Over the weekend, after my shift, The engineers at work put my car up in the air to have a look underneath, we were all impressed with how it looked. I then took it home to give it a clean and a first layer of polish. I tried to get some of the scratches and marks out left by the car cover which worked to a certain extent, but will need more work and/or a professional.

1) Up we go!

2) Boot floor and fuel tank

8 ) Installed my usb cable for charging phone. It extends and retracts into air vents

9) The seats are not too bad, one 1" cut on the passenger seat just out of shot

13) Fuel flap is a struggle to open, having to gently slip my debit card iin to open it at the moment. Not sure how to fix that yet!

14) I like the original deal sticker on the bumper

15) This will need replacing before it soaks up too much water and starts rotting the bootlid

16) Difficult to tell, but some of those marks are from the car cover, not sun glare

17) More marks

18) Faint black marks from car cover, hard to see in picture, but can see in real

All in all, I love it. A bit of work here and there and this will come up nice! Drove my wifes Audi TT to work yesterday and stalled it as not used to using a clutch anymore!

Nice! Does the rear spoiler have any other signs of bubbling/swelling? With someone operating the boot/fuel leaver does the

fuel lid release pin retract properly? The boot opens normally? There is a small adjustement with the leaver. Is the fuel lid spring

clip still in place?

Thanks Andrew, this was a big help! Spring clip was still there and functional. The lever needed a bit of adjustment and it works now, but the thick mats don't allow the lever to go all the way down, so I have to move the mat out the way to push the lever all the way down
