The rear light mod looks great!

Keep up the hard work

Hi all...another little update I have not been a fan of the gear knob and gear gaiter for some time firstly. The gear knob is worn secondly. The gear gaiter is rubbish I don't think it's even leather or maybe a cheap one at that...so looked at the edition 30 gear knob that was good but the gear gaiter came with the same low quality leather so scraped that idea not paying close to £200 for that...so been doing some ebay hunting and found this from a 2010 Audi A3 s line sport-back nice gear knob and a high quality gear gaiter..

hi all another update ..decided to install a boost gauge..I wanted something Oem looking so went for a vent gauge pod. The nice thing is that  it's a vw genuine item. So to go with that a Newsouth performance Boost gauge I do like these gauges and they match the dash lighting perfect also brought the APR Boost Tap with the anti-buzz kit. it comes with everything you need and makes the fitting so straight forward.

Fitting it wasn't the easiest, well just removing the old turbo inlet on my own was a mission. All good now thing is very loud, have to give it a few days to see how it feels. Can't wait to see what else u get up too.

hi all... nice day yesterday so decided to get myself in the garden. Had a parcel arrive a couple of days ago a R32 style lower rear valance so i wanted to test fit it and drill more holes if necessary. Well i did need to drill some more holes like i thought.  But it's a good fit and it's abs plastic which i wanted not that fiberglass rubbish also came with the reflectors which are a perfect fit....another great ebay find..dropping it off at the body-shop tomorrow for painting fingers crossed back in a couple of days...

hi all...I did say i was not going to buy anything else. Being so close to Christmas but. I am rubbish so decided to spend a few penny's. I've being looking for a while for a Intake heat shield ever since i got my ram-air induction kit..anyway PSI tuning do a CTS Heat Shield so decided to go with that one fitting was straight forward and a perfect fit.

And last of all decided to upgrade the rear boot handle/release to the mk6 golf 3D Badge looks much better it only arrived today so have not fitted it yet but here it is....

Is the Mk6 rear boot badge a straight fit? Do you get to the Mk5 boot badge behind the plastics in the boot?  :rolleye:

Hi...yeah the the boot badge/release is a direct fit the only difference is the connection plug on the back is on the other side....simply loosen the cable and attach on the other side easy....

To gain access to the back of the badge/release to have to remove the tailgate plastic ........hope this helps.
