    Hey guys

    Well its time to make a project thread, progress on this will be as quick as possible but i want to do it right, i have loads of ideas flowing round in my head to make this my own.
    i have only owned the car a week but i have ordered a Pannel filter, and uprated fog lights she is also booked in for a remap at BIGFISH tuning at the end of this month figures should be around 210-215bhp and 320fb :)

    took a couple of pics the other day when we have nice weather up north so will let them do the talking. :)

    Lovely car mate, is it Kingfisher blue? Always wanted a Kingfisher as my 1st choice!

    Like the plan for the RS4 exhaust, look forward to seeing how it goes!

    Impressive torque figure, I'm hoping to get around 400Nm out of my 2.0TDi with plug and play. Is the pannel filter a K&N type?

    oh deer... yeah.. Curt you are right... it is utter ******** haha and Diffas no need to have said it they way you did and unfortunatly i know a fair bit about tuning.. turbos ect ect .. so i will leave it be and i am sure the likes of KnN and pipercross have put millions in to research and develop ment.. i meen i am not just cracking a halfrauds special on and a geet big dump valve on my diesel....


    Moderaters can we please clean up the bull **** on my thread so we can move on and foward... i think the discusion of performance pannel filter filtration should be left to a technical thread :)

    Any Way......... little bit of an update

    i havent driven the car yet incase the turbo exploded!!! due to the new filter so its sitting on my drive, i took this oportunity to fit some silvertec indicator bulbs to the rear of the car :) very simple subtle cheap mod to get rid of the " Fried Egg" look i also debadged the rear and will be getting a black audi badge instead of the chrome one :)


    took the light unit out and cleaned behind the light ( because i am anal)

    [​IMG]

    Light with Orange tinge

    [​IMG]

    Replaced the bulbs both sides and now have the clear look uptop with the amber flash :)

    [​IMG]

    will let you guys know how the car feels when i drive it in regards to the filter change :)

    Yea I noticed that lack of knowledge you have of tuning that's why decided to bring up _different_ opinion about cheap filters.
    None taken. :)

    Keep on working - car still looks nice.

    After
    [​IMG]

    i was looking for these sorts of exits mayb instead of cutting the grills and putting rs4 / rs6 style tips. i would just put round tips in.


    a bit like this
    [​IMG]

    then fitted my side lights ( just LED Canbus ones )
