Nothing; someone has parked his BMW outside my house (I don't have a drive) so I cannot get near enough to use the front garden hose and clean off the thousands of insects I killed driving back from Devon yesterday.
NB despite owning a BMW he is a nice enough chap so I am not bitter.

Is there any places you can get the hubs painted / can't be bothered doing it myself . Might get mine done before the dreaded rust comes .
I suppose some detailing type places might do it. No clue how much they would charge.

It would probably be cheaper buying new discs if you aren’t gonna paint it yourself. It’s normally the rears that’s the worse as it doesn’t heat up as much as fronts. Rears discs are around £15-20 each for blueprint ones that are painted/coated.

Been away for a few days and had to park under a beech tree. Discovered that the drain holes in the 'gutter' below the windscreen where blocked with small leaves and seeds and even twigs. So apart from the usual post holiday wash and brush up spent 20 minutes clearing the debris with a cordless Dyson and some tweezers.

Nada - left her locked up somewhere safe and sound and collected this 1,200 miles later as the family steed for the week. The manual says 85kw, so think that’s a 30 (116bhp) TFSI. There’s no badging on the rear). It is slow, and I’m not sure about the styling, but the boot is a decent size and when I was offered a Renault Captur at a €70 premium for the week, I happily took the A1 instead, lol.

Yeah very expensive. I've seen loads recently around my area, having not seen many on the road I've seen about 20 in the past week already. Wonder if there's a promo on them at the moment.

Can do from what I'm told , improved air flow . Don't imagine it'll be a huge difference . Itching to see the results of the remap though .

Anyone used the X-Uk RS3 style grille , curious how the Audi rings attach to it ? Considering going for it .....

Sent from my Nokia 8 using Tapatalk
They clip in, same as your current grill. Heard good things about the the "fresh Modz UK" grills and actually about to purchase an RS5 grill from them

Swapped over hankook tyres for Pirelli as I thought the road noise was a little excessive with the hankook.
Bought a touch up kit from Audi and touched up a few stone chips too

Bought some cameras to look over cars at night, which I'll write in next week

The ring cameras are quality mate, got one myself. Easy to use and set up, can control the motion sensitivity and the area. Hard not to like (imo).

How much was the cameras if you don't mind me asking as i wouldn't mind some myself .

£398 for 2 mate, I did shop around & could of got them for £188 each but i got them locally, plan to add a 3rd for the side of the house (but not the flood light cam), seems like a super easy solution. I'll be starting the fitting later so will see how that goes.
