What everyone got planned for their cars for the up-coming new year?

For me its -

Smoothed front and rear bumpers with anni valances blended in

S3/TT rear brake upgrade

Replace front and rear bushes

And get bonnet notch filled

For me nothing at all. Its probably not the answer you wanted woody23

Just keep the anniversary clean and tidy

I'm busy creating a list for the new car [:D]

W8 Light
Powerflex bushes all round (rear axle and front arb bushes need doing anyway)
Koni shocks and Eibach Springs

Won't be doing anything to the engine. All these stories about clutches are putting me off!

I probably wont do all of mine next year, but my list is:

Milltak Exhaust (technically this year 29th Dec)
CAI Kit
Boost Gauge and pod
Koni Sport Suspension
Santa Monica's
Repray'd bonnet

maybe a few more little things

Where to start:

18" ASA AR1 black alloys, Oettinger front & rear lower spoilers, side skirts & grill, Pentagon tints (30% on doors & 50% rear)

I think that will be all my finances can stretch to and even thats rather optimistic. If I get the tints and wheels, I'll be very happy! [:D]

Cambelt, waterpump, tensioners, thermostat (booked in for 5th Jan, a bit of a wallet breaker)

Fully blended rear bumper (it's here all welded just need some time to finish it)

Sort out and repaint the front bumper

312mm brakes

New ARB so I can finally bin my FK one

and either powdercoat my existing 18" wheels or buy some 18" dished splits. Maybe....
