I will very glad to see you there!!!!!!!!!!!!

My best lap so far with the gt is 1.34.2

Hoping for lower lap time in february.....
You MUST visit serres with the audi....
You really made an unbelievable job...
We will be in touch...
Very nice lap time you have achieved there. Well done.
Feel free to show us what you have done to your GT.

As for the audi, I doubt it will be ready by then, and even if so, it will be more likely to see it accelarate on the straight line with the power it will be pushing, hehe :)

Cheers :)

I do, but it is only sold locally, not like OMP, SPARCO, like I used to have in the past.
It is great quality though, and totally reconditioned after passing inspection in their shop once a year.

Maybe I will buy a LIfeLine kit for my Audi which will be racing more often in the future, but this one is great for my daily

So, a big update for the DaiLy_ProjeCt





First of all . . . I did some work on the wheels

Wheel Bolts



And tired hubs, had to go



Let's do work





Painted hubs satin black and new studs on





Dont forget this



Tidy



Wheels back on



Hmmmm much better







Love it



Now, some days later - Someone decided to hurt my car while I was away

The damage while beginning sanding it









Almost done sanding



Then attacked with the rotary, and these



Almost perfect





Very happy with that too.

Finally, my trim shop called me to collect the recaro parts that were ready . . .







Lost no time of course and installed them right there







Like it, is an understatement. Hope you like it too

Cheers guys

Well some more things into the DaiLy story.

it was time to go grab those beauties



Weather was not the best



but I did.



Then, the moment I loaded the seats into the car, two things happened.

1. The trunk lock, decided to go off. Thus not letting me close the trunk.
I was shocked that it decided to happen at that moment, when I had about 50km to go home with a lot of heavy rain. Anyway, I managed to make the trunk close safely, so as to drive home. Then . . .

2. The battery went dead when I tried to start the car. Feeling the mood there, dont you guys ? :rock:

Either the Golf was jealous of the Audi taking the seats, or a lot of bad energy from people when they saw the pic I uploaded being happy and all.

Oh well, either way, I started the car on my own, pushing it - and gear jump start always work like a treat. And made it to the stealership just in time, given it was Friday noon and grabbed a new one of these



Lost no time



Next to each other



And what do you know - it worked great again.

Then I went for a bigger 72 battery from Italy this time



Golf managed to get its gifts that day, truth be told. :love:

Then, given the heavy rains in greece, i decided to go for a winter setup that will allow me to move quicker in floods in greek roads if needed .

So . . . this happened . . .











looking pretty tough I must say . . . :love:





Stay tuned . . . more to come :D

Love this build thread, the attention to detail is amazing.

Do you get any rub from the Grids at all? I love the look, I'm just worried about pulling off the 18x9.5 fitment.

What did you do to your front bumper? The cut slats? Breaking ducts?
