How is he bragging about the costs, he didn't even say how much?

When he says 'expensive' what one person may consider expensive another may consider it a pittance.

My point exactly.
But hey to each on his own. One can easily tell someone who got in here to enjoy this, and one that came to try hard enough to find something to criticise.

No worries. Those who follow my build threads, know what it is I am talking about, and certainly know what genuine is.

Regards

Mike

Updates

Received the OEM rear license plate Leds

Here they are







Adaptors are from kufatec



Great quality



Before





So much road grime



First one went on



50/50



Installed both



Yeap much better, and OEM finish, not tacky blue-ish ones



No fault codes whatsoever, due to the kufatec adapters





Job done

Then, I installed the new 3000K lamps, but I might go for OEM bixenons at some point, cause this is the only car that I ordered without them, and to be honest, I miss having them.

In other news, after having the RS3 bushings since last summer, I decided it was a good time to install them, LoL

Out with the Old





Very worn as expected



In with the new, both front and rear









And then it was alignment time



Now, I am also trying to figure out what my next wheels will be, but I havent decided yet.

That is all for now

Cheers

Mike

So, I have something to show you

Shop called me, to tell me floormats were ready





We also added the logo on the rear ones, even though it wasnt there



Came out nice





Oem finish





Before and after



Went for a night ride with my daily AUD1ESEL



And today I installed them on the car







Hope you liked it too



Cheers

wow!! φοβερος Mike!
Its been a while since the last time checked golf progress.
Both this and the A1 threads are awesome.


I was wondering about the Lights on the golf. Are they custom Xenon?

Να σαι καλα Φωτη, σ ευχαριστω πολυ

The lights, are FK automotive headlighs with Xenon HID kits on both main and hi beam. I might change them for OEM bi-xenons sometime in the near future.

Lots of things to do on all of my cars, and it aint easy to go forward with all of them at once, sadly . But ideas, are always there


Cheers

Mike

Got to admit that all of the docs threads are a good read.
Cant say i have ever thought he brags about money, obviously the projects cost alot but he doesn't boost about it mate.
Dont think he is shouting about how much he knows about car either, just enjoy the thread mate or dont read it.
