    I want to know about both things...

    Tints: Where, how dark, and how much? :)

    Remap: What's new power (was it 130bhp before?), and does it make you smile when putting your foot down? haha

    Car looks great mate, really like that colour.

    As for things to do, as mentioned wheels, and lower (if not already on sport suspension, which I suspect it is) Oh, and lose the mudflaps, but that's just what i'd do, they don't particularly offend me.

    Though the same myself when uploading the piccys! Need to get some more..

    Also in the process of looking into this.. Replacing all my interior ones with LED's too....

    Thanks :)
    To answer your question, Tints are 20% (Thats they let 20% of light through, so quite dark) - They cost £175
    The remap has put me from about 130hp to 170! and yep, it sure does make me smile!
    I have some issues with the map at the min, as it did funny things with my fuel gauge, however i am in talks with the company about this.

    Thanks, comments added! Dual exhaust is high on my list of things to do next!

    I have been thinking about doing the A4 and 1.9TDi, i think that would look quite smart...
    What do people think about removing the rear wiper? I never use it...

    Not sure about black roof rails, i like the chrome.. haha

    Thanks evening!

    Personally I think it would look like a bog standard model without even a wiper fitted....!

    Removing the wiper was a big thing to do on 306's (my old car). I kinda like the minimal look, but at the same time would really miss it. I am always using mine in the wet as the back window gets covered. Does yours not? Maybe the mud flaps help! :)

    Glad you like the map despite the teething problems. And thanks for the tints info. I doubt i'd get that dark, but £175 isn't too bad a price.

    Debadging is really easy. It took me about 10minutes. Just use a hairdryer, but don't get it too warm as funky things may happen. Then i used an old credit style card to prise them off, and bob's your uncle.

    I just use my side mirrors, so the back one gets really dirty on mine, but it doesn't bother me.

    I do like the tints very dark, cant see into the car at all...

    I like the dark tints a lot, but just fear for the back bumper with mrs crazy88 behind the wheel at night! If it had parking sensors i'd be tempted to go darker. Did you get the fronts done at all?

    haha :whistle2:

    I know, but then that makes the whole thing a lot more expensive though doesn't it?! We'll see.

    Car looks great though, I am really liking it!
