    Also, the pointy bits that stick out either side of the lower centre vent thing stick out more on the S line.
    This is so you can crack your ankle on them when you're trying to get your wheelie bin out.

    Then again you're talking to a guy who had an epiphany 4 weeks ago & changed his life to a more healthy style.

    I might have an epiphany in the near future if I have a bit of spare time.

    I don't have spare time either mate, but sometimes you just have to do these things & make time for the better good

    Only just noticed this thread & have to say Congrats mate! you've got the best colour available! though my opinion may be slightly biased as I have the same shade & love it.

    I'm gonna suggest you get some Dodo Juice Blue Velvet wax (if you haven't already), it gives a deep shine & really enhances the different blues in the pearl on sunny days.

    Fantastic work with the spec upgrades so far, it's looking a lot better than when you got it. The s-line front bumper has different shaped fog housings and the bumper surrounds of the fogs has squared off ridges, but the splitter overhangs aren't really any more enhanced than your current ones.

    Keep up the good work.

    Not for the time being I'm afraid!
    New wheels are my next step though, once the tyres on these give up!
    Other than that I'll be just attempting to keep her nice and clean and try some of that wax Artimus had - it looks superb!

    Don't mean to hijack the thread here, but get yourself some Prima Amigo and Vics Concours Wax. Wax has very good durability and looks awesome on Black!

    Yeah I really want a set of Rota's but don't quite have the funds at the moment! We will see how much money I can save over the next few months. Really fancy a genuine set!

    Hi all,

    Not had any updates on the car for some time, and I wasn't planning to - then last week happened!
    My mate had recently picked up a 2005 A4 Avant 2.0 TDI 140, and was telling me that he thought it was faster than stock.
    He digs up a receipt from the previous owner showing a revo remap and 185 horses!

    He took me out for a spin and needless to say I had to get one myself.
    After Wednesday and £360, I have now got myself a remapped A3.

    I was very nervous due to the miles the car had done, and hearing about turbo and clutch woes, but it's definitely worth the cash!
    She properly shifts now, 3rd feels like 2nd gear!
    It was done by an agent of Celtic Tuning, who claim that the map produces 206bhp.
    Now I don't know if it does anywhere near that...but it certainly feels very fast!

    Another small update was that I fixed an annoying door cracking/creaking sound from both sides!
    There was a thread on here saying that using a black crayon round the felt at the top of the door fixes this issue so I picked up a Crayola pack in Sainsburys earlier today. I was genuinely staggered when it worked! No more cracking noise from either door, which is hugely better and makes the car lovely to drive even in silence!

    That's all from me for the time being!

    And a picture of the car recently after a proper clean inside and out!
