    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 !

    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 :)
