So I have had the car just under a week now and I have done 600+ miles and it’s a total different experience to a N/A. Last night I took my little girl up one of my favourite roads (Hartside). It’s not the fastest car but you can have a lot of fun with it.
Definitely needs a new suspension and 16’s with a nice tyres

So some more little parts arrived today. First my touch up pens which am going to sort the stone chips out on a warmer day.

An Audi Exhaust Tip arrived. The part comes of the A1 and A3 which is a direct fit to the Up TSi.

It’s a 2 minute job which just pushes straight on. I personally think it look so much better.

I also had a storage net from a Clio at work going spare so I put it in the lower boot section to keep all my stuff together. It fits alright.

So just pop down to my mates garage to pick up my Old 15 x 6.5 Oz Super Turismo WRC Alloy’s which I was fixing for my Polo GTi, 2 years ago. I had them straightened and prepared ready for paint.
Am not sure weather to sell them and look for 16 Or paint them Silver and put them on. What’s people’s thoughts

Neat, look forward to seeing it fitted. OEM ones suffer from droop ! Can you avoid that, any fitting mods......

Really good work! It’s a shame they don’t offer the GTi in Azul blue... but that said, it means your car is going to be pretty unique when finished.

Thanks Mole. I have already been stopped in the petrol station by a little old man in a Polo Gti who was asking if mine was a Gti.
Just need to decide one wheels next.
