    Well I've been pestering various members of this forum with questions for the past few weeks, here is the result of everybodies advice - thanks guys.

    Bought on 3rd November, a manual 3.2 quattro, the previous owner had spent £1800 with Audi having the timing chain changed!

    The progress so far:
    - S line tailgate spoiler which will be painted and fitted along with some remedial bodywork.
    - 19" BBS CH ET45 replica wheels with Falken 452's in 225/35/19.
    - MY09 rear lights.
    - FK Highsport coilovers.
    - Oil & filter and Haldex service this Wednesday (12/12/12).

    Part way through a detail depending on weather:
    - Valetpro snowfoam.
    - TFR arches.
    - Tar removal with Auto Finesse Obliterate.
    - Fine clay from CYC.
    - Leather cleaned with Gliptone.

    I've not had a chance to hit it with the DA due to our lovely weather.

    My detailing OCD is itching - Menzerna/3M/Auto Finesse/Chemical Guys await!

    Some areas of corrosion to get sorted - top of front arches, leading edge of sills, around high level brake light.

    N8 had very kindly sourced a set of 19" Speedlines but due to ill health I was unable to complete the purchase, bugger! I will have a set.

    Not a ground breaking car but it'll do me for now - critique welcome guys.

    The wheels look lovely, was going for them myself but changed my mind at the last minute and brought new tyres for the standard wheels, big mistake!

    Nice car, looks clean!

    Ride height looks spot on as well.

    No noticeable rubbing, I removed the two T25 bolts from the rear bumper/rear arch as a precaution.

    Thanks for the compliments guys.

    I'm looking for a set of the single piece Mk2 TT 18x9 Speedlines now :drool:

    Looking good, wheels do suit :cool:

    Any other visual mods planned? I intend to put the facelift S Line front end on mine.

    Very nice Dan. Sits well on the coils and you can't fail with CH's. I really like the 1/2 Grey interior too, had that in my TT and it was a good change from all black!
