    Noodle's A3 2.0 T Sportback

    So after a lot of searching I finally found a clean, low mileage Sportback for decent money shortly before Christmas.

    I'm from Belfast so traveled over to Birmingham to see the car do the deal if it was mint.
    Thankfully the fella selling it had been completely honest with me and the car was immaculate with full service history and all the receipts :D

    Drove it from Birmingham to Cairnryan (managed an unbelievable 38mpg!) and got the boat home.

    Since then I've just been enjoying driving it and getting used to the normal 25 - 30 mpg i can get from it lol.

    And more recently I have started to modify it a bit

    Anyway here's a few pics to keep you entertained







    And because I can't leave anything alone I fitted a new PCV valve and revision D diverter valve and a big silly Neuspeed P-Flo Intake :D



    I also have a TTS engine cover to go on too so the messy engine is all hidden

    More pics when it's actually clean. Hope you all like it. I love it!

    Cheers,

    Aaron (Noodle)

    Thanks mate. Few more plans for it happening soon. Main thing it needs is a proper clean :P

    The Diverter valve is prone to failure on these TFSI engines and mine was knackered so I fitted the newer Revision D Diverter Valve. Got it from TPS.

    I am considering getting a new intake and looking at the p-flo, is it very noisy? do you notice it on part throttle and does it sounds good?!!

    Hey Chris. Only seeing your question now....yes the P-Flo is loud....not really loud on part throttle but it does have that blow off noise every time you change gear. Having said that though I think it sounds great!

    Coilovers mate. BC Racing coilovers to be exact....handles so well and with the camber set up it turns in grips like a track car! :D

    Also quite comfy too with dampening set a bit softer
