Thanks. Hoping to do the door handles in brushed Ali tomorrow. Also have a Recaro interior I collected today. Needs a good clean though so doing that tomorrow as well!

Thai, do it. It won't be a regret :)

Cheers Wayne. Does look much better.

Rhys, no need for that you sh!t-stirrer.  :grin:

I got to really give the car a go in the motorway and it just likes to pull. And I love that noise, it's awesome!

Recaro's make such a big difference! Combined with an arm rest it makes it a very comfortable place to sit! I'm on the hunt for some leather Recaro's to replace mine with, or at least some heated cloth ones :grin:

I read through a thread on uk-mkivs yesterday where a guy supercharged his V5 :lipsrsealed:
