    New Member, go easy on me.(now with pics)

    Hey everyone.
    Just a quick message to say hi, and alittle bit of background info on me and my previous cars.
    I live in Sunny Essex, and work for BP Oil in Milton Keynes (which is the reason for my lastest perchase).
    My car history is as follows:
    Vauxhaul Nova SR
    Citreon Saxo VTR
    Toyota Celica 190 t-sport
    Seat Leon Cupra R - remapped to 259bhp/277torque.
    Now my new purchase: a 2006 Audi A4 2.0TDI (140) S-line in black.

    Have been the member on other forums and they have been most helpful, how many post do i need to make before i can post pics? So i can show you guys my new toy.

    Hi & !!!

    As far as i am aware you can post photos as soon as you join - but you need a place to put them - like a photobucket account.

    As for mods i have a list as long as my arm, but not the money to do them yet.

    Another quick question, in my user CP. Why can't i see the list of subscriptions to the threads i have created or replied on??

    Looks lovely, well ware. Looks the same as mine from the outside

    I wouldn't be a fan of saxo's, some of the celica's are nice and I love the LCR. Did you mod it at all?

    Mods i'm thinking of so far are:
    AMD remap, new exhaust, window tints, new stereo with bluetooth (for those long journey's). I've also been pointed in the direction on the S4 Rear ARB. That should do for the time being.

    The saxo was my second car and my first atempt at modding, and i think it looked pretty good, not to overboard and chavy like some you see. The celica was lovely, handled like a dream after i swapped the springs but just to hard work. The LCR was my fav by far and i really didn't want to sell but i had to due to work commitments and the need for an economical car. I did a few mods to the LCR, i had a forge 007 fitted, along with a pipercross panel filter and an AMD remap bringing it up to 250bhp with 277torque, plus a Kenwood headunit with ipod adaptor and an S3 strutt brace.

    Now onwards and upwards to begin the modding on the A4

    I love the reflection pictures, especially the way it was so good you needed to use paint to get rid of the number plate!

    Cheers mate, i'm loving the A4. The rags are microfible cloths that were thrown on the floor after use of each product. New and old (but all clean) for different parts of the clean and different products used.

    The LCR was an animal and is by far the favourite car i have ever own. Defo a sheep in wolves clothing.

    Nice car... now drop it low on some 19s hehe

    I've just bought a load of cleaning kit to detail mine with... the previous owner (and me to an extent) have neglected the paint and now my car's officially 3 years old, I thought I'd give it a pampering lol

    EDIT: looking at your pics, I think you should do the clear corner mod or keep an eye out on eBay for late-spec headlights - makes such a difference!

    yeah was thinking about doing this cause don't really like the orange indicator (i'm guessing thats what you mean). What do i need to do this, i'm guessing its not just clear bulbs needed (like my last car)?????? Advice on parts would be excellent.

    Yeah going to tini he windows in the new year, aswell as getting an AMD remap. They are the 1st 2 things on my list. I might get some new wheels in the summer, and then use the originals during the winter months.

    Yeah the late-spec lights have a clear indicator lense, rather than the amber you have. Against the black, it really freshens up the look.
