    I am thinking along the lines of exhaust system, boot lip spoiler and then some minor audio upgrades I have done the head unit I just want to replace the speakers and maybe a sub and amp.

    Only small mods so far for me.

    You will have to lower it a fair bit even if just for some snaps as I know you dont like too low.


    Plans for my car are front end respray, RS4 rear brakes so far. Will see how the dosh is.

    RS6 Alloy wheels, Front Bumper respray, passenger wing mirror respray and replace the two door trim strips on the passenger side. Gonna get it mopped too to take out some scratches and see if the smart dent repair man can repair a ding in the passenger side rear door. Possibly an Amp and sub in the boot to help the new HU I fit recently.

    - Remap
    - A service
    - Bilstein shocks and Eibach springs
    - New exhaust
    - New wheels

    I'm just content that my car is road legal again tbqfh. :)

    I have washed it, I only recently bought it, and its been too cold to have a really good go at Valeting and polishing etc. Still needs a good old polish with a mop :)

    basically tidy it up and get it running right.

    fit the cam chain tensioner i've had for 6 months, respray the front bumper, possibly new cat & air mass meter, good service & tune (it's only a 1.8NA so performance isn't an issue, but it is extremely hesitant when pulling away, up until 2k+rpm).

    would like to finish it off with a nice set of blue 1/2 alcantara s4 seats, if i can find any!

    Hopefully get to keep the car, then its refit the rebuilt Outlaw turbo ( if i can afford it)

    Probably should fit the loom,oil feed pipe,and replace the burn pipes first tho
