      Been doing way to much of this to work on the car. My worn out bumper clips piss me off.. my torn ass seats piss me off.. my suspension pisses me off. However! Things are poppin, I've finally met some car gurus that know what they are doing. I've got some things planned. But, I probably won't have any pictures up until the car is sitting proper.

      Hope everyone elses show season is going well!

      I hate how these bumpers mount. I wish there was an easy way to mod the bumper to bolt on the sides instead of clipping in. Ever since I done the FrankenTurbo upgrade on my A4, I havent put the bumper back on due to the mounting and trimming of the fmic.

      Well, my thread sucks still. Picked up a set of ml320 wheels w/tires for cheap the other night and went "mehhh...maybe I'll run these sometime" Next day I found a set of a8 pie plates for $65 on craigslist...too say the least the old timer had no idea what he had. I love craigslist. Happy Thanksgiving to me.



      There was so much road grime on them. Could use a good polish for sure.



      Studded snow tires and wheel gap like a mother****er



      Had a little run in with a few chickens in the middle of nowhere kansas a few months ago and broke my grill/windshield/center bumper grill.

      In the process of making bumper grills from allroad mesh. Probably should invest in some bumper clips and redo my lamin-x'ed headlights while I'm at it.

      Edit...I need coilovers. So so bad.

      I never really used my side mirrors once I got my wink mirror so I took them off and made some filler plates. Not everyones thing but I kinda like it.

      I like the idea of the wink mirror, but i think it clutters things up. Have you gotten in any trouble for no side view mirrors?

      A8 sewer caps.

      I wish I found mine for $65! haha I still got them for a deal, but $65 would have been way better.

      Sewer caps? Meh, I can't keep names straight. I'm so tempted to polish them and polish my roof rack cross bars to match.

      Someone suggest me a wheel color. Green is tricky to work with.

      Weird. I was actually thinking cream too. Maybe a metallic brown? That ipanema brown that comes on some of the newer tt's and s5's is pretty sick.

      DO NOT PAINT THOSE WHEELS!

      I have never seen them look good painted, unless you paint them a silver like Nic did with his set. Just take the time this winter and polish them I promise, you won't regret it.

      Depending on the shape of the wheel (if curb damage, start with 220 grit paper), go 400, 600 - dry, 800, 1000, 1500, 2000 - wet. Then polish them with a quality aluminum polish. I bought mine off a trucker website for $9, it seals and polishes, very good stuff.

      Painting one wheel just to see how it looks. I'll post pictures when it's finished.

      Car is getting buffed and waxed by myself right now, never done it before so I'm still learning.

      It looks so much better already, but at the same theres loads of rock chips that stand out alot more now..

      Thats because you probably have wax in the chips…I use to have the same issue until I got the front end repainted.
