    Well got the new car yesterday, so just a thread to say thanks for all the help over the years. Has finally sunk in that the A3 wont be coming back. Just felt like i was waiting for it to be repaired lol. Made some really good friends from the 8P section :thumbsup: Still in the audi gang so dont worry too much :laugh: Just going over to the B7 section. Got myself a sprint blue audi a4 dtm :happy: good spec and in great condition. Really pleased with it.

    Nice. Im sure i seen this one for sale somewhere before.

    Did the person you bought have in his advert that he wanted a swap for a BMW 3 series or something along those lines?

    When i was selling my BMW a guy with a car exactly the same as this wanted to swap me. :ninja:

    Correct

    Thanks mate. Nope, he was only selling as had a new job and didnt want to put miles on the dtm and was in the middle of buying a house. He bought an A6 TDI :)

    Haha it is. I'll update it once i get the dtm to a nice standard :p
    Thanks Rom, well i've had 2 A3s already and had a corsa as my first car. So thought i'd try a saloon just fancied something a little bigger than the A3. I dont really need the size i have no kids or anything etc haha

    :lmfao::nyah:

    I was waiting for some one to mention that. Dads house, if that was my house i'd have either of my dream cars parked outside b7 rs4 or c6 rs6 :wub: :wub:


    Thanks Kel and i will:) :thumbsup:


    Thanks mate, i do have a huge soft spot for sprint blue not going to lie. One of my favourite audi colours of all time :wub:
    Haha and thanks :thumbsup: I'll still be popping in the 8P section lol still love the 8P shape :wub:

    Thanks Robbie, totally agree the badges on the back look confused and not sure where to do. Debadge is in order, going to do it today :happy:

    Ah ok, stunning car mind!

    Any plans for it? With the bad luck that you had with your other car i think you should keep this one locked away as much as possible!

    Haha the last owner Jon, Naughty naughty :laugh:
    I've always had a soft spot for b7s. Always wanted one before i got my licence. What model and engine you thinking?

    Thanks Johnny :thumbsup: Always liked sprint blue :wub:

    Thanks mate :thumbsup: Yeah got a list not as long as the A3 list though :laugh: RS6 grille, tints, black/dark grey details wing mirros etc, my private plate, custom us spec shorter recess boot lid, coilovers, wheels, stage 3 ko4 etc. Coilovers and wheels are kind of last thing though. Got a quote today for a custom exhaust, may book that in soon but not sure if to spend the money getting a few things done instead of just one thing. And fitting my fbmfsw at some stage :happy:

    Well I was kind of thinking of an S4 4.2 my budget is kind of tight I could probably stretch to £11k or maybe a bit more for the right one. Its a really good looking car and the noise is fantastic.

    Just need something bigger with 3 kids now but something that is still going to give me a few kicks!
