    Then, I started removing stuff . . . Updates by mgpdoc, on Flickr Updates by mgpdoc, on Flickr Updates by mgpdoc, on Flickr Updates by mgpdoc, on Flickr Had some trouble removing the radio main unit - needed some metallic specific tools to pull it out . . . however i came up with this that i broke of a pen, hehe Updates by mgpdoc, on Flickr All done Updates by mgpdoc, on Flickr Also removed the main tunnel console for further changes Updates by mgpdoc, on Flickr Pile of parts got bigger and bigger Updates by mgpdoc, on Flickr Resulting in this going out and.....yeah you guessed it, it will be retrimmed . . . Updates by mgpdoc, on Flickr Also, I managed to source some gunmetal 19mm plastic caps for the lug nuts Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Much better Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr And also modified the audi tool i have for taking them out- shortened it to be able to get in there Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Then I decided to work on the bumper, and make the loom retrofit to activate the rear parking sensors which i was a bit bored to do Updates by mgpdoc, on Flickr We did the whole retrofit however, we did not manage to activate the optical thing on the MMI Updates by mgpdoc, on Flickr I hope we manage to at ome point, cause i love that. I now just have the audio warning, with the music volume going down and all, but not the visual thing Had another roadtrip on the countryside Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Ofcourse, having the dashboard apart like this, was an opportunity i couldnt pass on. I had the chance of changing all the interior light in clear white, instead of red, like on all the new audis. So, time for that, not easy, i can tell you. You have to take out all of the door cards for instance, just for one window switch, etc etc. . . . While i was there, we retrofitted a new dome light with leds from factory that i had for some time now, and also ordered a new one for the rear "seats". pics to follow Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr OEM one out, and rewiring ready to be done WhiteLed by mgpdoc, on Flickr WhiteLed by mgpdoc, on Flickr I removed all 4 door cards Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Various parts where switches and lights are hidden Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr WhiteLed by mgpdoc, on Flickr WhiteLed by mgpdoc, on Flickr We also changed from red leds to white on the new dome light WhiteLed by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr This was the hardest to dissasembly Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr UpDates by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr WhiteLed by mgpdoc, on Flickr Now that's what i like WhiteLed by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Oem leds and reading lights WhiteLed by mgpdoc, on Flickr Ambient light changed from red to white WhiteLed by mgpdoc, on Flickr Bluetooth microphones wired as well UpDates by mgpdoc, on Flickr WhiteLed by mgpdoc, on Flickr UpDates by mgpdoc, on Flickr Ordered this for the rear Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Will put everything together when the dashboard is ready from the trim shop and will take nice pics More updates to follow, uploading them as we speak Cheers

    Another thing i ordered is some proper Recaro Subframe seatmounts for my car, since the ones i had were Recaro again, but for an Audi R8 it seems. Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Proper quality as always Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Octoberfest by mgpdoc, on Flickr Installing the mounts is a bit tricky. You need to unbolt some framing off the oem seats, and u use it in between the chassis and the Recaro frames. As always pics will do the talking. I used completely new hardware everywhere and blue loctite to be safe like i have done in the past in my other cars Part from oem seat needed, practically the slider Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Start combining the two Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Remove old Recaro mounts Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Clean canvas Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Test fitting the new ones Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr New bolts on side frames Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr And ready to test fit Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Dont forget Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Looking much better and much safer Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr The car also had its programmed maintenance schedule Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Oil, Oil Filter Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Front and rear pads although they did not need to be changed Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Seat mount and pads by mgpdoc, on Flickr Wish I had the time to install the Porsche calipers someday though....

    So, truth be told i was pushing my luck somewhat Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr In the past i entered the sea with the Cherokee pretty ofter at this particular spot. However . . . This is not a Jeep Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Got pulled out by a family car, but not without my pride and my car being hurt as well. AC radiator got pushed by the bad Darkside IC installation probably, and also, wheels were scratched from the rocks at the beach. Had no Ac for the next days, and scratched wheels, oh well Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr On my way back home, at a highway parking Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Got back to Athens, and lost no time First AC radiator replacement, and new mounting points and brackets for the IC, properly this time, and not like my half-ass job on a bad product Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr All done and I love how the new BEHR Ac Radiator is silver instead of black Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Looks mean Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Temporary Audi wheels while mine were sent to be painted Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gave it a proper wash Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Do these wheels make it look like a Renault or is it just me Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr I also ordered this Powerflex mount - Diesel Specific - To reduce engine movement which was getting frustrating especially after the track visit. It increased vibration, but reduced movement like it should Powerflex by mgpdoc, on Flickr Oem Powerflex by mgpdoc, on Flickr Powerflex by mgpdoc, on Flickr And then wheels were ready I opted for a change to see how it would look. I normally like to keep my cars in a two tone theme. And this is no exception, it was red and black. However, i thought I'd give it a go on something rather different. So. . . Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr This is what I came up with Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr First time on the car Gunmetal by mgpdoc, on Flickr Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gunmetal by mgpdoc, on Flickr They sure look bigger Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr To be honest at first i couldnt get used to it but the more i saw it the more i liked it Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr Threw on some Rota caps in Gunmetal which I ordered from UK again Gunmetal Wheels by mgpdoc, on Flickr And the box as well Summer by mgpdoc, on Flickr Car is currently away on vacation mode, seeing some dusty roads and beaches Summer by mgpdoc, on Flickr Summer by mgpdoc, on Flickr Cheers Summer by mgpdoc, on Flickr Mike
