    Hello, My name is jay and i recently turned 18 in October , I then decided to buy a Audi A4 1.9tdi 130 After owning 5 cars and a van since i passed my test when i was 17, I was searching the net for about a week before i found this A4 local. When i bought the car it had 119k miles, dent in the passenger side wing and a dent in the passenger side door just below the handle, The car came with this horrible blue stained interior but on the plus side it came with rs6 alloys :) I paid £2300 for the car. Enjoy this ongoing project.

    Picture's of the day i bought it.

    Then the oil pump decided to go which i wasn't aware of until the bottom end started to knock! So i managed to pick up
    a 1.9tdi 130 engine with all the auxiliaries with only 102k less than my previous engine for £250, fitted it on the Saturday i had off, All went to plan and i cleaned the engine bay up fitting my de-cat and blanked the EGR off while the engine was out.

    Engine out!

    New engine in! :)

    All new fluids and it fired straight up. Since that was done i decided to rip all the blue interior out and bin it. Got a full black interior of the same bloke i got the engine off for £140 for everything.

    Interior out!

    The interior is all in but i still need to get a picture.

    Nice project! And an engine swap already, impressive. You've had more cars in your first year then I've had in 10 :)

    Looking forward to more pics mate.

    Car is looking great. Any more plans?

    My 1st proper car was a '71 Mg Midget in a lot worse condition than your audi.

    How do you manage insurance? (my lad is 17, gawd that makes me old!)

    Looks nice! Do the fronts not rub at all? Mine isn't as low and has rubbed once when reversing up a kerb. I like the unpainted lowers on yours. They look poo as standard, but on a slammed car I think they often make it look better!

    Loving what you've done so far.

    I'm 19 and looking into changing my 2010 leon 1.2tsi mapped to 130 for a 1.9tdi a4, possibly an estate one.

    Nice to know I'm not the only young lad looking at A4s!

    I'm 29 and I felt like an old man for buying an Audi A4 TDI! It's good to see a couple of young lads with them makes me feel like it's not such an old man car after all!

    Car is looking very well jay.

    my car came that horrible blue interior too...I've the most of it ripped out at this stage too.

    I replaced my steering wheel with a black one but still have the blue plastic panels 'behind' the wheel.

    just wondering did you manage to get them changed?

    I'm thinking of spraying mine black now :-D

    Little teaser, Instead of paying stupid amounts for a turbo kit, i thought i will try one myself. Getting and making bits up atm but should be on in a couple of weeks. Turbo, turbo flange and exhaust flange ready to make the downpipe. Oil lines getting made up soon and adapter plate getting made today hopefully. Boost gauge purchased, already have spare exhaust and inlet manifolds to
    modify. Will keep yous posted :)

    Tiny standard turbo, and big new turbo :p

    What is the turbo off, one thing to note with turbo's, size is not everything ! For example a gt2559v is a lot bigger in size than a gtb2260vk however the later flows twice as much air ! What it matters is the trim and size on compressor wheel and turbine NOT the ar ratio ! If i am not mistaken that looks like a GT17 as fitted to some beemers or it could be a gt18 as fitted to some vauxhals/saab's...

    Looks nice, definately be following this thread.. Can I ask how much you have lowered it as I was looking at the jom coilovers but says it's up to a 60mm drop, in my mind I can't see that being very low
