    Made a couple of small changes.

    I have fitted that OMP steering wheel as I had it in the house and fancied seeing what it is like on the car. Is quite nice having a smaller steering wheel, will see if I still like it after a month. If I do I will get a Momo team 300 wheel and if not I will put the standard sport wheel back on. Some will also notice the boost gauge that I fitted the other week.

    There is another change in there too, anyone see it?


    I also got my dark wheels redone as they were all chipped, the guy did an awesome job.

    Just need to wait for a couple of new tyres to come from MyTyre now.


    While I was waiting I took a couple of pics of the car.

    I have 15mm spacers on the front now with longer bolts but have some bolt to hub ones on their way which I bought off a forum member.

    I also have a couple of new front door trims coming as they are a little ripply.


    Cheers.

    Yeah same here. Will change it to a momo team if I still want a smaller one, the omp one is just a tester since I had it off my old pug.

    I'm sure I read that if you remove the airbag then you may well run into problems with insurance as you are effectively removing a standard safety item. Might be worth considering. You don't want to find out after an accident that you have invalidated your insurance.

    I like the wheels but I'd put the steering wheel back and not just because of the air bag issue.

    the wheels and the boost gauge are tops but that steering wheel, no no no, it's just plain wrong. too chavtastic.

    i'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal labotomy, lol

    My dials were in the car as standard. The 1.8T quattro models came with them.

    Shortshift / Ally gearknob ?


    The steering wheel is nice, but not in a modern airbagged motor. Save it for when you get a Ur quattro :)

    Nope will give you all a clue, its on the door.

    The shifter has been on a while now, is the B&M one. Same with the Funk button next to the fog light switches.

    I was just going to say the handles, I changed mine some time ago as I was not in to the chrome thing.

    Just put a resitor 4ohm resitor in the plug that should turn it off just like my seats.

    My light did not come on at first but came on later on, it has a 2ohm resistor. I thought maybe the connection was not too great which resulted in the light but maybe I need a 4ohm one?
