    Hello peeps my names Adam :) , ive been on here for a few week now and i got to say im very in impressed with the forum :) , I'm new to the Audi scene so i thought i'd say Hi and post some pictures of my car up:

    Spec:

    Its a 2.0 TDi S-line Quattro In Dolphin Grey, 78K, Full Service History, Full leather etcc :)
    Im very pleased with it so far, My old car was a Vauxhall Corsa C :L so it quiet a big jump for me lol I wasn't specifically looking for a Quattro but it sure is a big improvement since it seems to handle excellent

    Let me know what you think :)

    Going from a Corsa to that is a HUGE leap. You'll be delighted i'm certain.

    Indeed it is and I can't wait, especially seen as my wish bone and drive shaft snapped last week!!

    Welcome to the site mate, as Nath ask, what mods have you got planned for it?

    How much did it set you back? Looks great!

    I went from a 1.0L Corsa to a 2.0T A3, just a little step up :D

    10k Mate, Its got 68K (not 78K typing error :L) on the clock full servivce history and just had a cambelt at 62K :)

    Yea i was thinking some MY11 lights, Just duno whither to go for the tinted one or not "/ lol

    Yea when its clean its lushh :happy: , Ill be brave :L i was brave with my corsa and sprayed my rota grids orange :laugh: looked awsome, Im after something with a little dish , staggered offset maybe 8J front 9J rear, just duno 18's or 19's lol to many rims to choose from :icon_thumright: , I went for the cheap option on the Corsa and bought TA Techix , bad choice tbh very bad quality and had nothing but trouble include one of the front struts blowing the bottom off so the damper poked out the bottom and demolishing my CV boot :L

    I seen a spring blue on for sale just after i bought this, same spec, but it had been mapped so im guesing it had a bit of a hammering :lmfao:

    Obviously the corsa is built better, red looks well with grey, look @ Jules SB

    Nice car Adam. I went from a 90s Honda Ballade to my TDI. Had it for 3 years now and still love it.
    I went for HR -35mm springs and std dampers on mine. Made a big difference. much cheaper than coilovers too :)
