    I thought it would be a good idea to see what everybody is getting up to as the days pass. So I will start with what I got up to:

    Removed grill and painted the chrome surround black on my A3 1.8T

    Moved mine out the garage to get the lawn mower out, then put it back. That's about the limit to my modding these days :(

    Must find time to fit the oil cooler though :banghead:

    went for a drive came back and went to fit the coolant sensor... you can see where this is going after years of telling people to let there care cool down before fiddling with the coolant, luckily it wasn't that hot but don't half taste grim. as a result i now have a spotted s2k filter :/

    [​IMG]

    also fitted the wiring for a new oil pressure gauge as i thought the old one wasn't working, turned out its my car :/ it jumps about a ridiculous amount from 40 - 120 or on the new gauge its a bit more refined and goes 40 - 80 ish is this normal or not?

    Went for yellow mate, look good even if just a slighly lighter colour yellow than the car.

    Only thing i needed to do was open up the two holes at the bottom of the bar as they were too small for the old bolt to go back through.
