    Thanks Scott and Sandra :)

    Hopefully the DVLA won't keep me waiting too much longer!!

    Already on the lookout for some bits for it and I suspect it will be mapped very shortly after I take delivery.......!!

    Nice purchase. Just for reference. I posted my V5C for a reg change on a Wed, and it was done by Tuesday the following week. The letter didn't arrive until the wed, but just reg check your private reg online daily, and once the details are updated, you can stick your private reg on and drive/insure it! :)

    Thanks for the info :)

    Apparently it was sent off last week so I'm hopeful it will arrive back this week so I can collect it!!

    Private reg isn't mine; it was what was on the car. Apparently its worth £50k!! - 77 EE......Nuts!

    The DVLA have to issue a brand new plate as it went straight onto a private plate from new

    Reminds me off an old guy I use to see in a clapped out Blue mk5 Escort with the reg T4, he has since upgraded to a Honda Civic 1.4i according to MyCarCheck. I wonder what that plate is worth?!

    Took 5 mins online, took longer to swap the physical plates over :)

    Shades in place

    Done a few VCDS tweaks

    Next up is 4 new tyres and 4 wheel alignment as the steering wheel is slightly off
    Won a complete set of genuine rubber mats
    Ordered some LED interior bulbs and some shiny tyre valve caps
    Also considering a private plate.....

    In short I updated the firmware on the MMI which means I can use a sim card in the car for data services and Google Maps and use my iPhone to make and receive calls. Prior to the update the car could only use one or the other but a number of owners complained to Audi who released the updated firmware for older cars; new cars come with this capability already installed

    Is it a case of SD Card in and boot up? How long did it take..

    Did you upgrade the maps too or are they the old ones, still?

    Yep; put the SD card in, enter engineering mode and update. Took nearly an hour as I was going from a very old version

    Didn't do the maps as I don't think it will have the new road near me that has just opened so will be waiting until later in the year

    Great, update is ordered from that guy...

    I will get someone loal to open the green screen to enable the phone options. Did you update your BOSE firmware and what was your original version?

    Don't have Bose so can't comment on that. You can de-select it from the update process

    My original firmware was P0485 or something like that

    Thanks :) really pleased with how they look and they aren't too bright; just a nice clean light

    Found a seller on Ebay so the whole kit was £24 delivered rather than some other sellers I saw who wanted DOUBLE the price for the same bulbs
