    My A3

    I think it is about time that I posted pics and spec of my 2.0TDI A3

    I would say its 90% complete - I just have to get it remapped and source some aluminium trim for the interior, I am also considering a 2005> rear bumper splitter (with the black centre) and maybe a facelift or flat bottomed steering wheel.

    Anyway, I hope you like and all comments and suggestions welcome ( I know it will not to be everyones cup of tea but I think I have modified it perfectly and subtley)


    When I got it:



    After 6months of ownership:



    Milltek Cat Back resonated exhaust

    Engine:

    Very nice Boydie, I'm very interested in the S3 gear knob and hand brake sleeve. How hard is it to install those?

    How do you take the hand sleeve off?

    Thanks in advance.

    thanks a lot for the feedback guys - much appreciated since most of you do not like the modifying scene much!

    the hand brake and gear knob are an easy fit - the hand brake is slightly harder but there are instructions - basically you take a thin screw driver to the back of it and push down or up to release the clip (which you will see in the replacement knob)

    the gear knob is easy once you see how to remove the original one!

    thanks again :D

    i think the mudflaps at the back are bobbins - would look cleaner without

    Looking good - those wheels are pure sex !

    I priced up the flat bottomed wheel from the TT with VAGPARTS (I'd need the TT one as I've got DSG) and including the bag (as my 05 has the earlier shape) you are looking at about 800 plus VAT.

    Alrite boydie,

    I think a new S-Line bumper on the front would finish off the car.

    Thanks

    latest purchase:


    unfortunately it did not include the gear surround but a quick phone call to www.vagparts.com and it was quickly sorted with the ASN 10% discount also I had forgotten my account number which they sorted out so thumbs up to them!

    also, some pics from a local Audio Show which I came 2nd in Entry Level SQ - my first time competing so I am very pleased!

    Quick question what is your opinion on the "Milltek Cat Back Exhaust - resonated!"

    Made any difference to the exhaust note ? I know it's a diesel before anyone starts, but can you improove the exhaust note of an oil burner ?

    Concidering one for my 2.0TDi.

    Wheels first though and I have seen the perfect candidate from Momo.

    the exhaust is nice - mainly a cosmetic pleasure but there is a little extra noise but nothing annoying or embaressing!

    unfortunately you do get the wooshy BOOO noise in lower gears when changing
