    Jamie's 3.0 TDI V6 Progress Thread

    Having owned the car for about 1.5 months now thought I would make a progress thread for people to read and share what I do/will do to the car.

    Which is a Phantom Black, SE, 2008 on a '57 reg. Possibly one of the earliest B8's.

    Spec includes MMI 2G, NAV, Parking system plus, Rear view camera Audi drive select, Audi side assist, Audi lane assist, Heated seats, Bang & Olufsen sound system, Xenons, DRL's, Adaptive lights, Interior light pack, Adaptive cruise control, Audi hold assist, 18" wheels.

    Pretty much straight away after I bought it I had the check emission light appear, turns out it was the swirl flap linkages that need replacing. Using Audi's radiate kit which was £9 a side I replaced the easy side first which didn't fix it so had to do the other side which was a pita. But it's done now and know light since

    2 mods I have done are fitted S line tread plates and heko wind deflectors.

    More mods still need to be fitted including;

    Black headliner and pillar trims

    Audi accessories spoiler (taped in place)

    Audi S line blades, stoneguards of side skirts whatever you want to call them.
    uploadfromtaptalk1386854313035.jpg

    Interior LED set has recently arrived, might wait until I fit the headlining and fit these at the same time. Waiting on a set of leds for the number plate too.

    Debadged the rear apart from the quattro badge

    Also done the usual stuff with vcds

    Lap timer

    Needle sweep
    Cornering fogs
    Adaptive brake lights
    batterer meter
    uploadfromtaptalk1386854631240.jpg
    Welcome screen
    Etc.

    Couple of pics, did have more but I dropped my phone in the toilet

    Will be getting a new clutch and flywheel soon to avoid disappointment when I will eventually get it remapped.

    Already bought the flywheel but the luk clutch is out of stock everywhere!

    Great idea starting a build thread, You can put everything in one place and see the car change as you mod it.
    Is the spoiler an Audi part or aftermarket as the boot lid already has quite a pronounced lip to give the same kind of effect as a spoiler.
    Also how many miles has your car done if you thinking of changing out the clutch ?.

    Genuine Audi accessory, mines a SE so doesn't have the 'built in' lip like the s lines or s4

    83k now, as I said it's just a precaution before a remap as I don't want the disappointment of clutch/fly failure after a remap. But there is a very slight judder in 1st and reverse so I know after a remap it's going to highlight that

    Bet you could find one in the dealers.But you wouldn't like the price. Good job you don't really need it at the moment.

    Standard

    uploadfromtaptalk1387444215613.jpg

    All black (ignore quattro badge will be black too)

    uploadfromtaptalk1387444263348.jpg

    Audi rings left chrome

    uploadfromtaptalk1387444291958.jpg

    I know my tow eye cover is missing eagle eyed people! :D

    Thoughts? Is just a photoshop so would probably look better when done.....

    Rear rings black or not touch them?

    Was it hard to fit the LED interior package? What lights did you replace and where did you get them from?
    Nice looking car by the way.

    Not to hi-jack Jamies thread or anything. But I upgraded the interior lights to LED also, done the front and rear light. I got them from Trups, great service and excellent quality. They are very easily fitted plenty of guides and videos to help!

    Haven't done it yet, debating weather to get the RS4 style grill.


    These are the leds I bought http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=251063528984

    No problems with warning lights and very bright white.

    Very very easy fitting, there is even a guide somewhere....

    Humm the RS4 style grill would be tasty now!

    LED interior bulbs should be standard far better looking and much brighter as you said.

    Here is a link to a video guide might be useful:

    Thanks for the Info guys. I don't have the lighting pack (and I presume it would be a pain to retrofit?) but I defo fancy upgrading the front and rear interior lights.

    By the way, this is where I got my RS4 grille from (hard to get in gloss unless you want an all mesh copy from China):

    If you want to retro fit, headlining needs cutting to allow sunvisor lights, then wiring etc

    How was the fitment of that grill? Did you have to remove bumper to replace?

    Also did you pay import vat on that considering it comes from USA?

    Well tbh I haven't had a chance to fit it yet as I'm still out of the country for another 3 weeks. The only way to fit these grills is by removing the bumper which I'm assured is a fairly easy job.
    I had to pay £8 import tax and £8 Parcelforce admin fee!

    I don't have any parking sensors but you can get the grille that comes with the two parking sensors holders for no cost option. I have seen some of the guys for the grilles with them on here.

    I've just fitted a facelift RS4 grille a few weeks back and the removal of the front bumper was much easier than I expected to be honest.

    Just a case of removing the plastics holding it top and bottom, then the arches are loosened off and the bolts inside the arches are loosened and the bumper popped off. Took me and a friend 2 hours to remove, change the grille and replace. We'd never touched the A4 bumper before so we didn't think that was a bad amount of time.

    I'd recommend doing it with a mate if only to help lift off the bumper without bending it to keep the paint from cracking or chipping.

    Is there any sensors in the bumper you have to unplug or watch out for? I don't have parking sensors so that's one less thing to worry about

    I think that the parking sensors were the main ones... I'd say it's best to disconnect your fog ligts before you remove the bumper as well though, just to save pulling on wires. I seem to think there was the thermometer sensor cable as well but can't be sure. If you just pull the bumper away carefully you'll soon see anything still attached. All the wires have plenty play in them so as long as you're careful you shouldn't damage anything.

    Not that I've seen because they're a completely different shape I believe.

    Is there an RS4 style fog light grills?
    There are, but they aren't cheap.

    What did you do? I was thinking of dremmelling out all the bits of material between the honeycombs and painting it gloss black but wasn't sure how it would look with the foglight fixture behind it...

    I basically dremelled away the back plate of the grille surround and stick in some aftermarket mesh.
    Next step is to fill gaps, and spray in gloss black.

    Ah, you have the pre-facelift. I'll have to pull them out and have a look behind to make sure it won't look stupid before I tackle it.

    Yours looks good though!
