    First post new A3 owner

    Hi everyone, just thought I would post my first post on here having just got my A3 sport, so far i am really liking the A3 compared to my astra that I had before this.
    so far I have had the windows tinted and changed the standard alloys for a set of rotor reps but i am not to sure what to do as my next step?
    I am Trying to get everything to blend together so it doesn't look over the top.

    Thank you

    Hi Lee, welcome aboard.

    Well, you've already started off on the right foot with the alloys and tints, nice job!

    As yours is a Sport model you could put the S-Line rear diffuser on. I have the single and twin exhaust version for sale if that would be of interest to you, see my classified ads.
    Richard has done this mod here - New to Audi - A3 2.0 TDI Sport

    You'll also notice in Richards thread that he has added an S-line rear spoiler so that's one to do as well although the spoiler part is more difficult to source and by the time you've had it re-sprayed, can cost a fair bit as well. You can sometimes pick up the s-line spoiler on eBay if you are lucky but they are popular so get snapped up pretty quickly.

    Those are 2 of the popular exterior mods but there are plenty of other mods that you can do!

    Thanks for the replies, a3 Kent thank you for some ideas that sounds like a good plan wasn't too sure if I wanted to go down the sline route but I will look under the classified ads now at them.

    Yeah they are reps but are very good quality, I swapped my standard 17 inch alloys what came with the sport trim for them and paid a bit towards I really like them though

    Well I like them. Suits your car being white
    Not a fan of them on black cars tho.
    Can't really beat the price of the reps ...
    Full set for less than 1 oem rotor can't be bad

    Welcome a board. Its a great forum, everyone is super helpful.
    Nice motor. Definitely could consider dropping it a little.
    That's my next step along with new rims.
