    Back in Love with my Audi - thanks to Nigel!

    Even though my A3 has proved to be excellent, I've recently found myself involuntarily on the autotrader website looking for a new car. I rarely keep a car as long as a year, and I've had the Audi 18 months so she was on borrowed time!

    But after a makeover yesterday from Nigel (NHN), the car's had a stay of execution! Now with a smart leather interior, lighting pack, centre armrest, aluminium trims, new gearknob, a fixed glovebox and most importantly an extinguished air-bag warning light, it feels like a new car! Well pleased with it, and the service and skill from Nigel was superb; top-drawer workmanship and attention to detail, and a really decent bloke too.

    So back in love with the motor thanks to ASN's answer to Relate - NHN!

    Thats fine. I am his agent now and we have a window at 6 O'clock tomorrow. We operate an artificial insemination program so if you could bring your JimJams, some strong pain killers and a funnel we should have you knocked up by 8.30 pm.

    Ads failed to keep his appointment so rather than waste "it" we artificially inseminated the office hamster which was excellent as he has now repaired his wheel and fitted an auto dim mirror in his cage.

    You my friend, are indeed very much welcome, was an absolute pleasure, to 1st meet you & 2nd to get your car sorted out, after being messed about by a seller & let down, it was only fitting we got you all setup correctly, you were extremely polite, supplied plenty of my lifeblood Tea, lunch, fantastic lovely family member dog & a lovely partner, was very much a great sunday, thoroughly enjoyed myself tbh.

    Fixing the broken alum trims fixings was very satisfying tbh as I know these are expensive to replace, armrest went in well after me forgetting my socket set, whoops, lol, neighbours are great huh :P

    Car looks allot better & drives well too, good days work for all & thankyou very much for the kind words, I'm glad to see you smiling from cheek to cheek fella, cause when I arrived & you had that lot to sort you wernt like that for sure, so its good to see the work has made someone happy to use there car again

    Ok, 1st go at uploading pics...
    As Nigel says, the trickiest work is invisible, wiring, coding, repairing and the rest.
    The pics don't do it justice but they were taken on my phone. Can't see my illuminated door pulls!

    I have a perforated leather version of that steering wheel for sale. It looks so much better than the 4 spoke square thing they fitted later . no one seems to want it.

    i bet nigel was tempted to fit an rnse while he was at it

    lovely work mate...now swap your steering wheel to the one Paddy is selling and it will finish the interior upgrade i think.

    the seats looks top!

    its not really bashed on the sides, its just my photo cropping

    One point is its got paddles. You are limited with what you can fit on the early A3 because of the single stage airbag
