I put a bulb in this the other day, £4.07.
The most I have spent on actual maintenance on a car ever.
Despite ignoring it the car needs a rear wheel bearing, the flywheel squeals, the front discs are worn out and the pads are low.
So I am going to order some coilovers for it to see if this...
It still looks like this.
I haven't done a single thing to it for months, other than clean it.
I have decided to keep the diesel, after a bit of debating. So I am going to fit a clutch and get it mapped, then run it along side a track car.
No, 8P has the oil temp on the DIS.
PRE FACELIFT ONLY 8L's had it as part of the climate by pressing the bottom right and top right buttons then using the temp buttons to cycle through. It showed live engine data too.
I've gone for some serious machine polishing today which has really really helped. But it is still a little bit peely.
My old car wasn't an S3, just a lowly FWD A3, although modified to a very high standard. Even so, total chalk and cheese against the 8P.

Jumped in the back and cleaned all the glass, and applied...
This is a slightly weird response, but basically sorry I have been so quiet over the last couple of weeks. I've literally been on the verge of a heart attack, with average blood pressure averages exceeding 174/111 for two weeks constant. So I've not be able to really do...
Thanks for the kind words.
So Angel Wax is my new product of choice, very easy to work with, very easy to get hold of and well priced.
I have used samples of all the products and been very happy with them. So have upped to full size.
There are a couple of products here which are new to me...
Sorry. I didn't see your reply!
More on paintwork wizardry later.
On Tuesday I threw away every car product I own, my old kit bag, everything.
All I kept was a small tub of Crystal Rock, a tub of Desirable, a tub of Dark Angel and a tub of HD Wax.
New kit bag ordered, and a trip to the...
Got the car back from the body shop today.
Front and rear bumpers resprayed, bonnet resprayed and a scuff on the rear arch machine polished and a dent pulled.
I stripped off the anniversary wax, and hand applied Dark Angel which was supplied by Mark at Brotek.
I really really like...
