    Thought it was about time I started a build thread. Had the car for 4 weeks now, covered 2600 miles in it and I am loving it. It is lovely to drive and pretty economical, I am getting mid 20's on a run and 20mpg running around which I can live with.

    Picked the car up from the dealers, it was delivered with the wrong colour interior. I had ordered the light grey but it came with black. I really wanted the light interior, but I was not prepared to wait for another car to be found so a little extra discount was sought.

    I collected the car unprepped as I had already got it booked in for a new car detail and for ceramic coating. So 24 hours after collecting the car I lost it whilst it was readied for me.

    Got a few plans for the car. Its booked into MTC on friday to be remapped, I cannot wait and have high expectations.

    I have plans for some new wheels and possibly an exhaust although I do quite like the stealthy quietness of the car so I might not.

    I've fitted an intake from Roc-Euro although the jury is out on it at the moment, it is quite loud sucking, whooshing and popping. I have also just received a set of front and rear EBC red's that I will get fitted tomorrow.

    Oh and have properly broken the screen so need to get a new one sorted...

    Anyway some pics of the car so far.

    Collection day.

    Off to the detailers to be ceramic coated.

    Various shots during the polishing and then the final product.

    Very nice!

    I love my RocEs. Loud with pops and bangs, just how l like it.

    EBC redstuff are great, and zero dust!

    I went APR Stage 1, total transformation.

    Are you going to put PPF on the front? :racer:

    Yes, I wanted the gearbox map as well but MRC have told me they cannot do my car :-(

    I am contemplating the exhaust and perhaps going to stage 2, not sure yet... But power is addictive so never say never

    Can't wait for the map Friday, its a 2 hours drive back down south and then I have a christening over the weekend down in Exeter so a decent run saturday from southampton.

    Jesus getting rid of the dust is a top priority. Driving me insane with the amount of dust that comes off the standard pads.

    Thats the question I asked when booking it in. My ECU is not supported. But I am hoping that when they have my car on friday they are going to tell me they can!!!

    Ah, I’m in Andover (when in the UK), so not far away.

    Regal Autosport are my go to guys for most things. They are Southampton based http://www.regalautosport.com/

    If you think the dust is bad on the OEM pads, wait till the squealing starts. Nightmare. I moved to the Redstuffs about 4K in.

    I know regal they stage 2'd my Golf R. Fancied going for a custom map this time. Although APR were my second choice.

    I lasted 1500 miles before ordering the Red's :) Do the stock pads squeal then?

    Andover, lovely part of the world, I am the other side of souhampton out towards whickam vineyards

    Took my S6 up to MRC for a stage 1 remap.

    Started off at 445ps and 601Nm and ended up 555ps and 795Nm

    Needless to say it drives very much differently. Very happy with the car, the mid range is mental. Fuel consumption went out the window on a drive to exeter at the weekend for a christening...

    Mate if you're thinking of a catback just go downpipes instead. It will cost about the same but sounds amazing and you'll pick up more power from it.

    It is driving me mad. They appear the right way up on my mac, if I load them directly into my browser but on here the orientation is wrong even when I flick them around in phot viewer...

    When I get 5 minutes I will sort them out!!!
