    Will upload better pictures later as unfortunately it came on a rainy day, got S4 door blades from Andy_Foz, s-line rear bumper, new mirror and the car's been colour coded all round. Now planning to speak with adamss24 about some performance upgrades, then all that's left is finally getting 'round to putting the b7 front end on.

    Cheers, will be in touch shortly.

    EDIT: Should be tomorrow around 2-4ish if your reading

    Thanks.

    Haha yeah she's ancient, sometimes fools people into thinking it's a private reg but to be fair with the restoration and new parts it should fool 'em.

    Didn't think anyone would notice haha yeah three months without a wing mirror, I am king of putting things off which has reminded me again to call Chris.

    Cheers.

    Pretty sure the local cat had it's way with my car again :nunu: paw prints give the beast away every time.

    Cheers, yeah is better that it's there just takes the piss that it came off so soon.

    Yeah think the one screw hole grew too big (some how, seems like **** labour to me). Current solution is using a bigger self tapping screw... just hope that lasts, might pick up tiger seal tomorrow just to be sure.

    Has to be done haha, won't happen for a while yet though currently have the B7 bumper, lights and loom just need more pieces to the puzzle.

    Picture looks horrid as the flash ruins it in this dark hour but this is the valance I didn't use, also have RS4 style plastic honeycomb mesh for it (from Germany, none of that cheap chicken wire ****) and spare bumper.
