Never really considered it before, but I quite like the colour coded wheels to wing mirror combo SurreyED30  :happy2:
Thanks Jon, I think it looks good too :smiley:

Thanks nibz

Anyone local with vagcom? Want some bits activated soon  :happy2:
My brother has VAGCOM, he's done the locking noises and day time running lights etc. on my ED30. Based just south of Ipswich.

Hi all

Between owning my first edition 30 and this one I also had a MK4 R32 for a few months so I thought I would share it with you guys, I am quite into detailing now and have a rather large amount of products etc I bought this and Made a cheeky £1,350 on it by just detailing it and fitting GT100 miltek tips to the old style rear silencer  :innocent: . The story with the R32 was I didn’t like it nor did the misses so I sold it, was worth buying one though as the V6 sound is something else  :P

Few parcels have arrived this week, got a few top ups for my detailing collection as its getting a little low on some products. I am going to try the Gyeom tar and iron fallout stuff, anyone used it before? also going to try poorboys Nattys blue paste wax as i havent used it before. new wheel woolies as the dog ate 2 of them  :fighting: literally . another Guzzler drying towel as mine has gone a bit sh*tty in the washing machine  :sad1:



Also got my R8 coilpacks, NGK 7's and camfollower with new bolts & oring + some PIAA Xtreme bulbs



I am off work from 2 weeks as of friday so I cant wait to get stuck into the car sunday/monday for a huge cleaning session and fit the maintence bits n bobs.

any tips for cleaning the Revo filter?

Jake

It felt very heavy to drive and generally quite a heavy car round the B roads which I didn't enjoy. My girlfriend  constantly moaned about the colour and how big it was to drive so it went.

It's was 2+ with a Aston Martin BBK with the td wheels and bilsteins.

Don't really remember it clearly, remember it was a lovely car and 1 of only a few sportback 3 dr dsg?

It's been 2 years with no boost :ashamed:

Done a few bits on the eddy today, apologise for the dirty bay, still haven't detailed the car yet either :ashamed:

Fitted new ngk 7 iridiums along with R8 coilpacks



You'll notice I removed the oil filler neck as well as I personally think they look stupid once a cai is fitted.

I then tackled the cam follower, easy job took about 15 minutes.



Fitted a new oring, glad I did as when removing my original it broke into 6 pieces.



The wear on the original follower





I didn't take pictures but I also wet sanded and polished the headlights back to new along with the exhaust tips which aren't perfect but much much better. Fitted some PIAA Xtreme bulbs, highly recommend them, bit pricey at over £50+ for halogens but phenomenal light output and a nice 4K colour

Really enjoying the new eddy and I can't till after Xmas for some mods :evilgrin:

 rolled over the 50k milestone last night
