    So I think its best I start a thread as a have a few things planned for the car.

    Some of the things I have planned include:
    - New Front Tyres (done, purchased Michelin Pilot Sport 4's).
    - FL Flat Bottom Steering Wheel (purchased).
    - New Headunit w/ Apple Car Play/ (purchased).
    - Paint Correction (will probably be posted on detailing subforum).
    - Engine Bay Detail (same as above).
    - 8V Rear Wiper.
    - Black Optics Pack Upgrade.
    - Wheel Refurbishment.
    - New bits to keep the car looking fresh (caliper retaining springs w/ S3 logo, new plates, repaint calipers and various other bits).
    - Maybe remap it.

    Will probably add things along the way.

    FL flat bottom steering wheel arrived today, will hopefully get it fitted later on. Also had the headunit and install kit arrive! Excuse the rabbit munching on the box.

    My car is going in for haldex oil change and cambelt is being done so they said they’d get it fitted whilst it was in so just out of ease I suppose. Plus I’m not sure how much I trust myself to do it properly.

    It’s a Sony unit and there’s a lot of adapters to get it to work with the Bose speakers and steering wheel, so I thought I’d save myself the headache since there’s no instructions with it

    Ok that makes sense. I put pumkin android straight forward but I had instructions. Just check when they fit that all speakers work correctly there is an issue with some Bose systems speakers.

    If you check you unit if it can take reverse cam. Get one ask them to just run wires and you could possibly sort. I did all my mods my self

    Another quick little mod today, 8V rear wiper. Took a fair bit of effort to get the old wiper off.

    Surprised you didn’t just do a wiper delete!

    I’m really not a fan of wiper deletes, especially on a hatchback as the rear gets dirty quite fast, plus I don’t really like how it looks and I like to be able to see clearly our the rear window!

    I did a thing, rather than the mechanic struggling with it I decided to take it upon myself to install it and other than the sound not working at first it’s all installed and works lovely now. Very pleased.

    A few photos just for you pal, Apple CarPlay is a real game changer, really does future proof the car.

    Got the original head-unit still just incase I decide to sell in the future

    This may seem like a backwards step, but I decided to go back to the original stereo head unit. Reason being, I wasn't feeling the look of the aftermarket head unit. Plus, I was experiencing annoyances such as alternator whine and a few glitches with the unit.

    I'm not going to stick with this head unit though, I have a new plan. From what I can tell the RNS-E units are pretty much plug and play, as I have the Symphony III Bose system it should be relatively straightforward (please let me know if this is not the case). I'm looking to source a RNS-E unit and probably add wireless AUX-IN to keep the car feeling up to date.

    Fitted my FL rear lights today, tested them out and realised the reversing light was red... Checked the boxes and the company sent one RHD light and one LHD light so I had two fog lights and no reverse light!
