Playing around with photoshop with ttrs wheels/ dark led light/ stainless exhaust/ s3 spoiler etc
Wasn't sure what colour to do this, all i can say is I tried! lol, not sure weather to keep or get a carbon cover, at least the carbon cover wont have ''5v'' on it, i wished it just said '20v' like most of the vw golf's etc-
After painting the cover White/ red/ blue, not liking it, then painting it all blue, it still looks **** in the engine bay, so i decided to get a plain Forge carbon cover soon & maybe put an Audi badge on top
De badged the 1.8t today, sprayed the parcel shelf black, put on new l.e.d side lights, blue calipers, bosch aero wiper blades, pollon/ particulate filter, and Audi-sport.net stickers
If you plan to do much more, you might want to get rid of the engine cover all together.
The AGU is a nice simple lump without all the ancillary **** of the later cars, so looks quite smart with the inlet manifold and rocker cover just painted up
Could save a load on a carbon engine cover! and spend it on a set of porsche oil / water caps instead!
Sorry bud, but are you meaning to go and write it of in halfords??
Those rear lights are terrible !
Yeah ive been thinking that, what would you suggest ? keep standard ? or different l.e.d rear lights
Replacing them with facelift lights is what most do to freshen up the look. It doesn't require any modifications apart from getting different bulbs for the blinker. There are probably some good aftermarket ones, but most seem very dodgy visually and give the good ol' ricer look imo.
Yeah i went down that route, cheers, bit more to do- sorry for blurry pic
The oil breather was all choked up, so got new silicone blue ones from creations motorsport-
Nice new solid mass flywheel/ pp/ clutch & bearing fitted -
And some drilled, grooved, vented brakes & mintex pads -
Bought a new facelift/ s3 style gear stick/ knob, of course being a cheap ebay jobbie it needed fettling a bit -
Popped on the Audi-sport.net stickers-
Had new windscreen put in courtesy of my insurance, not loosing any no claims or excess outlay which was nice -
Autoglass managed to leave the washer hose disconnected under all the scuttle panel,
which they came back out to do, but they put the wipers on slightly wrong causing them to lock the arms together burning the motor out. jesus, called them again- and after a bit of cheeky ''who's at fault'' & can you prove it etc, managed to get a new wiper motor off them, which they fitted,
I then bought a new 'mechanism' to be sure, All works fine now
Don't normally put stickers on my car, but thought this one was quite relevant
Installed these new spark plugs at same time of doing the rocker/ gasket-
A few random pics including-
an Autoglass man on the hottest day trying to get it right,
Polish gaiter/ frame textile fettling,
beside a friends car (marineiguana on uk-mkivs forum)
upgraded (slightly blue l.e.d's - to - better white ones
my fancy keyring
Repaired the slow sticky window that eventually ground to a halt ! with the help of my friend Allen (aka my Edd China)
Was amazed that his hunch of it being a corroded cable in that area being right, after trial & error with a few other things,
a nice regulator repair kit off Ebay helped
