    lovely car mate! im not so sure on the silver Ch and the rest being black. maybe shadow chrome or titanium on the alloys?

    the roof certainly looks good too mate, would you consider getting that rear spoiler done carbon as well?

    rockape- i got the plates from a online show plate maker cant remamber the name
    tdi140- complete bumper-wings-headlights-bonnet-grill maybe up forsale next year if all goes to plan
    aiden - i damaged 1 wheel and was proving difficult to get a exact replacement so just bought new wheels :)
    itwasntme187- wheels will be going a diffrent colour if they get damaged, still toying with spoiler but few other things are going carbon :)

    cheers for comments guys

Also give the underneath of engine a quick clean up.
    Here is the subframe striped off and old anti roll bar off read for new anti roll bar and anti lift kit
    [URL="http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o103/CHRISBROWN_059/audi/IMG_1268.jpg%5b/IMG"]http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o103/CHRISBROWN_059/audi/IMG_1268.jpg[/IMG[/URL]]
    Old castor mount and new anti lift & castor adjust mount, (note old is from o/s of vehicle new is for n/s)
    [IMG][URL="http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o103/CHRISBROWN_059/audi/IMG_1270.jpg%5b/IMG"]http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o103/CHRISBROWN_059/audi/IMG_1270.jpg[/IMG[/URL]]

    Sub-frame, new anti roll bar and anti lift kit fit and lower gearbox mount bushes

    Old anti roll bars and castor mount and new rear anti roll bar
    [IMG][URL="http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o103/CHRISBROWN_059/audi/IMG_1276.jpg%5b/IMG"]http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o103/CHRISBROWN_059/audi/IMG_1276.jpg[/IMG[/URL]]
    New rear anti roll bar fit

    Over all the results are fantastic the ride quality hasn’t got any worse, there is no body roll on the car comin into or in the corners, the turn in is so much sharper and there is no engine movement thanks to the lower gearbox mount all together feels alot more planted to the road and gets the power straight down
    C&C welcome
    Cheers chris

    Absolutely gorgeous car - although I'm not feeling the silver alloys with the black grille and roof, I'd prefer them in anthracite.

    well i for one am very pleased with Teesside Audi's service today, took my car in for the injector recall, got 4 new injectors, free car health check, free MOT which it sailed through and a free wash and valet and the best bit is i now have 0.3 bar more boost pressure, and my slight missfire in 6th under load has gone and my bad starting in the cold has gone, the car now drives so much smoother and pulls a hell of alot better :arco:
