I picked up my new motor (A4 3.0 V6 avant) a week ago and im loving it i brought it home and the other halfs first comment was "oh its an estate my dad drives an estate...." ggrrr.
That aside im a big fan of the avant, i've seen some modified ones that look awesome.
Here's some pics of it day after i got it home:
Im a mechanic and im lucky enough that i have my own keys to the work shops so i have use of anything i want when i want (outside workshop hours) which includes the spray shop. First little mod i carried out was to change the OEM HID bulbs for 8000k ones :
new one on the right
Next thing i did was to change a load of the the front suspension arms and both front drop links along with a new temp sensor to get the dash gauge working again.
This was followed by whipping the drivers front seat out and stripping it down to repair the heater element for the heated seat. This was a mission due to it having leather sporty bucket type seats with loads of adjustable bits, as i was taking it apart and stripping it down i was getting more and more nervous about getting it back together but it was all good in the end and the seat works perfect again:
Then Monday i decided to attack the exterior so ordred a set of Apex 40mm lowering springs and a set of A4 B5 spring perches (gain 10-15mm more drop up front) they arrived yesterday so fitted them last night:
well chuffed with how it sits now.
Also monday i ordered a new front wing as for some random reason the drivers front wing has bad rust (the only bit on the whole car) that arrived yesterday too so at lunch i prep'ed it and whacked it in the spray booth ready for spraying which i did this evening before leaving work:
And the final thing i ordered Monday the most exciting thing i ordered was the FULL Votex kit from TPS Audi, not cheap but id rather it fit perfect and looks right rather than having to bodge it about, tonight when i got home i wet flated it all ready for spraying friday after work I'll then give it a good baking in the booth so its fully gone off ready for me to fit it all this Satuday:
Today i ordered a couple of other bits that will hopefully turn up by the weekend LED side light bulbs and LED fog light bulbs.
Opinions wanted as im unsure on this particular mod it's probably already been done by other's here's a novice photoshop:
not my car just a pic i found on the net
stock votex look:
Mod front end votex (i have stock grill but will be dechromed satin black)
Hopefully i will be able to post some finished pics Sunday fingers crossed....
