the teeniest of mods - tinted the side markers to match rest of the car. Excuse the dirt! Shitty U.K. weather road grime build up. Giving it a clean next week before starting work on the btcc kit paint and installation!

Been off roading lol.. That's filthy. Is it just me or is a part of alloy missing from the pick just below "far" on the tyre.

Car maintenance day part 1 today.. started late and forgot to take pics of everything as was freezing cold! It’s MOT week so thought I’d change all filters / oil top up / oil drain. Also believe I have a thermostat issue as when I put the heating on the temperature starts to drop down to 70 and it is also taking a long time for the car to hit 90 in mornings. Will therefore be doing a thermostat change this week along with coolant flush.

also going to potentially go and collect some Audi 18” alloys tomorrow to get refurbed in a custom colour - let me know what you think of them! Working on the body kit too so stay tuned for the small make over✅

Don’t worry about the oil being black, the oil will go black after 100 miles in a diesel. It’s normal
😂 wasn’t too worried mate I know it is normal for diesel cars oil engine to get dirty quickly and it doesn’t mean there’s issues internally either - cheers though

Proper nice alloys them mate, any specific colour in mind for them?

cheers mate I do love them myself, all I’m going to say is it’s in the complete opposite direction of all the conventional gloss blacks etc... let’s see if I can pull it off😩

thanks buddy can’t wait to share the aftermath should be pretty special 👊🏻

Swapped out the old seats for some Cupra’s.. did want the face lift cloth or leather but honestly couldn’t be bothered to wait around for some to pop up as well as the right price especially with the leathers we are usually talking major 💰
Honestly love the shape of the seats great back support and also a much better feeling when driving! Can definitely feel more relaxed and comfortable now especially when taking corners as you can just sit back into the seats.
will be giving the seats a wet vac this week as well as a good exterior wash as it’s filthy.

A4 Wheels refurbished and finished in a custom 2 way colour ( blue and purple) flip.. I call this Oblivion 🤩 believe it contrasts the car quite well but also goes alongside the chameleon windscreen tint perfectly.. not to everyone’s taste of course but it works from my POV.. can’t wait to get them on! Took a good 5 hour sanding down the old runs on the front and don’t get me started on the backs as they was awful! The paint was stuck solid so turned out to be a right pain but nevertheless was sanded down best as they could!
