well I've always done power 1st, then worried about my handling  :thinking: but this time I'm going to start from my interior as I'm going to be spending most of my time :grin: then concentrate on handling and brakes, so Ive left the power till last  :driver:

Awww - sorry to hear about your first ED30. Glad to see you've gone for another.

Looks good - have you gone for DSG or manual? How does this compare to your first one?
Don't blame you for starting interior first. That was how I approached mine as it drove so well compared to my old mkiv - felt like it was modified as standard to drive! I added MFSW, RNS510, Highline clocks, then mk6 switches - all of which have made the car feel much more modern.

DSG mate :grin: to be truly honest this one is a lot cleaner and well spec'd to my 1st one.
I've got rns510, reversing rear camera, mfsw, mdi, cruise, xenons with headlight washers, mk6 chrome tipped switches all around. only done 46k but on its 2nd service book, but driving wise my old ed30 was a lot more powerful  :jumping: :driver:

No worries - know what it's like!
Any plans for adding to the power on the ED30? Can't believe I waited 4 years before stage 1 on mine. What a different car...!
