    A3 TDI Sport build thread

    So i brought my car in January of this year with no plans to change anything but already it appears i cant help myself! Got it from a dealer with full leather, full longlife service history and 74k on the clock. Colour is ebony black.

    How it looked when i brought it:




    Within a couple of weeks I had done a few bits - changing the wheels from 17" to 18" newer s-line wheels. I also fitted s-line springs and purchased a private plate. I have also changed the oil to regular oil as I am not a fan of the longlife idea.





    Since then I have fitted:
    * Osram nightbreaker bulbs
    * Footwell lights (courtesy of Robin A3)
    * MY09 rear lights
    * New OEM mats all round
    * S-line rear spoiler
    * S-line rear quarter badges
    * Twin straight exhaust pipes




    I also have a newer s-line rear valance waiting to be fitted which should complete the rear end. Once that is completed I will be fitting the 8P2 front bumper (s-line) which will finish the exterior. Interior wise I will be fitting MK2 TT vents and S3 pedals. I also plan to fit the washer jets off a passat as my single squirt ones are pretty useless.

    Sorry for quality of pics - taken from my iphone! :-)

    Good work mate! Do you have any larger photos of the rear of the car, in particular the exhaust tips? Just interested to see how these fit in relation to the bumper on a non-sportback model.

    Looking good mate.

    I see you say you're going to fit a rear s-line valance and a front 8P2 front s-line bumper. Aren't you going to fit a rear s-line bumper too??
    If not, you're going to end up wih rubs strips at the back and none at the front.

    Thanks for those They look really good! Would it have been possible to get them sitting more flush with the bumper? I assume this would be the case if you removed the larger downturned pipes like DanB986 did on his thread, or did you just want them sat out a little?

    Ah yes, say no more.

    Do you notice much of a difference (looks and ride) going from Sport springs to S-line?? Did you keep the same shocks?
    Don't suppose you've got a side on view, before and after???
