    I used it on my S3 wheel and then put a decent sealer back on it. But for everyone just be aware that Magic Erasers are very fine melamine resin, so they act like a very fine sandpaper....so never use on paint!

    EDIT* If you have a white plastic toilet seat and it goes a bit off colour, the ME brings it back!

    Haha, your right. It's a shame that these along with the door cards/handles are like these, especially considering what Audi charge as replacement OEM parts :busted cop:

    Do you mean red and green?
    Really easy, I've got a box of trim tools, just started at the lower egde and moved along popping as it went. I might have to pop the drivers off again. Not quite flush on the top edge. Passenger one is spot on.

    Witter towbars! When I was in my early 20's my mate and I did a disco for Peter Witter (he ran the company then) it was for his wife's birthday at his private river garden/moring near the sailing club in Chester. We went to his house a few days prior to the party, he had a brand new BMW convertible on the drive, we said it was nice and he replied with "Thanks, it's my wifes birthday present".

    On the night of the disco/party the marquee was out of this world, never seen anything like it, the decorations, flowers, lights etc. were like something from a royal wedding! It was also a free bar all night for all the guests and us ;) I've never seen so much top end food in my life, it was constantly being topped up all night! Some of the cars parked outside were unreal, Porsche, Ferrari, Bentley, Aston Martin, top end Mercedes and BMW's. At the end of the night he thanked us and gave us £200, we had only quoted him £80 lol....I'll never forget that night, it was a proper eye opener on how the other half live :)

    Looking back I should have bagged myself a rich older woman that night :D:p

    Painted the wheels velvet purple!
    The car is panther black, so has that purple tone on it when it’s in the sun! Although I’m thinking about getting it wrapped purple anyway! E65E6C50-98E9-4D63-BFE4-9E6109C1D11A.jpeg

    I think we need to see pics of these once fitted. Beautiful colour, but not to sure if it’s a colour for alloy wheels.

    Its a bold choice, that’s for sure.
    In a few weeks the rest of the car is going in for full correction (it’s had a hard five years) and coating, I imagine once it’s polished up it should look quite good!

    Decided to start wrapping my interior trim in carbon fibre as I miss it since having it in my S5 so far so good really happy with how it’s turning out, it’s just very fiddly on the corners!

    Need to get the door cards off another day to finish the job but here is the progress so far!

    Haven’t done yet but my plan for today is to try and polish out some scratches from the chrome window surrounds. Is autosol the best thing to use?

    Multiple things since quarantine.

    Rerouted and remade an8 hoses for my external oil cooler, along with adding a Mishimoto thermostat.

    Upgraded and installed my V1 to V3 hybrid turbo.

    Added a 10micron fuel filter to keep my injectors cleaner with an6 fittings.

    Upgraded my hpfp internals with autotech parts.

    Rewired my pm4 to use OEM fuses to easily disable Walbro 525 fuel pump from engine bay.

    Moved my e85 ethanol analyzer to top of gas tank and added relay to provide power only when ignition on.

    Added 4bar map sensors to top and bottom intakes paths and made wiring harness for pnp swapping.

    Chemically cleaned the entire engine bay so it looks cleaner than when it came if the factory assembly line.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    used a little bit of autosol on the worst scratch which helped a little but doubt its going to come out.

    went over again with AG super resin. Brought the shine back. I was gonna wrap my chrome nlack but i think the chrome looks better when the cars clean gives a better contrast

    Also clean the stitching and leather on steering wheel with a toothbrush and dome Dodo juice leather cleaner as suggested by people on here. See the difference, cleaned bit on the inside.

    Changed oil & an oil filter last weekend. I thought it was the right time at 22000 km. Didn't want to wait for 30K as it was prescribed for a long life service.

    Received new alloys and prepared them for ceramic coating.

    Thanks mate. It's only a few parts to install, two radar sensors and two indicators in the mirrors (and new mirror caps to fit the indicators), but there's a lot of work to install them. Rear bumper has to be removed, so you also have to remove rear lights and interior bumper trims so you can reach all the screws and nuts. In order to pass the wires from the sensors to the doors you have to remove almost every trim in the cabin. Hardest part is adding new wiring in the doors and into the mirrors. Coding was easy.

    Fitted a second Boot Hook to my S3 saloon. Audi should have fitted 2 like the A4, but corner cutting meant only one curry hook. I also prefer symmetry.
