Yep that looks  :cool: :cool:
what other mods you got planned for the rear?  :smug:

Was up at the VW garage having a moan about my Jap spec rear bumper not being here yet!! Thats the last thing to get done to the rear  :rolleyes: lol

Got my stubby aerial today, so thats on already lol
Still giving these stubby mirrors abit stick and the blanks for the handles.

N75j valve...... what is the scoop?
Since having the car re-mapped.... it goes like stink but its like it pulls well up to 1800 rpms, then the lag kicks in and it's like it's struggling to keep up the power and then it hits 3500 rpms and it's like a jet taking off!
Is that normal? I've never had a car remapped before and the lag was nothing like this before remap. Heard lots of different things about the n75j valve so was hoping it would sort this lag problem out??

cheers guys, trying to keep it subtle and most of the mods you'd only pick up on if you were a VW fan - more so a Mk4 follower! :cool:

Like I sadi, just the bumper to pick up now. FMIC next week too, so i'll get lots more pics of that  :grin:

Sas = Pic hoor.... FTMFW! :cool:

Get yourself a black rear view mirror! Looks smart though!

I think I will, but a £10 mirror makes a lot of difference :P
