Fair play, it's the only way when you are a pioneer worst case you can always sell the parts

That's lucky that the A5 caps are compatible with the A3. If this all works I'll have to be creative for the TT

Haha true bud maybe it’s my ego for a while I was the first I’ve heard of that fitted park assist (about 7-8 years ago) then the Bose and recently more people have been doing it so I needed a new challenge after the bcm and decent dab on the rnse I though I was done lol.

You'll never be done!

What DAB setup do you have out of interest?

In the middle of R&D’ing to see if blind spot assist is a possibility on my 8P and finally got around to changing my electric dumbo mirrors for fold up electric mirrors. Also put the sweeping indicator lens in too

I’m using a Dension DAB+U with a polo dab aerial tucked in behind a trim in the back. I got a connects2 phantom feed setup so the aerial works properly. But the result is the ami sees it as a usb but you can select the stations like you would on normal radio.

This week. Became increasingly pi$$ed off with my C/L fault and discovered a new fault with the driver's window. Really must get my butt into gear and fix it.

Got T boned by a spastic Uber eats cyclist who was to busy looking at his phone instead of where he was cycling to see me waiting at a junction

Think the ceramic coating on the car held up well compared to how bad it could have been but left me with a battle scar one front drover side wing

Cyclist was fine although he was shaken up after being bounced off the car

The most annoying thing about cyclists is they don't have any form of training and don't pay any kind of tax or insurance to use the road. A cyclist hits a car and the car driver suffers the cost! It's a ******* joke!

Mate at this point im happy he's ok and it wasnt a motorcycle cause ive had a dum **** on a naked bike loose it over a speed hump and rip the driver side of my Civic Type R funny enough waiting on the other side of that same junction .
Which he tell his insurance i pulled out infront of him whilst stationary and insurers decide to settle on a 50/50 without my consent
Im either gona sell the ******* car at this piont and buy a tank or move outa london

Yeah bud it’s the closest thing I could find to factory like dab. It’s essentially treated like a usb stick but the tracks are radio stations. When I get 5 minutes I want to strip apart the two shark fins and fit the dab aerial part to the standard fin if it’ll fit but things are manic at the minute.

That’s a delivery person not a cyclist. We cyclists spend everyday training not to get hit. Every time we ride, we train. Our formal training is not getting hit or hitting someone else. I pay enough taxes already so no need to pay more. From my viewpoint, car drivers have little formal training , distracted constantly and spend very little time scanning for bikes, people or motorcycles. Whatever your annoyance, we feel the same. Both of us have permission to use the road and both need to respect t each other. The delivery person was likely distracted as well. I always say no such thing as an accident. There is always a reason and it’s poor judgement. Sorry about the car

OK, so you'd consider it fair that if you'd been that cyclist/delivery rider/lycra leper/whatever you want to call him, you'd have gotten away without paying for the damage you had caused? Would you consider it fair if you had been on the receiving end in your car and had to pay for the repairs yourself knowing it wasn't your fault?
Somehow I don't think so.

Nah bud i hear you and i agree with ou there are some really good and thoughtful cyclist out there is just the dum careless ones that give the rest a bad name/rep plus i was just vented so i mean nothing by it its all love on here uber minicabs are also the same even some bus and lorry driver moving off without indiciation or check mirrors stopping in the middle of the road to check there phone thinking its ok to do it if they have there hazards on lol. I had to tell so many uber drivers rather then being an ignorant ***** and stopping in the middle of the road and causing traffic park in bay or single yellow with you hazards and they just stare back think huh i never though of that it makes sense some just look back blankly with no response

I do agree with this on the other hand atleast some form of insurance should be available if you cycling on the road otherwise stick to pavements lol

Without turning this into a political thing I do genuinely agree with this if people want to use the road then they should pay tax and insurance weather it be a car, motorcycle or a push bike. I also think they should be taught stuff like a red light means stop and general road etiquette but how do you enforce it

Rear headlight level sensor had been beeping at me for a few weeks... Was delightful every 5 seconds but 2hours under the car, lots of swearing it came off, with a slight bit of persuasion with a chisel since the screws had seized.

All done and now my headlights don't look at the floor.

So far absolutely nothing, not even driven it. Depending on the weather this weekend I may have a shot at sorting the driver's door wiring.

Had a nice little driven up to R Tech at 5.30am for the following works:
1. Walnut blast of intake/exhaust valves
2. Injector clean
3. Runner flap delete
4. Vis internals
5. Lots of Sauce ( stage 2+ and DSG mapping)

Niki who mapped the car half way through his test drive called phil who the mechanical side of things if my car had a aftermarket turbo on cause it went so well (proudly said nope with the biggest grin on my face lol).
Aparently even my injectors where spot on for the originals that came with the car actually running slightly more then standard and consistently.

End result is from a stage 1 @325 bhp and 346ft-lb of trq to a Stage 2+ with 390 bhp and 437ft-lb Trq and more smiles per gallon then ive ever had

Very pleased with the results
