I'm pleased with the outcome, it needs a buff and a wax but I am glad I went gloss not satin in the end as it looks more like the OE black optics now.

Just the grill left to do....

Watching with interest. I had the V8 S5 same colour as yours some time ago and I loved it.

Used the VagCOM cable to unlock loads of cool stuff too.

Good luck with it

Instead of the grill today I turned my attention to things of a more mechanical nature....

I seem to have invented the magical flying S5 version...

today was all about the brake lines but like most things it evolved into other stuff (whilst in there). So the rear discs are being binned as they are past their best, the brake shields have been removed to go to the powdercoaters on Monday, thankfully the calipers just need a bloody good clean, the black finish on them is acceptable.


but as the wheels are off and she can't move anywhere and I am going to the powdercoaters it would be rude to not take these

as they definitely are not in the condition I want them to be in...

Very nice.

Change of colour or keeping the OEM look?

parts are slowly landing.... I blame my bike for my Titanium fixation..... when presented with this...
rusty, crusty nipples....

yup.... 4 ordered in lovely Ti64

much better

the condition of the black finish on the calipers (certainly the face you see) was deemed acceptable after a clean.... I'll wait till I get my hands on a set of RS5 calipers before stripping and refinishing them....
However in the meantime, the plates just wouldn't clean up on the front calipers

what should I do?





yup.....

much better

whilst I am waiting to collect my wheels I've been repainting the brake disc bells, the front discs where fairly new, so they are done...

Hopefully the postman brings my new rears tomorrow, then they can be painted to match....

No pressure, only supposed to be going on holiday in the S5 Saturday...… what could go wrong!!!! lol
