What is the red arrow on the back, underneath the passenger tail light?

Looks great! I'd totally drive that car if it was an option here in the US.

Looks nice, but not the style i am going for to be honest.
I am more into Oz or BBS i think like in my other cars.
An option like my Rota Grids like i have on the golf, are not out of the question either

Cheers

Mike

Yes i agree
From what i can see fronts in the pic are 8,5 and rears are 9,5
Are they 18 or 19?

I like square fitment more to be honest

Not sure if I have written it in here. But one thing that has bothered me since day one, that i got the car, even from the dealership, is the red colour of the vents in the interior. I guess I am more of a subtle guy, and that much red really hurt my eyes to be honest. Seemed kinda cheap for my tastes.

So. I had to do something about that as you can tell.
I was thinking either piano black vents, or chrome/alu ones.
Decided to go for the piano black ones.



Removed the red ones.



Only tools I used are my hands to be honest.
Despite the ELSA, and some youtube tutorials saying I need some special tools.



Red ones are already for sale over at ebay. Listing [301572869279]









Time to install the black ones



Happy me







Before



and after



So that's done. Happy with it :D :D

Cheers guys

Mike

The piano black vents help so much. I agree with you, that red was too much.

The black looks way better. The red ones are almost a bit childish.

Nice, my preference those would be more of a matte finish, the gloss has a very distinct notice me vibe, which is something I wouldn't want from my air vents.

The matte ones are the cheapest ones available, and have no chrome on the inner rings, thus i dont prefer them for the interior.
Otherwise i am more of a satin guy myself like you said

So what do you know. I have some updates for the AUD1ESEL. I already love this car, and it is becoming more and more mine every day :D

Tint time -



Again went for the 3M CS-35, like I have in all my other cars, and in the family cars as well, throughout the years





Classical protection for the window switches for a couple of days LoL



Driver side on



Some exterior shots











Dat Logo Doe



Another thing I did, is that I decided to tackle the footrest issue.
I had to find a way to make it work

Took some measurements



And I made it happen

So here is a big update for the little AUD1ESEL

Came to the garage one day to find one seat missing . . .



Then this happened



Out of nowhere





Dont worry, I was just checking something



Hmmmm



LoL on the Golf



Then changed back everything the way it was

Next to this, i still prefer mine





Then, let's move to the interior

I like how these climate controls look



This does not suit them



New boxes from stealership



Yummy parts









Let's remove the stock one





Out



in it went



porn





Tools needed





Turned out great





More to come, to bring you up to date

Cheers
