Well, not today. More like a couple months ago. But since Photogate I hadn't got round to posting it.
Changed one of my Mk5 keys to the Mk7 style keys. I bought all the parts to do both my keys, but it is noticeably bigger, so thought I'd just try one for the time being. I'm still using it and am used to it now but don't see any reason to do the other key. The harder part to get used to is that the key blade is a quarter turn different to the original meaning that to turn on the ignition didn't feel natural, but again I'm used to it now.

Got a digital dash instrument cluster from the UK, arrived yesterday, for my daughters urq. She's a good girl, has been working hard at her first job and putting money aside each week into her "Audi" account, to save the funds to get the car back on the road. Mind you, the account was half-slaughtered from the digidash purchase alone! The saving continues.

The digidash was missing the bulb for the ABS light so I went to Hamilton today and got a replacement and a spare (that part was my shout).

And I did nothing to my VAG today, but a couple of weeks ago took it for a day run to Mt Ruapehu.

No, she drives a wee Peugeot at the moment, which is her first car. This Audi is one in need of work, and she swindled me out of it after I bought it cheap for parts. It looks nice until you're beside it but it has rust, and up until yesterday, no digidash.

We connected up the digidash today, and it's alive. it's not screwed into place yet, -Saturday mornings first job! It was a huge relief to see it light up and the rev counter etc function, as the dash was expensive and even so still had surface corrosion over the back. But it had a repair last month in the UK and was then tested before being sent out.

Pretty good, apart from the steering feel and turn in. But thats compared the Megane R26 which has amazing steering.

Agree, Audi's don't seem to have any steering feel...

Installed MFSW buttons! Already had the high line steering wheel controller in place so very easy.
