    Cheap as chips !!

    Well as we all are doing little bits and bobs of modding every now and again i though it would be good if we had a 'cheap' mods thread were we can post our little upgrades up they cant be 'steal' upgrades but ones that are sub £100 and are relatively priced parts used or new.

    Cost: £2 for bulb

    This is a free mod, when you can't take the rain scuttle off round the bottom of the windscreen coz some numb head in the past has chewed the plastic heads, heat up a large flat blade screwdriver (heat source is your choice) and stick it in the plastic heads to make a lovely slot, clean off burnt plastic with sharp knife, for asthetics it's best to do both sides!

    Magnetax tax disc holder is a nice cheap way to clean up the windscreen from awful ugly big tax disc holders.

    I've just fitted a £2.95 (delivered) EGR valve blanking plate to my TDI.
    Its relatively thin stainless steel (more like a gasket really) and I've put it on the outlet flange of the exhaust manifold underneath the existing flexy pipe leading up to the EGR valve assembly.
    It doesn't look as if any mod has been done at all.
    There's no longer plumes of black smoke when I give it some welly, the low-down pickup has been transformed and I can't believe the difference it has made.
    Wish I'd known about it (and done it) ages ago!
