    Newbie

    Hi there,

    I'm 23 been driving for 4 years an this is my first Audi. It's my first non Nissan car aswell, owned a 1.4 Sunny, 2 litre almera gti and just sold my 300bhp pulsar gti-r. Needed something less heavy on juice and insurance and something much more reliable so an Audi A3 1.8 Sport was a good choice.

    Had it for nearly a week now and it drives beautiful. It's a 99 S Reg, It's totally standard in green. 15" alloys factory sub in the boot on the rear arch. Only thing I'm missing is a cd changer as I have a tape player upront. Anyone know where I can get one and what cd changers will work with the standard unit? How do I get the head unit out?

    Planning on 18" RS6 alloys, coilovers, some angel eye headlights/HID lights(not seen where I can get HID lights from though) and some smart rear led lights (not lexarse ones).

    Anyway I'll catch you around no doubt.

    Heres a pic of my Pulsar


    And My New Audi

    Nice looking car mate, bet your sorry to see the Pulsar go. The finish isn't great on them but who cars when you get that performance. A mate of mine has one...well had one until it came to an abrupt stop (against a wall) 3 weeks ago. He was very upset at losing it. Still he is looking for a Skyline now, lots of them about over here.

    yeah gutted to see the pulsar go as I did everything to it and spent about 12k on it. Paintwork wasnt bad for a 15 year old car just a tiny bit of rust which i never got round to sorting. Pushed it would do 0-60 in under 4 seconds with a good launch.

    I'm looking at gettin 18" replicas I think as I believe the real ones are 19".
