    Well, Hi Guys, I recently (about 2 months back) purchased a Audi A3 8P Sportback 170 S-Line in Grey, Goes like **** off a shovel in all fairness. I had it with the full s-line leather interior, climate control and what not else. Its a 57 plate so hasnt got any DRL's or xenons :( Ive recently purchased Pressed plates for it, Tinted the rear windows with what they sometimes come with out of factory.

    Would like to know if anyone has found a hid kit that does foook up the wiper motor what alot of people have been having with aftermarket HID kits :/

    But yeah i started off with a 1.4 petrol Golf mark 4 with a fair few mods

    Slammed on its **** on FK AK Coilovers
    Polished Audi TT Comps
    Bonnet Bra
    Gloss black mirrors
    Tinted windows all round
    Debadged grill
    HID's
    Colour coded ... Probly understand where im coming from!

    But i dont think i could ever leave German cars, best cars going.

    Hope you enjoy

    Grant.

    You need to get saving, Nigel is the man for Xenons and installations all electrical (NHN).

    What else you got planned for it?
