Picked up a mediocre mk1 A7 in november as i always liked these cars ,with the view of tinkering around with it to my liking but as you can see its been neglected and i need to get back on track to finish it. But as i am still working through the lockdown ( busier than ever) i have not had the chance to spend any real time on this "mid life project" some good points and bad points Good full engine service and s-tronic oil / filter change done by myself shortly after purchase , I done latest mmi and maps update done shortly after purchase, Has tech pack with bigger screen than my mates full ebc redstuff discs and pads fitted by myself and cleaned up and sprayed calipers with simoniz vht paint. Bought obdeleven and got enabling some cool functions . Got stage 1 custom remap theoretically 300bhp and 600nm Got custom muffler delete with 4" tailpipes instead of original 3" Car is not a black edition but i have added some black badging and chrome deleted the window trims Bad Not fussed with the colour as used to black cars but vowed id never buy another black car as sick of meticulous polishing and stress of chips and dents sticking out like a sore thumb. I would have preffered daytona gray but on an overcast day my colour changes pretty dark Bose bass may need a wee upgrade. wheel tyre combo is pretty garbage has oe 21" rotors on big tyres so sits up quite high need to get wheels changed or refurbed with lower profile tyres and suspension drop to get the stance correct. Has no sunroof, tv , or reverse camera but has most other things and have added screen mirroring through a chromecast to mmi to watch tv that way if needed but found its not getting used anyway. Well apart from that its pretty much same as any other 3.0 v6 tdi CDUC with 0B5 gbox but thinking of a darkside developments gbox software upgrade to just sharpen up the box and gear changes a little. Have also just stripped the IMRC ( swirl flap) and related pipework for a decarbon and going to try running it without the flap see how it goes but will probably reinstate it to be honest and fit an oil catch to the breather to minimise oil /soot mix to gunk. will also seek to find out egr offset value or whatever to minimise its operation in system.
