    Thanks for all your comments guys :arco:- im glad you think i made a good choice.

    S3 Dave - been doing lots of odds and sods before any power mods that i have planned.

    So far ive replaced the inner driveshaft boot,
    Fitted a KnN Panel filter,
    Fitted a custom straight through Rs4 tailpipe,
    Fitted the DIY I/C sprayer kit which i must say is super cool but doesnt add any massive gains as expected. (will post up some pics/videos),
    Fitted new plugs, coils (recall) , Fuel filter , changed oil and Filter ( * SuperKarl * Havent got round to doing the Sump pick up yet :/ is also on the list tho :D )
    I plan to fit new fuel rail hoses as there starting to perish, ive also got the parts to do the haldex filter and oil but looks like a pain in the backside of a job....
    I recently carried out full compression test and Borescope of which ill also try and get up some pics.
    Also repaired the split vacuum pipe tonight that i just taped up when i first got the car :p !
    I think thats about it so far, so now its all ready for its Remap Tommorrow :D !

    I agree with the grill wrap Ruhbarb4, :) ill have good sit down at some point and think over what other cosmetic mods id like to look into, id still like to try and be more unique but the wrap does look smart :).

    * SuperKarl - The Cupra splitter is a defo on the list too :) got to get some more funds first after the map etc... Please inform me about the aero wipers ?? ...

    Thanks for all your comments guys :)

    I got a clay bar kit megs one not used it yet, I may have a go the weekend if the weather holds up it really looks worth it looking at those pics. Brake upgrade can be very expensive I'm looking to upgrade early next year just saving up a bit first. :yum:

    Car looks very nice mate, welcome to the site, as you can see the modding begins pretty quickly!!

    Gops, you can get retrofit aero blades off Ebay, Euro Car Parts sell them as well....they fit onto your current arms, however, you can do the mod to replace the whole arm as well.

    I believe the sizes you need are 19 and 21 inch.
