Ok so this is my 1.8t AUM owned it since june 2009 and have slowly been modifiying it .

Sorry if this seems a little broken up but its because ive taken this off my local forum www.dubshire.co.uk to save me writing it up again.

As its is now:
1.8 turbo
Revo Stage 2 Remap (215bhp ish)
4 Bar feul pressure regulator
K&N 57i induction kit
Japspeed resonated stainless exhaust
Anni body kit
Vmaxx coilovers
Pressed german plates
Euro spec GTi rear lights

As i got it with the cavenous arch gap.....

Oh and nt to for get my new JVC KW-XR611 double din head unit with changable back ground colours, so naturally the buttons are red and the lcd is deep blue like the standard colours. Although doesent look very blue in this pic for some reason.

bit of an up date nothing ground breaking, but since i put the coilovers on its taken it toll on the front wish bone bushes which have cracked quite badly.
And since the mot is looming these arrived mid last week,

so saturday i decided to to stick them on, and while the wheels where off i thought i might as well do the discs and pads at the same time.

I also noticed that since ive wound the coils to the bottom the drive shaft had been catching the arb AGAIN!!!

so i decided to make my adjutable drop links non adjustable as the shortest they would go was about 4.75" between centres. so i took the hack saw to them and shortened them to 3.25" and had them welded up.

This practically doubled the room between the front of the drive shaft and the arb.
