Thanks mate! There's always something more to add. ;)

A big upgrade would be new injectors and new 18'' wheels. Maybe next year, I don't know...

Thank you for your comments!

What wheels would you suggest? I'm looking for 2nd hand (but in good condition) OEM wheels, or new from good aftermarket brands like from Rotiform or 3SDM, for example. Not looking for replicas.

At the moment I like the Audi TT-RS titanium rotor wheels, the Rotiform NUE and the 3SDM 0.01 and 0.06.

My budget can go up to 1000 £, I think. Not sure if I can find a good set for much less.

I also can't lower my suspension more or I won't be able to enter most underground parking lots. As it is I already rub my front spoiler very easily.

Cheers

Very nice looking car, I think it would benefit from a little lowering to compliment your valances

Thank you for your comment! It already has Eibach Pro-Kit -35 mm that give excelent ride quality and a good dynamic feel with the Koni FSD shocks. Not sure if I had the new shocks fitted when I took those pictures, but the angle from the rear side picture doesn't do good justice to the actual stance. The front spoiler already rubs easily everywhere. :signLOL:

Next week I'm going to get the HEL braided front brake lines fitted, replacing the OEM oil with ATE's SL.6 DOT4. Then if all goes as planned, the warning door lights and the cluster should be in place by September, 6th. :jumping:

Thanks! What pictures are you after? The position of the front sensors or how they look in the RNS-510 while working?

For the rear sensors my friend (who's the expert in doing these mods) used the holes from the previous generation parking sensors. He had to remove the ring from the previous sensor support that covers the rest of the hole, since the new sensors use smaller holes. If I didn't have already rear sensors it would have been an easier job. Just drill an hole in the appropriate place and glue the sensor inside the bumper.

I would like to see the position of the front sensors, and also the look on the rns. Do you have some blind spots with the sensors, if you know what i mean?

I don't have those pictures available at the moment but I can tell you that we copied the position from the late Golf Mk5 Variant, that had them fitted from factory. The 2 sensors on the black grill needed to be refitted almost 1 inch above because they were sensing the floor. For that I needed to buy a new grill. That's what can happen when you're doing mods for the 1st time with no DIY.  :signLOL:

There are no blind spots, the sensors have a good range and are placed, like I said before, in the same spots like the wagon has.

The image on the RNS-510 is the same as in a Mk6 hatchback. It all works 100%. I bought the retrofit kit from carsystems.pl.

I'll take some pictures this weekend for you.

Cheers
