hi guys brought my first audi a3 a few weeks back now and already got some big plans for it.
well first off the car is a 1.8 20v non turbo audi a3 8l on a p reg.
black in colour and just done over 170,000
i paid £250 for it with 12 months mot but no tax.
car was stood up for approximately 12-14 months before i purchased it from a chap in chichester.
on collection of car i found only a few minor things wrong with it, brakes will need changing in about 8000 miles, inspection service light on, a few minor rust bubbles showing on roof rails.
all things that i will be changing soon and sorting out so no big deal there.
right anyway the car is black and am wanting to start a colour scheme, i love the euro look so have a lot to work with when it comes to styling.
i so far have decided on doing an agu engine conversion and have sourced a full drop in complete conversion from a chap up north who will supply everything i need for £300 apart from induction hose and filter. so i am sending him a deposit on thursday. before collecting or getting delivered in a few weeks time.
this conversion is coming in the form of, engine, subframe, gearbox, driveshafts, discs, pads, calipers, ecu, wiring loom, keys, dash clocks, full standard exhaust, hubs, arms, etc etc etc. so basically a drop in unit and bolt up, wire and plumb.
is there anything i could add. i know i would be looking at a front mount intercooler, induction kit with pipework, uprated dump valve, new clutch kit new water pump and cambelt kit.
right anyway back to the subject of colour schemes. the car is black and want to keep it black as love the colour but want to add some in your face colour scheme to go along side black. was thinking either dayglow yellow/green or vibrant pink.
i have seen a few cars black and yellow or black and green so am siding at the mo with black and pink.
i mean subtle things like engine hoses and graphics on rear window, also i have seen some cool wheels which are polished front and pink centres inside of spokes basically but they are not euro stance enough for me.
will get some pics of the car up soon but it is in standard audi trim so was thinking if someone could photoshop for me would be good. i want smooth door handles, smooth bootlid, facelift front bumper, s3 rear bumper, debadged grille, de wiper rear end. so going for the smooth euro look.
let me know what you guys think
these are the wheels i was looking at but think the polished bits would be better black
i do also like the grey/white/black army look samco hoses so that could be a colour scheme aswell but harder to pull off succesfully i think
