    Aren't they all asleep at the moment? You'll probably get loads of replies tonight.

    Oh, I'm in Canberra, so close to Sydney. Well close for Australia anyway, it's about the same distance as London to Paris IIRC. But when I go to Sydney I often go up and back in the same day.

    Scotland is beautiful, but if you think Australia doesn't have amazing landscapes you must be blind! :beerchug:

    Wow, a fact?! I wouldn't say one is necessarily better than the other. Not too many places on earth like Uluru or the pinnacles. Not to mention kakadu, the Kimberley etc. Then there's lake eyre with or without water, or just the spectacular expanse of central Australia. Great Barrier Reef and the islands off Queensland. It's a pretty amazing and diverse landscape we have here.

    All of the continents have their own highlights, many unique to each.

    I'd say Switzerland has the best. But that might be just me saying that because I'm currently just outside the Swiss boarder in a hotel, waiting for the morning to come along, so I can blast round the alps again :D

    Sorry, just had to get that in there 😜

    no france is :D.. that might be me being slightly biased due to it being the fact my parents come from there :D

    S. lol croatia is nice, however not saying Australia isn't and i was talking about landscapes no the reefs of the coast :D we do have the best reef in the world... which Americans just drop a few bombs on lol.... and yes Australia has nice areas but not as much as the EU :D it still is a beautiful country though.. maybe not the people as much :D

    Did France yesterday :D I was pretty surprised with the mountain roads. Went up one, very smooth, loads of hare pin turns and it went through the mountain rock for some nice little tunnels. Beautiful views too. Loved it!

    Seb is good and has been around for ages, there's also Derek at European Autotech on the northern beaches, who's been around for at least the 10 years or so I've been into VAG stuff.

    Other names in Sydney that are known to do VAG stuff are Exoticars and City Performance Centre.

    do you want the DP cat and turbo back? or just the turbo back... you can get a non-resonated one from the UK for 330 pounds plus 140 pounds shipping so 470 pounds around 700$ not too bad.... in Australia your looking atleast 1.1 to 1.2 k's

    Sev: Im really not sure i dont mind doing the whole thing depending on cost and difference it will make? also there cracking down on loud exhausts now in sydney ive seen, so i guess i want to keep it as legal as possible seeing im still on green P's.
    so any help would be appreciated.
