    my a3, trying to mke it a 1 off haha

    life started of as this



    and then first thing i bought were alloys, some nice gallardo reps (each to their own)

    it looks clean but the bumpers had spider crack in it and so on , then during stone chips peeled my bonets laquer off and it went like this


    so had a primered bonnet for a while which i use as a chalk boared haha, but then it got some slammage and a cupra splitter, i also then smoothed the front number plate and relocated it



    and then the big change began, i decided to go satin black as i havent seen many a3's in this coolour




    and for a bunch of 18 year olds in a garage ii recon it came out ok haha :P

    so at the momment it looks like this






    its not finished atm, needs more coats in february towards UD, will have custome one off exhaust built and smoothed rear end, new wheels (see samle below) with some poke , hopefuly a reamped interior, and some tints, THIS CARS BUILT ON A BUDGET and thts y it may look like a pile of WxxNK lol

    but heres a preview of new wheels but will be different colour



    current spec
    DV - was on it when i bought it :/
    panel filter pipercross
    cat back 3 inch system one backbox deleted silencer
    satin black paint
    Lambo reps 8x18 et 35
    false floor pioneer setup gold plated
    Audi Sport Leather interior
    HID conversion with headlights that has the projector lamp
    Audi TT clutch and flywheel
    Jom coilovers
    polished inlet manifold
    custom side engine covers
    smoothed front and relocated number plate

    nothing majour but plans for february
    -recoat
    -smoothed rear end
    -custom exhaust
    -new wheels and spaced out
    -tinted windows
    -cleaned bay
    -good service haha
    -whiteline ARB so i can go lower haha

    and hopefully once my alloys and other parts have sold i can get a remap and do something bout my brakes and my interior sometime

    negative and posative comments are welcomed haha

    Nice budget project mate, looks quite aggresive, certainly different from the usual audi projects. Personally i would match the wing mirrors to the body colour and i prefer the lambo reps for the current look of the car, i think the new wheels might be a bit fussy for the aggresive satin black look you have going on, just my opinion. Keep us updated with your progress mate.

    Still prefer the original lambos on your car mate, cant say as i like the colour of the wheels above either mate, i actually prefer the original colours of them. I look forward to seeing the final results, keep up the good work.

    If thats your exhaust centre section mate, it looks a tad small, whats the bore? 2.25? Id go for a full 3" setup or at least 2.75.

    thanks, i wanted to be different and lukily enough ive seen the list of cars going to ud and tehres only one other car running x5 wheels


    haha i actually recon i cd fit 11s on the rear, still gt bout an inch between the shock and tyre

    the frnts going to be tight but ill mke it wrk


    and yes i am running coilies (jom) their perfect in the frnt ,,,but the rear springs are way too soft they drop way too mucth when weights added so eibach said they wd mke me some custom rear springs but i need to find out the joms rear springs weights and information before they can and im finding it difficult

    thanks


    umm pretty easy tbh all went well

    heatgun stoped cracking

    used teh bottle jack and sum wood to get the first fakre, then simply batter it out bit by bit with a rubber mallet,,,if you only move accross inch my inch you wont get ribbles and ull get equal flare

    loving the arch rolling. we used to use a scaffold pole between tyre and arch and drive back and forth, then lower a bit more and do the same. i've made one using a vw jack and skateboard wheel too. did you get a good finish? Steve

    To be honest on a budget build I think you have done a cracking job, when I first saw the thread starting I thought it was going to end up a mess, but it does look really good, wheels are perfect for it.

    You taking it down any lower? Also some lamin-x on the headlights would look pretty good.

    i have laminex fr the rears to make em all red

    thanks, yes first few pics dont do any justice :/ hahha my faul went through stages of only being able to do lil bits as im in full time education

    umm cant adjust front coilovers any mor as it will hit tyre, but ive gt 15 mm lowering top mounts so tht will eliminate the arch gap in the frnt (future ill be looking into uprating the frnt springs and then lower it and flare frnts)

    the rear is going lower once i get shims on it , reason its high now is tht the rear springs give way too much so im thinking of getting some mk5 springs or bora springs fron hnr or eibach as they are way stiffer and wont drop as much


    the arse end needs to come down alot

    thanks for ure reply
