As per the title, what did you buy for your car this month?

- New air fresheners (I like it when my car smells good)
- New CD case to hold random CD's that I never use
- First Aid kit and an emergency hammer thing
- Bluetooth OBD connector (lost my old one) so I can use my Torque app
- Plenty of vPower

I've only just bought my S3 so I'm sure I will have a few bits to add here and there.

Nice :) good thread too! Air fresheners are absolutely critical. I bought some Poorboys air fresheners recently and they were a huge let down.

I have bought new front arms, new wheels, caps and stickers for the wheels, pressed plates, surrounds for pressed plates, sub and enclosure, new scuttle, tyre dressing applicators, and some blue gloves (and diesel, of course).
 
Wish i could buy car cleaning products my body work is really poor man!
In fairness its been last 6 weeks for me but recently all fitted!!
 
brand new dual mass fly
brand new 3 piece clutch
2x new front wheel bearings
B5 TIP (billet type)


and then decided to break it, still the TIP and DMF/Clutch will be going on my mk2 golf
 
SFS Oversize TIP
S2000 filter
SAI delete bits
Catch Can and pipework
Vacuum hose for N249 bypass
 
What size bung did you use Daz?

I recently purchased:
Clutch kit
DMF
IE rods
550 bosch injectors
Plus a load of smaller bits

Hoping to order a BBT K04 hybrid this month
 
A spare ABS pump (thanks jason ^^) in case a fault I've been getting shows it's face again.

Many many things, but most importantly... This turned up yesterday:


BBT K300 + super size TIP :jump: buzzing to get it all fitted and mapped up!

My car is currently sat on axle stands turboless (among other bits) ready and waiting for this bad boy... I'm at a wedding this weekend but I hope to have her all back in one piece next weekend, but it's gonna be tight!

Then up to bills for mapping on September 11th. . . Can't ****** wait, just want it now NOW NOOOOOOOOWWWW!
 
Love mine, it's a 2014 five with the 27.5 inch wheel, neon green paint and upgraded front and rear shocks with Fox CTD gear

Nice work Andrew... I ride an olskool orange jump frame surrounded by loads of cool bit. Also LOVE it!



The frames probs about 10 years (or more) older than your's... Still goin strong tho, which is a massive credit considering the way I ride it! lol
 
Not sure if this counts, but I bought the 3M headlight restoration kit for the S3. Results have been pretty good!

I'll not show mine, don't want you all getting envious
 
Don't wanna **** on your fire Joey but Dan told me he wasn't taking any more orders as he's going away at the end of the month... If there is still a chance you'll have to give him a shout V soon!

Thanks for the heads up, will try and get in touch with him soon to see whats happening. I'm not gonna lie, I'm slightly jealous you've already got one! You must be buzzing with anticipation to get it all done!

I bought some of these as winter wheels, I was so surprised how good it looks on them and even more surprised how much better it handles on them that I ended up selling my 18's!
my dad had 18's as standard on his mondeo he changed to 17's after two punctures from potholes that cost him 500 quid. He reckons it rides better now and hasn't had anymore puntures
 
Spent far too much on the car lately, timing belt and pump, new conti tyres, new head unit and speakers, new door cards and climate control. New window mechanism next
 
Turbo and all new gaskets nuts and bolts to go with it
Oil
brake fluid
gearbox oil
powerflex dogbone mount bush
Gunson Eezibleed
and halfords professional socket set

(and i use to ride a Orange patriot)
 
I ride a baby Orange. Only a G2 :(
