Hi all, a couple of reports that may be of interest.
First up, an 8P A3 that was put through a small protection detail.
Audi A3 2.0T – Lincoln Volkswagen Specialists Ltd
Sorry about the lack of reports recently; been flat out! Since my last write up, the F.458 Italia, I’ve done two minor corrections, been out on three maintenance trips and ticked off four protection details.
I wanted to share this one though as the car belongs to a local trusted company that I’ve worked alongside of for a few months now…
Lincoln Volkswagen Specialists Ltd. - Proud To Be Independant. - Lincoln Volkswagen Specialists Ltd
From servicing and repair, to diagnostics and performance upgrades located on the outskirts on Lincoln – LN5 9EJ.
So onto the car in question… It’s their development toy, an Audi A3 2.0 TFSi Quattro.
Currently, the car comprises of the following modifications:
REVO Stage 1 Software (taken the vehicle from 200bhp to 260bhp)
Forge Front Mount Twintercooler
Forge 11mm Wheel Spacers
Forge 330mm Big brake kit
EBC turbo grooved rear discs and Yellow stuff pads
Braided brake hoses
Brake system running DOT 5 fluid
Full super pro polly bush kit
Eibach front and rear anti roll bars
Custom wheel alignment
And future plans for the car?
A full engine rebuild and GT3071X turbo charger.
Having just completed a 2500 mile trip around Europe (Nurburgring included), it was ready for some TLC.
Interior a little grubby, too:
The plan was to fully strip back, cleanse and protect the exterior and then to fix the interior and upholstery if time allowed.
The car has done quite a bit of track time; wheels seriously caked and the lower body panels were covered in road tar and rubber.
Usual approach in the wash stages – wheels > shuts > pre-wash > wash > tar > clay > dry.
Numerous applications of CarPro Iron-X were needed to fix the heavily pitted rims.
Once washed, AutoSmart Tardis used to help lift the stubborn tar deposits:
Next, Iron-X ‘Soap gel’ used alongside an old foam finishing pad to further deep cleanse the paintwork and remove inorganic contaminants.
Finally, in the car was clay barred to remove any remaining traces of foreign contaminants.
In this case, tree sap!
Engine bay cleaned with a degreaser and later dressed once dry and inside.
