    Hi Guys & Girls.

    I'm Gaz, 20 from Warrington.

    I've owners various cars since passing my test at 17, always wanted an A3 but insurance used to be silly, finally got decent insurance and found the perfect Audi for me.

    I picked up my Scuba Blue Metallic 1.6 SE Technik Petrol a week ago and love it! Can't stop smiling every time I look at it and see it on the drive.

    Here's a couple of iPhone pictures.

    Up to now I'm just going to do subtle mods, windows lightly tinted, Sline spoiler and my alloys.

    Thanks for looking

    Thanks mate! It was the colour that really appealed to me! The dealer told me 2 people had turned it down due to the colour.

    One of my goals was to get an Audi before I was 21 and I managed it, I then 21 next month. So I'm happy I've managed it, just subtle things for now until I decided my plans properly.

    Nice to see someone else from Warrington on the forums! Hopefully the NW section will organise a meet soon. I think the colour is pretty nice personally :) give me a shout if you'd like any VCDS mods and I'd be happy to help.

    Looking good bud! Where did you get the spoiler from and how much if you don't mind me asking? Transforms the back end!

    Looks good :icon_thumright:. Spoiler is definitely a must have for those A3's that don't come with it, makes the back end look so much better.

    Just needs to go lower now!

    You also need the S-Line (Black Edition) rear diffuser to finish off the rear end ;)
    I've got one if interested

    I don't like it without the A3 badge, have always thought it makes the back end look unusually...long, if that makes sense. Many others will disagree though, so whatever you like :)

    Just upload through Safari rather than Tapatalk and the quality won't be half as bad.

    Car's coming along well!
