    Had remap taken off today as I've started to get clutch slip.

    Power still seems pretty good just runs out of boost a bit quicker but now I can cruise around in a higher gear than I could have with the map.
    Also no clutch slip at all now.

    Also bought some contact cleaner to clean maf.

    It might be worth speaking to a breaker, when I ebayed mine they were for £1.98 or something stupid so I assumed there wasn't much demand for them!

    If I was in the market for them and Audi ones were too dear (not sure how much they are tbh) I would look to give SGS Engineering in Derby a try. The main body of their business is hyrdaulic and gas strut production, jacks, presses, compressors, all that sort of stuff.

    I personally ordered a mechanics roller stool thingy from them and am very happy with the quality/performance. The guy on the phone was a pleasure to deal with and if I'm not mistaken their struts carry a 2-yr warranty.

I'll go to my local motor factors in a bit and check.
    Be careful with them there at Shrewsbury bro, they haven't got a f'in clue sometimes. I ordered a flywheel bearing last week to be delivered to my garage, often referred to as a needle/spigot bearing. Gave him the correct part number and everything and they sent him a god damn pop-rivet?!?!!?! Luckily the old bearing was fine so my mechanic just changed the clutch and flywheel and built it back up.

    Then yesterday I called to clarify costs and part numbers for all the bits needed to fit cruise and DIS and he's swearing blind that I don't need a new steering wheel control module and that it all just needs coding in with vag.com. I'm telling the dude that's I've done my research and read through many forums, etc, and what he's saying doesn't sound right but he kept going back to saying I don't need a different SWCM. Bear in mind I currently have no cruise, DIS, MFSW, heated wheel, etc? They're turning out to be a bit of a liability at the moment. Best off ringing main dealers, getting the proper info and part numbers then ordering it through TPS.

    Shouldn't make any difference in price between dealer and tps as dealers are supplied by tps only difference will be any discount they are willing to pass on.

    I suppose that makes sense, I've always found TPS a bit cheaper for the parts I've needed to order though. Must be getting the discounts passed on.

    Yeah the rear lights were on the car when we bought it as were the fronts. I think they have quite a nice look to them when they're lit up at night but must admit they do look a bit ripspeed-y at other times of time the day. Not overly keen on the fronts either to be honest, but look different to the originals so they've stayed on and I actually like the darkened look of the lights all round so not really had any burning desire to change them at the moment.



    As for the kit, yes you're quite right, it's a votex kit but not sure what pipe arrangements/styles were available for these cars back in the day. I know it had the kit fitted somewhere between new and when the first owner sold the car when it was approx. 4 months old as I have the sale receipt from when the second owner bought the car back in 2003.
