    Nice day in the sun today and got some little jobs ive been meaning to do for a while, finally finished off the calliper refurb and got the brembo stickers on. 0389548D-F3F6-4FA5-944C-406A55DACFA4.jpeg
    Then i got abit adventurous and fancied re-trimming the A pillars with black.
    I can happily say what a ball ache this was! But once they were out it was nice and easy. Happy with the result for a DIY job, just makes me want to do the roof lining even more.

    To come in future will be new discs and pabs i think. And if anyone knows anyone with an exhaust going ill be happy to look at buying
    Also copped a little carbon fiber cover for the engine bay 373E1B06-9B78-4F92-B607-764616C9D33E.jpeg

    @Pav literally just some black cotton. I was going to go with the Alcantara/suede vibe but went to the shop and they didnt have any. And for £4 i thought why not give it a go! Stuck them on with some adhesive which the woman said worse case scenario adhesive remover will bring them back standard again

    Grand job with the A-pillars, something I've thought about since I got rid of my old A3 S-line with full black interior, just something a little sleeker about it!

    Don't know where you are but there's a KTR exhaust on here for a 197 in the classifieds. Get sorted with membership for a fiver and you'll see it. Well worth it just for the How-to guides alone.

    So little update:

    Car has been in for a health check....
    Both ball joints have gone so car is booked in for 3 weeks time,
    Also discovered a spring has bust so looking to get some new springs to lower it while im at it!

    Also purchased some akropavic exhaust tips. Cosmetic only but i love the look of them. Definitely freshens up the look of the back end compared to the slash cuts! 9BD75E8F-67D7-4948-888F-D38BCECCF139.jpeg 780A6A67-B582-442E-8FD9-660ED9D7AE2B.jpeg
