    I took a trip to the stealers in a brand new 8P3 tdi 140 BE (courtesy car) after getting a call to ask what was on the headlights because they couldnt get them to pass the pattern test.

    Had to rip my LaminX off. Gutted.

    Hence to say I now have my car back, new ball joint, new brake pad warning light cable and 12 months MOT!

    50miles of pure road rage, stressing out on the M25 doing ridiculous speeds because I was about to miss my exam at uni.

    P.S.

    Sorry for anyone I flashed to get out of my way.

    Fitted some new plugs, let my mate have a go in it as he has been blagging me for ages and its being sold soon.

    Misfire fixed so all good :) Checked it for fault codes and now I might clean it if I can motivate myself!

    Spent the day fixing up some wiring on the A3, so everything is now looking neat and tidy under the dash, not that anyone would be able to see it without taking the car apart but at least i dont see tons of repair wires hanging around near the CE module (from all the installs i have done)

    Also fixed the issue i was getting with the mirrors since i did the did the auto folding mod and figured out some new bits to do on the mirrors :ninja:

    And i bought a new toolbox for my installer tools for the boot...

    and about to start of some more dye work for bits in the car :)

    Fairly easy to fit, I found a guide online to get access to the gear box.

    Set it to the shortest throw as it's adjustable, makes the gear change very tight and firm.

    I like it and happy with the price :icon_thumright:

    Saw on a thread the other day to remove a3 grill it was 3 torx screws on the top and then you pull it of as it's clipped on. Not sure if it's the same on the s3 but worth a shot. Good luck.

    Actually managed to give the car a quick wash this evening, after the
    missus had finished running around in it all day. This hosepipe ban does my brain in! Rough calculations, I used 6 x 10 litre watering cans to pre rinse, then 4x 15 litre buckets for the wash stage, then another 4 watering cans to rinse off. That's 160 litres of water, which I think is about the same as leaving a hose running for about an hour and a half!

    LOL no, not yet. and as you can tell i am enjoying it! :p
    managed to get one of four carpets dyed and i am proud of the work... ran out of dye though so need to pick up some more tomorrow

    when you say tight and firm is that a good thing? as it sounds uncomfortable...
    also send that link to the guide my way please... all this talk of short shifters is making me want to do it on mine now.
