    Hey all been around for awhile on here, but because of me being in 1 state and my car in another i havent had pics to post,
    working a ski season,
    so here is my car with a few mods i have had done.
    list is:

    My Car IS: 2010 A3 Sports back 2L TDI- Comfort pack, Lava Grey:

    (01) Drl Bi Xenon's (had them replaced after i got hit) - (02) Led Interior upgrade thanks to T8ups - (03) RNSE - (04) Reverse Camera.
    (05) Sline Hatch Spoiler - (06) S3 Pedals - (07) OSIR Rest Pedal - (08) Iphone 4s Arm Rest Charger

    Mods To Come:

    (01) RS4 Start Button - (02) FBMFSW - (03) Sline DSG Gear Knob (NHN MOD) - (04) AMI4 RNSE - (05) H11 Phillips Diamond Vision Fogs - (06) RS4 or Rortor Wheels 18inch - (09) Full Dyna Audio Custom Stero Soundproofing The LOT - LOVE MUSIC

    Thanks mate, more mods done mid to late october when i get back from the ski season, likely in the following order:

    1. Wheels - RS4 OR Rotors 18inch with Conti Tyres
    2. RS Style Wheel & Air Bag With Silver DSG Paddles
    3. MTM Remap
    4. Gear Knob & New H11 Fog Bulbs

    and money permitting - AMI For RNSE With: 2 Focal Amps, Audison Bit-one Digital Processor,Dyna 3ways Front, dyna 12inch in custom inclosure so i dont lose much boot space. all sound proofed with Focal Bam & Dynamatt.

    After all that not really sure what's left might get the grab handles covered it leather, and coil-overs.

    Any Recommendations greatly appreciated

    Hey all, just some updates on mod progress. sorry been away just been a massive last few weeks since returning back from a season in the snow fields,

    Latest Mods:

    * MTM Vtech ECU Tune, now the car is pushing 185Hp and is even better on fuel, its amazing
    * Philips H11 Diamond Vision Fog Lights.

    Mods Coming In Next Few Weeks:

    * Gear Knob change to Stronic new style..
    * Ami Install
    * Sort out rev camera so it works in rev gear and dosent have to be selected from RNSE (fingers crossed can do it)
    * RS4 Button install.

    thats it for this year im pretty sure, wheels mabe if i can find them at a good price, and a new flat bottom RS3 wheel if i can find one.

    Back Again!!!!!!!!!! recently purchased some RS6 Wheels with Conti Tyres 18inch and had my calipers professionally painted (4 coats of high heat paint, and mechanically cleaned, so hoping it will hold up for awhile and look as good as it dose now) and AMI finally added,
    how ever it came at the expense of my reversing camera, can anyone tell me how to wire up a AMI & Reverse camera at the same time? on a RNSE 2010 version. ?????????? PLEASE

    Stero getting installed in next few weeks, will post more pics then.
    also looking for a Flat Bottom DSG Steering wheel, if anyone can helpl me out, (im in Australia)

    Let me know what you guys things of latest additions PLEASEIMG_1363.jpgIMG_1364.jpgIMG_1366.jpgIMG_1369.jpgIMG_1370.jpgIMG_1371.jpgIMG_1373.jpgWheels After.jpgWheels B4.jpg

    I do have the guys phone number but I'll be honest if you don't want to pay £300 there isn't any point giving you his number.

    He sells these into Audi dealerships as they can't get any extended leather items.
