    Well I just brought my very first car, been driving over 4 years, borrowing parents cars etc
    Its been so nice to be able to get a nice car of my own, well just a car! Always been a fan of the A3 - so to be able to own one as well is unbelievable :w00t:

    Its a 53 plate, 40k miles, couple of stone chips at the front but I'll touch them up asap, but otherwise in really good nick.

    Not the best of photos, camera phone.

    I could probably think of 1000 thing I could do, but right now - I'm just going to enjoy it for what it is. The leather I didn't have much choice on as it was second hand, but its grown on me since buying it.

    Thanks - I'm sure the mod bug will hit me very soon :p

    It's been raining last couple of days so not had a chance to give it a good clean / polish - waiting on a nice day :D

    Nice ! a bit like mine :respekt:

    I had loads of chips on my bonnet, i managed to find a bonnet the same colour from ebay and just wacked it straight on. All you need to do now is start modding it!:yes:
