    Picked up an '03 Atlas grey 1.8T Sport yesterday. 79k, FSH mainly Audi, very well looked after. Exceptional paint all round. Spent a large part of the day detailing it, only for it to downpour, oh, well I had just got round to getting a coat of wax on so all was not lost. Last car was a 1.8 Turbo Sport Passat that was remapped, adjustable coilovers, stainless exhaust, lots of work carried out. I imagine this will go the same way.............Those rear lights have gotta go ! not to my liking at all.

    I would say the wheel's are 18" due to the profile of the tyre's.

    Wheels are 18'' , they will go I think. I really find those rear lights an eyesore! But hey only had it two days! What et should this be running? I have come from the Passat world and it ran with et43 as standard just wondering if this is the same? It will be getting an oil change in the next couple of weeks and then every six months, something I swear to. The Passat was treated the same and had 142,000 miles on it and still sounds very sweet indeed. Not into the idea of longlife servicing personally. How much lower than standard is the sport?

    Yeah defo scrap the Longlife, Ive been a victim of that ***** aswell!
    The Sport is 20mm lower than standard, Just right IMO sitting on 19's. Ive ran ET45, 42 right down to ET30 on my old B6's and the ET30 looked spot on, no need for a spacer. Didnt have any issues with rubbing etc but then again when I did have the ET30's on, I didnt try with back seat passengers!

    I wouldnt be so worried about the rears, its the fronts that cause issues on turning etc. More than happy to space rears out and keep fronts tucked in. Not sure which way the mods are going to go on this one, got a hankering for a dark graphite grey theme to run against the atlas grey esp crinkle finish paint on the wheels whatever ones I end getting.

    Oh yeah!!! Loving that, bet that looks awesome in the sun rolling along, blue is great on a bright days as it just seems to absorb the skys colour and bring it right out. Nice job there bud.
