    Thanks guys :)

    Front spacers are 6mm, but i think, they can be ~10mm. Rear spacers are 16mm.
    Car lowest part to the ground is 55mm.

    Thanks for the comments Guys, Yes Edition38 is my local crew.
    The TT Dash works, the loom was from A3-S3-TT. Everything could work, just things like the heated seats didn't get wired up due me not really needing them too.

    Why change the steering wheel?

    Jo£ I last saw your motor at aitp I was behind you in the que, And I got to say its immaculate bro, bags of effort all round!! them pics are good but don't compare to seeing it in the flesh.
    I can see where Karl's comming from I think the momo let's the interior down. A nice OE retrimmed would look coo, But who am I to say.

    Looks good mate, I think the DRL's don't do the car any justice though and cheapen the entire look.
    Apart from them your car looks great!

    I like it. It's one of the only 8P front bumpers i've seen that seems to work with the rest of the 8L bodywork. :thumbsup:

    Cool pics, especially this one!

    What's up with your wing mirror in the first photo, looks tiny.
    ...Kind of remind me of Jeremy Beadle for some reason. ;)

    Thanks! :redface:
    The car is LHD so the right side mirror is smaller than the one on the drivers side.
    It should be the opposite way how you in the uk have it
