    Looks tidy enough mate and leather too Personally I would swap the grill for an RS4 or S4 item as the mesh looks a bit Halfords/Rippspeed and the spoiler is crying out to be colour coded to the car.

    Thanks guysI am planning on basic things first. Meaning sorting the temp issue out. Etc.Not sure after that. If i need more speed i have a more aggressive chip that i was given with the car for higher performance but poorer drivability. Atm there is plenty of bodywork and other stuff to keep my busy. I will update new pocs over the weekend of progress

    It'll be the thermostat. If you want to prove it before spending any money, drive the car around for 10mins so its warm, then park up and leave it idling for 5-10mins. If the temp rises while parked, then its almost certainly the thermostat.

    Agree with aragon. Mine started to go stone cold on the temp gauge when doing 80ish but was fine in town., changed the status and been fine since.

    Thermostat done. Temp gauge now sits at 90 Right i think my maf and throttle body need cleaning. When idleing i can see the throttle body moving on its own. Uneven idle abd a little and poor throttle response occasionally. Finally the raear creaks over speedbumps and uneven surfaces especially on twisty roads does not do it over potholes though. Any ideas guys. Besides that the cars running well
