Hi

Just thought I would post a little update! So not long been back from my hols and my car was not finished as promised but that's another story.

So the blue-flame purchased from the forum, finally got installed. It sounds sad but I enjoyed watching the guys put it on. In honesty I was also scared when the blow torch came out lol. I asked them to remove the exhaust shield as this was rattling above 3K. I am happy with the end product although I still need to go back to have the heat shield at the rear sorted as the vibration is killing me.

So when it was up on the ramps i asked how good laser alignment was? The chaps said it was the best system for checking your set up and wow I was shocked! I had this adjusted without delay.

So then came the Mat-front grill. Not sure why really but I decided for the stealth Mat finish. What do you think?

When this was finished the bottom 3 grills looked silly so they got painted as well.

The looking at the wheels I noticed the centre caps looked tatty. So i took them off and started to play. I removed the Audi Circles and thought they would look good Mat. So i re-sprayed the centres silver and the rings Mat. I think they look well.

Hi Mate

Cheers.

Your telling me, my cash flow is running low. All started with a new bumper thanks to a waitrose van reversing into me the day I left for my hols. The forum is a life saver as the bumper has come from the forum also.

The best result has to be the re-trim. Hoping to do some kind of forum discount because everyone who has seen them so far thinks there great. Just waiting for the steering wheel to match lol but that's hand stitched job so it will have to wait until my visit to Wak has happened.

Mate you have no idea. Great item, great price, great delivery, small repair. Life saver. Thanks again.
