    Looks really good Chris. Very smart with the black grille surrounds. Did you get photos with the lamin-x on the headlights?
    whats your next plans?

    Hey Ashley, hope your well mate, thanks for the comments. I didn't actually take any pics unfortunately - although I may put some on again gor GTi International - it all went ok fine, looked good (although curing in a little) but because i've got the silver roll bar i just felt it needed a little bit more chrome/silver detailing to be honest.

    Next?! Don't get me started! bigger, lower, wider and beathing better! Oh and a GT30 400+BHP Ł10K Conversion!

    I'm good thanks mate yourself? No problem...Ahh thats fair enough i do think the chrome badge does look better. Well if you do put some on i can always see it at GTI International. I think the chrome badge would probably look better on mine but with all the black and darkness i've just decided to leave it lol. Sounds very interesting who gonna be carrying out this conversion? Bet you cant wait!

    Hey Chris,

    I've only just found this thread, but wow! What a car, all the mod's are tasteful and not OTT. The red interior is really nice, never even knew that was available! Big fan of the Miltek systems, hope to have one of my own some day.

    Thanks for sharing the pics and info

    Hey! I think the car will be with BDM, and in brief, here is the list!!

    GT2871 400bhp Big Turbo

    High Flow Manifold

    3" Downpipe with Sports Cat

    3" Intake Pipe

    Upgraded Turbo, Oil and Water lines

    Forge Singlepass Front Mount Intercooler

    Upgraded Injectors and inline pump

    Revo Stage 3 Software

    Full Internal Upgrade including:

    Skimmed Head

    Valves removed, inspected and lapped in

    Upgrade valve stem seals and valve guides

    Upgraded head gaskets and bolts

    Low Compression Pistons

    Forged 144x20mm connecting rods

    Upgraded bearings, piston rings, pins and clips

    Upgraded Clutch

    Big brake conversion (possibly RS4 B7 all round)

    Basically it will be one of the fastest B6 1.8T Convertibles in the world! Hopefully!!

    Got a little board last night......

    A few of you already know that I like my showplates, so earlier this year I had some chrome ones made and one of them was wrong, therefore useless, but last night I thought I'd spray it to see how it looked totally black (as I'd seen some on a Austrian TT at Edition 38).

    Here is the result:



    I think it came out pretty well! It's still drying a little in this picture, but I'm going to buy some more pressed plates (with my correct reg on!!) and give myself yet another set of showplates!

    I've set myself target to have my car complete by my 21st in May. Would much prefer March 2011 lol but depends on funds! Misses wants to go newyork for her birthday

    Looks good Chris, where did you get your show plates if you dont mind me asking? Should get a quick photo of the plate on the car front end should look soo mean. Thought about shorting the plate?
    Wouldnt mind some for my car. I cant wait for the new year and all the shows. Just need to start on my interior but i can buying exterior stuff lol!

    I tend to buy my plates from either the shows or from eBay - shows are better though as you can see what your getting - Edition 38 had loads for example and well priced too!

    Here is a couple of pictures with them on - to be honest my car is totally ditched in these shots so it didn't photograph very well and I will be changing the surrounds for when I use these plates to total black ones as well........

    Interesting read bud and very clean cab you have there. Can't wait to see the turbo upgrade come together, I noticed you haven't mentioned any motor internal upgrades in your spec, Is 400HP on a stock motor a good idea and do you think the 2871R will get you there?

    Looking good though keep the updates coming

    Het mate, hope your well, yep defo having the internals upgraded/strenghened - i originally looked at 325 and 350 bhp packages which needed a little less but i wanted 400 at least and im possibly looking for NOS for the quarter mile runs - its certainly not going to be winning any competitions but it will turn heads and suprise those who dont know what its running and i can drop the roof of course when doing tbe runs!!

    Love this car, looks real stealthy with the plates on, if only they were legal eh lol.

    You keeping them rims on it? I really like them but some 18s or 19s would look pure sex on it.

    I'm good thanks fella, are you. Glad to hear the internals will be getting done, that 2871 would bend a rod for sure especially if it gets you to 400 horse which if im honest would surprise me, it will without doubt make one fast quattro regardless of numbers and I understand the unexpected thing, NOS aswell, happy days I can't wait to see it come together and it surely will turn heads mate, im sure it already does that. Keep it coming

    Funnily enough! These wheels will become my winter wheels and by March the car will be fitted with coilovers, wheels spacers and some very sweet 19"s! Not saying what though just yet! (Probably because I'll keep changing my mind every other day lol!)

    Audi A4 1.8T Sport Convertible - I had this from new





    1997 Audi A4 1.8 - Just a play thing really - lowered to within a mm of it's life - unfortunately the suspension killed it! Not bad for 220,000 miles though!

    All in hand! The 17's will become the winter wheels and some 19's are on the way right now along with the coilovers, spacers, RS4 ARB and uprated bushes - PS. yours looks mint on the 20's!!

    Not much to update at the moment as everything is being stored in my lock-up ready to be installed. Although at christmas I got a Megs DA G220 which is a brilliant piece of kit. Also, this week I have completely rewired my ICE as when I had it all fitted (proffesionally may I add) the power cable was not really the gauge I wanted and I was having issues with the fuses going and the power cable melting!!! So I went on my gut instinct and ripped my seats and interios along with half the dash and completely rewired everything with much thicker better cable (4 awg), re-grounded it and replaced all the terminals for high quality ones - result? PERFECTION! The JL Audio nows hits the notes brilliantly!

    I'm new to Audi tbh and there's lots of things that could be done !

    Ambient lightning, puddle lights, auto dimming rear view mirror , RNS e , cruise and DIS wiper stalk. The last 2 will be done in a near future then need to lower the car and get some new wheels. The rest will get done outside of the show season i think, guess you're the man if i get stuck with anything
