No worries, I try to keep it low profile in Greece, didnt want to present it in any magazine I had the chance. I prefer to show the car in foreing fora around the world.
nice to find you here, Ελληνες υπαρχουν παντως οντως τελικα

So, another issue I wanted to address is to clean my leather interior a bit.

So I got armed with this new product from Andy @ Dazzle LTd



The results from cleaning were a bit more than impressive





Tomorrow I want to have another pass at them to further enhance their being soft and cared after, cause I want it to stay like new



On another note, I found a way to protect my alcantara steering wheel of my Audi, while not using it -



hmmmm....



LoL - works perfectly



-dont mind the floormat, it will be changed :p:p

Cheers

hey guys, I am happy you like it.

If anyone wants any things from the Golf, or the Audi too, let me know, I have tons of things in stock and no free space to put them these days. So I have more than 100 listings on ebay. Username is mikedoctor, so if anything , just let me know or look for yourselves.

Now let me upload another update, cause you seem to like it as much as I do . . .

Oem MKV Gti, Lower middle grille installed







So front end, is pretty much ok for now



So this car, has had some suspension setups in its life

1. OEM GT
2. GT shock absorbers with 50mm HR springs
3. Custom Bilstein PSS with HR custom springs
4. OEM MKV Gti suspension as it is today.


I wanted it to go a bit lower, so was thinking of getting back a set of HR springs for now. Yes it would be harsh, but I wouldnt take this to the track, I knew it was a not so politically correct setup, but hey, the absorbers have lived their life by now anyway. So for the last weeks I was in the look-out for some springs, and if nothing came up, I would buy some new ones . . .

Until today, that I went to another garage I have, to leave some Audi parts, and saw a HR box . . . Hmmmm...Could it be . . .



Well yes it could. I had totally forgotten the fact that I had not sold mine, and there they were . . . gave them a quick clean, and here they are lined up





So happy - and learned my lesson, to check for stock first - LOL

What if I were to leave the same suspension it was on.
OEM Gti suspension is great to have, especially for a daily driver.
I dont move by the must on the tuning scene. I move by my needs and wants

Either way, check the post above to see, how many setups this car has had till now.

So, where were we. Yes. I have some more updates to show you.

Found a new package on my passenger's side this morning



I had to see what's inside it



yeaaaaaah, cf mirrors - whole replacement caps of course, not silly sticky covers





Before



And after





Again before, epic drawing, hell yeah



After



Really subtle and nice modification, I think :)





I have some more to show you



uploading pics later on :)

Cheers :)

So, while the car was in the family, my father had done a Xenon conversion with a 6000K kit, looking something like this





it was not bad at all, plus it was nice, but, being me, I wanted something different, something that had an Audi touch in it, so . . . this happened



And then this





yeap, that's more like it now, Audi's little brother is out there :)

And on another note, I had this bothering me, on the center console



So yes, correct guess, bought a new part from the stealership





I will propably wait to find a new climatronic unit, and fit them both at the same time.

Cheers :)

So, one of the first things I ordered for the Golf was the set of smoked side repeaters for the mirrors. However it has been a while, and they were nowhere to be found, until today, that they arrived at last.



Along with another box for the Audi project





More on that on the Audi build thread.

Let's see the repeaters here

Really nice quality and finish







Passenger's side first



Removed the crystal mount as well, no need for that



New and damaged one, side by side



Test twice, bolt once



All done



Driver's side too



Subtle and classy, and fresh at last





Cheers, more to come

Yes I most certainly do.
I am warning you though. It is dangerous to begine reading it.

I have it on many places, Audizine, E38, VagOC, Detailing World, StanceNation.

One of the easiest to read, and that does not require registration, is the one of Detailing World, so let me give you that one

So a new box arrived today

It had some things for the golf, like a new AEM filter



and some hoses to fabricate a new CAI



Some very cool Polo shirts





It also had some things for the Audi though

like my new longer studs which will be needed for the forthcoming spacers



And this lovely thing







But that is not all.

Having removed the muffler from the A4, I did not want to sell it, cause I like it too much. So . . . this happened . . .

Previous exhaust setup



Me no likey



Let's cut it



Bye Bye



Hmmmm....



What if . . .



Let's cut what gets in the way





Testing



Exhaust hanger



Guess which is the new work and which one the old



Let's move on.

I lost no time, and wanted to go a bit wider on the car. I opted for 245.40.18 like I was running on my Audi. For now at least.

So i took my old R888s and some Vredesteins for the front, and threw them on the car.

let me guide you with pics

bye bye 225.40



Hello wideness







-yeah yeah, I got this

Fitment was spot on on the rear



`And took some . . . love on the front to sit like I wanted it with no rubbing







Brought them tires home safely - lol



Car sat pretty much perfectly











Cheers, more to come :)
