Here are some pics of my ride.

This puppy has 19" RS4 Alloys, Remus Titanuim Exhaust, FK Coilovers, AMd Superchip (205bhp at wheels), Ramair filter and Bailey dump valve. I will be adding an R-Line kit and uprating the anchors in the near future and will post some more pics once it comes out the paint shop.

Welcome mate.

Nice car............

Being picky, but "AMd Superchip" - is a contradiction......

Superchips are a separate company to the other onewhodon't make a "Superchip".......

Sorry for being nurdy.....enjoy your stay !

Thanks for pointing that out....but it truly is "Super" to me.....hee hee.

Don't stress about being nurdy! None of us would be here if we were not obsessed with MKIV's, which by it's own definition is a little "Nurdy".

Thanks for the welcome

Very funky! Change the back wiper though for a Polo / Fabia one, also, it seems to be parked in the wrong position, is that something you have done?

Liking the numberplates also, they do stand out quite a bit, didnt think they would.

What do you mean about the parking?
Your rear wiper seems to be 'parking' i.e stopping in the wrong position, it should be completely horizontal along line with the boot. If you look at some of the other member rides you will see what I mean. I didnt know if you had done it on purpose to be different or something.

Really quick fix would be to take the wiper off while its in its parked position and put it back on straight if you did want it that way.

Well when i got the chip installed i was told to expect 50-60bhp increase but having added the dump valve, filter and exhaust, which have all contributed to the BHP increase even more. I am going back to the dyno later this year as I am having a new synthetic manifold gasket fitted and maybe an intercooler if i can stretch to it.

Just took a pic of mine mainly to show you how it should be sitting as standard and also, this is the aero wiper which i think is a polo rear, but if I'm wrong, someone correct me.

Sorry about the filhty car everyone, but this is how a car get's when you drive it [:D]

Nice looking car mate. Like the 19 inch RS4's [y]
Thanks Man. They are a bit of a labour of love as they can be kerbed easily and are easily damaged if a pot hole pops up. But as long as i don't let my girlfriend drive it then there are no problems. Besides I have just bought her a silver MKIV of her own so she has no need to drive mine.

I have recently had to send two away to be reconditioned as some T***er decided to try and push me out of the road whilst overtaking and I gotr pitched into a ditch so one was badly dented. Needless to say he won't be doing that again!

Like your santa monica's man....nice smooth alloys.

Your car looks really good....

I like this photo

Thanks Man! I have a few more mods planned. Just bought an R32 kit today and am in the process of getting a twin back box to retrofit to mt titanium exhaust.

I must say your car looks the nuts too!
