sam's Bora TDI

Post by samdub on Tue Nov 17, 2009 10:49 pm

Well I'm back home now so I've put my Bora back on the road.

I had a little intro on here when I first joined and now I'm changing the bora a little so here goes:

All I had done to it was a remap up tp just short of 140bhp as it was a motorway mile muncher when I was at Uni. 50mpg FTW!!!

Thing is it was stood for 8 months so I had a few issues over the weekend to nail:

+ Cracked windscreen - New one fitted saturday (pennies = ouch!)
+ New 'Aero' Wipers
+ ABS Fault - the 2 green fuses on the battery top needed cleaning thats all (common problem)
+ Water leaking from radiator - fitted a new one yesterday
+ New APEC Discs and pads - fitted all round, changed and bled the fluid
+ Shabby grey cloth interior -Bought a new black recaro interior which is half fitted now, just the door cards to do tomorrow
+ 'Fogged' offside headlight unit - sourced some units from an '04 bora being broken and fitted them along with some xenon bulbs
+VAG twin tone horn replacements fitted as the old ones packed up

I'm fitting an iPod connection kit and Parrot Bluetooth kit at the moment and then will make a start on reconditioning these 18" wheels I used to roll it on:

Here are some pics of the poor state they are in:

Today I hid indoors as it pissed it down pretty much all day until I finished which is typical:

Coliovers fitted and lowered but not all the way as I need to give it a good run so it all settles before I set the final ride height with the 18's.... so it doesn't look quite right yet.

Its made a huge difference and I'll couple it to a strut brace when that turns up. Just need a dry day to lacquer the wheels now. It will go lower...
