    Hello! New Audi A3 owner.

    I am now the owner of my first A3 which I purchased in mid December, and I've found the forum very helpful in resolving a few minor issues so far with the car and I can tell many of the members on here are very knowledgeable.

    My car is a 2009 Audi A3 1.9 TDIe Sport Sportback. My first car was an older 1.6 Golf so the A3 is a bit of an upgrade. Main reason for the TDIe was purely running costs, cheap tax, fuel, insurance, parking at work etc.
    80000 miles which I was cautious is high but also aware that if looked after will go on for many more. Full Audi service history and I plan to treat it best I can.

    The car is completely standard at the moment as i'm only 20, any performance upgrades would increase my insurance drastically. I hope to look more into that side in the future. In the mean time I think i'll look towards some interior upgrades.

    Just a quick iPhone picture below. Looking a bit dirty after the snowy period.
    I'm sure that I am allot like many forum members with a a bit of OCD about keeping it clean. Also been trying to learn about the detailing side of things to look after the paintwork as well.



    I'm not a mechanic guru, but definitely a car lover and very willing to learn.
    Thanks for reading

    Hello! New Audi A3 owner.

    Try searching for carbon wrapping for the interior. 3m di noc. It's really easy and gives a new fresh look to the interior. I often get comments on mine

    Thanks for the pointer Gazzago, I will have a look into it. Do you have any pictures of yours?

    Hello! New Audi A3 owner.

    Here's one of the drivers door trim. I used silver carbon fibre, most use normal dark. Mine was originally piano black and a bit scratched!

    I did the centre around the gear stick too, will have to take a pic of that

    Have a search in here you should fine plenty more pictures to inspire you.

    Thanks for those, definitely makes sense for the drivers door trim. Mine has a few scratches from which I presume are from the seatbelt being taken off and knocking into the door.
