    You should chrome your roof rails. I think I read somewhere that you can use Nitromors on them to remove the plastic coating and take them back to shiny metal. I will see if I can find where I read this...

    Suprised as the Audi will weight more than a mk4 Golf and it's a Quattro? But Golf GTI 1.8t are ***** standard they NEED modd'ing!

    Lovely looking Audi mate keep the pictures coming. Remap next?????:yes:

    if its staying it will get a re-map and mabey a ko4 turbo. next on the list is doing the 312mm front brakes and mabey a single mass flywheel before a re-map.

    Your Avant should have the ko3s? So a re map would give you a good 215/220bhp. Try R Tech got them to map my Golf and it's transformed the perfomance. Not heard a bad thing about them plus one off the cheapest tuners.

    Not much of an update but:

    Spent a few hours cleaning the inside today, cleaning the leather and then moisturising the leather. Going to do this quite a few times over the next weeks to try and make it look its best.. And it would be rude not to take some more pics:

    A4s and passats in this platform had the K03 turbo and its good for about 200BHP depending on mapper. Some recon to get 211 from a 180BHP car and only 190 Odd for a 150, strange when they are the same engine with the same components except the TQS has slightly higher boost to up its BHP to 180

    Yeah... saw it up for sale this morning on the Edition forum.

    Exactly what I want, but just the wrong time. Grrrrr!

    Hang on to it for a couple of months while I get the M3 out of my system? :laugh:
