    Cheers mate and thanks for the push to get it updated lol.

    Once the bonnet is back from the bodyshop that will be ppf’d, refit the spoiler and that’s pretty much it I think

    Haha staying 420 for now if anything Im considering a 2.5 RS3 engine but that will be a long term thing.

    I’ve just read this thread start to finish.
    Absolutely stunning car!
    I like my cars completely standard but love seeing what everyone else does to theirs.
    The time and effort ( and money) put into this car is phenomenal.
    I’d have it wrapped in cotton wool in my garage. Lol

    Hey mate, greetings from Colombia!!! I just read your complete thread and it is just amazing how much work and patience you have put into this car. The build is just awesome!!! I'd love to have a bonnet and trunk like yours. I bet it is crazy expensive??

    Here is a couple pictures of my small Leon FR 1.8 TSI (here they sold them until model year 2014)[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Alright. Quick question. Just had a look at my rear discs and they look about 256mm with a shield that wraps around them. I assume for the 310mm discs you have to ditch the shields? Also you still using the stock rear calliper carriers or do they need to be adapted?

    Hi mate, I’ve got the 310mm set up from a R32/S3, I ditched the 256mm shields and was meant to buy 310mm shields but never got round to it lol, you will need new carriers to suit the larger diameter disc and also callipers as the 310mm discs are vented so wider than the 256mm discs .

    Cheers. That would explain a lot. I was just measuring up and trying to figure how the stock caliper would ever take a 310mm disc.
