Spent some time at the exhaust shop, removing my downpipe, and welding the exhaust temp sensor adapter, from Defi.

DSC_0767 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Out of focus pics for the win

DSC_0775 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Then i cut the radiator hose, drained the fluids, and inserted the adapter for the water temp sensor. Went for simple clamps, because they fitter better in situ compared to the heavu duty ones. Filled with G13 again, and Happy to report, no leaks.

DSC_0766 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Then it was matter of connecting the sensors with the Defi main unit under the steering wheel. The route through the firewall was known from the installation of the previous gauges, so again, removal of tray stuff

DSC_0779 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0797 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

My main goal was for the wiring to be visible, but oem+ fitment.

I think it came out great

DSC_0788 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0790 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0802 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

And there they are, the water temp and exhaust gas temp readings on my 1.6 tdi, making 160hp at the dyno.

Excuse the iphone pics, but i was excited.

Cheers guys , more things on the way, stay tuned.

Another thing that was on my list, was to upgrade all of the interior switche to the Q3 / A1 facelift model. I had been postponing this mode due to the fact that i would have to not only purchase them all from the dealership to begin with, but also, to change their colour afterwards to match the white new interior lighting theme. I didnt want to go for cheap ebay china replicas.

However, i thought that i could purchase them, and then just change the caps, and keep the electronic parts as spares. And i was right.

Photos are always better than talking so. . . .

Parts were bought

Some G13 to replace the one i spent for the water sensor.

DSC_0808 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0803 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Interior parts were removed

DSC_0805 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

So, some more updates then.

First I tried an optic thing in the front of the car. I added a black part between the headlighs and the front grille. I tried it with some 3M black vinyl i had laying in the garage. It came out nicely, I think i might do it if i keep this bumper . . .

DSC_0844 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0845 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0848 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

50:50 shot

DSC_0849 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

I liked it. I might do it properly

DSC_0852 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Now some other orders that were incoming . . .

I ordered a phone mount from OEMMOUNTS from UK. I normally hate phone mounts in the car, i think they are ugly and destroy the oem theme. however, this mount, at least for me, changes things.

Here is what you receive

DSC_0902 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

They even supply the tool to remove the vents

DSC_0903 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0904 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0905 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Amazing guys

DSC_0907 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Mount in place, behing the vents

DSC_0951 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0957 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0959 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Dont mind the temporary steering wheel

DSC_0960 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0955 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

I like it very much

DSC_0954 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

more to come

Hello and Merry Xmas to all of you guys who are still into forum build threads. Seems like Youtube has killed forum of every kind

Found some time to do some maintenance stuff mostly.

First I had to prep the summer wheels i took off the Audi A1.

DSC_0962 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0964 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Foam Lance comes very hand in every case.

DSC_0966 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Also what helps A LOT is the wax/sealant i had used after the powdercoating. It helps a lot guys.

DSC_0968 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Then, onto air to remove all water and then reseal for winter storage

DSC_0970 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0972 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0974 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Then I spent some time on the Golf.

First i Installed the rear seats net, like i had in the A1. Came out great in my opinion, let me know what you think as always.

DSC_0757 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0758 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Then it was washing time for the Golf as well

DSC_0988 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0980 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0982 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0984 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Interior was in a pretty ok condition, only the floormats needed attention

DSC_0986 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

And some shots i took

Hello and Happy New year to all of you.

I have another update to share with you guys

So, it had been in my mind for quite some time, that since this car isnt as fast, performance-wise, as my other projects, although, percentage-wise, power increase from stock, is 60%, nevertheless i thought it could look nice under the bonnet. So I found some things available for this car.

Mostly, billet caps for places here and there.
The Oil Filler Cap Coolant Cap, Washer Fluid Cap, and the Top Mount Caps.

Firstly, these three arrived which were supposed to be a direct fit for my car. DSC_0853 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Their quality is amazing

DSC_0855 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0856 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0858 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

However........there is an issue when it comes to fitting them. It wasnt specified that these were designed to fit on top of older style caps. Oem ones, but from older cars, Golf mk3/4 era, and TT era. So, their bottom sides looked like this

DSC_0859 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0860 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

And they supplied headless worm-style screws to tighthen them - which were not much needed as they had a tight fit if you had the right caps.

The washer fluid cap, needed no oem cap, it was a direct snug fit, so that went on easily first

DSC_0861 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0874 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Also, the oil cap, went on the existing one, with the help of the small screws, and i also added some loctite there just for good measure

DSC_0880 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Just the look i was going for

DSC_0888 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Now, lastly the coolant one

Here is the style cap our cars come with

DSC_0893 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

And this is what you need to buy to make it work

DSC_0894 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

It is the same from below, and fits perfectly

DSC_0895 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Like that, flush fit

DSC_0896 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

And this is where you can add the little screws for extra strength, and i did.

DSC_0898 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0926 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Secured

DSC_0928 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Installed

DSC_0932 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0936 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Love the look

DSC_0940 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

General Overview

DSC_0943 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0944 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

hmmm wonder if we can do something about these as well

DSC_0947 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Well we can, we surely can

Boom

DSC_1015 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_1026 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

These were also available in black aluminum, but where they are located under the plastic undertray they would be lost so i went for silver for a subtle contrast

DSC_1022 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Quality once again, amazing

DSC_1016 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Despite the heavy rain, on NYE, i went out and went for it, hehe

DSC_1031 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Marking the wipers location prior to removing them to then remove the plastic undertray

DSC_1030 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Remove the OEM plastic cover and you are left with this

DSC_0007 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Caps side by side

DSC_1035 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_1037 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Added some blue Loctite prior to installing to prevent diesel vibration from removing the cap- trust me it vibrates.

DSC_1038 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

And then it was a matter of installing them on

Passenger side

DSC_0017 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Driver side

DSC_0004 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

And this is how it looks with the plastic cover back on.

DSC_0019 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

It is there, but very subtle

DSC_0020 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Cheers guys

Hello how are you doing.

Have some things to show you.

Remember the floormats i had purchased from a seller over at ebay ?
Yes they looked awesome. But in three months time they looked more tired than oem ones did in a 3+ year period time.

Look at them.

DSC_0027 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0026 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0028 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

So decided to go for new OEM ones. Couldnt find the colour combo i was after so went with these.

DSC_0022 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0023 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0023 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0025 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

And here they are installed in the car

DSC_0032 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0033 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0030 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0038 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Then I sourced something from Germany that i wanted for a long time. I bought it new, with instructions and hardware for installation.

DSC_0039 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

You know what it is ?

DSC_0040 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0041 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Now you do

DSC_0044 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Yes it is a high beam assist mirror with auto dimming.

DSC_0046 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0053 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Then, owning the car for 4 years, i decided to change a battery. Had zero issues with the factory one, none, but changed it nonetheless just to be safe. Also went for a slightly larger one, but still alowing for the spare wheel to fit inside. Given that this has the start-stop ability, it costs a lot. And i havent ever paid so much for a battery, ever, but oh well. Some photos of the installation.

DSC_0055 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0057 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0059 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0060 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0062 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0063 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

On a side note, I also picked up an Iphone XS 256, so i might take better pics even without my trusty Nikon, LoL

DSC_0067 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Always wear some protection I guess

DSC_0081 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Another maintenance issue, is the trunk springs, which were a bit tired after the 4 years. Not too tired, but the trunk wanted some help to go up

DSC_0084 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0085 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Had to remove the stock ones, pretty straight forwards, just remove the pins

DSC_0089 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0090 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0093 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

And then install the new ones. Job done.

Lastly, something which was not planned but happened nonetheless.

Did it ever happen to you, to search for OSIR products on ebay and come across Forge products ? Well it happened to me. This guy was selling these, hardly used, so I just had to

DSC_0095 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

They go on top of the OEM ones like this

DSC_0102 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0103 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

I first tried these on the TFSI

DSC_0105 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0108 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

But they didnt fit the theme. So i thought lets put these on the little Audi and bring the black ones on the TFSi. Like this .

Golf

DSC_0116 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0110 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0118 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0114 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

And then, the new Forge ones on the little Audi

DSC_0122 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0124 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0125 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Cheers

More to come

And then

I washed it like i should

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Here is where i first collected my car from

At last received my OSIR floormats mounting aluminum clips - as the ones i made didnt clip to my standards.

I don't know where to begin from.

Let's see. Let's start with activating the OEM parking sensor radar which was a thing i hadnt ticked off the list

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

The settings part, and then the visual presentation

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Then, if you recall, i had purchased a new OEM interior mirror, equipped with both the auto-blur/dark as well as high beam assist function, which for those who dont know what it is, you just turn your high beam on, and when it sees a car coming from the opposite direction it turns them off automatically and when you pass that vehicle, turms the high beam back on. Very very usefull feature for me.

So, this is the mirror and wiring

DSC_0041 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

DSC_0044 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Removing the old mirror

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Watch as you rotate, to not break the glass

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

New mirror and the wiring, to the canbus along with coding went on

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Then, knowing me, i couldnt leave the led being green, and the other one being red when lights went on, so i knew i had to open it, and change the leds. I was very careful cause it is very hard to open, and very easy to scratch. Taped it, and used these tools, as well as old credit cards.

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Handle with care

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Now we are talking

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

And here is the indication it is working as it should

Time for the summer setup

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

However i had not summer tires, as i moved my Yoko Paradas to my Golf.
So I had to buy some new ones for the A1. I went for Michelin Pilot Supersports in 225.40.18 . The reviews were great. Let's see

So I had some changes to the car's badging just to freshen things up a bit and customize the look even more.

First inspiration was given by my other car, the blue Audi. It had this badging upfront on the RS4 Oem grille which i customized

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

So i thought i would keep the them on my little daily driver Audi as well given the grille was a bit naked.

Purchased a generic RS4 badge from ebay and threw away the lettering.
Left up with this which i would modify

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Painted the studs in black

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

And trimmed the back plate to meet my grille openings

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Final Result was this.

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Which I like very much

Excuse the dirty car

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Then, I took inspiration from the new Audi A1 2018, which has from factory gloss black logos at the trunk , and also the new Audi badging for their models. Which is a little weird and hard to understand. So i looked further into it, and 40 TDI, means, 165 to 198hp, and ofcourse TDI engine.
I liked the idea that this car didnt have this badging back then, and also that gloss black would not pop out on the gloss black trunk that I have at that specific area. What is more, it was gloss black from factory, which as we all know, doesnt look cheap, or chipped away like most of the time painted chrome does on these things even with a good prep. Downside was their price, which was out of this world. Guess they have hidden gold flakes in that paint, i dont know. At least I hope they do.

Then, having debadged my car the first day i got it, like i always do, i didnt have measurement of where the badges go, which can drive me crazy if they are not where they should. So i asked the dealership body shop to give me some templates to use just to glue the new ones on. As expected they didnt have any, and told me they measured out of another car each time they would put badges on . I was like wtf. So i decided to make my own templates from a friend's Audi A1.

First i had to remove this

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Started like this, with markings on standard places like the tailight

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Went to this and wanted to make some removable and re-usable

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

There

Untitled by mgpdoc, on Flickr

Now i would transfer it onto here and cut where the logo is

Like this

Depends what else you have done to the car.......
Personally I was going to get the rear panel on my daughter's A1 painted black while it was being repaired but having looked at another silver and black A1 where it has been done, I think it looks better left in silver. Many styling and painting modifications are a matter of personal preference and I think Audi got it just about 100% with the first-shape A1 in two-tone paint
