    Project Silver - the A4 plan...

    Post by Geeman on Wed Mar 18, 2009 2:41 pm

    Project Silver is here!

    '00 W A4 1.8T Sport in Silver, black leather with 83k on the clock.

    It's supposed to have been re-mapped, and I can beleive it as it really does move quite well. No receipts for it though.

    No pics yet as it's in pre-Gee mode, but when it's been cleaned up I'll post some pics.

    Back in the land of the boots... yo

    Gee - I'm totally with you on the turbo front pal, each time I drive my Leon it's big grin on the face time and each time I drive my other car, (Mini Cooper Cabriolet - and yes I have kept that uber quiet for obvious reasons on here), even in sunny weather it's pants.

    You've got a Mini Convertible too? Oh the shame... Embarassed What the hell are you doing with that when you could have a fantastic VW project/plaything instead?

    Ha, ha, ha, well there is, as with everything, a story behind it! My g/f who i live with had an opportunity to opt out of her company car and get an allowance. She's not into cars at all and was considering getting either a Ford Focus or Mazda 3! I thought I should 'educate her' and showed her some other cars that I liked more, so we went an looked at a BMW 3 series and some VW's obviously. In the end, once she'd seen the Mini's that was it and so we got a cabriolet. My experience of Mini's so far is that they are small and overpriced with poor engines (with the exception of the Cooper 'S') and really poor dealerships. Wendy likes it though, so at least that's ok. I might try and get a 'project' by the end of the summer. Wendy, amazingly, is ok with this idea!

    So... here's the plan.



    I already have the 18" Oz Operas and a set of coil-overs... just need new front top mounts, bushes and engine mounts, along with a cam-belt and clutch change.

    The OZ's are going a matte metallic grey with either diamond cut rims or chrome powdercoating... not quite sure yet.

    The bonnet, front bumper, roof, wing-mirrors and boot all need paint to make perfect, so I might as well get the roof and mirrors done black.

    Yet another 'I'm not going to touch this as it's my daily' car... Rolling Eyes

    gee, would a vinyl roof not be a cheaper option? wheels look nice, don't go defeating your objectives of this car though, remember why you bought it, for what reason, don't make it impractical for its purpose and end up selling it...............

    so folks how long we giving him before he sells it?!

    less then a month 11:1
    2-3 months 8:1
    4-6 months 5:1
    7 months to a year 2:1

    place your bets now.


    lol.

    Vinyl roof would be cheaper, but there's some defects on it that need attention, so it needs paint anyway. Might just do it silver again and then vinyl it afterwards... but then there's the mirrors that need paint anyway...

    Looks sweet buddy, I'm liking the plans. The roof in a different colour is a must. It works really well.
