    My First Audi A3 1.8tfsi lava grey

    Hi everyone


    Thought I would to a forum on my Audi A3 1.8tfsi 3 door lava grey 2008 model car. The point of this is so people can get to know me better and also to get people thoughts on my car. Also know my name when i come to the Scotland meets.

    My name is David Ferrel and I'am 20 just know. So not anything special about my username Davidf92 . I'am a engineering apprentice at Selex ES in Crewe Toll Edinburgh. I live in the Broxburn area of West Lothian so i come to the Central Scotland meets. Also i go to other car club meets e.g Crail or the Livingston area so if you see me just come over for a talk.


    This is my first Audi. I got it back in August 2012. I have always liked the Audis on how they look and the interior styling. When I was looking for a new car it was between the Audi and the seat Leon but the Audi won with the looks and the engine.


    Anyway here are some photos of my car.

    Having a lava grey Audi is nice to look at when it is clean and polished. It seems to change colour by the sun, some days is looks black then light grey and also a small bight purple.

    Just know the only MOD that i have on my car is the BlackVue dr380g-HD camera and it is the best thing that i have bought. Has is is handy to have video of accident has it happens. Just know i trying to hard line it into my fuse box.

    Next I'am thinking of getting new alloys for my car. But I'am finding it hard to find ones i like and for a good price. If all else fails i just keep the alloys i have got, just need fixed. Here is the shape that I'am thing off, i thing metal grey will go will with my car.

    In the near future I'am thinking of getting a stage 1 remap and a new air filter. Also i might do something to the grill and the fog light surround trim parts. Carbon fiber . Also might get a milltek exhaust. These are the ideas i have got but it all come down to what i have the money for

    Looks great.
    Mines also a Lava Grey but 2.0TFSI also from 2008.
    I think you should change your alloys.
    Consider getting the RS3 alloys, i plan to get them i think:

    i think they will look great with our Grey color.

    Please don't put black wheels on, they just don't look right.

    That picture above should be explanation enough - especially with the tiny brakes.

    Nice car buddy, welcome along. If you look at my signature at the bottom of this message this will show my instructions on how to change the front grilles on your A3. It's pretty easy. I also have various grilles and fog grilles so drop me a PM if interested.
