    Be sad to sell the B6 1.9 TDI 130 Avant, but on the good side buy a B7 3.0 TDI Avant as woud like to try a quattro and still have reasonable running costs.

    Just don't know whether to sell it as it is or strip it back to full standard spec.

    Black the Diffuser on the rear bumper.
    Fit armrest
    Upgrade to full DIS (...a might be...)

    ...and if I move house then Springs & Shock upgrade - would like another 20mm lower.(driveway at my current house wont allow me :keule:)

    full colour DIS, any more info? pictures?

    For mine? Well, I have the new RS mirror caps in place (photos to follow...) but I'd still quite like the remap (1.9TDi 130 Quattro Sport)

    Other than that, I'll give it its yearly pass with the machine polish and keep it clean! Oh, wheels will be coming off soon and calipers/hubs repainted too.

    Jimmeh - find an S4 or a newer B7 - much more common option on those... probolem for me is that you can only buy them as part of the whole dash (about £550!) and to match the immobiliser, you CAN'T use a B7 (2.0TDI) or any of the petrol options... it's pretty easy for petrol owners as I think they were standard on S4's, so there's a few in the scrap-yards... I think this is on a B6 cabriolet, but you get the idea:

    Nutkin... I'm also replacing some of the cast iron guttering around my house, I think there's a 4m stretch of 4" going begging, so I reckon you could polish that up and swap out the exhaust too... no boxes, no cat... and with that much girth you'll be able to see the pistons (well... exhaust manifold at least ;) )....
