    er......good question, its about right looks wise, probably stick bigger wheels on it eventually but for now its gotta be engine, exhaust,then suspension and brakes. so i gotta find somewhere local to do a remap for a good price, then chip it, then fmic and de-cat it, then will hav to start looking into bigger injectors and uprate the fuel pump. any idea where will do a good remap other than i dealer in the lincolnshire area?!?

    looks tops mate, I take it the entire b7 wing can't be fitted to the b6 so you had to graft the ends in?

    Strange when everything else fits, I would have thought the wings would bolt straight on.

    WOW great mod. mate!!!
    "evilscotsman" - The problem with B7 is the decent styling "line" going from front light to the rear light so the B7 wing wont fit B6 door
    Thats why he had to cut it (auch)

    Aw, that sucks. Bloody brilliant mod all the same!

    Well done matey, that took skill to get them new wing ends to match up at the cuts been there before!

    I really like that - if I ever saw you out and about I would be confused as hell - what was going through your mind as you cut off the front of the wings????

    oh, still readin the comments. i gotta say i'm fairly shocked at the good feedback, i've seen some mixed reviews about others who have done similar things but i love it! you can just bolt the b7 ones on scots but like dodo said it just doesn't look spot on and if your gonna do summat its best just to bite the bullet and go for it, otherwise everytime you go to jump in your car its the bits you copped out on that'l catch ur eye.

    i guess dodo, but like i say, some ppl prefer things to be left alone which is understandable but i like the b7 front and the b6 rear, so if i had a b7 i'd probably just do an arse end transplant! but yeah, i'm happy with the results and just pleased that everyone on here is chuffed to see it can be done. the wings do fit roy but the body line is different and it doesn't look a smooth correct line so if you can its best, in my opinion anyway, to do a hybrid of the two, but you'll more than likely need a b7 slam panel as well for it to fit neatly but you can still use your old b6 rad in it tho coz it will go.

    The nose of the Hofle conversion is too deep as well, makes it look like a volvo.

    Yours is obviously perfect as its the oem one, well done mate!

    first off RESPECT! secondly that is excellent work, the reason i hate that hoffelllelefeflle kit is because the front of the B7 looks wrong with the B6 headlights but youve obviously irradicated this. bloody respect man!

    cheers jim mate! and yeah j7uss, i got an old issue of redline with a b6 from the states with a 1.8t lump in it and at the time it was runnin 550 brake!!! 550!! from a 1800!! but judgin by the spec it had very little internal work done to it, think it only had forged con rods to stop the pistons from lettin go! i'll have to dig it out and find the exact spec, but it had been revo'd and had a turbo on it the size of my other toy car(corsa b redtop). the lad who owns it was like 'yeah, there is a fair bit of lag but once it spools up it takes your head off!! ya reckon?!? i might not go silly like that but i wanna aim for the 300+ area by this time next year.

    Nice job matey, very nice, I would consider the xenon adaptive upgrade aswell fella that would finish that front end of nicely, Kufatec could prob supply the loom etc, but very well joined have to say, the splicing of wings that is, nice one.

    ahhhh!! i see now! that looks pretty mint actually, i can see the volvo resemblance but still. nice colour to have them in too. but yeah, the oem parts and newer headlights do make the difference i think. cheers for the info roy!! i was toying with the idea of trying to fit the b8 lights in the other day but think i'll leave it for now. i do miss my xenons tho, thats the only draw back from it.

    AS they say, Fecking AA brother, lol

    The xenons will top that job of a treat, especially the adaptive ones that go round corners/up/down with suspension & bixenon for dipped/main, lovely jubbly as delboy says.

    can you be a bit more explanatory about the modding the engine bit?

    Reason I ask is why cant you do that here anyway or have I completely missed the boat on that one fella?

    Sorry if being thick tonight, lack of VAGcom for a week, lol.
