    Only had this car a week and I must say I'm loving my first Audi. As I work in a paint shop I'm lucky enough to tinker at weekends down the workshop. Ran the mop over her today than a few coats of wax, de badged the rear and painted the chrome grill black. Still got some bits on the car I'm going to respray, bonnet wings and 1 rear quarter. The colour is actually dark blue but looks black in this pic...

    Cheers fallmonk, there is a few in this tbh, and being a painter it just make things worse as you notice everything haha, I will prob work my way round the whole car after time, the 18's have slowed her down a little, but its all about the look! :)

    I think that will be the same colour as mine, When polished and in good light it's a lovely colour.

    Looks great but I think in good time a set of sensible lowering springs will set it off !

    I used to have a 3.0 Quattro sport in the same colour.

    i had my lowers painted body coloured, you should do this as you work in a body shop. Makes a big difference to the look of the car.

    Nah I couldnt cope having a car on it's arse,I do like comfort myself ! I have the factory standard suspension on mine but being the tdi sport it's slightly lower than yours. It's comfortable and smooth. The only aftermarket kit I would entertain fitting would be the Eibach kit which is 30mm lower than standard, 10 mm lower than mine.

    I fitted this kit on my old focus, Fords sell them. Had good ride quality to be honest and there wasnt a huge difference just the ride height was perfect

    Yep defo a sport bud, the tyres are 45 profile, so maybe its that and the case of the lowers not being painted that makes it look a little higher??

    the tyres are 45 profile on 18inch wheels ? need to be 40 on 18s for these, thats definatly why then ! and would also explain why it feels a little slower on acceleration.

    235/40/18 you want

    Haha yeah we went through this in another thread a while back, these tyres were on the rims when I bought them, 2x Pirelli and 2 Bridgestone, when it comes to changing them I'll drop the size down to 235 40 ;)
