    Got my family wagon 2 months ago - low mileage and mint interior but previous owner parked by touch despite the parking sensors!!!


    Job list - Front bumper, front wings and rear bumper all needed paint. Leaking boot struts. Both wing caps were cracked along with the mirrors. Swirls marks, small dents and scratches everywhere!!! Rear upper brake light - cracked and 1/2 bulbs not working. Rear light cluster damaged. One of the number plate lights not working and had rounded off screw.

    I haggled £1k off the price factoring in the work I've just done. I had already taken the 17" sport wheels off - B8 S-line 18" on, changed all the bulbs (T8ups) and put freshly painted wing mirror caps on before taking the first pics so here it is......

    Before......

    Been to the bodyshop and had Sport front bumper/valance/grilles, both front wings, S-line door blades, side sills, rear bumper and valance and Ebay sourced rear upper S-line spoiler - painted and fitted. Full machine polish of car. New boot struts fitted. Metal pressed plates fitted. B7 flat wipers and arms fitted (after the pics were taken!). Used but re-lacquered upper brake light fitted. Just got mudflaps to go on when they arrive and upgrade to 312 brakes. Here's the pics......

    Still not sure about the wheels. I've got a set of 3 A6 wheels in the garage and need 1 more to complete the set then I may switch over. These are quite lightweight though

    That looks very nice indeed! I personally love the wheels, i've never seen them on a b6 before.

    That rear spoiler looks ace, it makes the back end look well nice! I think i need to get on eBay.

    Yes - I got it from this seller on ebay as used for £30 but when it arrived it was brand new - Audi TT Leather Perforated Gear Shift Knob 6 OEM | eBay

    I need to fit the gaiter properly yet though as the alcantara is quite thin compared to leather

    The A6 wheels are the ones that I had on my A3 (avatar pic) - easy to keep clean and they look like 19" due to spokes going right to the rim but they are heavy

    That looks spot on. Cost a few quid for all the paintwork sorting?

    I think the wheels look great, maybe look better if the car was lower by a few mm? I don't know. You've done a lovely job on it though, well done!

    Welcome dude, depends on your budget really if you can afford new then that's good a nice, I gather it's nice to have genuine parts for the front and rear bumpers at least for a good fit, so perhaps breaker yard and eBay is the place to look?
