    IM GOING BT GUYS!!!!!!


    Well.... not really.. But i am doing a few things to the car which i thought id share! Im not looking to go stage 2 this year but i have ordered (or waiting) on a few things for the car..

    I'll start off with whats already been done to the car..
    • Full Bilstein B8's and H&R dampers and springs
    • Neuspeed ARB's front and rears
    • Adjustable rear tie arms
    • Custom code stage 1 remap
    • Forge TIP
    First thing i wanted was a B5 TIP as i feel left out (that and karl teased me at xmas as he had one and i didnt) so as soon as Bill gets more in stock then im down to get one!! I also thought id get the car checked from him as my head seems to think the car isnt as quick as it used to be so just to be sure...

    Second thing i wanted seeing as many of you have them already are some brembo's! Ive looked everywhere for some lcr brembo's and they seem to be so expensive!!! Luckily ive managed to get a Brembo GT kit with discs ferodo DS2500 pads and braided lines for £450! they've had 5k through them but are in good nick! Im picking them up on sunday with S3 Rav so that should be nice! The only thing is that they have a little scuff on them:

    [​IMG]

    Anyone know a good refurbish company for these in the midlands?

    Also Just ordered some TFSI coils from awesome GTI for £77 which has been dispatched! So to those who ordered them a while back, check your emails as yours might be on their way!

    Also (thanks to tufty and trups) ordered some LED lighting which im waiting to be delivered! Cant wait to fit them! Also got some Porsche oil and coolant caps (thanks to ScottB5) which should be through hopefully soon!

    Car is also due for a nice little detail soon as i have 2 weeks off in may/june but needs a front and rear bumper respray and a few dents taken out inc a MONSTER dent on the passengers side door.

    I'll add some pics of everything else when it all arrives but i think thats enough for now lol! Its a nice few upgrades to the car and alot of money spent! I havnt even mentioned the car has had 4 brand new Michelin PS3's fitted a few weeks back to!

    That should keep me happy for a few months!

    Thanks for reading and hopefully upload a few more pics soon

    Gops, I can safely say you will love the Brembo's especially with the DS2500's. So glad to have them fitted again after a year of Brembo pads, which do the job well but the DS2500's are simply awesome! If you like to brake late like I do, they will amaze you and scare the **** out of your passengers. :)

    What can be said about the V2 Tip that hasn't already been said, mine was installed just under two weeks ago and I fookin love it man!!!

    ...I also fitted the LED interior lights yesterday, even though I took Tuffty's advice to be gentle I still managed to cock up my drivers side sun visor light as the clip got caught and now doesn't sit flush :wacko:. The OEM map lights disintegrated in my hand as I tried to remove them and the puddle lights are also a tight fit so go easy with them.

    Keep up the good work.

    Rightiooooo A little update to what ive been doing! As many of you know I had a juddering problem at full throttle which turned out to be my coilpacks! So i threw the old ones away and fitted my TFSI ones that came through the post and with my LED lights!:

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    At that time however i didn't have any adaptors but my dad decided he does love me and made me these!!

    [​IMG]

    First time he made them and they fit perfectly! Heres a test piece i tried a few days ago:

    [​IMG]
    but before i could do that i needed to do the N249 bypass so i ordered some black pipes and 2 T pieces (just incase something breaks!) and followed Welly's 'How to' guide which was really good (thanks mate!)! Although i did bust my N112 nipple but thats what the 2nd T piece was for! :) Anyways after a good soaking in the rain and some hard work later, i managed to pop on my coilpacks and adaptors:

    [​IMG]

    Happy chappy me! I went for a test drive and as the car is still on its original DV it still feels a tad sharper and abit more happy! The pipe going to the FPR was shot so i changed that too and feels alot smoother! Also got my brembo's fitted! they surely do work (Nilz can confirm that lol)

    [​IMG]

    ANDDDD it doesnt stop there! Also have my Badger 5 that come through the post with my 007p with a yellow spring! :) Getting that fitted on the 11th by bill and cant wait!! Feel like a kid waiting to go toys R us!!

    Big thanks to Badger 5 for the quick delivery and Awesome GTI for hooking me up with the DV! Also Welly for the guide he put up a while back, worked a treat! More from me when i have my B5 fitted :)

    Nice progress. I like what you have done so far.
    I am after the Brembo upgrade, yours look in mint condition.
    You won't be disappointed with the Badger 5 TIP. I recently had it done and immedaitely noticed the difference straight away.

    Gops is there alot of differance in the brembos for stock then stupid question but iv already got the LCR brembos running with standered LCR discs and pads and dot 5.1 brake fluid and they dont seem any better than standered to me lol would it be a case of new ds2500 pads and brembo max discs and all that would change

    Haha dani! Yeah defo recommend the brakes, Really make the best difference. Fills me alot more confidence that it'll stop better and more consistently than before as The DS2500 pads are very good for that. on standard discs will be as good as the discs don't really make much of the difference but I'd say get some DS2500 pads S3gazz as you'll see the biggest difference that way. Best safety mod I've done!
