Recently new to the VAG scene!
Decided to make the leap from only ever owning vauxhalls so far, 4 of them to date. The move was for the better, obviously. 50mpg vs 20mpg in my 300bhp astra
So anyway it's a 2.0 TDi (140) Sport, which came with climate control and BOSE, love the bose btw, in dolphin grey. This was definetly the colour for me as it is a little bit different but still blends in with the crowd easily.
The day I collected it:
I loved it standard but it didn't take me long to start modifying it.
First off went to have the windows tinted, just the rears. Whilst I was there I got chatting and found out they also did vinyl wrapping and could wrap my grille surround pretty cheap, alot less than an optics one anyway!!! So had that done there and then, aswell as the front and rear badges WRAPPED matt black, this was ever so fiddley and took them AGES! Also had the Front lights, Side Repeaters and Fog Lamps Lamin-x'd by them, however I feel the front lights are a little too dark now.
With that done I ordered a set of coilovers (from N8) as i knew I wanted it LOW but at the same time quickly and cheaply. The vmaxx coilovers offered this and the ride quality is still pretty good considering the lowness and tyre profiles. In time to come I may upgrade to better branded suspension or AIR!
Coilovers were fitted by Midland VW, cannot fault their service, so nice and friendly and definetly well experienced.
NEXT, to sort were the wheels.
Originally I wanted Bentley wheels to go on it, that was my dream, still is I think, but found it hard to come across a set so quick and that were perfect for me. I also thought about Rotiform BLQ's or VMR 710's in Matt Black. Whilst browsing the forum I had seen a set of wheels that also took my fancy. They too were 19x9" that I was after and they were up for sale right now! So it was arranged to pick them up ASAP.
Genuine Audi S6/R8 alloys. Refurbished in Light Gunmetal. 19x9", wrapped in Falken 215/35/19 with STRETCH.
I also added an s-line spoiler along the way. It makes a HUGEEEE difference.
I think thats it for now... probably forgot some stuff, but will add stuff as I go along.
Btw, I think I am going to lower the front a little more and raise the back, the rear has 2 degrees camber also and 10mm spacers.
Now for the pics!!!
