also got a set of futuras but cant find any pics, these are in a bad way (all but one finished) so still got some work to do on these to do before they will be seeing tyres.

ok- So going to miss quite a few bits out but as said above i will try come back and edit them in at a later date. Its all normal stuff, eg. install pics of most of list above regarding mounts,tint, rcd510, exhaust.... but all things we have seen time and time again. The car has always been maintained and looked after thoroughly, with an oil change every 15/20,000klm along with cam follower changes and break ,maintenance.
She is sadly getting into the high mileage category at 115000klm. Not crazy but when you buy her new and she goes past that 100k mark it makes her feel old. Belt is yet to be changed and high on the "to do list".
Never had any issues with it - touch wood- other than standard stuff. Faulty coil pack and at that time i upgraded to the Audi RS4 ones and have been going strong ever since. Replaced both disks, fronts twice. Always used oem pads. I have had the Forge DV since I went stage one as that was something that gave way almost in an instant, never had any issues since, just the odd service once in a blue moon.
Had all four wheel bearings replaced about 6 months ago. Got one issue with the airbag light that i have never figured out but that's just being lazy on that topic. Its the passengers side seat that is the issue and a common fault just like i say never got round to sorting it out. The only other thing i can think of was my lamb sensor went bad and had to replace that at quite an expense for just a wire. Other than these few things i have had great luck with the car seeing its an 07 and i have always read a few horror storys but thankfully for me no such bad luck. Reason I still have my car, never felt the need to replace it and it still puts a smile on my face every day I drive it. Put so much time and money in I'm not sure I will ever sell..(figure of speech really but yet to see)
