    Post Build Thread: Patrick's A3 8P in Black

    Hi everyone, new to this forum

    I bought a Audi A3 e (1.9 tdi)

    When I got it, it looked like this:
    first bought.jpg

    Than managed to get some new alloys, I was debating on Rotiforms or 3SDM's:
    new wheels.jpg
    I didn't like the standard seats, managed to get a bargain :

    Finally lowering, front wheels are going for refurb on Monday Atomic wheels:

    When Waxed and polished I will add some more photos maybe some photoshoot, need to change tyres probably 205/40/18r as running 8,5 all around, also looking at S-line front bumper

    Any comments welcome

    Regards

    Patrick

    Hi, Today I went to get my alloys refurbed unfortunately that's what Atomic wheels guy's spotted.

    Refurb plus welding £180+, £177 new one so that's a new one then.
    I'm thinking about running 9,5 j at the back would ET40 be suitable on 225/40/18r tyre ?
    atm I'm running ET42 on 8,5 j all around.

    Thanks

    looks good, the s line bumper will make a big difference then you'd need to change the tailpipe for exhaust or new backbox.
