    Sarah (and everyone at Awesome GTI),

    I just wanted to say thanks, very very much for making last week go so smoothly. It really does make the difference when you deal with a Company that is aware and can meet all off your needs.

    I am a very hard person to please as I always over analyse things, making sure I'm doing the right thing, I think Awesome and particularly Sarah needs a medal for being so patient with me and my 1000 questions all via e-mail and through phonecalls.

    For the forum readers who don't know.....

    I dropped the car to Awesome Saturday 24th April and left it with them for the week. They even provided me with a courtesy car!

    I had the following work carried out at Awesome;

    Front and rear Neuspeed ARB`s (22mm Front and 19mm rear)
    Compbrake top mounts
    Awesome rear Tie Bars
    H&R lowering springs
    Bilstein B8 shocks front and rear
    Standard Drop links
    Powerflex bushes
    Powerflex dog mount bush
    OEM brake discs and Tarox pads front and rear
    Supply and fit cruise control
    APR Stage 1 remap
    Full car check with VAGCOM.

    The car is such a nice car to drive now and when I do put my foot down I get the biggest grin, it actually goes fast around a corner now which is something it had lots of trouble doing before.

    I can't thank you enough Awesome. Will be back in the months to come (before the summer) for a downpipe/cats and a stage 2 remap, brembo setup and eventually a BT conversion. I can't wait.

    All thats left to say is a HUGE thanks to everyone at Awesome for making me a very happy person! It's the start of my own project after reading so many other peoples it feels like a huge achievement that I've started my own!

    A few pictures of the journey!

    Forgot to mention a BIG thanks to ESS_Three who I've been in contact with over these last few months. Very Very nice bloke and very very knowledgeable, my suspension has custom geometry as per Ess's specification.

    Well it was either that or do it in stages, thought it was best to get it 100% all done in one go. Although my brakes front and rear are new, a few months and I'll get Brembo's.

    Drive back was great, as was the drive up to be honest, but definitely more-so on the way home, very happy and want to get in it right now for a drive!
