    Audi Virgin.....

    Hello all, just joined here as I picked up my new car last night..... 2007 A3 1.8 TFSI 160 and goddamn I'm really liking the car... I have to say 'like' because I 'love' my wife and only 'like' the car... nearly caught myself out with that last night hahaha!!!
    I don't actually know why I'm sat here writing this, I'm just gonna pop out to the shops for a while.. ;p

    Lovely car mate! And welcome to the forum. Nothing but randomness here most of the time, and everyone seems friendly enough.

    K, little bit of an update on me car...
    I've got it booked in at Awesome GTI on thursday for a good lowering on some H&R's, I got some smoked rear LED's and an S3 spoiler but that needs spraying & fitting not sure when I'll get that done.
    I'm keeping my eye out for some alu mirror caps - I want a black & chrome/silver look to the car but I'm not so sure if they'll look out of place?
    I want to get a black grill but I'm thinking of getting another grey one [much cheaper] and spray it but keeping the chrome surround, I'll spray the fog light surrounds too.
    Also much, much later [after I've re-saved] get some new front lights with LED's in em cause I likes the look of em then maybe tinker with the engine but I'm not so sure on that route yet....
    I basically just want to enhance whats already there on the outside and not make it into something it's not and definitely not chavy....
    I'll keep you posted with pics so here's the rear LED's for now, apologies for the crappy quality of the pic's

    I think they blend in much better than the red clusters, dunno, suppose we have different tastes then, eh?

    Those rear lights remind me of the American Flag... -Oh well... it IS the 4th of July, I suppose!

    Also, the two rear tyres aren't the same... that would bug the hell out of me as an owner... but it's nice to see a well loved... Umm,,,errrrr.. I mean well-LIKED 3-door!
