Went back to DSD yesterday evening to see Adi and Carlo. They wrapped over wrap my bonnet as I could see a filler patch through the vinyl. The second layer soon made that dissapear and will also provide more protection against stone chips  :happy2:

Carlo also fitted my new black side repeaters  :drinking:

As there seems to be no clubstand at Inters this year I emailed them to see where I could park as wanted to show my car. The only thing they could suggest was the Show 'n' Shine!!

So on Saturday evening it'll be getting the clean of its life (not expecting to win as its got nearly 190k on it but want it to hold its own amongst the trailer queens).

Once that is done I'm going to have it off the road for a week so I can send the front calipers off to be refurbed and ceramic coated to match the rears and also send my seat belts off. I have found a company who will change the belt to the black with red edges (Edition 35 style I believe) for £150 + VAT. I have had a sample and have seen some red ones they've done for a friend  :party:

Then some 42DD bushes/short shift kit and a mk6 tailgate mechanism.

For the fact it is on 190k, it looks Amazing!! Even if it was on less than half that it looks great! Let us know how you get on at the show'n'shine.  :drinking:

Sounds like some cool mods coming too.

It wouldn't be fun if it was easy, I just wish it wasn't this much fun.

Pic from Inters today. Had a really good day and the venue was an excellent choice!
The silver ED30 you can see the rear of won best mk5, but was nice to hear people's comments as they looked round my car.



I still think there should have been a category for mk5s with over 180k  :grin:

Had found a few and was keen on one local to me but since found a newer and higher spec one. Going to view Sunday evening and put a deposit down if its as described as the seller needs to take his plate off and has agreed to put 12 months MOT on it for the right price.

Bit of a different car to the Golf.. 2010 Audi A6 3.0TDI Le Mans Avant in Daytona Grey  :party:

Yes it is. Viewed last night and left deposit on it. Hopefully pick it up next weekend  :party:

I have someone coming to view mine tomorrow so could all work out perfectly.

Thanks Chris  :drinking:


Someone came last night to and left me a deposit as I've taken my plate off and just waiting for the V5 to land.

Will post a pic of the Audi once I get it home.
