Just looking at my car maintenance and modding spreadsheet makes for some interesting reading. Apart from the fact I have now blown £7K on this car, it's the time between buying stuff and fitting it that is, um, eye-opening [:|]

So who's UK-MKIV's slowest modder? Here's my stats:

  • K&N panel filter: bought 15 Jul 2004, fitted 24 Jul 2004
  • H&R coilovers: bought 3 Oct 2004, fitted rears 13 Nov 2004, fitted fronts 13 Dec 2004
  • Powerflex bushes: bought 15 Nov 2004, fitted gradually from 11 Dec 2004 to 21 Dec 2005
  • S3 lower strut brace: bought 23 Aug 2005, fitted 27 Aug 2005 (OK this must be a record...)
  • Milltek exhaust: bought 8 Dec 2005, still not fitted as of 2 Oct 2006...
  • H&R rear anti-roll bar: bought 9 Jan 2006, fitted 21 Apr 2006
  • VF Engineering ARB drop links: bought 25 Feb 2006, fitted 20 Apr 2006
  • EIP dog bone mount: bought 5 Apr 2006, fitted 10 Jun 2006

I just can't seem to fit stuff immediately, I have to look at it, admire it, get to know it inside-out.

I dont understand how you can buy stuff and just leave it, whenever i buy something, it must go on straight away............in most cases! [;)]

I bought a Turbo Intake Pipe in march and an eliminator valve. They have been on and off the car twice. Cant be arsed to put it back on though as the guys at the stealer wont like them being there when they are doing warranty work. Car feels better for having them on though.

OK - So you are a site engineer who has admired and got to know his milltek exhaust inside-out for over a year, under his desk at work.

Almost spat my tea out writing that! Site rhymes with something else that is apt in this pisstake [:p]

I think I'm going to be the slowest modder. I've had my car since May '99 and haven't modded.

One of the first mods I bought for the golf was blue door leds from Foxy, that was back in 2002.  Sold the car in Aug 2006 and they still weren't fitted!!

been sprayed let alone put on the car... I think they've found their
way into the loft so I probably wont get them down until I move!
