No real updates at the moment. Just to thank DieselDave for hooking me up with the shortshift kit.He fitted it for me and all in less then five minutes, I got the fast, positive, sporty gear changes I was after, nice one!
It has been a while since I updated this thread. Since the last post the 16V rear beam has been fitted, as have G60 front arches and the sill cover. I've also put the Half tinted rears on the 16v and put the standard ones back on the GTD, Not too sure about them in my opinion.
It's very difficult driving a car long distances 4 days a week and still trying to maintain the bodywork as much as possible.

Looking well there Conor!
16V rear beam looks the part! much difficulty fitting it?
Well the bushes were a pain to put in because I didn't have the thing for forcing them in, Luckily my grandfather had one, he also had the kit for flaring brakelines which came in handy because we basically replaced every brakeline at the rear. At the front the servo was a pain in the arse because the turbo housing was in the way so alot of prying and jimmying required there. But other than that it was straightforward enough.
Well after owning the car for 2 and a half years i've finally sold it. I had it NCT'd and VWvariant (Padraig) picked it up today. I'd like to wish him the best of luck with it and I hope it serves him as well as it did for me.
Since I've had it I've driven it over 25,000 miles, I'm going to miss that car.
