    So...new car

    Firstly thankyou to everyone for putting up with my questions

    I ended up with a 2004 (53) Audi A3 3dr 2.0 Tdi Sport. I love it, especially the DSG box, and heated leather (rare on the Sport). Only done 85k. Am looking to get Audi to service everything inc DSG for piece of mind.

    Dont really want to modify it (ruin it) however wouldnt mind a few S-Line additions over time, the problem is it is Lava Grey and there are multiple shades of Lava Grey, so colour matching is an issue.

    First thing I am going to get is a remap, and then save up for the following:

    Milltek full system + large bore downpipe.
    MD*** turbo, hybrid, good for 240hp. (cant remember exact model number)
    FMIC and silicone piping (in black)
    BMC CDA
    Anything needed to support turbo (larger injectors?)
    Another remap, most likely real time one instead of just a "chip".

    Externally nothing much, i like the idea of a sleeper! I even like the standard wheels!

    Needs a good wash!

    Not as in bigger wheels. Dad offered me his 18" genuine rs6's but not a fan of the ride quality of low profiles, (hence why he wants to swap)!

    I'd consider some suspension mods ARBs etc if you looking to get the car up to 240bhp as well.
    Be patient. English is tough.
