    Decided I wanted a full sized spare so fitted some Quattro boot inserts, ordered the smaller boot trim and trimmed up the side trims. Just gotta get another alloy now but at least I can store jump leads etc. Unfortunately this means I loose a fair bit of boot space so the dog won’t fit anymore damn shame

    is this just a straight swap, or does it need coding and modding?

    You’ve got to trim up the sides to get it to fit. But other than that it physically fits but I think I’ve got to have a look at either the wiring or the coding as it giving out interesting results when say pushing the ac button and the air shuts off but I’ve not had time to look into it at the minute. The screen clears and 99% of the functions do as expected I just need to look into why the ac button shuts the air off once I’ve worked it out I’ll update

    It’s fairly easy bud, you need to remove the knee rests or triangle trims. Pop the gear stick cover up and you’ll have access to the 8mm bolts at the back then under the ac unit there’s another bolt at the other end, then it’s just the 5mm Allen key boot in the middle and the triangles can be removed.

    Then it you pop the trim off under the radio you have access to the top of the ac unit and it’ll give you purchase to pull/push down and it’ll come out.

    I've been working on getting the car ready for it's MOT. Ordered new wipers which arrived today to be fit tomorrow, had 4 new tyres fit end of last week and going over all the last bits (indicator bulb has gone I think).

    Does have some lights on the dash...quite a few actually....but hopefully the majority of those are because the battery died and it hasn't had a proper run since.

    Gathered a few bits from the written off car.

    Didn’t have a lot of time so couldn’t take out the flat bottom steering wheel with airbag (I know right, I mean that’s £450 right there). Hopefully the breaker that buys it from Coparts will be very happy (and the facelift tails lights).

    Anyway here’s some bits for sale: https://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threa...ot-create-a-thread.54549/page-38#post-3612938

    Yup. Thanks for the kind words.

    It was a bit surreal as the accident happened at 15MPH. I turned a tight corner into a road where cars were parked on both sides and had income traffic so decided to pull to left a bit and just my luck that someone had parked right in the corner with the back sticking out!

    Way to go because we were on our way back to London from Wales and decided to stop over to our sister in law’s place in Birmingham.

    I did the right thing, left and note, informed insurance etc. The owner of the car calls me later in the day, very surprised as apparently in Birmingham no one ever leaves a note and surprised that I let my insurance company know. Apparently in Birmingham that’s not a thing either. Turns out that her car (an Audi TT) wasn’t insured. Go figure.

    Anyway it’s all done and dusted. You live and learn.

    When I did the 8P1 to 8P3 conversion I could only find a grill with a crack. My mate repaired it and painted it grey to match my old wheels. I finally took it off and gave it a tart up decided on gloss black but not sure if it’s too much black what do you guys think?

    Where did you get your EVAP Charcoal Canister from? Any recommendations? As Audi wants to charge me $450 AUD for the part and I'm not a huge fan of going pre-owned.

    Wow, that’s steep. I just got it on eBay for less than GBP 20. It didn’t have a brand stated, but turned out to be one of those parts where the Audi symbol has been scratched off to keep things legal!

    the really odd thing is that as you posted, i was watching a video of a guy fitting the very same things


    on his mondeo, there were similar things fitted from factory.

    id assume theyd need to fitted right up against the arb bush to work, yours arent so whats stopping the arb from moving still?

    No idea why they were like that, never even noticed them before, was only because the sunlight was shining off it that I realised.

    They’re now barely 1mm off the side of the bushes, no noticeable difference but didn’t drive it hard
