    Hello, I'm new...

    Hello *waves*

    I've just signed up on here after realising that there's a shed load of good advice on here.

    Currently I'm running a 2000 A3 1.8T Sport which I'm planning a few things for. The cars standard but was specced well by the previous owner (im the 2nd owner) from new. Had it for coming up to 2 years now and its not missed a beat and only has 65K miles on it so I'm happy.

    Hoping I can offer a bit of advice on various things back in return for all the questions I'll be asking

    Apart from my A3 I'm into snowboarding, surfing and mountain biking. Bit of a photography geek too, 27, live just south of Birmingham.

    Workwise I'm so go easy on me (ducks to avoid incoming rotting veg)

    Cheers

    Tom

    Its just a stock A3 1.8T in silver on an X plate at the moment. Nothing noteworthy about it yet apart from the fact its normally very shiney :D

    I'll stick some pics up once the shiney nice bits go on in a couple of weeks
