    Although if I glued it to the sensor and plugged the hole in the bottom it could be a cone

    Looks good. Love the effect of front grille.

    De-chrome is a must if you’ve not got the Black Edition.

    You have Tech Pack Advanced - give away are the fog light domes in each of the front lower grilles and you get ACC, Lane Assist, Blind Spot Assist over the tech pack. Some useful and some not so useful options.

    HUD is rare so kudos for finding one.

    Now get it wrapped in Mythos ;)

    Cheers buddy yeah it’s hard to find one with everything isn’t it my compromises had to be age mileage and chrome unfortunately haha but a good spec and service history is what I wanted, needed a pan roof and some other bits, didn’t even notice it had a bigger screen and touch pad until I got home . Unfortunately the vinyl wrap is peeling on the very back corner of the window surround already might be a paint job in the future, my back bumpers a different shade and I’d like some stone chips sorting anyway!

    The hud is nice to keep an eye on your speed, but with nav on the screen and directions on your clocks and then the hud gets a bit over kill haha

    That’s looking really good mate. Been thinking about doing both of those things on mine. How did you prep/paint the calipers?

    Yeah guessed the discs were like that. New discs always look good. What paint did you use?

    Really happy with the map! Pulls you nicely back in your seat, haven’t really been able to compare mpg yet but it’s knocked a strong half a second 0-60 low 5’s

    Nice transformation there.
    Love a de-chromed white Avant :) I'd remove the TDI badge for a crisper rear end (just my opinion).
    Enjoy mate.
