    Wink Picking her up Tuesday ...........

    1.jpg2.jpg6.jpg12.jpg13.jpg20.jpg17.jpg18.jpg

    Hi all bought this today A3 5dr Sport Tdi 2.0 2007 with 71k.
    Tuesday is the pick up day after they service it, cambelt and wheel aligning.
    Clutch and dual mass flywheel just changed.
    I have checked audi extended warranty is it worth it ?
    Do i need to do anything to keep it running?

    Thanks all

    Really nice car, I liked the colour but instead opted for a silver one from a closer garage for £7k with 60,000 miles lol

    Mate the sound system is crazy. So clear

    Yh tints are legal, on the rears can go as dark as you wish, and the front must allow 75% light through but iv not touched these as they are already slightly tinted as standard.

    Iv been looking at the honeycomb black grill on ebay, i do wanna get one of those... Didnt think of plasti-dipping, aint sure how that works or how it will turn out.

    I need a spoiler aha rear looks a bit plain and chunky without it

    And yeah i wanna get my wheels sprayed dark grey.

    Keep thinking wether or not to black wrap the roof too :/ ImageUploadedByTapatalk1389607596.840422.jpg

    Thats why i suggested it, had one myself before and the quality is top notch. Good alternate if you don't want to plasti dip or want a cheap mod but actually makes it look like you've spent more than you have.

    Ah bad times, drop them an email and see when there is more stock due in. At the price there at i can see why they sell out to be honest. Defiantly worth hanging on for more stock though.

    Because if the cars are stolen then they would have to go to a petrol station, thus being caught on camera. Unless they bring their own fuel, in which they'd probably be seen on the side of the road filling up a stolen car from a jerry can.

    Got the car YEYEYYEYYE.
    Had a service, cambelt, water pump, rear brake pads, and wheel alignment.
    But i have a small issues with the rear passanger side door.
    It opens from inside but will not open from outside.

    And i have no Aux input or cd changer in the glove box. Is the cd changer in the head for this double din unit?
    Any cheap way to add aux input? I have a 16gb ipod nano can sacrifice :D
    All others do.
    Am i an idiot or something is wrong........

    Press the open button on the keyfob twice to unlock the passenger door so you can open it from the outside, or if you're actually in the car you can press the button located beside your door handle

    Had a look at the door. It looks like the exterior handle does not pull the lock inside to open it.
    But it works oke from inside.
    I might need to take it back to the garage

    Picking her up Tuesday ...........

    Back with and update
    The door sometimes opens sometimes doesn't.
    I can hear the central lock clicking in the door but it's not unlocking.
    Will drive in the garage Sunday.


    I have to exhaust ends in the back.
    Paper shows it's 140 bhp but I read somewhere that only the 170 has 2 exhausts next to each other.

    But this is one serious car here folks ).
