    Belated Intro / New Car Thread

    Though i should offically say Hi.

    Joined a while ago when i was after some info on an 8L, but didnt buy it.
    Now i finally have my first Audi, a 2004 2.0 Tdi Sport. 3dr in black, standard, has leather / alcantara interior, cruise, bose, maybe some others bits that i dont know are options/extras yet too!

    Got it through work after it was traded in. Currently not driving it, as in the process of selling my BMW 330d Sport. Ive always been into smaller older cars, but a baby last year forced me to get a more appropriate car.
    Unfortunately i went a bit ott, and the BMW is just too big for my liking, and i have no interest in modding it. Found i really missed working on my car etc.

    Heres the A3




    Been claying the car this week, will start a full paint correction later in the week to take care of the swirls and scratches etc.

    Plans arent too extreme atm, ive done the whole coilover, show car thing. So looking to make this nice, but still remain sensible.
    Eibach Springs, stereo system, not getting on with the bose, maybe keep my eye out for facelift parts if i find any good deals, same goes for wheels. Though ones ive liked so far probably wont be coming up used a lot! There is of course a chance ill get caught up, and be doing all kinds of silly things again!

    First task is to really tidy it up, its not in bad condition, but want a better finish, ive missed having a car that really gleams. Although i did say id stay away from black after having 2, theres not many better colours when polished up!

    Heres a few of pics of my most recent builds / projects.

    205 Gti, Mi16 Engine, my most extensive build.






    Honda CRX SiR - Import, 1.6 Vtec 160 bhp, full of JDM goodies.





    And the 330d Sport. My current drive, but on its way out.

    Well i live here, but not from here. My gf is though.

    Little progress today, started the paint correction. 1200 wet flatted the deeper scratches, dry 1200 on a DA, wet 3000 on a DA, then polished up with 3M Fast Cut and 3M Ultrafina.
    Some serious shine now, may be some touch ups to be done, blacks terrible for scratches etc coming back through after its been in the sun a while.
