    Just thought I would say hello. I picked up a silver '00 1.8T sport saloon at the begining of the year for the bargain price of £1700, full leather with FASH (and already remaped after hooking a boost gauge up .. bonus). I have been sorting a few bits out as it needed a little tlc. So far:
    - fitted new disks all round with red stuff pads,
    - replaced the rear bearings'
    - 710N valve,
    - new interior mats,
    - 18 RS4 wheels to replace the horrible 16" fox items,
    - stewart warner boost gauge in a podi gauge holder (from Canada)
    A good clean and clay, fresh mot and will be carring out a full service this weekend.(pics soon)
    Next job is to fit my becker head unit and replace the rear speakers. Then a little lowering will be in order.
    This car will be built on a budget due to impending house purchase but I have a few plans for the future.
    I know there's a newbie section but tbh i dont use any other section than the B5 forum.
    Cheers
    Steve

    most becker kit is really nice. i love the basic/sensible look of their headunits rather than the garish **** people like to stick in cars nowadays

    yeah its a great unit, built in handsfree too which is a bonus.
    Does anyone know which iso lead adaptor I need? it has amplified rear speakers but I was planing on running some new cables to the rear speakers.

    I'll try and get some pics up soon.
