    The Story So Far

    Here we have my 55' plate A3 2.0 TDI Sport, Deep Sea Blue Pearl. Bought the car about 3 months ago from Honda. Only had 37k on the clock too. Interior was immaculate, exterior pretty immaculate too. Had to have a tow-bar removed too before i picked up the car though.

    Pretty standard car really, only done a few little things to it at the mo.

    So Far:
    S3 Alloy Mirrors
    Arm-rest
    6 CD Changer
    Mud-flaps
    Full Audio install - JVC HU, Morel 6.5" 2 way components, JL Audio 12" Sub and Hertz EP4 Amp installed into the wheel well.

    Would like to do more to it, preferably the exterior but everything is on hold for now. I'll wait til Christmas i think to treat myself lol!

    Comments Please!

    First couple of pics are the day i picked up the car.

    Hope you like!








    Boot Install



    Cheers

    I like the sub install. Not too showy. How powerful is it?

    Yeah thats what i like about it too Staz. Thinkin about goin for the EMMA Entry Level show, not be til next year though. Its set up for sound quality rather than sound pressure level.

    Sub has a 300w thermal power handling.

    Thanks 347.

    The HU is the JVC KD-R801. I went for it because it does go very well with the interior. As much as i hate to say this, it kinda goes well the piano black inlays, unfortunately ha! Still looking to swap them for silver alloy ones though lol!

    Not a problem, will get some tomoro from my brother. As i say it needs a little clean up but i'll get that done. Also with you being in Essex P&P price will be a lot, i'll check the exact weight and price it up for you ok.

    Regards

    Very much correct Boydie, the spare wheel is currently in my brothers shed lol!

    They had to build a false floor on top of a false floor because the wheel well wasnt quite deep enough, needed another 18mm or so.

    Not a problem 'mhill', thanks anyway.

    Air Vents

    Well after being outbid on a set of silver alloy air vents, i decided to make my own, with help from my brother.

    It simple and saves you a lot of money, and if im honest they look totally spiffing lol!

    Regards the painting, i put 2 coats on. There is also the spray paint which is also very effective.

    Took step by step photos too so here they go.

    Firstly these are the products you will need to prduce such stunning reps lol!



    And to make:-












    Hope you like.

    Cheers
