    Again, I have some updates to show you. So, I sourced a pair of power folding mirrors, and heated as well. A nice retrofit i always wanted to do Apr_1 by mgpdoc, on Flickr Complete with the loom Apr_1 by mgpdoc, on Flickr Control unit Apr_1 by mgpdoc, on Flickr And thes ECUs Apr_1 by mgpdoc, on Flickr I will install them when i have some more time i guess Then, although i said i wouldnt do this, in this car as well, i fell for a set of cf mirror caps. I just had to Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Lost no time, and installed them Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr They came out great, amazing quality, and suit the car nicely. What is more, I purschased some LED facelift tailights. I already had LED ones which i like. But thes are also cool. I think i will keep both, lol. Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Car was very happy with its gifts . . . but more was to come . . . Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr I sourced some S-Line Sideskirts, german ebay is your friend sometimes. Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Only part missing Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Then, I ordered some more boxes from the dealership, this time it was the chassis-mounts for the sideskirts. These were new, and cost more than the sideskirts themselves. I also bought the fittings, and bolts. I wanted to do it right, or not at all. Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr From this Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr To this Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr So, i went ahead and decided to fit the mounts. As my car didnt come from factory with the S-Line parts, it did not have the guides, like studs, to where the mounts should sit. So i had to measure some things, and then bolt these on the car. It had double sided tape from factory, a very strong one. I used bolts in the 7 holes given, and also some adhesive glue in the flat contact points. In my opinion this is going nowhere. Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr Then the other side Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr I put them on without clipping them perfectly , because they need to be painted misano red Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr They came out awesome....in my opinion Side by mgpdoc, on Flickr

A change i had a long time coming, although i didnt accept it at first, lol. Like in every car i own, it was time to go custom . This is, how i was driving daily for a couple of months. Feb 18 by mgpdoc, on Flickr Everything was working, and nothing was scratched Feb 18’ by mgpdoc, on Flickr Feb 18’ by mgpdoc, on Flickr Like always, i removed the dashboard on my own, and re-installed everything again on my own.

Till this Xmas Here they are D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr I have opened many boxes with car parts, but there are few that i was excited like this time. I love these wheels. Inside the boxes, were also some stickers i custom ordered to spice things up a bit Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Rare Rims uk, Rota Dealers, delivered once again D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr Now that is what i am talking about D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr Specs are 8,5x17, ET35, 5x100pcd square fitment the blue beast was once again mad at me Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr After i threw the stickers on, time to mount them D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr Spacers on D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr Test fitting Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Dont know if i will be selling these, we shall see Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Damn so sexy D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr Currently running my 215.40.17 Kleber Krisalp IIs, but next seasons i will go for 225.45.17 which can be fitted, and are much cheaper and with no stretch on the 8,5 wheel D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr Threw them on, and installed center caps as well D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr First touchdown and i am in love Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Threw the lug nut caps, which are a pain in the ass to remove, to say the least, but they look tidy af, so they went on D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Fitment with the 215.40s D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr Went for a quicky shoot jut before rain and snow started, excuse the dirty car Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr D154s by mgpdoc, on Flickr Cheers

    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....
