    Update

    well today me and my mate ( who is an auto sparky) fitted some bits to my audi

    * Puddle lights / Side markers in the wing mirrors
    * 8k HIDS
    * Front door handle LED's ( need to fit the rear ones)
    * 10mm front hubcentric spacers ( need to buy and fit 15mm rear spacers)


    Started the day by removing both door cards, front headlights ect we wanted the lights to come on when the central locking putton was pressed.. so we took the feed from the centre light unit not being able to find any other source to take it from,
    off came the casing of the mirrors so we were able to route the cables.

    we hit a couple of snags.. woundering if the voltage on the light unit would drop enough to turn the LEDs off?
    and routing the wires for the door handle ones around so they didnt get caught when the windows went down ect.

    fitting the HIDS was a doddle and the spacers give a chunkier look to the front

    Like the colour not seen this before is this a factory paint option ? black wheels look sick also was thinking of getting a Carbonio air intake for my DTM-did your car feel any different when you changed to a pipercross filter ?

    Cheers James

    hey mate it felt smoother yeah, what engine have you got in your DTM? i do believe that Audi brought out a custom colour choice meening you could sellect any colour they have ever done and have your car sprayed in that colour, so i think when bought new this was an option on this car

    Have you considered smoothing the line between the top bit of the bumper with the bottom votex bit similar to how the S4 bumper comes in 1 piece rather then 2.

    I've seen I think 2 people who have done it and it just transforms how the front look.

    Anyways I'm envying the blue finish on your car.....Beautiful!

    Keep it up!

    Well time for an update

    I have recently bought a new set of sexy alloys. BMW tiger claws

    Front 19x9 et43 running 225 tyres
    rear 19x10 et 43 running 225 tyres (sexy stretch)
    whilst getting them fitted I had my windows tinted to give it that sleeker look

    Now I know it won't be to everyone's taste but I think it looks clean and the car has so much more presence and stance

    Future plans

    Coilovers
    eyebrows
    window deflectors
    maybe roof spoiler


    Thoughts and comments

    Really like this car - great colour.
    Personally, I prefer the black wheels - just think it suits the theme of the car a little better.

    Do you have much in mind for the engine? - I have the same one so would be interested to see how your planning on squeezing out some more power.
    Mine is going in for a full stainless system early next month along with a re-map. - possibly a hybrid turbo in the future along with injectors (but think that's it for the V6 TDi unless mega money is spent)

    where you getting the exhaust from, as i'm after the "cat" section on mine, unless you want to sell yoursto me cheap as i want to knock "the "cats out" so it'll spool up a bit quicker.

    haha i was thinking about doing the same thing i have no idea one guy quoted me 340 take out the two cats at the front ( not the one from the turbo)

    as it stands i have mine mapped by Big Fish tunning .. rear silencer delete making t a little louder and an open cone filter (large one) making a lush turbo wooshing noise

    i realy do fancy a stainless system... let me know how yours goes? ... you could always try the EGR Blanking mod along with the mr Muscle turbo cleaning mod..., i dont know what injectors or turbo i could go for as much as i would like to change them and as far as i am aware the wing mounted intercoolers are more then capible of colling the air so no point in a front mount

    what research have you done?

    Not much if im honest - just read here and there that the injectors and nozzles (for spray patterns) can be changed.
    Did you notice much difference from the map?
    I will report back on mine once the exhaust its done (less than two weeks) - but believe the cat & pre-cat are both quite restrictive meaning the turbo takes slightly longer to spool.

    Been looking into the clutch setup aswell - Ideally I would like to convert mine to a single-mass flywheel - but there is absolutely nothing out there!
    Found a lad on here that will hybrid the turbo for a decent price - so may have that done once funds allow.

    Sachs SRE does a SMF and clutch for the v6 tdi which will take all you can throw at it, however the standard clutch is pretty strong and wont slip unless the map is very aggressive.
    If you don't intend to take it over 250Bhp then a Sachs SRE uprated pressure plate and organic clutch will do the trick, they are listed as 15-20% improvement but Sachs claims are rather conservative and they are up to 30-40% stronger than the stock which will take a lot of abuse.
    Who's the chap that does the hybrids and what he's going to do to it ? From a performance point of view a GTB2260Vk will do the business and will spool as low as 1500 rpm's which will take care of the lag !
    As for the exhaust, every decent exhaust fabricator will be able to give you at least a 2" twin cat back system, get rid of the cats and you'll have a nice burble at tickover and no extra noise at speed as the turbo does a good job of silencing the engine.

    well today i decided to change the wiper arms blades and linkage over on the Audi, i wouldnt have had to change the linkage but the spline and the threads twisted and snapped off, so hears a quick write up

    First remove the plastic covers




    Remove the skuttle Pannel



    Remove the Ecu strap undo the top cover of the ecu box T30 Torx and undo the ECU box ( 8+10mm nuts)
    this will give you room to move the linkage out..




    at that point remove all three 10mm bolts ( easily located) and wiggle the assembly out not forgeting to remove the plug from the motor

    and in the famous words of Haynes refit is the reverse of taking apart... fit the new wipers to the spline




    Next plans

    Parking sensors
    Refurbed wheels
    Lowering on coilovers
    Cruise control
    Parrott Kit (ipod)
    Carbon Wrapping some interior parts
    Larger brakes ( S4 B6)

    That is all for now

    Wow! This is a superb project! Loved the step by step guides, made it a lot more interesting.

    Your Audi colour is simply outstanding, that was always my first choice but was too rare to find!
