    Took the car on yet another roadtrip to central Greece

    Nov-1 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Then I did a mod i saw on Youtube from Obsessed garage. He gave me the idea, how to eliminate this thing that happens at gas stations

    Nov-1 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    So this is before

    Nov-1 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Remove the whole assembly

    Nov-1 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Remove this, which looks like a . . . . . you know

    Nov-1 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    This is all we are gonna need

    Nov-1 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Ah much better

    Now if it falls, it falls down. Not on my fender.

    Now, I am sure some guy at a petrol station will open it, and leave it on the top of the car, that is why, i am always there, you know just in case.

    Been looking for a short shifter for this car for quite a long time, however never pointed me in the right direction. Either nobody knew, or nobody cared I guess. However searching over at briskoda forum, i was almost sure i found one, and after talking with the company , they assured me it would fit, so i gave it a go. Even if it didnt the price was worth it for a shot.

    Oem one

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    New one in place

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Feels SO much better, the travel of the shifter, and the feedback from it. Amazing value for money mod in my opinion.

    It would be rude not to give it a good wash

    And their specific connectors

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Unboxing the EGT

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    And the water temp

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Threw them on to see how they would look

    Really came together

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Then I found an old adapter housing i had for the water hoses, that i had used in the golf.

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Bought all new clamps, and oem hoses to see if it would fit without removing the ones from the car

    It worked great, but the blue theme, just didnt work for me anymore.

    So, I could paint it black, or silver, or i could do something even harder. Make a copy out of scratch aluminum.

    This piece, will become our final product

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    There we go

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Test fitted the sensor

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    All great

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Now all i have to do is install them , both the exhaust temp and water temp and we will be good to go

    And last but not least, another project . . . .


    Remember my TTs steering wheel ? Removed it

    Also, used my Golf a bit more

    Nov-2 by mgpdoc, on Flickr

    Dont worry, i didnt go back to this steering wheel for no reason. I sent mine off to UK, to get some Alcantara, and Carbon fiber treatment. Super excited. Cant wait to show you guys results

    Cheers

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

    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_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.

    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.

    Finally, installed on the car

    Very happy with the results. A subtle, but very nice mod.

    Cheers
