    I've had door cards and boot trim off today in an attempt to fix the ****ty sounds coming from my driver's side front door Bose speaker!! It's driving me insane. Replaced the amp - didn't make a blind bit of difference. Swapped the speaker around with the other side and hey presto - the speaker is buggered! Going to get a replacement and all will be happy again.

    Job for tomorrow - fix my rear windscreen wiper washer jet with the repair kit I got and to give her a much needed wash and hoover.

    Here's a random picture of my door....

    Finally cleaned the car has been a while with the bad weather and little jobs I've been doing. Done a bit of a fix on my door blade too as it was peeling off I will replace it but figured a free repair attempt won't hurt for now! Had to drill the end screw out coated the plastic in glue and clamped it down then replaced the screw with a long one that bites into the blade it appears to worked for now.

    Break it, seems like the trend these days, the more that's broken/scrapped, the rarer they become. :jump:

    I ended realising I need a lot more power after going for a spirited drive with some mates :)

    Experienced a full motion F1 simulator as well which was totally cool and so much fun! Definitely recommend it if you're into your Forza/Grand Turismo

    So today, I put the OEM 17" Avus rims on, so I can send my 18s for a rerefurb, only need 2 doing. I've also ordered a poly steering rack mount and about to order some new balljoints ready for my complete lower front end rebuild. The car doesn't actually need this doing, but I got everything cheap, so might aswell. :)

    i need to do something with my wheels soon, they either need a full refurb or i need a new set. for the price of a refurb it doesn't seem worth it on a set of reps

    Why not, you effectively have new wheels then, but the fact they are replicas are playing with your mind!?

    Yeah, but the R35, 360 and 996 Turbo (GT2?) are in a bit of a different league to the S3. And is that a 599?

    I repaired the passenger side (left side) rear boot touch pad switch today. It's been broken for ages and I finally ordered the bits and fixed it! The thing is I'm so used to using the other side (and I'm right handed anyway) that I'll probably still keep using the old one unless I make a conscious effort to use the left!!
