    Cheers.

    Got a pair of front wheel bearings to go on soon, wanna change the top mounts up front.
    Wheels are being freshened up soon to get them extra mint. And were just getting some quotes for a full respray. Want it minty mint, it's just a few stone chips that let the front end down, bar that it's mega straight, not a dent in sight. Got no plans on selling it with only 78k on it. Its a keeper so may aswell keep on top of jobs. It'll last forever.

    Just took my time with trimming the lower valance. . . looks good imo, we hated seeing twin pipes on every A3 and wanted something different.

    Just some upto date pics. No change really, still clean. . .
    I've just done a Hid conversion on it, much better at night now, just waiting for some Led replacement bulbs for the front fog lights and main beam bulbs.
    Then will post somemore pics.
    I've also replaced the sidelight and numberplate bulbs for Led replacements. Look alot better at night.

    While I'm off on 2 weeks holiday I've decided to get back on top of jobs on this.
    I've had front wheel bearings sat waiting to go on for ages.
    So over the last 2 days I've attacked the o/s.
    I've fitted new . . .
    Top mount bearings
    Top mounts
    Track rod ends
    Drop links
    Anti roll bar bushes
    Bottom arms
    Front wheel bearings
    Repainted inside of wheel arches, repainted brakes, and fitted some old 5mm spacers on the rear.

    I'll crack on with the otherside tomorrow, looks good, can't wait to drive it.
    It's in for tracking on Thursday. Should drive like brand new with this little spend on it.

    She's had this from 3 years old, I wanted her to sell it for a focus Rs or Evo 8 but she won't part with it.
    So get back on top of jobs on it, a full repaint to make it minty mint and a remap to make most of the miltek it is!
