    There's a guy on the AOC forum who has just bought a second cab to make into a trailer! It's the same colour, going to have the same wheels etc, and with a working roof etc, like this:

    I've had mine since February and have done the following:

    Cruise Control
    Later BT module for iPhone compatibility
    RS4 carbon trim retro-fit
    replacement battery cover
    anti-dazzle mirror retro-fit
    replaced one aluminium side panel on windscreen (black metal strip had fallen out)
    RNS-e Mk2 (including swapping the bezel from my RNS-e Mk1)

    Latest mod was to fit a cabrio-module remote interface so I can drop / raise the hood via the remote.

    Current gripe is passenger side mirror isn't heating up - VCDS shows 00944 fault code.

    When coding the windows you need to code the car as an avant. This gets theremote windows working, only dissadvantage is it stops you folding the roof down from the door lock but I never used that anyway, use my remote windows a lot in the summer! I'll try and find the coding for you.

    how did you get the roof to drop from the remote. Now that's something I need.

    I installed a 'Remote Roof Module' - from reinhold-engineering

    It wasn't easy soldering onto the existing wiring in the drivers door, but I got there in the end.

    I got mine on German ebay.. I think next time I'd go for a SmartTop module instead as those plug in with no soldering required.

    VR6Gordie - what colour is your car - looks absolutely gorgeous?
    I just bought my car at the weekend (03 1.8Tsport cab)and I think its Moro Blue (although that might be the TT colour name??), but could do with some TLC. Would you be able to tell me how you've got your car looking so amazing i.e. what products have you used?

    Hi vr6Gordy, almost can't believe it's the same colour, my paint just looks so flat compared to yours! Did you use a DA polisher to get yours so good? I've only ever polished/waxed by hand but I think I'm going to have to go to extreme lengths to get this car up to scratch!
    i presume juicy detailing is well regarded on here?
    Yes, in Stanley, are you north east based too?

    Hi everyone, I know it's a thread about who's done the most to their cabbies, and I've done absolutely nothing to mine lol. But I saw it as a good opportunity to join the forum. Here's mine,totally stock albeit with a fake Kate Middleton and Union flags for the jubilee.
