I'm Brett from Sheffield. (Or is it rotherham?...or Worksop? haha - North Anston, near Dinnington.)

So this is how I got it back in Oct '10:

Mods:

- Audi alloys
- Coilovers
- Bluetooth door lock/unlock + other controls.

Mods planned:

- Twindicators (slightly different though)
- Custom vinyl wrap (maybe two tone/camo/something a bit funky...or just matt orange :D)
- Custom engine bay covers
- Custom lighting
- Keyless ignition (start with RFID or Phone (custom car managment system)) + one press start stop setup ;)
- New wheels!!
- Bora front end. - maybe..probably not though.

Problems so far:

- Driveshaft bolts coming out! - Fixed
- Wiper linkcage corroded (slow wiper syndrome) - Semi fixed
- Uneven ride height
- No central locking + drivers keyhole only unlocks (have to climb over seats to lock doors) - Fully Fixed (BlueBox)
- Strange judder when slowly accelerating from around 1,900 RPM
- Passenger door doesn't lock on first press due to common failed door switch.

I'll keep updating this post.

Looking good dude, I told admiral about my black roof and door pillars and they didn't add anything to the policy [Y]

I'm looking to vinyl wrap it, but what should I do? Two tone, camo solid colour?? Maybe matt white? or even matt orange, I could do with a sample of it but its pointless just buying 1 metre of it but then again it could save me a few £££ if I don't like it.

A little update:

Decided to have a snoop round under the bonnet and found this:

Now fixed with some rubber tubing and a few tie wraps :D

I then decided to start fitting the BlueBox project box:

Ooh what a mess!

Posted Image


I ran the wires through the centre console to the glovebox, coming out of the glovebox light socket (light didn't work anyway so no worries :)

Behind the radio:

All in the glovebox in the "bluebox tupperware type project box"

Also knocked up some stickers :p

And some ukmkivs ones, is it a sign that I should get a MKV? Surely not....

Should I black B pillar mod or not?

How high do you reckon the cars running at at the minute? On 16" Audi wheels. (yes I need some new ones haha)

What's the bluebox thing?
x2
Thats the remote central locking of course :) lock, unlock and control other things from my phone.

Android remote central locking.... there's an app for that:

Posted Image


App doesn't look like this any more though as Ive updated it several times since this pic. I'm just working on a re-design of the app at the moment so pics of finished app will be posted :)

And as for going orange, it won't be JUST yet as I'm just getting some monies together to do it but I'm thinking along the lines of matt orange with matt black roof, door pillars, lower valances and sills. I think a photochop is in order, I'll sort one out soon.

I'm thinking of doing something like this? Or should I do something different? The new door isn't perfect so using some vinyl to hide the imperfections would be the best thing to do. However a full wrap, I just can't afford at this minute in time. Pic:
