    Well the car is back in the garage,after going into limp mode :(
    It came up with boost control regulator,so hopefully nothing major.

    On a plus note off to mj's tuesday to drop the rear seats off.Also on the hunt for some new wheels

    Fingers crossed you get it sorted mate.

    If I'd managed to pick up an A3 I'd be asking what you were doing with the old wheels. :)

    Cheers mate,me too
    Well while its in the garage it stops the misses going shopping in it ;)

    Wheels will be going up for sale,but i'm in no rush i still love them and think they work really well.
    I will just be having a little look now and again to see if anything catches my eye.
    Well i have had them for atleast 4 months so i must be due a change lol

    Black leather,red stitching will look awesome.

    Well i'm hopefully getting the car back saturday afternoon,from the faulty turbo issue.
    I'm also off to birmingham saturday morning for some cloaky parts i need for the next mod.
    And hopefully off to mj's the middle of next week for the rear seats.

    Fingers crossed it all go's to plan lol
