Seems all good at the moment and doesn't sound massively different to the K&N that was in there before

Bit of an update had to have a new clutch fitted in the spring after one of the pressure plate springs broke free doing this to the inside of the box Shocked 
Thankfully no serious damage was done

Think I got my use out of these they were EBC green pads believe it or not! Disc all cleaned up ready to for caliper and pads to go back on, and all built up:D

Decided to finally try and sort out the dented rear panel after a bit of attacking with a DA I was left this gave it a de rusting etc then a first skim

after the first rub down and primed(still in primer at the mo)

Got a couple of low spots to sort then I can get it finished hope fully, got a stainless mongoose golf gti system for a steal and reinstated one of the silencers as the noise from the exhaust was getting too much for me and my neighbors!

This brings me up to the last couple of weeks finally fitted some powdercoated splash guards I'd had for ages and also changed the alternator and ps belts and fitted the powder coated brackets for the ps pump

As I'm getting older and I use this daily having solid/poly engine mounts was becoming too much so Ive swapped out the poly gearbox one for OEM G60 one which has made things a lot nicer/smoother.

I also found out about this stuff called Pro XL Pro Tex for retexturing plastics from a guys build on club gti, I'd been using Auto Finesse Revive every couple of months but wanted something more permanent so far Ive done the door trims and one of the front arches and can say I'm well impressed looks almost like the OEM finish

Thought I should update things things after six months! After the Mot expired at the end of September last year I decided to pull the car off the road as I had the use of a van for work, The intention was to fully sort it out before spring! as with all good plans this didn't happen Sarah's Bora had been in need of attention for some time so most of my time and money has gone into that recently pale 
Anyway I made a start repainting the wheels before Xmas, I faffed about trying a few colours and decided on Audi aluminum silver in the end here's the first one

After this I didn't touch it for nearly three months till the end of Feb! When it came round to getting her fired up she was misfiring badly I new I had a cracked dizzy cap so I swapped that out for a new one as well a new rotor arm which changed sweet fa, so then checked the plugs  Shocked

Think this might be the cause of it running rough Rolling Eyes also decided to change the ht leads at the same for some 10mm ones for an extra 0.00001bhp Laughing

Now it was running somewhere near right I pulled my finger out slightly and started on the front wheels in preparation for new tires

In colour waiting to be laquered

Which brings things up to this Saturday just gone when it went for its Mot which thankfully it passed!  Very Happy  had a few advisories but nothing major, was thinking of going slightly lower but after seeing it on the brake rollers think it might be low enough!!!

After seven months its finally road legal again, still got a list of things to do as long as my leg but hey ho most important is its useable again Very Happy
Cracked out some polish at the weekend when I was washing my mountain bike, If only the paintwork looked as good in real life as it does in this picture I'd be a happy bunny
