Just thought I would say hello. I picked up a silver '00 1.8T sport saloon at the begining of the year for the bargain price of Ł1700, full leather with FASH (and already remaped after hooking a boost gauge up .. bonus). I have been sorting a few bits out as it needed a little tlc. So far:
- fitted new disks all round with red stuff pads,
- replaced the rear bearings'
- 710N valve,
- new interior mats,
- 18 RS4 wheels to replace the horrible 16" fox items,
- stewart warner boost gauge in a podi gauge holder (from Canada)
A good clean and clay, fresh mot and will be carring out a full service this weekend.(pics soon)
Next job is to fit my becker head unit and replace the rear speakers. Then a little lowering will be in order.
This car will be built on a budget due to impending house purchase but I have a few plans for the future.
I know there's a newbie section but tbh i dont use any other section than the B5 forum.

Welcome dude Car sounds nice, need some pictures for sure! Those Becker HUs are supposed to be awesome, aren't they?
most becker kit is really nice. i love the basic/sensible look of their headunits rather than the garish crap people like to stick in cars nowadays
Learning the VAG way
welcome to the b5 section
yeah its a great unit, built in handsfree too which is a bonus.
