    From one 1.8t to another

    If i bought a scrap facelift 1.8t sport (very cheap) how difficult and how much work do you think it would be to move everything from that car onto mine?
    Bose, Remote Locking, ECU, Wireing, Dash with DIS etc?

    My current chasis is in good nic, and the enigne has had a complete rebuild so dont want to replace it just update. I could move my stuf into the spares or repair car but i prefurr mine as its black.

    Cheers

    i wouldnt say it would be a hard job, just a big one.

    You'd basically need to strip both cars interiors out, and move the entire harness over, then go thru transferring each component thats been updated.

    Even things like the Airbag ECU's are different, so you'd need to transfer those over along with the facelift column and wheel etc...

    if its the silver ebay one ill be bidding and i rarely loose! (unless my computer freezes again with 15 sec to go as it did yesterday)

    it would involve a lot of work virtually everything is different on a facelift so it would mean stripping both to bare shells

    Sadly as said, you would need to strip them pretty much to shells.

    Been there and done that to update the purple car to mostly facelift.

    If it's this one...

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AUDI-A4-AVANT-...d=p3286.c0.m14

    ... and one of you get it, could you see your way to letting me have the bonnet & front bumper for mine at special mate's rates? I've been searching for them for AGES! Could do a special part-ex deal on them if you want to keep the shell in one piece...

    Would you be willing to sell the bonnet to someone in need?

    Gotta say though, that interior looks blue... just like mine. Very dark blue, almost black.

    probably is blue then, has yours got velour seats aswell?

    whats up with your bonnet?

    depending on whats up with turbo i might fix it up and swap some parts with mine dont know yet but its never going to be a minter so im sure we could sort something out

    ras, soiled might be an understatement but discovered 'flash with bleach' will clean just about anything, used it on interior of kingfisher and it looked like new but you have to dilute it though

    Awesome! I don't mind coming over to Stoke and doing a trade on the bonnet (and front bumper if you're not going to use it). My interior a very dark blue, but it's all leather.

    The bonnet has some shallow dents in it (from the previous owner shutting the bonnet too hard) and a few scrapes where something's gone across it at some point, and the bumper is stone chipped, with a single scrape down the drivers side. Probably sounds worse than it actually is, but if I've got the chance of swapping panels over instead of painting them, it would be fantastic!

    Semi-excited now! (in a non-sexual way)

    its looking like any day next week
    seller wouldnt accept paypal so ive done bank transfer online as i wont be picking it up myself
    used www.shiply.com for transport quotes, quite good its a reverse auction, you put ebay item number in and then transport companies send bids, its all on view so each quote gets slightly lower

    That's a really clever idea.

    Let me know when you've got your sticky mitts on it and we can talk turkey about the bonnet (if you are still up for doing a trade on mine).

    Would you sell all the bose stuff from this on?? I would fit it as you said its an improvement over standard and i can not be bothered with other amps and installs etc.

    Its not really free if you just paid 750 for the car now is it :P

    Fair enough though, just seems a lot of effort to fit something thats not actaully that good.

    I dont really listen to blasting tunes either, our motor has a pioneer head unit that iirc cost about 40quid on ebay, the stock door speakers, and a sub in the boot in a fibreglass enclosure with a sony amp that was another ebay special.

    Taking the bass load off the main speakers makes them handle the rest of the range much better, and the sub provides a nice bit of punch. I found the Bose system in craigs S4 to sound a bit "muddy". Its as though theres a hidden EQ somewhere thats rammed the bass controls up thru the roof, and it just doesnt sound that nice to me.
