    Those pedals look good mark, where did you get those and were they difficult to fit? my feet keep slipping off the facory ones - maybe its the rifts?

    They are TT ones as someone else pointed out. Easy to fit as well /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    So have you taken it out for a spin to see if it is quicker Mark?
     
  10. LOL Thats exactly what mine looked like on Thursday!

    I guess you too are hiding a pair of amps in the rear quarter pannel! All thats left of mine is to put the glove box back on.

    As a matter of interest, is your airbag light on now that you have unplugged the "passenger airbag off" switch?

    nice work Mark /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    take it that you will be applying copious amounts of dynamat everywhere? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    expanding foam is always something to consider too, i used lots of it when i had my golf, used it in large areas such as rear quarters (after i had extremed the panel)

    those doors look much easier to extreme than my golf too, that was a damn mission

    oh, have you seen the thread on talkaudio with the jenhert door builds? very lush indeed!

    just waiting for a price on them at the moment

    thats the one ^^

    just waiting on Blinkybill to get me a price for the build - the A3 ones come with speakers, slim ones as standard - MB Quarts IIRC, not what i would have chosen, but hey, you cant have everything i guess!

    i will either go that route or for kick builds i think - almost got the cash together to start on an install myself - kept spending it on other things, remap, wheels, exhaust, suspension /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif
