    New car!

    Hi all,

    Just thought I'd add a new thread here and introduce myself since I've been browsing these forums for a while whilst searching for my ideal car (obviously an Audi A3!). I'm Dave, currently living in South Wales (land of the sheep!) and I have just returned from the Bristol area having bought a beautiful Black 2010 Audi A3 2.0 TDI 140BHP (stop start).
    Suffice to say I'm very impressed with it having test driven both the petrol 1.6 and diesel 1.6; There is absolutely no comparison and I think it is completely worth spending the extra to get the 2.0 TDI just to put the 'smile' on your face! Coincidentally, I have also test driven the 170 BHP and in reality I can't say that there is a huge amount in it. Perhaps the 170 has slightly more poke if anything but I opted instead for the 140 due to its smooth power delivery and favourable mpg.

    Anyway, here are some pics:











    Just in-case you're wondering, I do have a few subtle mod ideas such as:

    - Rear and side tints
    - S line alloys (18")
    - Black addition grille
    - S line spoiler
    - Plus many more things I'm sure!

    Even if I don't manage to get any of these mods done in time I really hope to make it to AITP on August 11th - Is anyone else travelling down from South Wales? Maybe we could get a convoy stretching down the M4!

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Welcome along mate.

    Nice car, unfortunately I can no longer help with the Black grille. I do however have the S-Line diffuser which will fit your car.

    Fellow ASN member Riichard has done the same on his - New to Audi - A3 2.0 TDI Sport. He's also added the S-Line spoiler you wanted as well.

    Here's the classified ad - Classifieds: Audi A3 S-Line Rear Diffuser Single Exhaust

    Thanks for the welcome guys, I'm sure I'll be posting here more often now that I'm part of the Audi Elite

    How much did you used to supply the black grille for Kent? I've seen them on ebay for around the 160 mark so might go for that.
    As for the S-Line diffuser; it looks amazing and will definitely go well with the spoiler. I might be going abroad over the next few months but when I return they will definitely both be on my to do list!

    Cheers,

    Dave
