    A3 2.0T Quattro ...

    Hi all,

    Has anyone got any videos of the 2.0T in A3 form, such as videos of the tacho display and video clips of the exhaust note etc etc, you understand what I mean.

    The GTI has a nice note, but I'm wondering how this compares to the GTI. I'm up for swapping in July/August depending when the facelift comes out and whether it gets the new rear lights which are IMO not so good on a 3 Door from artist impressions.

    Options are -->

    - A3 2.0T Quattro
    - A3 3.2 Quattro
    - GTI as a last option

    I'd like the 3.2 but if all goes sour the 2.0T will suffice... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] as it's gonna be quicker than my 156 BHP 2.0 TDI A3.

    _____________________

    Over the week-end I did some handy work on my a3, see below but please post some videos of the 2.0T.

    Another snall point i'd like to make is that the calipers on the front are huge and the pictures don't show that really. 3.2 ones must be massive

    Brakes 2 - Orginal Front Caliper Front View Cleaned Up
    Brakes 3 - Red Front on 2nd Coat of 3
    Brakes 4 - Red Front near side
    Brakes 5 - Red Face View
    Brakes 6 - Car on Axel Stands nice and shiny
    Brakes 7 - Front Drying

    Took quite a while cleaning the brakes up but was well worth it in the end, whist also giving the alloys a wonder wheels work over with super resin auto glym polish followd by the Extra Gloss Protection and they came out like new.

    The 3 door? Does it have the new front end? When did they come out?
