    Smile End of an Era. The A3 is sold :(

    As subject I took a deposit on my car tonight so it will be going either this week or the following week.

    It will be a sad day when she goes, but it's time to move on.

    Just some pics to remind me:





    It's going to a chap from Wales. So keep yours eyes open for it Dicky, Andy etc...

    I will indeed lead the new owner onto here.

    Yeah I got a price close to what I wanted for it. So I am happy.

    As for new cars I'm still not sure LOL

    Heavy on the fuel though, it's quite a heavy beast, goes and handles pretty well though Mark.

    Mark get rid of the shopping trolley handle on theboot , get something a little more subtle, looks nice though mate,
    Plenty of nice wheels out there for it , large with Stainless lips sounds good to me especially on black car.

    No doubt it wont stay standard for long .......

    You know it makes sence , but sublte tho please

    I will keep it subtle, but I'm not changing the spoiler that's part of the car!

    Hopefully this one will stay mostly standard. That's why I wanted a car that has had a lot of things done from the factory (Body kit, wheels, seats etc...) to stop me spending money on it!

    Will probably:

    Lower it
    Change the wheels
    Change the exhaust system
    Induction kit

    Then performance mods!
