B7 Cabrio - mods start next week!
My car is booked into Awesome GTI in Manchester on 1st August to have a Milltek exhaust system fitted. The guy I spoke to at Awesome (Andy) was really helpful, and having spoken to Milltek, although it has not been done by them before, they are confident that the saloon version of the 2.0TFSI 2WD system will fit the cabrio, even with the extra cross-bracing in place.
Milltek cannot provide the quad tips I wanted unfortunately, but the standard ones just clamp on. Awesome know of a place locally that will be able to fabricate some bespoke tips to fit the system, so it should be an easy job to swap them over. I'll be getting this done as soon as the S4 diffuser/valance is delivered.
The R8 alloys are being sprayed next week in a specially mixed matt version of Vauxhall's "Technical Grey" (complete with flattening agent and matt lacquer).
I'm also going to get the bodyshop to spray a pair of mirror covers the same colour. I have genuine S4 matt alu mirrors on the car at the moment, so I'll be having the original 'brilliant black' mirrors sprayed the same as the wheels - hope it looks OK, otherwise I'll stick with the S4 versions!
Finally I'll be lowering the car (only slightly), hopefully at the same time the exhaust is fitted, as on the 19" alloys it looks a bit too high at the moment, even though it is an S-Line. Probably just going for Eibach springs at the moment - may go for full coil-over setup at a later date...
So the car should soon look exactly as I want it!
