    Best method to cut small hole in back of glovebox?

    You could get creative with some delicate dremel and file work and a hot glue gun to make a flush fit socket yourself by bonding a female end usb cable to it and running the cable up to the HU. But it would take a lot of patience to get that hole just right and OEM looking.

    Best method to cut small hole in back of glovebox?

    $53 shipped :wtf: Exactly. Use the step drill carefully to open the hole up enough for the Barrel of the Bulkhead to fit through then once lined up the way you want drill a couple of small pilot holes for some small self tappers. Note that that bulkhead is essentially an adapter so once you've...

    engine cover mod

    You can easily modify it to give the same result as the pic but it will not longer be functional so you will need to source another one to modify or will have to source one later on if you ever want to put back to standard. Easiest and best looking is to get the TTS engine cover.

    CrypticS3 - An Audi misadventure

    Well today was a productive day. Picked up my new Wheel Bolts Lockers and Bolt Caps for fitting the Standard 18's to the car. Also picked up an obligatory Gecko for the S4. Then it was off to the wheel place to have the freshly refurbished 18's with Michelin CrossClimate+ fitted to the car...

    Rear wiper is fine. This was before I figured out how to get the wipers to sit up for washing the car. Just did it on the ignition and that time I'd had the rear wiper on :blush:

    other VAG cars

    You'll find that most of the other VAG cars actually take the S3 parts as upgrades as the S3 was essentially the class leader in the 2.0TFSI VAG range. As you are talking about compatible parts from other VAG group cars I will (possibly wrongly) assume that you are more interested in the...

    Car tax renewal

    No problem bud. If in doubt you can easily give them a call. DVLA are actually very helpful in my experience.

    CrypticS3 - An Audi misadventure

    Well, didn't expect these to arrive so quickly. Very happy with the supplier. Guess I better call my Wheel guy tomorrow :rapture: ---------- Probably because it was left to fall down the boards quite a way due to inactivity. If I decide to sell the Clutch Kit I'll drop you a message but...

    CrypticS3 - An Audi misadventure

    The plan was at the time of ordering the clutch to go Stage 2+ pretty quickly and take it from there, possibly TTE480. Unfortunately due to the change in circumstances this may not be happening as quickly as I'd have liked to so will have to build up to it as there are a lot of supporting mods...

    CrypticS3 - An Audi misadventure

    Yeah. Engine bay is a sore spot for me though as it's never on show it'll be one of the later things I tackle. With the clean bill of health from the MOT I have little reason to be in there right now so hopefully just forget about it for a wee while, ignorance is bliss :whistle2: Thanks The...
