Have you noticed the Audi cover doesn't fit as well as the old one, or does yours fit snugly? My sister tells me hers is a bit looser than the standard black plastic one in her Octy vRS. Wondering if it's a common thing or if it's just hers. I already have an Audi, so mine came with the car. Such a worthwhile upgrade IMO.

Hi mate, mine seems to fit snuggly to be honest, not that i'll ever use it! To be fair I hardly ever see it as I always have my armrest extended but is a nice little upgrade. Thank you

Cheers, on the Octy 3, it’s visible. Nice to have it hidden away tbf, looks better. When looking back at this thread, I have to have a quick peek at page 1, this car looks great. Never been a fan of white cars until I bought one and ever since, they’ve grown on me and this one just looks spot on

Lovely car - think the Pretorias are a must have - the standard wheels are just awful

Yes I agree, the two things I wanted was Pretorias and full leather. I'm not a huge fan but the next post will probably shock you

Whilst I was at TPS I also picked up some screen wash having used it on my old gti.

IMG_7085 by jamie kirk, on Flickr

I then ordered some deionised water from ecp

IMG_7086 by jamie kirk, on Flickr

IMG_7087 by jamie kirk, on Flickr

Diluted down ready for use

IMG_7095 by jamie kirk, on Flickr

As I aim to keep this car for a long time, I thought with the Pretoria's being quite rare. I didn't want to run them through the winter so had thought about getting a set of winter alloys like I ran on my Fabia VRS.

I got thinking of what to look for and nearly bought a set of team dynamic's 1.2s, that fell through and then spotted a set of genuine VW Cadiz alloys of a 67 plate Golf R having covered 6k. I have never been a huge fan of these alloys but thought at least they will be easier insurance wise.

They are in really good condition and have got Bridgestone Potenza S001's on 6mm and 4mm so will easily see me through one winter.

Thursday night saw me travelling to Chorley, I agreed a deal with the parents to use their car for the journey. The lad I bought the wheels off had a 67 plate R which looked really nice and had gone for a set of pretoria reps and didn't have the space to keep these otherwise he would have ran them for winter like I will.

The wheels are in excellent condition just need a clean up and ceramic coating and they'll be ready to go later on in the year.
