    I've become an Audi owner :cool:

    Picked up a 57 plate TDI 170 S Line Sportback in Lava Grey with just 24K on the clock :rockwoot:

    Here's some very quick pics from this morning; sadly its raining here in South Wales so any hopes of giving it a wash are slim

    Coming from a MK4 Golf (project thread here for those interested rhyso - dirty diesel power!) I'm no stranger to modding :thumbsup:

    I've spent the last few weeks searching through the forum looking at various mods etc and have already fitted some S Line valve caps and a tax disc holder.

    Immediate plans are to de-badge the rear, fit some MY09 / 11 rear lights, S3 pedals and retro-fit the puddle lights pack. Also when I get my V5 I'll be getting some pressed plates to go with my new plate holders

    Hope you like and I look forward to meeting some new people :cool:

    Cheers

    Cheers :thumbsup:

    Only had it 24 hours but I love it :yes:

    Drive home from Birmingham yesterday was great! I think the engine needs a bit of Italian tuning as I struggled to get 45mpg :unsure:. VCDS shows no codes so I think I'll be doing some logging in the meantime but in all honesty I don't care at this point lol

    Thank you :) Not sure If I'll be changing this one as much as the Golf; though I do recall saying roughly the same thing when I bought the Golf lol

    Though the idea of buying the S Line is that most of what I want on a car is already fitted so that's hopefully saved me some money........problem is forums like these are never good for the wallet :haha:

    Very nice and great mileage.. Welcome to ASN.

    P.S There is no need to travel all the way to Newport for paint correction or detail work. Myself and S4twiggy are based in Merthy Tydfil.

    Cool. I'll keep you mind :icon_thumright:

    Managed to wash it earlier and the paintwork looks in good condition - thankfully it doesn't look like its been dragged through a hedge backwards!

    Managed to de-badge the rear too so it looks a little cleaner

    Just been out for a blast across the mountains - well impressed with how planted it feels despite the poor weather conditions :racer:

    Why De-badge... makes it look like a poverty spec version? Stick the badges back on quick before the glue dries....

    Cheers :)

    Prefer a smoother, cleaner look at the rear. Plus it keeps people guessing as to what's left them standing :cool:
