Wahay - first mods!

Started off doing some small bits to the car.

Enabled a few bits via Obdeleven, stuff like ADS, emergency brake lights, VIM, start/stop memory function etc.

This afternoon I've been installing leds all round, DRL, fogs, interior and reversing. (Pictures to follow)

Bought the leds from Trups, and they're pretty much just plug and play. Dead pleased. Really makes you realise how yellow the originals are.

I've got a BSR complete remap planned, as soon as there's enough in the wallet and I can make it down to London... can't WAIT.

I have two questions:

1) Has anybody changed module 44 - steering assist in VCDS? I'm hoping changing it might make the steering a bit more engaging.

2) I wondered if anybody had any other smallish mods that don't hit insurance premiums too hard? (Surprisingly, on that note, it's WAY more expensive on my insurance to tint windows than it is to add an extra 25% extra power via remap..!)

Yeah - pretty sure it’s not viable. Would look cool though
I think you would get away with a light tint, My dads TT has had black tinted headlights from the previous owner and hes been driving the thing for 5 years now, never got any aggro.

Anyway i have the same headlights and colour car as you :wink2:
But I'm trying to justify paying 2k for some S-line headlights.....
whats your thoughts on them?
You’re a man of excellent taste clearly! I don’t think I’ll tint them. If they could go actually black, I might be tempted to de-chrome but otherwise I think the blue & chrome compliment each other really well, so light tinting not really gonna match I reckon.

I reckon 2 grands a bit steep. I’m DEAD pleased with the xenon upgrade, I reckon they’re brighter than my neighbour’s brand new 2018 model. I’d quite like the halo led ring thing, but tbh I’d MUCH rather have a remap and a few other upgrades for the price.
Haha exactly my opinion with the blue and chrome going so well. Before i got her i was adamant i would dechrome her but when the sun catches it just right. Looks so good with chrome!

And yeah i know what your saying with the spending money on maps instead of cosmetics.. but my friend has sline headlights and I'm mighty jealous
