    Hi all.First time Audi owner.

    Hi guys an girls

    Im Dave from Warrington, Just bought a v reg A3 1.6. Very happy with it.I did want a 1.8t but insurance was more than i wanted to pay.

    Hope to be able to get advice etc on here as ive been a vauxhall driver before now.I havnt really done much to my little a3 except for some matt black alloys and hid headlights.Will be after some parts to make it look nice an subtly sporty.

    Hope to see you guys at meets etc.


    Thanks

    Hiya Dave and welcome to the forum. There are a few meets at the Trafford Centre, always worth a visit. Sadly I never made any before we emigrated but the guys are good to know. The alloys sound good any pics of the car?? And what plans do you have for the car? You will get loads of ideas on here lol so be prepared to spend! Enjoy the car.

    Cheers for the warm welcomes guys.

    Id put some pics up but i really feel its in a state of limbo right now so its not looking great.And needs a really good clean.Some plans are to change the seats as the ones in are beige an realy badly marked.I would like to put s3 bumpers on but i know the wings were diffrent on a s3 so not to sure how it would look on a standard a3.I will though be wanting a s3 spoiler on there.I dont want to make it look something it isnt as i have done that in my early neon light,black angel eye and shopping list on the door days.I feel ashamed admiting that.lol.I think il be having a look on here for various inspiration as i just cant leave a car alone - i have to add bits and bobs.

    They 16's? Those alloys look cool with the silver trim around them mate! maybe look into some lowering springs

    no Jay theres 17in. But i think the profile is wrong - They came of a golf an the guy was running them on 245/40/17 while i think they should be 225/40/17.

    When i got the original wheels off i noticed it has already been lowerd but i cannot be sure on the amount of drop an the springs looks a bit past it. Id hope to get coilovers but i know they can be pricey.

    Sorry about the mix up, 245 is the width, your profile should be more like 45? im currently running 225/40/R18... if you decide to let those wheels go let me know

    i got suggested this site when i first joined : DPM - Audi A3 8L Performance, Tuning & Suspension products check it out!
    Good luck mate
