    My A3 2.0 TDI

    Right then people as promised here is my Built thread
    So i have had the car about 18 month now... bought it like this:..

    then after a few weeks got coilovers fitted new grill and had a bit of a play with the audio and came out with this..:





    and i decided to get some new wheels:...


    and then i got a few bits done over xmas and run on the winters...

    then i ended up with this........ after many hours over the xmas period...





    also did a few bts to the A pillars


    then when i got the money got these :D:

    then got these bad boys done

    then after nationals and DC i fancied a bit of a change so whilst me bumper was away having work to it Me Nimrod and Kris decided to go a little KRAZY and did this to a spare bumper !!


    then i got this back




    and this is how it looks now



    Enjoy people i will keep it up to date as and when things happen lol..

    Enjoy.
    Thanks for the photos Kev car looks lovely. Lava grey is the best colour haha. Car looks good, and great stance, what spring or coilovers do you have? & how low the car?

    Sorry mate im gonna have to pinch your idea! I'll be buying a spare front badge on monday and going to get the spray cheers. Mate i love the rear end photo by ritz shows off the colour plus the stance and the alloys. Top car mate. I'll drop you a photo once i've done the badge to my car. Is your roof sprayed or wrapped? Also did you get the spoiler done or just the roof?

    Thanks for the help
