Picked up my new (well nearly - 6K) car this afternoon.

Spent rest of the afternoon crusing the roads and some not so well made roads of rural Perthshire.

So now I actually have her, I need to prioritise the following work:

1) Sat Nav
2) iPod integration
3) Sports Suspension
4) 18" Alloys & Summer Tyres (Going to keep the 17" & fit winter tyres)
5) Tune the engine
6) Change my handle

Ross - Yes it is Reed Green (Difficult to tell in the Scottish Sun
) I've got the Reed Green Interior as well - looks the business.

Mikey - just get that A6 flogged on Ebay (was a sad day though to see it go on Saturday there's probably therapy to help guys like us through such times
)

I intend to do some real life testing of economy etc before doing the mods so that I can get some true before and after comparison data - I'll of course post all results.

Robd,

not sure of the best way to keep brake dust off your wheel but if you polish your alloy in either wheelwax which can be found here WheelWax or with a coat of meguairs nxt wax it make cleaning them so much easier.

Always remember don't just do the wheel face give the inner rim a good polish aswell.

They only need polished in this way every 3 months but use a good quality wheel cleaner like meguairs at every wash.

Nothing worse than looking at a clean wheel face but when you look through the inner rim is caked thick with black brake dust.

I recommend getting some rubber mats for your footwells. I have the same colour interior as you and had to get some mats within a week of getting the car.

Please please - no fighting over postings on my posts


Yes - rubber mates are on my shopping list, car came through a vehicle sourcing company so no chance to haggle for little extra's like mats - just £££££££'s of the price.
