    So went in for inspection, I am extremely surprised... the list is a lot shorter than I expected.

    Since y’all can’t read German I will make it easier here.

    1. Front O2 sensor replace and clear code
    2. Front brake rotors (will also replace pads)
    3. Front left inner axle boot replace
    4. Replace rear muffler
    5. Replace rear anti roll bar links left and right

    If all is done within 4 weeks time return to garage and then I get my certificate! Not bad eh?!?!

    Then after that I can upgrade the car because I’m able to drive it and don’t have to always take the train to my hobby workshop to work on it. I can work on it at home and drive it everyday and not have to worry about inspection for 2 more years! Yuuhuuu

    Thanks guys

    Of course there are a lot of other things to do not on that small list but at least she’ll be back on the road! After almost a year of ownership I’ve only driven her less than 100miles

    Put some money down tonight on a tt Quattro as a donation to the cupra. She needs a new engine so I may as well go bam/ko4. Car is a friend's going to the golf r so selling it cheap to me.

    On a warm dry afternoon
    Turn on full beam. Open back of housing and leave for an hr to get nice and hot. Should remove the moisture.
    Some just get condensation now and then. I had both lights changed for new VW originals ( while they still had them )
    One of mine fogged up within 2 months.

    Picked car up from fabricator.. if you look in the back ground it's lovely blue sky's..... the trip home (30mins) it was just a down poor the whole way. So had to come to work with it . Dry the car and prep it for spraying the primer to help protect the car. Is any one on here a sprayer for a living Resized_20190810_141425_7210.jpeg 20190810_141432.jpeg Resized_20190810_141447_8806.jpeg Resized_20190810_141652_9130.jpeg

    Very cool! But you swapped to the R intake manifold? Otherwise it would be a different setup correct?
