    Newbie from Braintree, Essex

    Hey all,

    Have been a long time reader on here, but never signed up (didn't own an Audi, so no point)

    Anyways, last night I took the plunge and purchased an A3 1.8t sport, T registration with 136k on the clock. Full service history (up to 78k Audi, onwards private Audi specialist) full mint condition black leather interior, arm rest, just had 2 new tyres on the rear and cambelt replaced about 7 months ago.

    I got it cheap as it needs a few bits doing to it, new headlight, few scuffs here and there, new windscreen.

    Ive already ordered a new stereo for it as the original Audi one has seen better days and the volume button is silly sensitive.

    Have a few plans for it, but for now, i plan to get used to it and enjoy it

    Thanks
    ben

    Ahh, how comes your on here? Not too bad chap, how's you? Yeah mate, he's had it started and running, just stripping it down at the moment to paint engine bits and tidy the bay up a bit....it's a complete mess mate. Hes having a bay loom off me as the one that's in there has shorted and burnt wires all over the place, so we're fitting this one to be on the safe side

    Hey, nice to see someone local.

    Is there ever any regular or occasional local meets? Sorry if there is a section, haven't had the chance to search the site fully.

    Have already been doing a few searches and got some good answers
