    My A3 2.0 TDi :)

    Hello peeps my names Adam , ive been on here for a few week now and i got to say im very in impressed with the forum , I'm new to the Audi scene so i thought i'd say Hi and post some pictures of my car up:

    Spec:

    Its a 2.0 TDi S-line Quattro In Dolphin Grey, 78K, Full Service History, Full leather etcc
    Im very pleased with it so far, My old car was a Vauxhall Corsa C :L so it quiet a big jump for me lol I wasn't specifically looking for a Quattro but it sure is a big improvement since it seems to handle excellent

    Let me know what you think

    Yea when its clean its lushh , Ill be brave :L i was brave with my corsa and sprayed my rota grids orange looked awsome, Im after something with a little dish , staggered offset maybe 8J front 9J rear, just duno 18's or 19's lol to many rims to choose from , I went for the cheap option on the Corsa and bought TA Techix , bad choice tbh very bad quality and had nothing but trouble include one of the front struts blowing the bottom off so the damper poked out the bottom and demolishing my CV boot :L

    Joe

    Nice car Adam. I went from a 90s Honda Ballade to my TDI. Had it for 3 years now and still love it.
    I went for HR -35mm springs and std dampers on mine. Made a big difference. much cheaper than coilovers too
