    New ride

    Finally back to the VAG scene. Sold the wifes honda Civic that she had for 8 years and picked up this. 2004 A4 tdi Sport 130 quattro. 67,000 miles, Full leather, RNS-E, Phone-prep, Roof mounted DVD. all for 7000 think its a bit of a bargain.

    The wheels were a shambles though previuous owner was obviously not great at parking. I was going to get a professional refurb but to be honest theres a good chance the wife would rap them off a kirb within the next few weeks. Soloution - i done them myself. Bought stuff from halfords for 30 and DIY it. They came up great for a novice. And if the wife damages one i can repair it myself. also changed the colour of the wheels to suit the car. there more gun metal/steel colour now.

    I've taken some quick pics with my phone. i'l get some better ones up soon.
