    Newbie from Bristol

    Hello folks,

    My names Andy and I live in Bristol,been around the Renault tuning scene for many years and owned a few modified Clios, have sold up and I'm now looking at getting an A4 1.9 Tdi estate this weekend as my girlfriend & I do a lot of mountain biking and the Clio just wasnt cutting it with space. Been browsing the forums for a bit and there are some really nice cars on here.

    So 'hopefully' I shall be the owner of my first Audi by Saturday,please be kind and expect dumbass newbie questions.

    Cheers

    Andy

    Thank you Sandra , will do. Bit daunting collecting a new type of car as unlike the Renaults I dont really know what to look for/check when buying,a friend of mine has given me a list of things so I'm hoping a bit of common sense like no smoke or rattles,service history etc will save me buying a crook car.

    The A4 is a great place for knowledge there are faqs threads, so have a read on them when you get a chance. If you have any questions, just post up. You will enjoy the audi. x

    Ok,1 week after joining the forums Ive finally got some pictures of said car for you all.

    As you can see its in ok condition but a few bits need seeing to,bits missing etc. Theres some damage to the front bumper and the roof has a couple of dents where I presume a bike rack was,these will hopefully get sorted soon. Plus ive fitted 1 piece of my first upgrade

    Is it best to update things in a project thread rather than on here?<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

    Welcome to the forum Andy

    Nice looking motor. I'm sure once you get some time, you will sort it all out and bring it back to its former factory joy
    Enjoy the forum, great bunch of guys here and always willing to help.
