    Hahaha! I'm not gay.... :confused: ;)

    I'm looking for a brace at the moment, expensive though and seeing as i've just forked out £200 for those engine mounts i think i might be saving for a while lol!

    Keep us updated chap!

    Just read from start to finish, damn you love your wheels!!

    Have you still got the same lights you replaced on the first page? What you think of them? As I'm thinking of changing my standard ones over.

    Just joking ;)

    I really must stop spending money on upgrades, and spend some money on getting it to run right lol

    Cheers mate :)

    Yeah still have the bulbs from the first page. I'm really not a fan of HID's, never have been, so i just prefer upgraded bulbs, and these were cheap and far out shone the standards

    Took my cd changer out the other day, and managed to sell it on seatcupra.net to another user, so had a few more pennies to spend on the car. Rather than looking for a modification, i've been tempted to get a fault code reader to keep in the car, just in case. Was gonna go for one of the basic ones, but as i now had a little extra i decided to go for this little beauty

    [​IMG]

    As well as being able to read codes, display them on the screen and then clear them, it also provides a graph to view live data such as

    * Intake air temperature
    * Mass air flow
    * Throtle position
    * OBD test system
    * MIL distance
    * Calculated load
    * Coolant temperature
    * Intake M.A.P
    * Engine speed
    * Vehicle speed

    Will prove invaluble i feel. Look forward to playing around a bit once its arrived later this week :D

    £45 including delivery :)

    Was just after a basic code reader to keep in the car, but for the extra £20 i can have access to all the live data above, so it was a no brainer for me

    These always get good reviews, i think the latest copy of car mechanics has a test on code readers in there, and this one scores highly

    Have made the difficult decision to put the cupra back to standard and sell :(

    Really need a diesel now, and have always wanted to tinker with one. As you may have seen, i've had a few bits up for sale, to help raise some extra funds to go towards a new car. Am looking to stay in the vag group and get something with the famous 1.9 tdi lump in. Will be a sad day when she does eventually go, until then just looking forward to driving her a few more times
