    Its surprisingly easy to adjust the bumper,it supposedly can be done without removing the bumper,i had mine off anyway so did it then.
    If you look on the slam panel at the front you will notice two 18/20mm diameter holes,if you look down these holes you will see some t35 torx screws, you turn these to adjust the height of the bumper. If i remember correctly its clockwise to raise it and anti-clockwise to lower.you will need a relatively long series t35 torx driver tho to get to it.
    Even with removing the bumper and a brew in between it only took bout half hour to do,and makes it look a whole load better.
    Id seen so many a4's including mine with big bumper/bonnet gaps and just had to sort it out!

    Not today but yesterday:
    got the plastidip out and sprayed up the front grill to get rid of the horrible chrome surround and faded plastic and fitted the 18"BBs rep's
    to replace the horrible kerbed to f**k ones that it came with.
    fingers crossed will get the coilovers fitted next week and assuming all goes will with the plasti-dip on the front i will get rid of the chrome Window surrounds as well

    "What did you do to your B7 today"

    hhmm at the weekend, she got a quick clean following a few hundred miles of M1 road-crud, and i got under the car and twisted my exhaust brackets round to try and free up a mm or two of ground clearance (before i rip off the milltek!).

    and today she's in @ Jtech Automotive Ltd having a faulty headlight levelling sensor sorted.

    thats it for this week

    Finish came out pretty well TBH. though with it being a less than geart day in not-so-sunny Scotland it took Ages for it to cure right.
    will try get some pics up. big test will be how hard wearing it is or if it will fall apart come its first clean.

    and the vedict is in it looks pretty good when on. I sprayed it at the weekend, gave the grill a scrub let it dry and applyed.
    Doesnt seem to like my Grill that much and has started to peel. that said it comes away really easy literally just pulls off.M
    ay give it a 2nd bash this weekend but put some Plastic primer down primer down first see it will help it adhere a bit better to the plastic grill.

    ^^^^^ Sounds like a good day!!

    Today I got a mate to clear a TPMS error off my dash, so now i finally have my full DIS back and no annoying beeping!

    Plus I picked up a set off RNS-E removal keys, ready to clean the DVD laser at the weekend, and hopefully get my sat-nav working again.

    Happy days!

    aslong as no injuries then all's well.
    plus side you will get a new door amd the car will get some fresh paint / touch-ups done at her cost.
