Very nice :smiley:

Is the rear one thicker or is it just the shadow causing an optical illusion?

Front bar is 26mm, and the rear is 22mm. 

I think the rear is the same as the OEM - except I guess from the weight these ones aren't hollow and the tensile strength will be much better.

H&R also do a set where the fronts are 28mm and the rears 24mm - but I've been told I can't install those on becoz I have xenons.

Still can't see where the difference is between ARBs for cars with xenons or without.

A quick and simple attempt to spruce up the interior.

And, some DSG steering paddle extensions:





Also, got these puppies.  Just waiting on the uprated wishbone bushes and big brake kit before fitting commences...  :laugh:




And some snazzy pipework to keep everything cool:

I think you've found the same slippery slope I'm on :grin:

Watch out though, half way down there's a really steep expensive rocky bit :laugh:

Waiting on a big brake kit - expect it in the next week or two.

Anything else from now on I suspect is going to be an expensive affair...

I was playing with the idea of putting an uprated fuel pump...before entertaining the ridiculous idea of a bigger turbo, intercooler, etc.

Open to suggestions?

Paddles are made by a company called TID.  Purchased and fitted at the TT Shop in Bedford.  Circa £150.

Going to get the big brake kit fitted tomorrow. Fingers-crossed as it's the 2nd attempt.  During the 1st attempt found out that steel brake hoses were too short and the carriers were out by 2mm.

Just hope the TTShop have been taking pics as I requested so I can share them with you all...

P.S. Got the occassional knocking noise coming from the front and rear since the ARB and bushes were fitted.  TTShop have assured me that they will look into why this occuring...any ideas/pointers?
