And GTI front and rear door cards for the openair, speaker grills all round.

Have you got a link for the auto headlight switch? And is it a bugger getting the sensor somewhere it can see daylight as that's what has put me off doing it!

use the light sensor from a mk4 golf climatronic unit.

if you find one from a lupo you will already have it installed tastefully in factory plastic.

as for Goodridge hoses, the lines are stainless, the ends aren't. In a few years you will be wishing that you had bought some Hel ones instead.

Thanks rich, I'll have a look around for the light sensor, that's the one that sits in the front vent isn't it?

Nobody makes a kit for the allroad :( but goodridge did a special order from etka drawings and have made the fittings from stainless.

Have you ever worked on an allroad? If so can I quiz you please?

yes front vent, fortunately that bit it is not lhd or rhd specific.

Alvaro has one on his car.

isn't an allroad just a quattro platform?

Alvaro? I'll have to see how it's wired.

Yeh basically it's an a6 Quattro with air suspension, I need to replace the auxiliary fan, the 210mm one, and it's a pain in the arse by the looks of things.

The n/s/f suspension bag wasn't to bad to change though.

sounds like you're going to have to strip the front off if you can't play the wiggle game.

just be methodical, take the wheels off and filter the coolant back in.

if you're lucky it will be sunny.

It's just the air con fan, no coolant hoses :) the fan literally fixes to the back of the rad I think
