    Tigger73's Scirocco R

    Well I've caved to public pressure after 2 weeks of Scirocco ownership and I'm going to start a build thread.

    It'll probably be quite short... but that's what I said with the last one also

    Here's a few pics:

    Exhaust

    Fitted up an RD Technik 3" turboback exhaust with valved muffler.

    Here's a few shots of the exhaust before fitting up:










    And a video of the new exhaust with before/after driveby:

    Full-size Spare

    I installed a full-size spare after I picked up a second-hand turbine wheel off a Passat with right size/rating tyre.




    Removed the standard foam insert and lined the floor with carpet:








    Created a new floor by making a frame:



    Attached a base for the floor:



    I glued some automotive carpet onto the plywood that I'd previously cut out and installed this on top. I had to cut the plywood base in 2 and fold it to fit it in.

    Exterior

    Put on some C.Quartz paint protection... used it as an excuse to take some shots of the car with beading:




    Mesmerising....




    I did this one a little while back when I changed plates I removed the front number plate monstrosity.




    The screws the dealer used the screw into the plate holder actually also went through the front bumper so I just reused the same holes. Otherwise I probably would have lifted up the plate a bit.




    Used some carpentery stick on screw covers painted to body colour to cover the holes left from the plate bracket. One of the other local Scirocco guys had a sheet of them sprayed. If I'm really keen I'll get the holes filled and sprayed but these work pretty well in the meantime.

    Forge DV installed:



    The screw to hold the DV onto the existing bracket took as long to put in as the entire rest of the installation!




    And some more parts arrived....






    R8 Coil packs installed for an extra 5kw of "bling":




    Installed a Ramair CAI:

    Scirocco R Soundaktor Removal

    Today I removed the Soundaktor. It's been causing the dash to vibrate and when I make phone calls in the car all the other person can hear is artificial engine noise. So it's now quiet in the cabin and I can actually hear the real engine (not just the fake one)

    first off remove the rubber seal and rain tray from the passenger side:



    This is the devil that you're looking for. There's a 10mm nut that holds it on which you'll need a socket to undo (no room to get a spanner onto it - I tried and failed):



    Once removed I just zip tied the connector and wire back onto the hole that the Soundaktor was attached to. Keep things tidy and stop the cable/connector from causing any more annoying rattles...
