Considering Audi Beam but might just leave that until I get a service done

Will certainly leaving hints and tips on some detailing stuff in Prep for post winter spruce up...Gtechniq stuff most likely

Also thinking about one of those tyre sealant kits in case of a puncture as it should save the hassle of a wheel change should you get a flat.

Some great ideas so far - keep them coming ...

Like the dash cam idea only other idea I had was for some sort of cheap laptop/tablet to run VCDS on rather than lugging a 2.5Kg laptop inside the car with me.

Like the Audi Beam Dave very easy to fit and loving the new Avatar BTW !!!

Cleaning stuff for me, likely Gtechniq as well. Larger SD card for my dash cam and a VWR600 is on the want list as well..ha

I'd like a set of mats. the poem ones aren't the most durable on the market.
the turning lights in the headlight, great feature, but with the nice colour of the xenon bulbs up front, they come on all orange, i think i want to change the bulbs to something more 'cool' in colour.

RS3 style grill - thats a top priority
private reg

and then the modification parts for performance, but i won't touch any of that till someone releases a map!

will i get any of those...probably not, i have a wedding to finish paying for!


Oh, VCDS, id love VCDS!

Great idea Si - must say compared to the outside my interior doesn't get much attention although I do put leather conditioner on the seat bolsters every month. Need to master Jassy's flop method reckon he should put a YouTube video up !

Got one of them (18v flexi Dust buster, I think) last Xmas and does the job pretty good

Cheers Dave, the reviews are really good and whilst I don't expect it to have the suction of a dyson it should do well enough :)

Rob, yeah we need that video evidence mate, come on J let the dog see the rabbit!! lol

everything has changed...

i have just heard that APR is releasing the new ecu map anyday now...looks like I'm going stage 2 for christmas!

That would make a nice pressie ;o)

What downpipe you going for ? - presume this is still required for APR stage 2.

i want a full system anyway, i like the OEM sound but i want more, so a full decat, non res and valved from Milltek looks like my preferred choice!
