I Agree and for me personally also the HP is not that important for me. It drives fast enough for me. Some later on we will chip it by JD Engineering here in the Netherlands to 175-180 HP. Today i've heard APR will also will deliver chipping for the TDI's also, so let's see what to do then. But after that no more HP upgrades for me. More focus on the plans in the near feature.

Some pictures later on received of last meeting





Did some cruising @ the local coast here in Zeeland (South Holland) with a friend, some shots





Snap On seatcovers we're in for work in the car, ordered also some covers for the fenders, when you work/clean the engine compartment



Some new mods are in preparation, will post some progress

After we mounted the APR kit, there was some large opening left which was holding the original airbox.



Quite annoying so we went to work, with some first example :



We've made a 4 mm Alloy plate to fit the gap :







Now the plate was finished, we've made a little frame to hold it. We used one of the original mounting points of the original airbox and a opening already in the chassis near the left-fender







Panel and fram we're finished, we used a tap-drill (don't how to translate that) and let the inbus-bolts sink in the panel







Ready for some painting

Yes the panel will be CF. In the meantime picked up a new Engine Cover.

Cover



Idea is to do the outside panel also in CF



Innerside panel will be in color of the car and the TDI logo will be removed. After that we put some details on it (some small red line around inner panel and/or a APR logo (thick letters) in red. Think about that later on.
