More bits



Under seat storage installed



Delivery from the States turned up, really wanted one of these and managed to find one unopened and sealed in box - yeah I'm kinda sad like that  :stupid:

I took the stickers off mine. Cant remember if they were a pig to fit or not! Looking good otherwise

Next up projector fog lights and proper ed30 mats. After that I'm gonna get the front end done but that'll be expensive! Got the wheel from Eddie-NL. I was lucky he was able to get the red stitched one - I wouldn't have gone for one if it didn't have the red though

Nothing too exciting but done a few more bits. Nearlly how I want it before starting on more serious mods.
After reading and seeing the Roh Echt intake valve cleaning DIY guide ()
figured its gotta be worth a go so used this to do it...



The car seems to start up a little better, but that may have something to do with the other bits I have done.  The amount of smoke that was produced was impressive to say the least - I can only liken it to a military smoke granade in its density.  Seems to be a little happier on tick over too, but it may just be me!!

My car has been running its original PCV since I got it so wanted to update that to the most recent one. Interesting the change in design over the years...



Fitted...



After a bit of a nightmare getting one... I had bits missing from my order - like the piston and the piston spring - you know nothing major or anything!!!! Finally got the GFB DV+. Iv fitted it on a Rev D as I figure, maybe, the solenoid may be stronger than the rev G as the rev D has to operate a piston. Probably exactly the same, they do look identical, but thought I'd give it a go. If anyone knows please do say  :happy2:



Fitted...



So far really impressed with the way it responds to my right foot and certainly feels more sure of its self holding the boost.

Thats it for now but more bits coming  :pomppomp:

Got a revo Intake from AKS (Cheers for quick delivery Alex) and fitted tonight. The induction roar is amazing now and can really hear the difference.

Got an engine cover coming soon

Got some deals on a few bits which ment I needed to do this to the Ed  :scared:



Got this from TPS - Its GPS, FM, DAB and Phone - not used the Phone but run all the other cables, maybe sometime I'll get DAB



Eddie supplied this, having installed it all myself I have to say I wouldnt like to do it again and would make the journey and get Eddie to do it for me - worth EVERY penny of his time!!!! Loom run and camera fitted...



Fitted and working....



First time and it worked!!!

The aerial base is 6R0 035 501 A and the whip for that base is 6R0 035 849 A (cheers Dom  :happy2:) My original whip thread is too small for this base so make sure you get the whip too

Time for an update..

My drivers door was not opening on the remote so had to replace the door lock, bit of a pain in the bum but so much better to have it working. Took the opportunity to apply some sound deadening to the outerskin too.



Got some bits from TPS and made this loom up



Fitted into the door card



Coded and working - was not so impressed with the light output so ordered some LED versions from Boldsport

Boldsport goodies arrived - got the door card LED's and the rear/brake light replacement because I was working on something and needed to replace the normal bulbs with LED's to match what I was doing.



Door card with standard bulb - the pic makes the light output seem really bad - it aint great but not as bad as this pic makes out



LED's fitted to door card lights - amazing difference.



Genuine Edition 30 mats turned up on eBay so grabbed them. Used a whole can of carpet shampoo and a hot pressure wash and they have come up amazingly well!!
