So, while the car was in the family, my father had done a Xenon conversion with a 6000K kit, looking something like this





it was not bad at all, plus it was nice, but, being me, I wanted something different, something that had an Audi touch in it, so . . . this happened



And then this





yeap, that's more like it now, Audi's little brother is out there

And on another note, I had this bothering me, on the center console



So yes, correct guess, bought a new part from the stealership





I will propably wait to find a new climatronic unit, and fit them both at the same time.

Cheers

Usually people buy GTI's to do this sort of thing, good on you for not going down the easy route!

I'd do the same if it were a GTi. With the difference of it being >500hp. Good thing it isnt, and helps me keep it a daily. LoL

So, one of the first things I ordered for the Golf was the set of smoked side repeaters for the mirrors. However it has been a while, and they were nowhere to be found, until today, that they arrived at last.



Along with another box for the Audi project





More on that on the Audi build thread.

Let's see the repeaters here

Really nice quality and finish







Passenger's side first



Removed the crystal mount as well, no need for that



New and damaged one, side by side



Test twice, bolt once



All done



Driver's side too



Subtle and classy, and fresh at last





I also thought I'd try some IKEA products, for quick mobile detailing





Cheers, more to come
