    Am definitely sure it's not the one with the cut out as I have seen them online. Mine has been cut with a hack saw up to the honeycomb bit and it looks nasty if you look closely! For some reason my bike rack constantly grounds when am pulling out of petrol stations so I don't think it's the correct tow bar for the car.

    I like the idea of a removable one so I can take it off when not needed plus the car looks better. I don't suppose any of you guys know where I can order a rear valance with the tow bar cut out? cheers

    As far as I know its still open, the Revo map wasn't cheap but the difference in performance is night & day.

    Thanks for liking the thread, i've got many of my ideas from others on this forum, do you have your own build thread yet?

    it becomes addictive, i've spent in excess of £2k & thats without wheels, B14 GJR has been neglected a bit recently as ridiculously busy with work, but should have a quiet few months coming up, so she'll get some attention soon!

    I've got a few other things planned, so looking forward to getting on with those!

    Afternoon All,

    Unfortunately due to work commitments the Avant has been somewhat neglected over the past few months, however when the little red jets depart overseas at the end of this month I'll get back to it...

    So what's in store..

    Looking to fit some Gloss Black tips to my standard exhaust, don't really think its worth going full aftermarket exhaust on my 2.0TDi (re-mapped).

    Fit the interior footwell lighting kit i bought from Trups a while back. (Does anyone have a decent installation guide? (+Coding to switch them on, anyone got a VCDS near Lincoln, that could help me out?).

    Fit the LED Indicators & Reverse Bulbs (+Coding as required, anyone got a VCDS near Lincoln, that could help me out?)

    Colour code my rear callipers to match the Red S4's i've got fitted to the front, along with painting all the calliper guards.

    Look at integrated or aftermarket DAB Installations, can't bear the constant interference on Radio 5 or Talksport, (Any suggestions, don't want to pay the earth though!).

    Potentially paint the side blades gloss black to match the rest of the car.

    Make & Fit a short front plate holder to the RS4 Grille.

    Not to mention, a Full Interior/Exterior Valet...

    I think that should keep me busy enough!

    Just had a re-read through your build thread, epic car you've got, a lot of time & effort has gone into that!

    Ordered a new set of 3D Gel plates, just standard length for now to get rid of the issue with the water ingress with the rear plate, once my work quietens down & I'll manufacture a short length holder for the front, probably something similar to what you've done!

    Never did get the oil caps, but have just treated myself to a BlackVue DR650gw-2ch off the classifieds on here (Cheers xpoweruk), so looking forward to getting that fitted in the next few weeks, amongst a long list of things to do, once things quieten down at work.

    Hope all is well with you.

    Well its been a while, but eventually got around to completing some of the tasks above...

    - LED Indicators are fitted & look much better than the originals.
    - Rear calipers are now painted in Satin Black with Silver caliper guards.
    - 3D Gel plates fitted front & rear.

    Hopefully post some photo's up tomorrow.

    Morning,

    Sorry for the late reply, I'm just back from the Falkland Islands, I've had the joy of serving down the for the last three months with the RAF.

    Ax for the part no for the discs, I haven't got it to hand I'm afraid, I purchased them from the MTEC website.

    Evening mate, I'm an Av by trade, you? Its my first time down south in almost 19 years in, so can't complain. I'm currently back in the UK on compassionate leave, but due to fly back out at the end of the month for my last three weeks & handover etc...

    I rate the MTEC discs, although i have seen the occasional post of them chewing through pads, although seem fine with my EBC Redstuff all round at present.
