times grrr!

    That aside, the car is just awesome!

    Cheers Si, yours looks great too! Although I do feel a bit guilty seeing as though you have washed yours already and had it a much shorter time

    Cheers mate, I think I have developed a bit of ocd with it already.... opps!

    The GALA thing is just stupid, I have put a request in to a couple of local people to see if someone can sort the options via vcds for me as it's driving me insane. Why anyone would want it is mental!

    Cheers,
    Si

    Yes I think I need to do that too. How do you go about putting in a request? Will it affect warranty? I was half tempted to buy VCDS but I really can't see myself using it that often?

    EDIT: fouund you post Si and posted there too

    There is a map which shows people on here with it and then you can pm them asking/begging for help. I was tempted to buy myself one but I am the same I don't think I would get the use out of it....

    Still loving this car, grin factor is great and compared to my old A3 2.0 TDI 140 it's bloody quick!

    I have now added the LED lighting pack from TR8PS.... what a difference eh!? They look great at night shining at the silver nappa leather seats!

    Also added the Diamond Vison fog bulbs and they have ridden me of the horrible orange glow from the fogs when the coming/leaving home lights activate!

    So.... what's next? I am thinking some pressed plates and ABT Wolfsburg surrounds?

    Also, when I clean the car, it really annoys me that I can't reach the inside of the wheels.. anyone got any tip's to getting them clean?? preferably without having to remove the wheels?

    Cheers
