    Hello guys

    Hi guys

    I've owned an audi now for about a yr, only recently crossed my mind to work on it...
    Not longed joined ASN but I am very impressed from what i have seen and how hopeful everyone is!

    I have a 1998 audi A3 1.8T 8L
    Not done to much to it yet

    So far i have only lowered the car slightly, 18" alloys, a forge recirc DV and pipercross induction.

    Here are a few pics hope you like them













    My friend also took a little clip on youtube if you like to see it run

    Look forward to gaining knowledge with you all

    Cheers Jay

    Thanks guys,
    Springs have been on hold atm looking to get rid of my wheels change to 17's first before lowering the ride now
    Clutch also decided to go on me, initially thought it was the slave cyclinder as the clutch was very soft
    Took out the slave, seemed fine, put it back in and as the clutch released i heard a loud grinding sound, The clutch grinded on the gearbox All changed now!
    Got some new tyres, but found out i also have a split on the wish bone bush.... What next!?
    Only progress is i have installed a leather armrest to the central panel...
