    Hi guys I'm Millar from around the Liverpool area, I'm creating this thread even though work hasn't really begun on the Car but it will in the next few days, I'll update it as often as I can and any advice is appreciated.

    I had a 1.8i 16v 3 door Focus for about 3 years but got bored of it, and out grown it so I decided to buy myself a Audi A3 1.8T Sport, this would be my first Turbo'd Car and VAG, it had less than 90k on the clock and for a 1999 I was pleased with that, full service history and only 1 lady owner, the clutch and fly wheel had only just been changed a few days before so I think I got a bargain for £950 with 12 Months MOT.

    it's Gun Metal Grey and despite a very small ding on the boot and a scuff on the arch the bodywork is in perfect shape, has a full cream leather interior and the Bose sound system upgrade with hidden Bass Box and AMP.

    Here's some pics anyway:








    First attempt at waxing (got the missus to do it she spent over 2 hours while I made brews hahaha)







    2nd thing done when I got it home was bought 6 Months Tax (not 12 because I'm a cheep *******)

    Future plans are:

    • Full service and cam-belt/water pump change
    • Recirculating dump valve
    • Panel Filter
    • Lower 30mm
    • S4 Alloys
    • New head unit
    • Boost gauges (looking to get 3 small ones and position them in a similar location to were the ST/RS has them)
    • Blacked out grill
    • Rear tinted windows
    • Tinted head/rear lights
    • S3 spoiler
    • S3 front/rear bumper
    • Manifold
    • Exhaust (not sure on exhaust yet, might have a de-cat or might go cat back gotta look at the pros and conns)
    • Remap
    • Ambient interior lighting
    • Smaller aerial
    • Smoothed standard air box

    So far that's all I have planned at the moment no doubt that list will grow, but I will cross things off as I go along, I'm in the forces and use the Car on a regular basis covering over 600miles most weekends to see my family and get to and from camp, so I need the Car to stay as reliable as possible but at the same-time want a little more out of the engine performance wise, I won't be doing as much traveling around come September time so the real big changes can happen to the Car around then.

    That's me and my Car anyway if I can make it to any local meets I'll do my best to meet you all

    you sir are a legend. getting your other half to wax the car. How did you do that?!
    you definately got a bargain there. There seems to be alot of bargain A3s about, its getting tempting.

    i live in liverpool too btw, city centre, close to the Royal hospital. So if you ever need any help, or want to go for a hoon (when my car is back) then let me know.

    haha cheers fella, she found it "relaxing" she said, the original plan was for her to do half and for me to do the other, but apparently I wasn't doing it good enough so she decided to take over and do it all, including the interior and washing the Car before hand she probably spent over 3 hours with everything :D

    Yea thanks got them down from £1,250, I've seen loads for similar price but most have a few more miles

    I say Liverpool area because nobody has a clue about the Town I'm actually from (Ormskirk) but it's only a 10min drive so I might just take you up on your other 1 day, possibly when I next get leave around June time and begin on the Car

    They are still going lol, they have joined up with a much larger group from Preston Modified Northwest or something like that there called, I think they have 2 meets a Month ones in Preston and ones in Southport, not much in the VAG department apart from the odd Golf.

    Yes it is 235Mile drive to work, so that's 470Miles most weekends not including driving around Town or any other trips I do between, so hence me being careful with the mods until I'm based somewhere else were I will have marriage quarters and wont have to worry about reliability as much.

    I work with allot of RAF they're camps are always nicer than ours for some reason haha, as the old saying goes "We dig in, they book in" haha

    I'll find out for you tomorrow.

    Good suggestion I was going to get the standard ones tinted but that's an MOT failure so this idea is probably the better, thanks for the tip

    I can't edit my 1st post to change the list lol

    ive dont a fair few wheels, tbh it depends how good a finish you want, you can just do about 4 layers of paint and 4 of laquer and it lasts but up close looks a bit naf, to get a good job this is what i do

    sand down with some rough paper till all the paint is off
    wash off
    filler primer 2 coats
    sand down with some wet and dry fine grit
    primer 3 coats
    sand down again with fine wet and dry
    4 coats of paint let it cook in the sun for a few hours after the last coat
    the 4 coats of laquer

    tips for the actual painting, 30 mins before you want to use a can put it in some hot water (not boiling) let it warm up and shake it A LOT, keep it about 20-30 cm away even motions back and forth and leave about 30mins between each coat

    i would set aside a whole day for 4 wheels tbh but you can do it in a few hours if you have all 4 wheels off at one time (need 4 axle stands)

    Went my friends today and had a little tinker with a few things.

    I wasn't happy with the Gloss Black Spray from the tin, it chipped off really easily so we sprayed it with some plasti dip spray and it came out great (looks allot better in person) ignore the dirty bumper I've since cleaned and wax'd it.



    We then toy'd with the idea of spraying the back badges black but instead went for removing them completely and going for the de-badge look.





    We removed the badges with a Stanley knife, and then rubbed of the excess glue with warm water and a sponge took about 10 minutes.

    Fairy nuff, I used to have saloon cars that didn't have them but water lying on the screen makes everything blurry, but you're right it's not needed for an MOT, and it does look better without (and badges, which I might do to mine)...

    I might have kept the wipers had I not already debadged the car, but I'm halfway there now and would be silly not to finish it off

    Ever since I purchased my car back in 2008 I don't think I've used my rear wiper once! lol

    I may as well take it off and bung it up as it's more hassle than it's worth when i'm cleaning the motor....I've almost had my eye out on it a few times! lol

    Little update

    The 70-80mm adapter arrived and with a little bit of force went on pretty snug.



    Here it is in it's rightful place (ignore the cable ties there temporary as the shops were closed)



    My front mount should arrive Friday along with my exhaust system but I have plans Saturday and I'm back on Camp Sunday so it will probably be Friday 5th July (my birthday) when I fit them 2, and then next payday will come the remap, I still need to throw in a Full service including a cam belt change and water pump change between all of this aswell, and with only having a few hours per weekend this could be interesting

    So it's Friday! and my Inter-cooler arrived but the exaust isn't ready and I go on a weeks exercise on Monday so it looks like I'll have to wait another week to fit my new parts.

    But atleast I have new shiny parts!





    Should have all this fitted within the next few weeks and then it's time for a custom map.

    After that I will work on the brakes and get some coilovers and start looking at a bigger turbo

    I bought it from an old friend of mine, he's had it in his garage for years, it was originally supposed to go on his mk4 1.8T Golf, but he bought a C30 T5 and forgot about it. He paid allot more than I paid him for it, he got it from a local place that modeled it from the Forge kit.

    it might not be the best intercooler but it's easily capable for what I'll be needing it for some I'm happy with the purchase

    it's been a few weeks as I've been on exercise but I've gotten a few little things done and here are the pics:

    Old Gear knob


    1.jpg

    New S3 style knob

    2.jpg

    Old Aerial

    3.jpg

    New Aerial

    4.jpg

    Scratched side skirt

    5.jpg

    7.jpg

    Side skirt after being sprayed with Stone Guard (dried allot smoother than what it looks in pic)

    6.jpg

    8.jpg

    Clear Side Repeater

    995724_10151488687010108_538520572_n.jpg

    Tinted Rear Windows

    970254_10151487903475108_1521188290_n.jpg

    I also treated the Car to a good waxing session and spent a while cleaning up the wheels and alloys, recently had the tracking done and a new tire upfront.

    A few random pics I took while parked up in work

    1045086_10151492467245108_551148708_n.jpg

    32603_10151492467735108_545645502_n.jpg

    So in summary:
    • Tracking.
    • New Tire.
    • Wheels Balanced.
    • New smaller aerial.
    • New S3 style gear knob.
    • Clear Side repeaters.
    • Rear tinted windows.

    Still waiting on my exhaust to get finished (ordered a full 2.5'' system with decat) soon as that's done I'll have it fitted hoping for that to be done end of the Month, and I also still have the front mount waiting to go on, as it's universal and comes with no instructions I might get a garage to do it, not sure though anyone got any suggestions? how easy is it to do DIY?

    Buying a laptop this Month and since I have parts qued to be fitted I think the only thing that will happen this Month is my wheels being sprayed Black.

    Been a while since last update but bought a few little bits and pieces, aswell as giving the Car a full service, water pump change and cam belt change.

    Ordered Coilovers
    Wind deflectors
    Chrome wing mirror covers
    Plasti dip (black for wheels)
    and an S3 spoiler

    Only the chrome wing mirror covers have arrived yet so here's what they look like:
