Have it a long overdue wash.                  

Well I couldn't wait to clean the car for pics in the end.. I'm absolutely chuffed with how they look. Was worried about the grey on grey to begin with but I am very happy.    

Had the R lowered and my wheels fitted.

Unexpected bonus with my Stage 2...MPG has gone up from 19.9 to 23.3....:lol:


That will be negated by the fact that you’ll be thrashing the sh*t out of it since going stage 2 😂👍

Short Review of my Integrated Engineering Stage 2 tune and DSG tune.....In a word...."Impressive"......Anything over 4,000 rev's is brutal...(in a good way) and throws you back in your seat.....:lol:....Lots of fun and makes me enjoy my R all over again.....:afro:.....Next mods are new wheels.....Racingline Stage 2 BBK and my yet to be installed Bilstein B16's....:)....My Stage 1 R wasn't exactly slow....but Stage 2 is another level entirely....:azn:...Very happy....:wink:

Good spec mate.

must admit I’m thinking of going stage 2 my self.

what make of intercooler did you go with?

As I’m Revo stage 1 was thinking of having  the Revo intercooler fitted but most people say go with Wanger🤔 decisions , decisions.

I went IE for my intercooler as most of my mods are IE ....My 2 cents if I was you is to go Revo...I'm a big fan of their products personally

Fitted a full engine undertray today! My chosen VAG Specialist might not thank me when Engine and DSG oil changes come around in November, but peace of mind in the meantime makes it worth the frown he’s bound to have when he sees it. 😆

…sorry, forgot to get a pic before I dropped the car, and I wasn’t about to jack it back up when I remembered.
 

Also ordered a 6.5L Sealey fluid extraction pump - so a mid-year oil refresh will be a thing from now on. 👍

Mine did this this morning, I'm now looking at the heating element. Did you just replace the glass? 

 

Anyone got any tips on attaching the glass of that's all I need, the mirror has been rattling a bit when I close the door. What glue would I need?

I just ordered the glass from ebay it came with sticky foam backing so just peel back the plastic cover, put a hairdryer on the sticky bit for 20 secs or so and pop it on your mirror, no prep needed, right on top of what you see in your pic. Just make sure it is done roughly in the right place as you can't shift it once stuck

Full on hoover for mine today, spare wheel out and a good going over. Is it easy to pull up the rear bench base on a 5 door or a ball ache?


I seem to remember the last time I vacuumed mine I accidentally caught the underside of the seat squab w/ the handle of the vac and knocked it up …It’s that easy. 👍

Today I painted my original brake calipers as I’m going to remove my Macan calipers as with the R360 wheel and spacer it’s just too much.

Its been a tough decision on what to sell between wheels and calipers but since I won’t be tracking the car I’ve chosen to sell my calipers.

What do you mean by too much? Are the wheels sticking out too much?
