    Well, because of point 9 alone, I would seriously consider selling it and buying an S3.

    Can you get Xenon foglights? is there any point?

    18 inch alloys are available at alloy wheel specialists. Check the gallery for examples.

    Don't bother with the neon underbody kit - that's best left to the Saxo boys.

    Try doing a search on this site any you will find most of the other things have been discussed before.

    1) Xenon Headlight - difficult on the pre facelift model
    2) Xenon Foglight - not worth it if you are having xenon mains
    3) 18" Alloys
    4) Blue Neon Underbody Kit - looks horrible in my opinion
    5) Speed Camera Detector - good idea, I'd go for the origin or the geodesy systems
    6) Front S3 Grill
    7) Digital Boost Reader
    8) Oil cooler Kit
    (9) Tubro Upgrade (including chip, NEW 'KKK' turbo, air intake pipe and full 'Turbo back' Milltek Stainless Steel Exhaust system)
    10)Suspension Upgrade
    11)Rear Parking Sensor with Switch
    12)Brakes Upgrade
    13)Incar DVD system

    Tell us more out your car, why not put the details in the 'your profile' section, depending on the value of it you are proably better just buying an S3 rather than try to turn an A3 into one!

    It means Mo was being ignorant I guess, we all have different tastes and need to accept others and appreciate there tastes.
    Why not have neons behind the intercooler?

    So what's wrong with Mo expressing his tastes (or lack thereof /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_2.gif)?
    MoreSauce also added the /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/vomit.gif smilie and nobody said anything /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif (Just bein' Bitchy, nothin personal /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif)

    Anyway, to the point (Did I say that /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/angel.gif)

    1) Xenon Headlight---Whoever you decide to go with, make sure you find out what's required to keep these Road-Legal. In Germany an auto-levelling sytem and headlight washers are required on Xenons, which really adds to the cost of retro-fitting.
    2) Xenon Foglight--I agree that there really isn't much point, instaed, I'd recommend getting Phillips Vision Plus or Diadem SilverStar bulbs for your existing fog's (If installed) Otherwise, try Hella
    3) 18" Alloys-- Unsure WHERE to find these, but IMO the 18's to go for are RSTT's /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    4) Blue Neon Underbody Kit--No clue Dude /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif(http://www.neonmotion.com/neonmotion/)
    5) Speed Camera Detector--No clue again as I've not much use for one (Gotta love the Autobahn /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif)
    6) Front S3 Grill--I don't think the S3 grill will fit on an A3 (Someone correct me if I'm wrong) But try Kamei
    7) Digital Boost Reader
    8) Oil cooler Kit--Oettinger has one for the A3, but IIRC it's around 500 Euros /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif If you're interested, I can get more info. (http://www.auto-amd.com/a3.asp)
    9) Tubro Upgrade (including chip, NEW 'KKK' turbo, air intake pipe and full 'Turbo back' Milltek Stainless Steel Exhaust system) (http://www.auto-amd.com/a3.asp)
    10)Suspension Upgrade- (http://www.auto-amd.com/a3.asp)
    11)Rear Parking Sensor with Switch
    12)Brakes Upgrade (http://www.auto-amd.com/a3.asp)

    Hope I could at least give you a couple ideas /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Also, on the suspension side of the house, I'd recommend also getting an S3 Upper Tie Bar. Installed one on my A3 TQ and it made quite an improvement /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'm not trying to be funny Ajay, but have you actually decided on what car you're getting, I've seen so many posts from you in the last couple of days (Since you became a member) and would like to know if you decided on anything, or is the advice given is just a waste?? (Sorry if that seems a bit harsh)

    Ok get the 1.8T because you like the car it is and then start getting into real thoughts about how to modify it, because we can go through many posts like this with you to find you go and buy a CTR.

    Anyway, my opinion on a couple of your queries;

    3) Wheels - As Drill said the RSTT's are the favourites at this moment /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif
    4) Underbody neon lights - /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/vomit.gif I'm not going to say anything else.
    5) Camera detector - A lot of the cheaper detectors are **** and will bleep at absolutely everything accept the camera until it's too late, you pays for what's you's gets.
    6) S3 grill - Not sure why you'd want one of them, the sports grills from Kamei, Oettinger, Projectzwo etc etc, look far more aggressive with the black mesh.
    7) Boost gauge - Do a search on boost gauge and you'll find a few threads talking about different gauges available, some which keep the car looking good with no addition of pods.
    9) Turbo upgrade - All of the major VAG tuners offer this at various levels, so check out the links section ( /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif @ Al B).
    10) Suspension - Check out www.eibach.com and www.hrsprings.com, as these are the most commonly used on Audi's I have found.
    11) Parking sensors - Learn to drive! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/fuck_you.gif
    12) Brake upgrade - It depends on how far you want to go and what the budget is, the best is a big brake conversion to something like the Brembo kit that AmD offer or even better the Porsche brakes which not only look fantastic but really work unlike the standard brakes. Other cheaper options are grooved/drilled discs with up-rated pads, check out www.ebcbrakes.com (Greenstuff pads and turbo discs) or a slightly cheaper option is ATE powerdiscs (www.contiteves-am.com) with some performance pads from ATE, Pagid, Ferrodo......

    But seriously go buy the car first. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif
