    I bought my first Audi in Febuary this year
    its a A4 TDI 130 Sport 2003 model
    it had 82000 miles with full service history and was tidy but a bit bland

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    first thing was a double din conversion to get ride of the faulty stereo

    [​IMG]

    then I managed to buy a s line front for it

    [​IMG]

    and I also bought a mesh style grill to compliment the ones in the front bumper

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    and also made a mesh lower grill

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    and a pic of the reason why I bought it

    [​IMG]

    I then bought some 3sdm reps 8.5x19s and 9.5x19s

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I them managed to find a rear valance

    [​IMG]

    had my door blades colour coded and a lcr splitter

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    then my skirts colour coded

    [​IMG]

    hope you like how its coming on so far

    Looking good!! All you need to do now is add S4 or S/line door blades, black roof rails to match the grill and window surrounds and your there!

    Very nice as is also.

    Looks very good, those specific wheels don't work for me, but they certainly sit nicely!

    Keeping my door blades as I don't like the s line ones
    not loosing the rear wiper as I use it and would *annoy* me if it wasn't there
    And I've never been a fan of tints
    i just want to drop the front a touch on b5 perches and I'll be happy

    Heard on the news they're going to scrap tax discs on cars, funny because I didn't have one in the windscreen for years because it wouldn't stick then spent a bit for a decent one and now it may be going in the bin again haha.

    I think it was an option for all models, not sure if it came standard on certain models.

    i've just fitted mine and had it enabled and works fine. :D

    Nice I've been looking at doing the same grille mods on mine, as the half honeycomb half normal doesn't do it for me. Did you take any pics of how you secured the lower piece?

    I've been looking into it to fit them with the coils to keep some of the shocks stroke length, and you seem to get about 12mm drop from them.

    I was approaching a t junction, he was coming along the road from my right
    he went to turn into the road I was on and missed the corner completely
    going right across in front of me causing my passenger front corner to impact his passenger front corner
    he had nearly run someone over 20 minutes earlier and was being followed by those people who were on the phone to the police
    so when he hit me the police were on the scene within 2 minutes. he was that drunk he couldn't even get out the car or stand up on his own
    ive been told by the police it wasn't his car either but a relatives
    and ive been told by my insurance that my car is a write off :(

    Not good at all, I hope it doesn't have to come from your insurance if it's not his car?

    If you fancy selling the LCR splitter, and lower honeycomb grill before it gets taken away let me know.

    You savage! Hahaha!

    Gutted for you mate, it really doesn't take a lot to write these cars off these days, they're getting old. My Mrs rear ended somebody a few years back and insurance wanted to write it off, but I managed to wangle them to let me keep it.

    Hope you get it sorted and that you stay with audi, particularly the b6. ;)

    Has there been anything said about what will happen with it not being his car?

    Well I hope they throw the book at the guy who hit you, it could have easily been a child 20 meters up the road if he hadn't hit your car the state he was in.

    You can always tell the insurance company to go whistle and repair the car yourself then go to small claims to recover the amount through either the driver or the the cars insurance company/motor insurance bureau. That way your car is not recorded as written off.

    Just because the insurance say they would write it off, for what is really minor damage, doesn't mean you have to go along with them.


    The fact that he is being done for DD would help a County Court case.

    Insurance would love to tell you the car's worth nothing and to take there 20p offer on the car... if it's only cosmetic and still drives straight let it go to someone who will give it a good home and pm me :rolleyes:

    Drunk drivers... appalling.

    Have you asked what the insurance have valued the car at? It may be worth buying it back from them?

    I did this for a friend who had his focus estate written off - he paid £450 to buy it back - spent £400 on parts and paint - it took us one evening to swap over the front bumper, bonnet, radiator pack.etc - his total insurance payout was £2200 - so he was left with £1350 and his own car.

    Looking at the pictures it looks like it only needs a front bumper, wing, bonnet and headlight cosmetically - there may be some mechanical damage by looking at how far the headlight has been pushed but may be worthwhile having a crack if the buy-back price is decent.
