Hey people. I've been lurking on this forum for a while now and thought it's time I introduced myself!
My names Indy, I'm 22 years old and based in Leeds.
Whilst at University I was really into 'show cars' and used to attend a lot of VW shows each year. I've matured a lot since then and could no longer bear having a car which was impractical in every sense of the word, lowered to within inches off the ground etc etc.
I quickly lost interest in modifying to that extent which led me to buy my first Audi. A 2.0 TDI sport in Brilliant Black.
As I've already done the whole coilovers wound right down, stretched tyres thing, my aim for the Audi is to upgrade it using OEM parts and make subtle styling changes which won't cause the car to look overly modified. In other words I want the car to look as if it could have come direct from the factory with the changes I make.
I feel I've done enough talking, so I'll fire away with some pictures.
Here is my previous car, which I still have. Reason I still have this car is that it's currently in the process of being featured in a magazine. I'm not sure which one yet. The photoshoot is this Saturday which I'm excited about!
As you can see, it's not the ideal car to roll up to work in each day, suited and booted!
P.S. Excuse the dirty 'daily' mats
And here is my Audi! Sorry for the quality of these pics, I took them quickly using my iPhone.
I didn't waste much time before modifying. Within a couple of weeks I fitted a centre arm rest. I was surprised to find that the securing hole for the arm rest was already threaded, as I read somewhere on the forum that it was not pre-threaded and a nut would have to be used.
Currently, the car is sat in the bodyshop having the following done.
Front 2005-2008 S-Line bumper with black S3 grill and gloss black Audi emblem.
Rear S-Line spoiler
Rear 2008-2011 Black Edition bumper and diffuser
Rear gloss black Audi emblem and deletion of 'A3' and '2.0 TDI'
Really excited to get it back, hopefully will be this week!
That's all for now, will update this thread with the cars progress!
