    A very small mod, painting these strut things bronze/gold....subtle but just a bit if detail, goes well with the green I reckon

    Looking great mate - you just need the National Trust to release a Coniston Green window sticker. Or bronze, to go with those radiator strut bars. :thumbs up:

    You'll curse me for asking this, but is that halogen light bar a few mm off-centre?:whistle2:

    What's next on the build plan pal?

    looking into a hardshell roof tent, waiting to hear back with some pics from a company...going to start going to peak district/north pennines/cheviots for some walking adventures so hopefully I get a roof tent for some full weekends out n about

    but otherwise a few bits need sorting, new door locks right round and ignition barrel all because the drivers lock spins round, round and around :rtfm:
    double din unit and a speaker upgrade eventually

    Now THAT is a high interest purchase mate. An expandable roof box you can sleep in?! Very cool. Keep us posted. Tricky part will be finding a dog friendly ladder!

    I
    We like a wee bit of the great outdoors too Matty Lad. I’ve got a roof box too pal, as you know (just have to unpack mine to pitch-up, lol). S3 (like your old one) is a 4x4 as well buster (do Eibach do a raising spring kit? That could be fun). Love this pic during an S3 assisted hike around Pen-y-Fan in the Brecon Beacons. Was HOT that day too (last summer) - first pint was taken in via osmosis at the end of 13 miles of extreme up and down. Lol. Planning the next one right now...
