Fair enough ,thanks anyway

Bought these but insurance people won't accept them on my insurance so debating whether to get another set of oe rims or stick with the bolero

Definitely one of the best things I've bought for any of my cars , and I've bought some random stuff over the past few years

Will get the snub bracket and apikol bushed diff mount fitted next couple of days

Have discovered I need new gearbox mounts ,so they will get done when I fit the ttv flywheel and rs4 clutch

Should be getting bootlid, s4 rear bumper ,s4 skirts and door trims painted next couple of weeks just waiting on friend to finish his spray booth

I Want to get a fmic next but unsure what I want/need

More soon

How do you find your centre arm rest as I find my Record squeaks against the drivers bolster. A tad annoying, need to investigate when I get a few mins

Where do people get decent quality oil pumps from ?
Going to pull the engine and box out and do clutch and oil pump at the same time ,is there anything else worth doing while I've got the lump out ?
Cheers mike

Made a boost gauge pod :smiley:

Came out looking alright , not to happy with how the gauge works though , seems very slow to respond with boost and vac ( doesn't snap back like it should ) which is strange considering it's a pucker gauge
:/
