So a few days before I had a hole in my flexi and the car sounded like a truck. Instead of fixing it I ordered something..Today a guy was at my door and delivered this:





I didn't get any more pictures, cause I left straight away to get it fitted!
It's a turbo back sports cat scorpion exhaust. So happy!
Car sounds amazing! Such a nice exhaust.
Stage 2 is on the way! :happy2:

Just thought of giving a quick update on this one..

The car is now stage 2 by R Tech making 275bhp.
I did it together with inlet and injector cleaning, a new thermostat, and a DSG remap as well.
The car is sooo enjoyable now!

Other bits I did was to change my rear calipers as the ones I had were seized and were dragging me. Installed new pads along with everything. Discs will follow.

After all these jobs done, I saw my mpg going up up!
Happy days!

Ordered a smooth front grill and some yellow H7s for the headlights. I will hopefully get the look I want!

I got a set of wheels couple of months ago, it was an immaculate set of genuine 2 piece BBS speedlines.
19x9 et33. Unfortunately as soon as I put them on, they look nothing like I had imagined, since my car is stock height,
so I sold them back.
Suspension work must be done first!

Interior wise, nothing at all, apart from refitting a new cruise control stalk as my old one was broken!
I got the annoying airbag fault.. Can I deactivate something through VCDS to get rid of the light or only fixing it will solve it?

Cheers!
