What a beatuiful and sparkly engine bay you have there lol good job. Like the pedals too, might get me some, do you know if you can get a set thats say "TDI" rather than GTI?

What did you have to do to mod the oil cap?

yes you can get dead pedal with TDI on it - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-GOLF-BORA-MK4-SEAT-SKODA-TDI-FOOTREST-PEDAL-GTI-/160622381660?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item2565d70a5c

The R8 cap ...all you need to do is split the cap ....there is a small seal just under the chrome top , if you remove it there is a split in the plastic ....you need to prise it apart ....then you will see some little cutouts in the top part that fit into lugs in the bottom part to stop it spinning round ...you need to put some extra cuts into the top part to allow you to centralise the two parts if you know what i mean ....i used a bit of white paint and put it on the 4 lugs , then put other half onto making sure it was in same position as your old cap and press together hard ...then should have the 4 paint marks on the top part of cap which you just cut out and then put cap back together ...basically straight forward

hope that helps

Nice job, looking good. Im just curious about something i can see in your engine bay.

Have you changed your egr to intercooler hose as it looks slightly different to standard? may just be me being stupid though ...

No that is original pipe ...you mean the one that goes above the cambelt and round front under the engine cover ? i know mine had been changed before i had it as they had been modified ...but thats about as much as i know ...lol
