    Hello! I have just decided to make the move to Audi. I am 21 now and have had vauxhalls since I was 17 (3 corsa B's & a D) I decided to change to Audi after my dad getting the A4 S-line and just the build quality and the quality of the drive is second to none if you ask me. After looking into A3's I have found a A3 2.0 TDI (170) Sport 5dr 2007 with 34k on the clock at my local audi dealer. The car has really been looked after and I am very happy with it.

    Here's a few pictures from the dealer as I don't have it home yet!

    Hey there, welcome to ASN and Audi ownership. As for mod ideas... don't look at N8's profile and you should be ok :ninja:

    jk, there's WAY more than enough inspiration and ideas for all tastes on here, and there's always someone willing to help you find/source/fit or individualize any mods you have your eye on.

    I think DPF delete is the sensible first step on TDis.

    Thanks for the welcomes!

    About the DPF. I live in Ellon and work at Dingbro in aberdeen a good 40 mile drive roughly a day, would you still recommend removing it? I have only heard of problems with the DPF through short city driving...

    Also can anyone point me in the way of any project threads of the same car as mine 5dr? I'm struggling to find haha.


    Thanks

    Thought i would update you all on the progress with this as i have it back on the road.


    Untill about 3 weeks ago car still looked the same as the day i got it apart from de-badged and added my short number plates...
    [​IMG]




    then i decided to spice it up a bit.. lowered 50mm on the rear 40 at the front, led side lights, no plate & interior lights.. and also sprayed the front and rear Audi badges gloss black.
    [​IMG]


    so it was looking like this..
    [​IMG]


    next was the yellow fogs
    [​IMG]


    then i finally got round to the wheels.. i went for the 18" S-line wheels.
    [​IMG]


    Also my team heko wind deflectors arrived today but haven't got any pictures of that yet.


    cheers.
