    Thanks mate, more mods done mid to late october when i get back from the ski season, likely in the following order:

    1. Wheels - RS4 OR Rotors 18inch with Conti Tyres
    2. RS Style Wheel & Air Bag With Silver DSG Paddles
    3. MTM Remap
    4. Gear Knob & New H11 Fog Bulbs

    and money permitting - AMI For RNSE With: 2 Focal Amps, Audison Bit-one Digital Processor,Dyna 3ways Front, dyna 12inch in custom inclosure so i dont lose much boot space. all sound proofed with Focal Bam & Dynamatt.

    After all that not really sure what's left might get the grab handles covered it leather, and coil-overs.

    Any Recommendations greatly appreciated :)

    Hey all, just some updates on mod progress. sorry been away just been a massive last few weeks since returning back from a season in the snow fields,

    Latest Mods:

    * MTM Vtech ECU Tune, now the car is pushing 185Hp and is even better on fuel, its amazing:)
    * Philips H11 Diamond Vision Fog Lights.

    Mods Coming In Next Few Weeks:

    * Gear Knob change to Stronic new style..
    * Ami Install
    * Sort out rev camera so it works in rev gear and dosent have to be selected from RNSE (fingers crossed can do it)
    * RS4 Button install.

    thats it for this year im pretty sure, wheels mabe if i can find them at a good price, and a new flat bottom RS3 wheel if i can find one.

    Back Again!!!!!!!!!! recently purchased some RS6 Wheels with Conti Tyres 18inch and had my calipers professionally painted (4 coats of high heat paint, and mechanically cleaned, so hoping it will hold up for awhile and look as good as it dose now) and AMI finally added,
    how ever it came at the expense of my reversing camera, can anyone tell me how to wire up a AMI & Reverse camera at the same time? on a RNSE 2010 version. ?????????? PLEASE

    Stero getting installed in next few weeks, will post more pics then.
    also looking for a Flat Bottom DSG Steering wheel, if anyone can helpl me out, (im in Australia)

    Let me know what you guys things of latest additions PLEASE:) IMG_1363.jpg IMG_1364.jpg IMG_1366.jpg IMG_1369.jpg IMG_1370.jpg IMG_1371.jpg IMG_1373.jpg Wheels After.jpg Wheels B4.jpg

    Added Sline Rear Valance & Black Edition Grill, What you Guys think? my Exterior is all finished now? Still have Folding Mirrors to be installed & Rev camera & LED footwell lights, then i think the car is pretty well done? might do the leather grab handles and the exhaust, then enjoy it for 14 months before i look at getting a A5 3.0TDI Sline or something like that:) love to know any more mod suggestion you guys would do,

    I do have the guys phone number but I'll be honest if you don't want to pay £300 there isn't any point giving you his number.

    He sells these into Audi dealerships as they can't get any extended leather items.
