Swapped out some of the old rusted serrated flange nuts on the forward wishbones that I'd seen a few weeks ago during the cv joint replacement at Shaks with some nice new ones and at the same time thought I would have a clean round the wheel arches, surprised how easily the years of grime came off although there are still a lot of road tar spots but still much better than it was ;) ;)

2nd year of tt ownership completed yesterday, can't believe how quickly time is passing, a few more jobs done during that time as listed below,

Strut brace chromed
LED sidelights fitted
Pipewerx turbo back exhaust fitted with sports cat
1st remap at Unicorn Motorsport Development
Forge FMIC installed and headlight washers replaced
Alarm siren replaced
V6 rear valance fitted
Battery replaced
Throttle Body removed, cleaned and refitted
Oz Ultraleggerra wheels and Goodyear tyres fitted
N75 valve replaced
Seats removed and cleaned
Haldex earth strap fitted
Alpine radio removed and Audi Concert fitted
Oil service and pollen filter changed
PRV replaced
And last but not least Bosch 550cc injectors installed and remap by Unicorn.

Still have a long list of things I would like to do over the next 12 months, time and finances permitting but have already got some replacement sill covers to go on once I get them painted, so that is my next project and sorting out both doors which have dropped a little bit over the last 15 years!!

When I had my new injectors installed a couple of weeks ago I'd seen that the clips between the injectors and fuel rail were really corroded, so picked up some new ones from Audi and spent a few minutes replacing them. Not a big job but nice to know that these should be ok for a good few years.

Also installed an OEM short shifter from stokeaudi on Saturday, a subtle difference in gear lever movement combined with a nice clean shifter mechanism, although the side shifter mechanism could now do with a good clean 🙂
