    Thanks mate, means a lot ! :)

    As for the engine plastics, i dont think i paid more than £40 for the scuttle panel, abs cover and batter cover and £12 for the air box cover but i got a mate @ TPS so got a discount and stuff. Ill dig out the invoice later and let you know the exact prices :) They all will fit and tbh i think the air box cover will be a better fit than in mine.

    Thanks

    Oh forgot to add, im still missing one cover in the top left corner which goes on top of the ECU box , even with discount it was £12 so i didn't get one at the time but i might in future :)

    Hi mate.

    That steering wheel is a story of my life tbh, i never received it after a month or so wait and got my money back 2 weeks later thru paypal.

    Im now saving up for a flat bottom one instead :)

    As for the fitting, i've got a mate up here in Hartlepool (he's on here, look for jb0o) i've got his mob. number if you need it. He retro fitted my cruise control and DIS so i was gonna ask him to fit my new steering wheel as well as he's done it many times before ! It's pretty easy you just need the right tools tbh. If you haven't got the MFSW now then "I think" you might need a MFSW comfort module. See i had the MFSW but no CC or DIS which was weird but i had the "highline" ecu and all the modules in place so installing the DIS and CC was just plug & play really.

    So you've fitted HIDs to head lamps that aren't designed for them and as such blinding oncoming drivers. Shocking...

    So , on saturday just before DC11 i expected my 25mm spacers to arrive - they didn't. I was going to take the adjusters out as well, of course it rained all day so i've done nothing !

    Anyway, had an awesome day on sunday , well worth the 450 mile round trip :)

    Today straight after work i've done some bits and bobs :

    Adjusters out, only lower by about 10mm so rubbers are coming out tomorrow !

    Nice one mate looks awesome. When you removed the rear rings was there a hole or is it just glued on? I'd like to remove mine also, looks mint!

    Ive left the threaded cup part in place mate , ive only removed the adjuster rings. If i removed the cup itself then the spring would just slide all over the place coz there's no way i could secure it even with tie wraps lol The rubber ring im gonna take out tomorrow is the one that sits on top of the spring, it's a good 25mm thick !

    Glad you like it matey :)

    Thanks lads , appreciate it :)

    I thought of spraying the grille black but i think it goes well with the wheels and breaks the front end a bit.

    as for the engine covers they're all genuine audi items :)

    it wont go over speed bumps in a normal manner but there are ways of going over them :)

    the other day ive tidied the engine bay a little, took the carbon wrap off the caps and sprayed them all in matt black, ripped the sound proofing of the bonnet and gave it a general clean

    people think im a drug dealer so they dont touch it , i have to drive on top of 2 pieces of wood just to put a widow maker under the car so i can raise it up a bit so i can slide a trolley jack under it so theres no chance anyones gonna nick the wheels either.

    i usually sleep at my girlfriends in hartlepuddle anyway so it's not in gtown all the time :]

    This is the best thread ive read for a while! makes we want to fetch my cc and start spending lol, hopefully going lower on Eibach 50/40mm springs next month, and i guess thats where it starts!

    Getting married next year so not a whole lot of money left to spend on the car.. hopefully after the wedding though will get allot more done!

    Just a quick question about the valve you are using which make the very nice sound when changing gear... how much and wear from.. is it easy to fit?
