    Had the car a week now and have done the following-
    Detailed, Clayed and machine polished.
    Window tints done, Dark rears and VERY light fronts so its not too much of a contrast.
    Interior lights upgarded to white LED's
    Rear number plate lights upgraded to White LED's
    OEM Centre Armrest ordered.....Gotta have one of them.
    Ambient light module for front orded from Dealers....Hopefully get time to fit this week.
    B5 Perch plates to be ordered tomorrow to get the front down slightly.....its annoying me, lol

    I got the rear Number plate LED's from E-Bay...but i got the complete new units with the 18LED's in it as i tried the cheaper bulbs but they through up the error on the dash, these ones are fine and look great at night.

    Did the interior ones from E-Bay aswell, looks LOADS better than the neasty looking yellow light inside....

    Cheers Guys....A guy that has always done my tints did it for me, cost £200 for the lot. There are cheaper places about but he is VERY good and uses good quality film, not cheap nasty stuff that discolors over time.

    Rears are 25% and the fronts are 40% i think......Its a very good contrast without being too dark and tacky.

    Nice! You could moon light at weekends doing the odd funeral service lol

    Have you considered the B5 spring perch mod to bring the front down slightly?

    I'm going with B5 perches and the Eibach 30mm kit. Only drops it 10mm on S-Line suspension.

    Get in touch with Damian (he's on this forum) from DPM Performance. Thats who I'll be going through anyway, he has sorted me out in the past when I got coilovers for my Mk4 Golf. Service is second to none.

    Very tidy car mate, it looks like the front bumper needs a little adjustment though :)

    Can you post some pics when you get these installed mate. I have done the perches but an extra 10mm all round would look cool.

    cheers
