got some pics up in the end and in going to put mesh ovr intercooler and remove the red tape from pipes will upload pics as bits change it will be very slow thou as cash is tight going to spray wheels black put black grill mesh on front and tint the windows and change the red audi sign to white maybe not sure yet
I like it mate. Personally though I'd go for a black audi badge and a black hose to the front mount intercooler but it's nice to see something different.
The red bits and the silver mesh are pretty gash.
Jesus Mint dont hold back lol
It might just be the photos but the front tyres look noticeably smaller than the rears in profile and width?
This is going to be one of 'those' threads.
Its not bad considering he's just bought it! i would loose the red badge and the tape on the hoses then get the fog light covers for the bumper just to tidy it up a bit!
You mite wanna take the bumper off and see if u can fit it a little better although it might be a bit flimsy where the patio doors have been cut out!!!!
But seriously with a lil tidying I'm sure u will have something a bit different that can turn heads and secretly I think thats wot we all want
Seconded and as been said its newly bought so scope for other mods
was thinking doing badge black but was going to spray the grill black so you woulent see the badge then thats why i thought white also the little audi signs on the wheel center caps are white not sure wot to do yet thanks for the pointers tho all pointers welcome
guessing gash means **** i thought the same so was gona get the tape of the pipes and spray the mesh black
back tyres are 225/45/17 and front 205/40/17 well spotted
I like the white wheels but I think the centre caps need to match.
iv had the bumper off and carnt get it any better few things out of line like bonnet wings and was missing the inner plastic arches but got one for the n/s and its got some damage to n/s indicator and bumper still need sanding and spraying
na dont think i like the white wheels did when i brought it but gone off them a bit now i think black would be better few people tell me to do them red lol year right
and as you all know im new to audi and was wondering with this being the a3 1.8 20v turbo agu engine what speed should it do in 2nd 3rd 4th and 5th giving it some welly well up to 5.5 6 rpm just a rough guide
I would put a standard grill back in or get some of this : Race Mesh Black 125x25cm Honey Comb | eBay UK
fogs fitted or some nice ducts....
*grabs a chair*
red tape now gone looks a lot better
Sounds like it could be a bit of project coming on here !!!! I like
and a pic of the engine
Looks better already keep going dude
I've been at it for 4 years
thanks for the link that mesh looks good and never thought of fitting fogs surpose i could is there ny links for fogs or ducts that would fit this bumper that you know off
4 years thats all lol hopfully i will get it all done within the next few months grill mesh next i think
Where abouts in west Wales are you mate?
And I'd go with the honeycomb grill as well..
i like audis so i like it, oooo circles should be black tho.
Bit far from me then, that's a shame. Not sure if I like the hole in the bumper, although at least it's not trying to be an 8P! Any idea what intercooler you've got on it mate?
no idea you know just as much as me about the car but its very big would there be a make or name on it smwhere
where about in pembroke are you
Live about a mile away from Tenby, so about 50 odd miles from Aberystwyth
That offends my eyes.
Any idea what power its running?
Also, is the drivers inner wing rotten?!
just for info mate. if you get a grill, it has to be a s3 one, not a3. is it fibreglass or plastic? maybe reiger.
looks jap inspired with the number plate...
each to their own mate. I think white rings with the white wheels would be good alongside a black grill. Good luck to you.
What did you give for it ?
Not to my taste but could be tweaked to look a lot nicer.
not rotten some serface rust and inner plastic arch missing
