Just thought I would introduce myself here firstly. I am Iain, I am 24 and come from Darlington, Co. Durham. I recently bought a 2008 57 plate A3 2.0tdi 170 in brilliant red with 52k on the clock. I am not mad into mods like I was when I was younger or our kid is but I am planning to do a few tasetful ones. I must say I am enjoying the Audi experience and it feels much more refined than the Leon FR which I nearly got another one of.
So far its had a ECU re-map, pressed metal plates with surrounds and has been debadged, plus a few other bits and pieces to tidy it up. Its going to Custom Tints soon to have the rear three windows 65% tints. i also need to replace the rear wiper washer motor as it appears not to be working.
It came with 18'' S5 reps and I have a set of 17'' A3 alloys I plan to get winter tyres fitted too. The alloys are mint apart from front drivers side which was kerbed. These have crap Jinyu tyres on frotn and back though so I am looking to get either Pirelli P Zeros, Avon ZV5 or Nankangs fitted on the front soon. I may be interested in some part worns though if they have atleast 6mm on them all round. I am also on the look out for either a set of MY09 (which I think suit the car best perhaps?) or MY11 rear lights to go on it.
Generally the paintwork is in great shape minus a small overun on the bootlid (factory?), a couple of chips on the leading edge of the bonnet and a scratches to the boot and door ahndles. I am going to correct the paintwork and maybe get the front bumper resprayed to cover the two areas where it has chipped and the lacquer has peeled.
