    Newbie from south wales

    Hello everyone!

    I have better introduce myself Hi im Rob, iv been a memeber for a few weeks but I just wanted to get to grips with ASN - so far its imense! everyone gives a wealth of knowledge to one-an-other.
    Iv got myself an 2004 Audi A3 Sportback 2.0tdi SE, and im VERY happy. I've done a few things to it so far, but I've also got a bunch of stuff ready to stick on it in the corner of the spare room! Where does one find the time?

    (Stock)When purchased:


    New wheels:


    Windows tinted:


    Cheers

    Bobby H

    Hi sarah! Thanks for the reply. Eibach Pro-lines early next year (I'll endure the snow first). Im searching for decent Break Discs but which dont break the bank! Im thinking Brembo Max (but I can only find them black for some reason?). Also looking for some S3 alaminuim stlye pedals? Atm, I've got waiting an RNS-E style aftermarket nav unit to fit in but I need to get the exact Part No's for the DD cage and buttons etc..?? so I can order them (cant wait!). Current mods ready to stick on - TDI Tunning box, wind deflectors, mud flaps, reversing camera (to connect to the nav unit!), rubber car mats for the winter, interior light LED upgrades.
    Oh the mods do definately not end lol

    lol, roll on next summer eh! Some good ideas there. But the more you do, the more you want to do! And the mods get bigger! Enjoy though, I love working on mine.

    sounds good mate, how old is she? good to see someone sticking to their car that they show so much passion about. I plan to have mine for just as long - probably longer!
    Oo how much is the gearbox mounting gonna set you back? Order a VagCom Diag tool from ebay £20 that'll sort your engine light.
    iv got a few things to do but still strugling to get advise as to what the part no's are :s

    i would love a new motor but cant aford a new one so gunna stick with this one for at least another year ive still got a year left on the finance so gunna pay that off first then decide what im going to do , no idea how much that mounting will cost hope not too much lol , ive got a code reader in work i use that to turn it off but it keeps coming back on so will have to get it fixed one day
    off the road boohoo anyone got a gearbox for me lol!!
