Just had a read of this thread for the first time. Nice to see lots of attention going towards a TDI! I like the OEM tidyness of the modifications.

Didn't realise you were local-ish also. Keep an eye out for a grey Lupo TDI up and down the a19!

Ill be keeping the deets a secret until i have everything ironed out.. which will probably be a little bit because i need to buy a pair of new headlights and i'm broke.

A little bit of wonder and intrigue never hurt anyone :thumbsup:

All i'll say is that the OEM lights are sealed with permaseal which makes them a right pain to open. I've test fitted and fired up one of the projectors and its alright, i wasn't expecting much but for £60 so i'm not complaining.

Aside from that i got my hands on a set of GTI pedals.

Quick polish and they're good as new

Excuse the filthy mat :sweating:

How did you get these on as I can't get my clutch one on

Well its been a while but i've been fairly busy.

Tidied up some wiring and coded in cruise control

Fully rewired the neons with tyco amp connectors and automotive grade multicore wire

And the biggest (and most expensive) thing, no more rusty arches :thumbup:

Had them rolled up flush with the outer skin for a bit better fitment and with the 20mm spacers they don't scrub anymore. Still not the best fitment in the world but its got a much better stance at the rear.

I'll finish this instalment with the obligatory reflection shots :thumbsup:

I had the dash out to try a couple of experimental things, didn't really work out but it gave me great access to the wiring loom :lol:

The alloys really are letting the side down but i think i'll try to get my mitts on some new centre caps then a lick of paint, then they'll be minters

Saving up for bumper resprays now, rear upper bumper is atrocious and the front isn't much better, going to go with the black magic pearl for the front lower valance.

Cheers guys, really appreciate it, trying to keep things somewhat oem and clean. I was trying to work out how to light it, the thought crossed my mind of making up a plexiglass spacer for the sub and lighting that. Hiding the lights in the rear panels just looks cleaner. 

I've got the lights wired to my neons at the moment but there's some more Bluetooth controllers on the way so I can run them independently
