is that a first car or did she upgrade? nice car

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.

Yes, although I have been a bit slow getting around to the touch up as it made me somewhat annoyed every time I looked at it.

After spending a few hours cleaning the wife's car I ended up only doing the vacuuming. I found a switch on the b pillar by the drivers seat that I didn't know existed.
