So where were we. Oh yes, some things to show you, now that I found time to update this again :D

Even before I got the car, I have been wanting to do this thing as follows

Started removing things from the trunk











Time for some black love from 3M car wrap products





Started re-installing things





I love the quality of the cut



Reinstalled the OEM foam behind the plate



Much better



And some better shots

















Daytime pics will follow to show how nice it came out.

What is more, these were ordered, and arrived in my hands as well







But more on that later.

I have also started my question here and there, for the answer to my lowering questions - yes I know it is the second week since I bought this car, but you know how it is. LoL.

Cheers, more to come​

So, these were ordered and received



Had these inside









And a manual



Seems like i was a template from inside the box.
Not sure if it supplied with it though.
Thing is there is something weird about the footrest area.
We will get to that later.









It would be a bolt on, if it were like on my other cars, but here the plastic part to be replaced is missing, and the carpet in the area is like this





Not sure how I am gonna do it, but I will figure out how I guess sooner or later.

Took some time to put these on, especially the throttle one, where the clutch one needed to open some holes





Installed, look so good if you ask me





And I need to figure out how to make it look complete now

[FootRest just left to stay in place - not installed]



Cheers guys​

Went ahead and had a visit at Thule dealers in Greece



I just love this shop



Hmmm, what are these





Well these, are the black, all new edition



of these, that I run in my golf



With the black roof and all, I just had to buy these, you know me.

Boxes were opened















Excuse the iphone pics, proper pics to follow from my camera

Cheers​

Wanted this to be the practical daily, rather than the showcar or performance car, so sportback it is :)

Car got its first cleanup since I took it out the stealership







Car then got treated with CG EZ Glaze, and then some of SwissVax's finest, CRYSTAL ROCK for added protection and gloss, applied by hand.









Then I threw on the Thule box, to see how it looked. I was skeptical beforehand, thinking it would be big for this car. But boy was I wrong



Looked great, I loved it



Family meeting with Golf







And then with the other Audi









Ordered these from ebay, because the OEM aerial would not fit with box on, and because I like the clean look of it



Received them



Installed it asap





Car then got some snow time







[miss my Quattro system, I'll tell you that]

Received Some Black Audi Emblem Rings that I ordered from Germany



Great quality to be honest



So from this



To this



Removed rear one too

I was thinking to go for no badge at all, but at the moment, I installed the black one, which looks great and we shall see









I also ordered two rear-wiper-delete kits from gecleant.de, one for the A1 and one for the Golf, and waiting to receive those as well, to remove that rear wiper on the A1 as well.

In other news, I may or may not be toying with the idea of ordering this.



Let alone, having already ordered it, who knows.

Cheers

So, did my first trip. Fuel economy was out of this planet.



Even with the box on



Bought this for another project I have been thinking of



Before





Remove some plastics







Take that motor out



Oh look a hole



Plug that water pipe with a nice way



No hole anymore







Perfect fitment as expected



Looking really clean



Washed the car



I also received these



And also washed this one as well







I also had a photoshoot with the Audi, more to come soon





Cheers, more to come​
