    New Car....New Mods....New Pics

    Picked up my A3 1.8T S Line on Monday. It is a 2007 reg in Dolphin Grey with loads of extras. Pics at the dealership:





    Already knew the extra bits I wanted to buy to make it how I wanted it so got straight on with it and nipped into my local dealership to pick up my Black Optics Grill and a leather armrest (got a great deal on them aswell ) and after much struggling, got them both fitted yesterday

    Before


    After





    And today, the sun was shining so gave the car a quick clean. Process used:

    Snowfoamed
    APC'd 4:1 on lower half and wheels
    Washed with Megs Gold Class shampoo
    Dried with Sonus drying towel and Megs Last touch
    Vacummed and wiped down interior

    Pics:













    Thanks for looking

    Looks good with the optic grill!I do like your alloys aswell! But i think the dark Rs4 alloys would like good with your colour of car. And window tints! I'm having all my windows tinted 3 back windows darker than the front. I know your not allowed the front two but i dont really care stupid law if you ask me

    Very nice mate!

    Used snow foam today on my car for the first time - well impressed with it - makes a huge difference doing this before a wash - you could see the foam/dirt running down the side of the car.

    Thanks for the comments chaps

    Grill was from a main dealer

    Got armrest with leather lid and full optics grill with plate holder for 325. Think RRP was 400 I know I could have probably got them cheaper if I waited for them to come up second hand on ebay but Im impatient

    Black grill suits very well. Always liked those wheels too. Lamin-x would look great!

    what is this lamin-x? I believe it is something to do with tinting the headlights?
