    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!

    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
