A3 2.0T Quattro ...

    Hi all,

    Has anyone got any videos of the 2.0T in A3 form, such as videos of the tacho display and video clips of the exhaust note etc etc, you understand what I mean.

    The GTI has a nice note, but I'm wondering how this compares to the GTI. I'm up for swapping in July/August depending when the facelift comes out and whether it gets the new rear lights which are IMO not so good on a 3 Door from artist impressions.

    Options are -->

    - A3 2.0T Quattro
    - A3 3.2 Quattro
    - GTI as a last option

    I'd like the 3.2 but if all goes sour the 2.0T will suffice... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif as it's gonna be quicker than my 156 BHP 2.0 TDI A3.


    Over the week-end I did some handy work on my a3, see below but please post some videos of the 2.0T.

    Another snall point i'd like to make is that the calipers on the front are huge and the pictures don't show that really. 3.2 ones must be massive

    Brakes 1 - Orginal Front Caliper Face View Cleaned Up
    Brakes 2 - Orginal Front Caliper Front View Cleaned Up
    Brakes 3 - Red Front on 2nd Coat of 3
    Brakes 4 - Red Front near side
    Brakes 5 - Red Face View
    Brakes 6 - Car on Axel Stands nice and shiny
    Brakes 7 - Front Drying
    3/4 View of my baby with a fffff fireblade in the way
    Front Red with audi rings
    Face view in red with logo
    Back box 1 of 2
    Car in snow

    Took quite a while cleaning the brakes up but was well worth it in the end, whist also giving the alloys a wonder wheels work over with super resin auto glym polish followd by the Extra Gloss Protection and they came out like new.

    Got loads of images if you want more I have em, it took longer than expected to do the job and quite a few people at work today commented so they do get noticed.
