What is the best car improvement or mod that you have done?

I'm interested to know what is the best improvement you have made to your car. No matter how big or small.

I got this seat gap pad filler that fits between the centre console and the seat. No more trying to retrieve your phone or parking tickets for 5 minutes being on all 4s with your butt sticking out of the passenger door and then emerging with multiple scratches on your hand. Such a simple thing but really effectively. I bought it on Aliexpress for a few pound. It doesn't look good when it's in your hand but when it's in position it blends in really well. Does the job really well.

Either Milltek exhaust or DTUK box for me! But they’re both pretty expensive options.

Seen them on Ali but thought I will pass on them.
Just hoovered the car to prep it for aitp and it took me 2 hours just to vacuum. Amount of sh... found in these gaps it is impossible.
Found a year old m&m’s. Lol

Just two days ago fitted S6 style mirror housings (I know I’m not from this section)

How did you do the latest mmi firmware?

That was latest version available that time, in summer 2017 and updated by @DJAlix
He came with SD cards and updated it for me. So technically, I haven’t done it but had it done.

Would like to see a picture with it fitted to the car.

All my carbon bits for me. Yet to do any engine tuning yet.

Hardly any use to us if its not the same A4, the MMI systems are very different from a A6 to an A3 to A4...

The new MIB2 systems in the A3/4/5/Q5 are almost the same. Only a few coding differences and in some cases hardwareversions.

Yes the A5 and the Q5 are the same platform, this I already know. But the pre facelift a3 isn't quite the same and can use carista, as can the fl. With the b9 a4, the q5 and the a5 you cannot. Which suggests there is different coding...

Not completely, the MIB2 in the FL is partly the same as the MIB1 in the PFL. The coding / adaptions are most of the part the same. However the "control" (don't know how to write it down) is for some options "active" like the multi colour ambient lighting.

The other modules are indeed totally different.

Finally got round to taking pictures of the gap fillers. They also come plain if you don't like the S-line logo. I got both but the ones with logo are better quality.

There will be checks on these in the new MOT. Is it not going to be a costly reversal?
