Id like,

IHI Turbo
Uprated clutch
Uprated internals

A little expensive I reckon so realistically I doubt it will happen but I do have my mad moments!!

Oh, thinking about it, maybe an S3 strut brace for when it gets a bit older, to tighten things up. That's it, no more...

Drilled discs and Green Stuff fast road pads...... this monday.

Blueflame R32 twin exit exhaust, de-cat and downpipe.....tuesday.

K03s, 4 Bar FPR and Anni TIP with Phase 2 Custom Code remap ...... wednesday - friday.

...and Goodyear F1's ready and waiting to go on next weekend.

...also at some point the following week I need to get my bumpers and skirts re-sparayed because the bloody bodyshop painted them in the wrong shade of Satin Silver!

It's a busy week.

2000 1.8T Satin Silver - Upsolute. Konis. Eibach Springs. 18" RS4's. R32 trim.

My next two major mods will be coilovers and remap. Coilovers this year and remap next year.

rear disc conversion in between if poss. What uprated rear brakes can I fit ? just got the solid disc at the moment. I'd like the rear to be uprated to match the front if poss.. running 312 mm anni set up front atm.

once I have the coilovers fitted the 17's will be on. have those already just waiting to save a bit for the coilovers so I don't confused for a landy [;)][:p]

And then next year:

Custom Code Phase 2 in January, when I change insurance companies and maybe get a CAI fitted, the same one as fitted to JBS's Octavia

Probably a few other little bits here and there as well

Brembos
Coilovers
FMIC

and a whopping great turbo (undecided between the IHI or GT28RS tho)

Gotta treat the old girl...
Uprated internals too?
I reckon its only the cost of the internals thats stopped me having a big turbo at present - ?2K ish[:O]
