I noticed the passenger window would go down and have some trouble coming back up.
I researched it on here and asked around and was adviced to change the window carriers. Off to the stealers I go, and might aswell order some new wheel bolts while im there.
Got helped by my VAG friendly best mate to change the window carriers. Didn't take pictures because it was a bit wet outside and wasnt too keen on getting the phone out.
Then one morning the car wouldn't start or charge and this happened while out shopping. Had to call the AA, and was advised to buy a new battery. So went to buy a Heavy Duty one to cope with the In Car Entertainment running in the car.
Once Again, No pics.
Lastly in October:
After Lowering the car, the ABS Cables were rubbing on the wheel so that brought up the ABS Light. Off to the stealers again and boy where they happy to see me again! got 2 ABS Sensors and the cables and replaced them just in time for the MOT.
was battling with the wifi my friend
November was a slightly quiet month, managed to convince my other friend to sell me his 18" RS8 Reps and he did it. Yay me! Some photos below.BeforeAfter
Looks better already. 17" are way too small.
