    Update to car - Pics.

    Made a couple of small changes.





    I have fitted that OMP steering wheel as I had it in the house and fancied seeing what it is like on the car. Is quite nice having a smaller steering wheel, will see if I still like it after a month. If I do I will get a Momo team 300 wheel and if not I will put the standard sport wheel back on. Some will also notice the boost gauge that I fitted the other week.

    There is another change in there too, anyone see it?


    I also got my dark wheels redone as they were all chipped, the guy did an awesome job.





    Just need to wait for a couple of new tyres to come from MyTyre now.


    While I was waiting I took a couple of pics of the car.








    I have 15mm spacers on the front now with longer bolts but have some bolt to hub ones on their way which I bought off a forum member.

    I also have a couple of new front door trims coming as they are a little ripply.


    Cheers.

    Yeah same here. Will change it to a momo team if I still want a smaller one, the omp one is just a tester since I had it off my old pug.

    I'm sure I read that if you remove the airbag then you may well run into problems with insurance as you are effectively removing a standard safety item. Might be worth considering. You don't want to find out after an accident that you have invalidated your insurance.

    I like the wheels but I'd put the steering wheel back and not just because of the air bag issue.
    I'm an optimist but I don't think it helps much.

    My dials were in the car as standard. The 1.8T quattro models came with them.

    The steering wheel is nice, but not in a modern airbagged motor. Save it for when you get a Ur quattro

    Nope will give you all a clue, its on the door.

    The shifter has been on a while now, is the B&M one. Same with the Funk button next to the fog light switches.

    I was just going to say the handles, I changed mine some time ago as I was not in to the chrome thing.

    Just put a resitor 4ohm resitor in the plug that should turn it off just like my seats.

    My light did not come on at first but came on later on, it has a 2ohm resistor. I thought maybe the connection was not too great which resulted in the light but maybe I need a 4ohm one?
