    Newbie looking for advice!

    Hey guys I've just bought my first Audi and couldn't be happier with it, but I'm looking for advice on making it my own any recommendations on things I could get done to it? Cheers

    Very nice, looks good in red and the wheels suit well!

    As for mods, you'll soon get a never ending list from reading this forum :-) but my opinion would be to get the rear windows tinted for a starter.

    Hey pal, welcome to the site... I'm not too far away from you in Balornock...

    I used to have a red a3 2.0tfsi quattro....

    Tinted windows, black grill, lowered suspension, painted calipers.. and the rims of your choice is the way to go...!

    That is a cracker of a car! Appreciate the help just looking forward to getting it and getting out a good drive! Think the first few things ill get is the tinted windows the badges done and a few other things, can't do to much with it having a warranty on it.

    Cheers... just the usual, done the full led lighting kit all round, refurbed the calipers and hubs, got the back windows tinted, black optics grill...

    Working on a wheel project at the moment, quite a gamble, but the car will look amazing... Just watch this space, if I pull it off i'm gonna start a full new thread about it...

    Just running the standard 262bhp or 265ps... Floating with the idea of getting it stage 1 re-mapped...Usually will take it just over the 300bhp mark... Theres a guy on here called broadster that does all that stuff, round about the borders if your ever interested in going down that route

    you can also get the forge blow off valve for that.. the pssst everytime you change gear... dunno what it would be like on an automatic though? Had it on my red car, but to tell you the truth... I hated it by the time I sold the car, getting old now and like things nice and quiet lol.... no slouches at 200bhp though! You'll have some fun!
