<div class="bbWrapper">I've seen this type of thread on another forum I'm part of and it always seems fairly popular, allowing us to share ideas and inspiration, or just simply enjoy reading about the progress of eachother's vehicles.<br /> <br /> To start the ball rolling, I have changed all four wheels on mine for a spare set of 16s I bought, complete with winter tyres. Mr Weatherman has warned of more snow headed for Glasgow, so they seemed a shrewd investment. £230 delivered for four genuine Audi alloys with Pirelli and Bridgestone tyres was too great a bargain to pass up!<br /> <br /> I'm sure a lot of the mods and general tinkering on here will be a little more adventurous than this, particularly from the S3 boys. Over to you!</div>

Nothing but nothing gets to touch my paint surface when it dirty until its been foamed, rinsed etc etc. Applying anything on a grimy dirty car will only serve to rub said dirt across the paintwork. Spraying detailer on doesn't remove the dirt its still there.</div>

So I went and checked my tyre pressures, all four low by about 4 PSI. <br /> <br /> Could my Sunday be any more rock'n'roll?</div>
