    Hi All,

    Almost a month now after buying my car, I have finally found some time to share some pictures of it. I have a stressful job and I get hardly anytime to myself, so my time is split between spending time with the future wife to be and (now) detailing my car - Audi A3 Sline 2.0TDi (170)

    As the previous statement gave away - I detailed the car myself. I used a DA polisher (full paint correction) and a whole load of other stuff overly expensive stuff, (the car's paintwork was appaling - dull, marred, and scratched to high heaven). I plan to post the before and after pictures, with the whole process I followed in the detailing section, but thought I would share some initial aftershots as I haven't posted pic's of the car before.

    I haven't 'modded' anything as of yet but am going to start with changing the grille to a black optics one and getting some S3 titanium black edition alloys - when I get the time. Minor additions to the car - Denison Gateway Ipod Kit and rear Steel mate parking sensors with display.

    Hope you enjoy, sorry for the lecture.

    niceeeeee, looks brand new so shiny, I've just bought a Phantom black car and it's going to be needing quite a lot of work on the paint to :)

    I'd personally replace those red lined floor mats with the normal mats, they look a little on the cheap side...

    Mats :D - tell me about it. They actually were a gift from someone. I've been meaning to get them changed. Any recommended retailers?

    Cheers.

    No plans as such mate. Going to start with changing the grille to a black optics one (I love the look) and also get some titanium S3 Black edition alloys on it. I just need to sort out some spare time!

    This is going to sound stupid but have you photoshopped the grill in the first picture? I know obviously the plate is blurred but some of the grill looks odd... other than that the car looks fantastic....

    Cheers for your comment about the car. Spot on about the grill - I used iPhoto on my mac to do a quick touch up of the number plate. As you've noticed, and quite rightly so, I haven't done a very good job of keeping my finger steady on the touch pad :sm4:
