    That’s one thing about Jap imports. They are almost like new. No salt on the roads over there and people “enthusiasts” keep them immaculate. A friend of mine imported a RX7 couple years ago, wasn’t a single blemish on the paintwork. The rubber hoses, etc looked like new. Even though it was a 20+ year old car.

    Good luck with the car when you get it, keep us updated

    Ooooh love a bit of yellow! I was at the Audi garage today picking up some bolts for the Noggy 8L and there was a customer’s bright yellow S1 parked out the front. That looked great too. Keep us posted on the updates!

    The evolution of my main 8l over the past 10 years ( a proper repaint is long overdue, the last pic the bumper has a slight dent next to the licence plate due to someone reversing into my car at that spot)

    My first post and here is a pic of my S3 on Bilstein B8's, Eibach springs and Forge Motorsport rear control arms.
    I have gained so much insight over the last few years from this forum and I couldn't have got this setup without everyone's helpful threads.
    So hello and thank you

    Anyone got any tips of how to rectify the black plastic boot strip coming away from the rear bumper?

    I have taken it off and replaced the velcro tabs to ensure it is fixing down properly but I think the plastic has warped over the years.

    Do I have to buy a new or unwarped plastic strip?? Screenshot_20210115_152637.jpg

    Is the black plastic trim pulled out of the way of the boot rubber? I'd a problem with mine and even after replacing the velcro on it it still sat up a bit.
    I pulled the plastic forward and pushed the rubber on back and it's fine now.

    Thanks, I will have another go at lining it up. I may need to get a replacement from the Audi Tradition site if it's too warped.

    Once you have it all lined up put something heavy on it to try take the curve out of it if it's still out of shape

    It's a bit better but still has gaps. I think I'm just going to get a replacement strip and cap from the tradition site. Will respray the rear bumper anyhow. Trying to keep/get these cars mint is perpetual agony lol.

    Wow, car looks amazing. Where did you get the ceramic coating applied and was it very expensive?
