    well what happened was, I was driving home from work yesterday morning and bare in mind it was rate second time I've driven this car, since I've had it the DPF light has been on, well all of a sudden it went into limp with the glow plug light flashing, so I took it to a local company who erased the DPF and remapped it the same time, but I was warned not to drive the car much until I've taken the filter out, hence being booked in today for 2:30 and a freezing cold morning having to spin about on my motorbike. British weather is great hey!

    Wider wings yes I like but the rest not enough of a selling point which is why I have a s3 body with the rs3 grill on mine.
    was following an rs3 the other day and honestly didn't know it was an rs till I looked closer and saw the minor differences

    Car looks great, need some sideskirts to complete the beefyness lol. Did you use genuine wings? Lol the 40k is more geared towards the engine. I saw one for 28k, they are gettting cheaper, one day it shall be mine lol.

    I've got sideskirts here to go on, will get body shop to fit them same time as its painted, car goes really well now I've had the DPF filter removed today, its quite rapid to be honest, made me smile anyway :-) still having problems with lights though, obviously DRL's need programming but should my dip beam be working anyway? Because that's all I have and they knock off every couple minutes or start flashing

    cheers mate, I think by the time its painted I would have spent 4.5k, and I still need Rs3 bucket seats and steering wheel. S3 conversion would have been a third of the price so if I had my time again who knows? But this car is for keeps so I don't mind :-)

    I may do away with the RS3 badge or maybe just a thought of getting a nice Tdi badge to put below?? So it be like an RS3 version of the Tdi, or would that be way off the mark?

    wow deep pockets haha
    with regards to RS3 buckets, i've read up that someone had their RS3 broken into and they just stole the bucket seats. The insurance company declared the car a write off due to the cost of the bucket seats!! Maybe theyve dropped in price recently?

    I have been looking and hoping to get a set for £1500 maybe £2000, or maybe some rough Rs4 and have them trimmed which I will most prob do due to lack of Rs3's about.

    Dude, if you like the badges then you keep them. It's your car.

    I think it (the car) looks great. Badges don't offend me as I don't have an RS3.

    Personally, you have ploughed a lot of money / time & effort into the car, if you want to badge it up then go for it.

    Careful with badges, I thought police could have a field day with wrongly badged cars?

    Really? I don't think so, police computers (anpr) only go off when it finds expired tax, mot, insurance etc, so they won't know any information about the car unless they manually run it through the system.

    Copied from another thread

    First go to Central Electronics-->Long Coding-->Function 07
    Things you have to change
    Byte 00 Bit 1 ON
    Byte 03 Bit 4 OFF
    Byte 17 Bit 1 OFF (I think it's off but I forget. Play around)
    Byte 21 (Dropdown box) Choose the one that matches your setup or liking.
    And the finalize your settings - not sure how that goes; should be something along the lines of transfer to long coding and save. It should be trivial (My vag com specialist helped me program as I gave him the coding).

    I've had lights coded but dip seems to knock off after a few minutes until I turn them back on unless there on auto then they knock off after a few minutes then knock straight back on. Everything seems to be fine apart from that? It was mainly the drivers side playing up half way through coding. Will it make a difference of I don't have self levelling fitted? Is there different conversion kits available?

    Cheers guys, just been driving with the DRL's on which is good in a way due to the later nights this time of year but I really do need to sort this issue out, when you say lights themselves do you mean the ballasts included or just the light units? Cheers

    Ps. I only done conversion to this TDi as I wanted a cheap runabout for every day use, which also looks pretty good on the road to. I would have prob bought an Rs3 if I wanted to go down the petrol route, either way I'm happy :-)) apart from the lights of course, does anyone else's rear lights stay on as like DRL's ??

    the rears will stay on if the coding is set to Scandinavian DRL mode within VCDS... Set it to North American to get just the fronts on.

    whats the current situation with the bulbs then?

    Everything was bought off Internet, so I have questioned whether there all 100% the bulbs themselves aren't genuine items but didn't think this would be a problem? Is it best I change them?

    thanks ash for your info on DRL's
