Yeah can see I really need to do this when it's the weather is better :)
Haven't wrapped the side vents yet, only the front centre console has been wrapped along with the grey plastic panels there's in the doors.

Let me know if and when you figure out to put some red light in the dash piece as in newer cars :D - Would really be this coolest upgrade of this interior hehe..

Red light in the dash, what's that then?

Got the car back and my god, what a difference, mechanic said the dv wasn't split but deformed but now I've got the dv+ on, pre-cat delete and res delete and service it sounds nice and goes like it's a new car, unbelievable!

Not got any pics of it lowered yet though.

I definitely made the right choice in springs. I was a bit worried about it rubbing the arches but looks spot on :happy2:

I was going to look at it with a view to buy it that day, but just before i set out i called and they said it had sold and someone had put 1k deposit down :(. The only thing that it was missing on my criteria was xenons, but 3dr DSG Shadow blue cars are rare so you got a good buy  :happy2: cheers John

Yeah it's got a good spec, not sure what else was available other than the lights.
Also having them switch the 17"wheels to the 18" wider bbs  ones made a big difference to me :happy2:
