    i reckon blacking out that surround makes the car look heaps sleeker!

    Yes, it goes well with the colour, some bigger rims would look nice too, in black of course.

    Clean picture of the interior
    which is now dirty again

    Then it was time for a worthy mod fitting a FMIC :grin:


    With all the info on this forum it was a breeze:rock::rock:


    it took me pretty much the whole of Saturday to get it the way I wanted it though!

    Sorry I didn’t take any pictures of the whole process but this is what it looks like.

    will just need to maybe center it a bit more!:yes::yes:


    [​IMG]



    Then managed to get my hands on an intake


    [​IMG]

    Must say a huge thanks to miggz aka FSU developments for going out his way! Legend:rockwoot::rockwoot:


    After taking my time to get the OEM tip off here is a comparison


    [​IMG]


    Then it was down to fitment all I can say it was a b@tch to fit damn.. Still need to trim more as the pipe kinks slightly.


    [​IMG]


    How it looks currently

    [​IMG]



    Also found a set of SEAT SPORT calipers from an IBIZA cupra:yahoo::yahoo:
    Extremely difficult to find as Seat left South Africa a few years ago :bye::bye:


    They need a bit of TLC but that's what makes it more awesome.. I love doing stuff like this


    So pretty much how I got them


    [​IMG]


    Will be redoing them soon


    Also loaded stage 2 Revlimit software and loving it ! will dyno soon


    Then just some random pictures from a club event held not too long ago
    To raise funds for our furry friends

    must say my dog was in her element haha onto some pictures I snapped

    Looking real good there buddy, get some stickers off eBay for your climate control buttons, they are a really good match and make a big difference.

    I'm so jealous :) your car is immaculate, mines usually got oily handprints all over it.

    Although I do prefer the two tone seats leather / suede (or whatever) compared to the full leather - do they all have that extra bit of adjustment for the bottom part of the seat?

    Lovely looking example you have there :)

    I was admiring your engine bay and coolant bottle!! ha ha, mine is yellowing and yours looks pristine!

    I noticed your washer jet bottle has a black cap, mine is blue but I prefer your black one. Did you change yours or has it always been black? Just wondering if its something I can do (without painting, before anyone suggests!).

    Thanks.

    Basically I have 2 maps
    Daily map 1.6bar
    Race map 2.0bar ..Car is mapped for 2.4 bar but not keen to run that high

    You can run that boost as long as you have the supporting mods to go with it.

    You'll be winning there I'm afraid... I only just about managed to wash mine this weekend for the first time since ADI in October last year which is where that photo I posted is from...

    This is what she looked like...
    20170219_094751.jpg

    ...but chucked a bucket over her...
    20170219_140401_HDR.jpg

    Will do until the spring detail ;)

    My A2 daily is much much worse than this mind and is due a wash this weekend... fairly sure the last time I washed her was back in August :)
