Not an up update but this happened on Wednesday...



Still drives like it's done less than half that and still easily achieving 45-50mpg.

The roof lining is next on my list, how easy was it to change?
How hard can it be?

I had the help of my mate who's an Audi technician. He could have done it in his sleep but he took his time and let me help lol. Def a 2-man job when actually getting the lining in. Looking back now I suppose I could have removed the old one by myself and from then on had an idea of how to put the black one in but he said to wait and he'd do it...

Pic of black head lining...

Still need to sort rear view mirror surround. Don't think it'll come off without breaking something so might just try and pick up an all black one. If you have swapped how did you remove it?
I have read a few horror stories such as the windscreen cracking.

Nice update re the black headlining, i nearly bought one earlier this week but decided against it for now.
I have also the cream edging around my rear view mirror, have you had any luck swapping it for a black one?

Thanks mate, its nothing compared to most on here but its coming along nicely. She drives nice, my route to work consists of some bumpy B-roads so have to take it steady else the splitter scrapes sometimes. But generally very good and a massive improvement from stock. There is some sportline springs in the for sale section if you haven't already got some. You should snap them up as there a cheaper price than I paid for mine!

Its still cream at the moment but is on my ever growing list of this to do. I'll probably just buy a complete black one and swap them over.

Very small update. Had a full service last Saturday at Audi Peterborough and today as I was bored I thought I'd lamin-X the front fogs. The passenger side lens is cracked but you can't really tell. I have more than enough left to do another when I replace it. Over all, pleased with the outcome and should offer them a bit of protection.
