    Hello All,

    Just bought my first Audi A3 and I love it! Much better handling and abit more poke than the Mk4 golf 1.4 that I previously had!
    Car in Question Is a 2.0FSI, Would have preferred diesel, but being young and insurance being a big problem I went for the 2.0FSI as some how the petrol was cheaper? (Still not bloody cheap tho!)

    Looking to do a Few mods, more styling than engine work as I don't think there's a lot you can get out of this engine?
    Hoping to do the following:
    Lower 40mm on Rokkor Springs
    BBS CH Rep wheels in gun metal grey (wish I could afford to put Genuine ones on)
    Facelift S-line Bonnet,front and rear bumpers
    Tinted Rear Windows (not too dark)
    MY11 or MY09 Rear lights (not sure what would look best)
    Wing mirrors and badges in gun metal grey to match wheels
    S-line Tailgate Spoiler
    De-Cat Pipe
    K&N Induction

    If anyone can advise if there is and engine mods to give it a little more throttle response/power without spending 100's that would be great!

    And obviously i'm Going to keep her nice and clean :D Can anyone recommend some good polish and wax?


    Sorry if you find me asking a load of questions!

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome matey! List of mods look good :thumbsup:

    With regards to getting a bit more from the engine, there's not that much that can be done unfortunately. Induction kit, de-cat, remap etc can all be done but you'll see little gains for the money.

    Yeah cheers hopefully should look nice when its all done not gunna go mad on the modding as only 18 so don't have a massive amount of funds to put into it,
    I thought that would be the case regarding engine mods I can get it remapped quite cheap through a garage I know.

    I notice you have retrofitted cruise control to yours..how much am I looking at to put that on mine?

    Thanks
