    Got my Ram air filter today. Unsure weather to make a nice metal pipe push it towards the front of the car and make a heatshield and intake all in one. or just make a heatshield like the Jabbasport one i had on the leon with the standard air intake to match.

    Sorry for the late reply' Wheels are 8.5J all around ET35

    Well no real update' Getting the paint and bumper fitted after winter now as makes alittle sense to me' Ordered a new 3 button flip key a while back and they sent 2 out which was alittle result. still yet to transfer over' Have no real go lately but if this week isnt busy thinking of starting to make the induction kit i have in mind using the Ram Air filter.

    Nice to have the ability to take it off the road and do the jobs at your own pace, without being subject to the pressure of time. Good luck.

    Lovely car, looks the same as mine before you modded it, same wheels and same black / charcoal colour. Mines only a 2.0 petrol though and that seem thirsty enough! I'd love that spoiler for mine.

    Only picture what i have from today' Painted the Cam covers' Asked for VHT crackle red to be sent down and they sent smooth, Couldnt be bothered so just used it and was happy with it. The picture looks alittle odd as used an Iphone and had a flare light on so doesnt look really red like it does. Also managed to get all the new Pulley's Roller's and tensioners on along with New metal impellar water pump. Just the belt to get on now and that will be Monday

    I see, going to end up with the OEM B7 RS4 look to it.


    Also I wouldn't say mine looks any less classy.

    Never meant that just meant the red on the inlet is abit too much for me, if I was going to do it I would be doing black but like the dark silver to break it up abit and like it against the red, thinking of going purple wheels so the bottle caps might sbe going purple with a purple strut brace

    Some good progress, like it alot! - surprising how similar the 2.5TDi V6 and Petrol V6 engines are - pretty much all the pulleys & ancillaries are in the same place.

    Did your wings come pre-painted? I need to replace mine.

    Love what you did with the cam covers. Looks very OEM like on the RS5 I've seen.

    What branded arms did you use?
