    audi a3 boot lid doesnt close

    Have a quick search, there's many a thread on this particular issue - i have the same thing, and am yet to rectify - doing other jobs...

    I LOVE the orange in your bay, Prawn... Whats the best way to paint the rocker cover and all that the way that you have it? Powder coat or will some high temp spray paint do the trick? Also, just ordered a couple of meters of 4mm Vac hose from JS performance along with the reducer i need for...

    Benjamins S2000 air filter mod.

    Well i think that site and the ECP site always show that nasty green one in the picture, but mine arrived and was a red and black one - reading through, people have had a few variations, so i guess it's luck of the draw...
