Weather has been a bit better today so went for a quick drive at lunch time to get some pictures. Booked in tomorrow morning to get the windows tinted :rocker:

And yes... I have no idea how to use a camera.

Looks great outdoors, do you plan to change the wheel colour? There's just something missing for me.

Is it the orange indicators, window tints, spacing, can't put my finger on it.

Colour is great though. You're still wining.

I completely agree. The plan is to get a set of Rotiform RSE 20s in anthracite:

I just can't afford them right now. Whilst I save up, the windows are being tinted tomorrow morning, then when I get a day spare I will detango the lights.

That's pretty much all I want to change for now with the visuals, I might get some led tail lights at some point but that's not a priority.

Performance wise I'm planning for the following changes:

-JCWeldFab full exhaust system
-KW v3 coilovers
-Supercharger
--Break/clutch upgrade

Had the windows tinted at Expression Automotive in Baildon this morning. They did a really good job and had it back within 2 hours. Been out this evening to get some darker shots. I love how it looks under a flash :D

I'm considering what to do next: JCWeldFab exhaust or the Rotiforms, they're both going to cost nearly the same amount so I'm torn about what I want to do. Any opinions?

MRC stage 2 and gutted pre cats then wheels. Keep the standard exhaust.

I wouldn't be opposed to doing that but ever since I bought the car the exhaust valves have been seized. I managed to force them open so at least they're stuck open and not stuck closed :D But unless I replace it it will feel like a broken part and that really grinds my gears. Besides, that jcweldfab sound is so hard to say no to :notworthy:

Mine are always open, who needs them closed?

As much as I’d change the exhaust, a lot of people on here have chopped the centre resonator out and say it makes a massive improvement and is very cheap to do by comparison. Might be worth doing that and having the stage 2. I’m a fan of the stock wheels to be honest but in Audi titanium / Titan colour. Maybe you could do that which would get you more if what you want initially without as much initial outlay. Then get the JC and Roti’s later.

By the way Chris from MRC opened CM Tuning in Leeds and will do gutted precats and MRC mapping, including launch control/flat shift/crackle maps etc. Doug does all of that work, just less distance for you to travel.

Oh that's quite tempting actually. Maybe I will have the pre-cats gutted and resonator removed, then if I'm still not satisfied I could get the weldfab later in the year.

Just spoke to CM tuning. Booked in for a carbon clean, health check, pre-cat gutting, resonator removal, and stage 2 remap :)
