Replace more under bonnet caps
Find/remove more unnesecerry parts
Wheel arch vents and brake cooling mods

"Projects" are never complete but I think mine is now at the stage where future mods are debatable as to whether or not they're actually worth doing so I'm calling it a built thread rather than build as theirs not much more to do (if I do anything... probably will I'm addicted).

Comments, suggestions, questions or anything else about the car are more than welcome but please don't thread hijack and ask about your own, if you would like help/advice drop me a private message (more than happy to help but will be ignoring thread comments of "I'm thinking of doing a b7 conversion...", "I want a bigger turbo...", ask about mods I've done just be mindful this is my build thread not yours).

Knew I'd miss something; it's got B5 RS4 engine mounts and a 2.5tdi snub mount as well.
What FMIC did you go for? Looking for a decent one for my B7 1.9tdi
Cheers, just a universal Toyosports one... that Darkside sprayed their logo on when they were working on my car haha true story, only option is to get a universal one to work or get one from Darkside for these and it's triple the price for a Darkside one, I've got a bigger side mount with Darkside piping which can be made to fit if that's any good to you, just drop us a pm if your interested and I'll send pics and info.

Wicked dude. You've put in a silly amount of effort on your B6. Looks ace. Those bucket seats though..:respekt:

Minor (unnoticable) upgrade got an RS4 alloy bonnet on now, could just be placebo but it definitely feels more nimble and better braking, got me wanting more lightweight bits now :playful:
Ah, definitely show pics when you can!

Haha, tell me about it..constantly thinking of ways to make myheavy a*se cabby lighter!

Powerflex polybushes and 034 gearbox mount turned up today to hopefully tighten things up.

Yes Jake, nice upgrades. Should completely transform the drive. Are you on Instagram by the way?

Cheers, should be on next weekend so I'll report back how they go. Unfortunately I'm a bit behind the times and haven't currently got an Instagram but if I get one in future I'll stick up a link :happy:
Looking forward to it. Haha it's all good. These days everyone shows off their updates via Instagram also. It's worth doing when you can.
Bit of a late update but the mounts and bushes have definitely tightened things up, quite surprised with how much difference it's made to be honest but no doubt the old bushings were shot, overall loving driving the car although no change their.

Took some new photo's as it was a nice day so the car got a bath (also thought the old photo's were no longer displaying although today they seem to work!?).








Car is pretty much the way I want it... and I'm considering selling... mind changes like the weather though so may still be a keeper, got a lot of memories with this hunk of metal.
Easy Jake,

Good to hear mate. You've had the car ages and have referred to your instruction for a lot of help over the years!

Looking good..but yeah its tempting to sell.

Personally, I've invested far too much for me to sell. Plus the Golf R I want is far to expensive so im keeping my car for some years until I can afford the next project.

Picked up this:


Doesn't look much but it's 2.3 turbo, 260bhp and four wheel drive all as standard.

Did love the Audi but I live in the centre of a city where next year it wouldn't meet a new emissions law so would cost £8 a day if I wanted to go anywhere plus I walk to work now so the indicated new 18mpg isn't too much of a problem haha.

Already done some minor mods but trying my best to not go too mad as I quite like the sleeper look.

That's awesome Jake! If you're going for the sleeper look, you are truly going to hurt some egos!

i reckon with decat, intercooler and a map, you're gonna blow by some road cars haha.

..Yes here in London its the same. Literally bwing raped for £15 per day. Luckily, my car is petrol and just past the date of Petrol vehicles in the ULEZ (Ultra low emmision zone)

Let me know how it goes.

Also, c'mon, get insta so I can follow you haha.
