Copied from another forum from last year so forget the parts when it mentions days and times lol.
Previous to the Audi i had a Civic EK4 but sadly due to getting a new job further away and with struggling to get more than 240 miles around mk i needed something that`d be better on the mileage seeing as i was going to be doing just over 90 miles a day. Oh and the fact that i was getting a bit bored with it.
Anyway back to the Audi..
Some pics i took. Only driveway pics as it was coming over a bit ****ty and i couldnt be arsed to drive anywhere to take pics lol
3 weeks ago i got the wheels as my standard ones were shagged and the tyres were all screwed. Got some Audi A4 B7 17x7.5 wheels with decent tyres off Pistonheads so thats was sorted and the car looked like this:
Quickly got sick of 4x4 mode so ordered some FK coilovers and fitted them last weekend. Wasnt too bad, Expected it to be worse being a 12yr old car with 105k mileage but everything went ok and they were fitted. Had to raise up the rear though soon after as it was a touch too low lol. Was tucking quite a bit of tyre and scrubbed like a ***** so had to go up.
Today i got some TT calipers, Passat V6 discs and some new pads so i did my new 312mm brake upgrade :D
During/fitted: (Yes i know the pads were the wrong way round! Changed them soon after taking the pic)
Finished and painted:
And then some overall pictures. Was going to go and find somewhere nicer to take some pics after i washed it but it was coming over a bit ****ty and i couldnt be arsed! So the driveway was the option..
All together the list consists of:
Audi A4 B7 alloys 17x7.5
Awesome engraved Forge 007P
Pipercross panel filter
Satin black standard grille
312mm Brake upgrade
Debadged rear end
Xmas i got a silicon TIP and a front upper strut brace so fitted then not long after.
Needing a clutch before anything powerwise ie mapping before it dies i looked at my options and really didnt want to import one from america due to shipping costs and import duties and no one over here does one so looking around and came across one of the TDI forums about using an Audi 80 solid clutch and an Audi S2 clutch. Ordered a flywheel from work and relevant bolts getting ready for the conversion. Ordered an LUK clutch kit from GSF as Audi dont make the S2 clutch kit anymore.
Gave it all to my mate that works at Hewland Engineering in Maidenhead last and he got a guy to machine the flywheel. Basically all the guide pins needed removing and new holes needed drilling and new threads tapped in. Got it back today and im really pleased with the work the guy did and all for 20quid instead of the 75 that a local engineering shop in Bedford quoted me.
