    My A3 Sportback 170 Quattro

    Finally got round to cleaning my new A3 Sportback properly. It's a 170 tdi Quattro and I've started mod ding it already. So far I've fitted S3 pedals, metal foot rest, mk2 tt vents and light switch, rs4 gear knob. Still to fit rs6 steering wheel which I'm making some changes to, r32 brakes but not blue A6 bbs split rims and a few other bits and pieces.

    Anyway here's some pics

    hi

    where did you get your air vent covers from? they look a better, duller matt finish than ones i have seen on ebay,
    was the dead plate easy enough to fit? bought one recently but havent got round to fitting yet
    cheers gary

    The vents are not covers there off a mk2 tt there a straight swap for the original vents

    Dead plate is easy to fit take the original plastic plate out and drill and fit the plate then refit it

    Hi mate. Have you got any pics of the s3 brakes behind the split-rims? I've got those wheels and planning that brake upgrade also. Cheers.

    Looks a nice car... Do like the S3 pedals. Was thinking of fitting those myself. Not sure about wiper delete or A6 wheels but each to our own!

    Is there any coding involved with fitting the new pedals??

    No, if I remember correctly they're just a simple swap apart from the accelerator, where you need to replace the whole thing. Also, when you're ordering them there's two versions, one for DSG and one for manual.

    Little update

    Finishing off the smoothing of my airbag to go in my RS6 steering wheel. Also changed the badge in the wheel to sline as the cars not a rs6 although I wish it was


    Also got my wheels back from Dav at Pureklas which I've found out are bbs's off an A8 not an A6




    Some pics of my S5 seats i want retrimmed when cash flow allows.



    Cars also going into the body shop for a new bonnet and the S3 side skirts and rear valance fitted.

    Looking like this at the mo but needs to go lower


    18" splits will go up for sale soon and got a set of 5 19" S6 rims being refurbed that I'll sell as well.

    If anyone knows of a black leather rear seat up for sale let me know or fancies swapping their black full leather for my black red I'll throw in the gear gator and stearing wheel for a little extra
