    The B5 RS4 spoiler can't be removed from the tailgate, without breaking it.

    I didn't mate.. I didn't risk the bleed valve as it kept confusing the ECU with the MAF values not adding up! Didn't want to risk frying the engine.

    The Chipped UK map only peaks at 0.9 bar so it wouldn't have been much of a contest.

    And the rear quarter lacquer peel is all sorted too:

    [​IMG]





    Went to polish the wheels up today. Well peeved off. Its all youre fault Damo!!!!!
    LOL im only kidding you matey even though you recommended the place LOL.
    I werent happy with them the first time they come back as the faces felt like sandpaper, so i complained and they picked them up to redo them.
    I payed extra to have the insides done and TBH i dont even think theyve been touched. I feel well and truly mugged off TBH, but even so im not going to complain again. If he cant sort them twice, is there a point him trying again. No i dont think so....
    Heres the pics:

    Shame the wheel guys didn't deliver.

    However, the tailgate looks great!

    No I really dont know what to do with the wheels as yet.
    Boot was a costly mod but for the amount of work that went into it im more than happy to pay it.

    £200 for that? They are shocking. They've not even taken the old weights off! Robbing gits. I'd be wanting my money back to be honest... or at least some of it. I pay £160 a set to have them blasted, dipped, etched and powder-coated and they do a SUPERB job - and that's for a set of BBS splits! £140 for one-piece rims.

    But... the tailgate work has turned out spectacularly... I'm very impressed with that!
