    Hello everyone, am New to this club, picking my new car up tomorrow 57 Audi A3 2.0tdi (140) S-line in red, and i am so excited,lol
    was kinda twisted arm into getting a new car after my astra sri 150 swirl flaps have gone so would rather change than fix as its pricy.
    wasn't really looking for anything in particular and came across the car i am buying and fell in love, lol

    any ways hello!! anyone from south wales on here??

    yes i sure have, picked her up earlier but was to dark to take pics, needs to go back for a day tho as i spotted that there was marks on the rear plasti between the door and windows and they weren't there the other day when i viewed it, also my parking sensors dont work!! surely they should check these things work, but other than that i am happy drives lovely and feels great on the road, need to find some time to give it a good detail tho will have to wait till i come back of hols tho.

    they will be put right, spotted it when i went to pick it up so spoke to them them. parking sensors might be a fuse so might have a look myself.

    thanks for the warm welcome guys

    Looks nice mate, them wheels really suit the a3. Be prepared to loosen the purse strings after you've had a browse around this forum, some of the cars on here just get you wanting more and more.

    i am not gonna do much to it as its stretch me buying her,lol. looking at tinting the rear windows for the baby, so she doesnt get blinded. maybe debadge the rear simply to make easier to polish, new headlight bulbs and side lights as they are like candles in the wind,lol.
    and a good bloody clean as it has done 66k on motorway, i love the wheels and didnt realize they a split rims when i bought it, another little surprise. and maybe do a little carbon wrapping we will see!

    its all about the little touches man , but if your upgrading the headlights do not put aftermarket hid's in because of 2 reasons , 1 they are now illegal and will fail the mot and 2 they blow your wiper motor I've had this and its a costly fix , about £300 at least
