    Just bought an 07 170bhp A3 Sport - & I'm subtle mod hungry!

    Hello everybody!

    I can't even figure out how to upload my avatar here so bear with me!!!
    This is my first ever Audi & I don't pick her up til Sat but here she be:
    IMAG0310 2.jpg

    2007 (57) 2.0tdi SE 170bhp
    62k- Garage doing the cam belt for me for free
    Cruise Control
    Bose soundsystem
    Dual Zone Climate

    This one is just an SE model in demin blue (I was originally looking for black S-Line Spec), but this had all the spec/mileage I wanted for the price & gave me a great trade in on my 1.6tdci focus. The colour is growing on me and I'm looking forward to having some power back! I had a mk4 golf GT TDI previously that I have missed since.

    I need some advice though... What are the best but most subtle mods?

    1- Alloys (What suspension would this be on, and what standard alloys can I straight swap?)

    2- Air Intake- Can anybody recommend a worthwhile upgrade?

    3-Tyres- Can anybody make a recommendation on some not too expensive premiums for the front to get the power down well?

    4-Headlights/Rear Lights - I saw something about this, but are the facelift lights a straight swap? Any complications?

    5- Anything else however small worthwhile doing?

    Please spam me with photos of anything you have.
    I've checked stickies etc but there doesn't seem to be a 'basic first mods' one?

    I'm no expert but the facelift to the latest 8P headlights needs wings, bumper, grille and headlights. Not sure an intake is worth much on a diesel?

    Lovely choice, enjoy mate.

    1. Check the sticky, coilovers and 19' alloys of your choosing, best combo imo
    2. Don't bother.
    3. Search the forum, overly discussed.
    4. Rear lights are plug and play, Front lights no go without a facelift conv
    5. Check the Sticky, Plenty of inspiration. I would say a remap is a must do.
