    Perfect :)

    You will need to find an authorised services provider, such as an Audi dealer or myself, in order to have everything activated. If you are in or around London I can assist. I also have a coding partners in Manchester and Leicester.

    Just had my cruise control coded. Still not working. Now has a code for cruise control mechanical fault.

    I never thought I'd say this but I'm angry with my car.

    Will do. Apparently there are 4 different kits that you can get. Damn TPS might have screwed me over.

    @TimWills28 I love the black grill surround conversion. How would I do it? I saw from your image that you protected the areas around the surround but how did you avoid getting paint on the grill itself?

    I was a bit raw tbh mate. My grill is already gloss black I didn’t mind the little overspray and it couldn’t honestly be seen when looked at from up close, unless you were honestly looking for it with finger touches

    Okay sweet and how much paint did you buy? I'm thinking of getting two 500ml cans of black paint and one 500ml can of grey bodyshop primer. I'm also doing the de-badge mod that you did :)

    Just bought the one can mate. I did it outdoors with about 4/5 layers of spray...

    I didn’t use a primer and considering the stone chips i knew it would face I only had to touch it up after 10 months! De badge mod is nice .. slick and smooth .. try the dental floss method first mate as you could scratch your car if you’re heavy handed ..

    Thanks for all your help, I went with two cans of the exact paint you used and a few dust sheets :) Also bought the stuff for the badge removal so I'll be quite busy this weekend!

    @TimWills28 How do you remove excess paint? It soaked through the tape so I now have some black paint on my white bumper :'(

    I just used a cloth and some acetone... I didn’t spray close to bumper so it wasn’t that heavy

    Hi All,

    Just to let you all know that you won't have to see my you've been framed style DIY videos on here anymore lol
    I am collecting my new car on Friday and unfortunately it isn't an Audi...hence why I stopped additions and videos slowed down...
    Its a 2017 mercedes a class a250 amg line and just fancied breaking away from audi for a bit and getting into a different cockpit!
    I'll be making a video shortly about reasons why if you're interested and if you don't know about my youtube channel its here ... https://goo.gl/MBVvsd
    I'll still check this wonderful, active forum from time to time and I still receive notifications when inboxed...
    Hopefully the merc and a class forums are just as interesting as this one!
    Thanks for watching and ill see you soon! :)

    That's a shame to hear, won't be getting to see your guides. But I'm sure you will enjoy the new merc !! Sounds nice, post a pic on here once you've got it mate.
    Thanks for your videos and the advice on both here and on the YT channel.
    All the best man !!
