    It's been a while since i've started a thread but here goes.

    I've been keeping my self busy recently and playing bit of catch up with westy

    But first i went on my hols.

    [​IMG]



    When Westy bought a Milltek i couldn't resist anymore and purchased one.

    followed by the welly cooler

    Then whilst on my hold i spotted this on flee bay and had to have it because i've been looking for a sportier steering wheel.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then i wanted to fit a Liquid Gauge but didn't want to lost my manual boost gauge so i went for the pillar mount option and fitted a oil temp gauge at the same time.

    [​IMG]

    took a bit of time out with my car and started helping big cheese with his little project.....

    [​IMG]

    it's currently having a cage fitted so back to mine, i wanted to fit the liquid gauge the same way as tuffty has as i like the idea of having the the ODB port free for vaginal communication.

    so i set on my way and here are the results many thanks to big cheese for the wiring he knows his way round cables...

    I forgot to mention

    i haven't been using my car for 2 months it's been parking in my garage.

    Anyway just before i went on holiday i thought i'd take it for a spin as i was reversing out down the dropped kerb i heard a distinct metallic twang. whilst out on my drive the noise from the rear was very loud so i went straight home to find this.

    [​IMG]


    Many Thanks to S3 JOHN for sorting me out with these.

    [​IMG]


    also my passenger window motor died as well....

    when i got back from my hols i had a flat battery....

    its ok matey. i used photoshop with your two pictures and managed the read the writing. and figured it out. once i did it i then got them sent to me from Jim at race diagnostics.

    I use my revo box to disable the ECU at night i forgot to switch the switch, plugged the box in and the liquid gauge start flash. for a moment i thought i fubard it... "mental note flick the switch"

    but all is ok.

    Edit : can't spell

    Good work matey, I'm jealous of the stack gauges, liquid, and wheel. It must now be time to do your engine :eyebrows:

    The wheel is off of a B6 A4 of some kind according to the part number on it, which is why the airbag was a direct swap. Not seen this wheel before so I assume it was an option for one of the sportier models :think:

    Part number is 8E0 419 091 G

    They seem to be rare as **** so you'll struggle to find 2nd hand ones.

    If its the one i was going to buy them the seller told me it was from a a3/s3. Havent you seen the companys that are on ebay that offer to alter and retrim your standard wheels for around £150?

    It's got an OEM part number on the wheel which is apparently from a B6 A4 but all B6 wheels I've seen don't look like that!

    It may be from a a4 then westy but its defo nott left the factory like that, its been retrimmed and modified to look like that. When im on my laptop ill post the ebay links and sellers up where you send yor wheel off to have it trimmed like tams is.

    I want a smaller wheel as the OEM one is a bit too big. I'm not fussed about the airbag as it's hit an miss as to whether it'll actually go off in an accident anyway!
