    Hello folks,

    My names Andy and I live in Bristol,been around the Renault tuning scene for many years and owned a few modified Clios, have sold up and I'm now looking at getting an A4 1.9 Tdi estate this weekend as my girlfriend & I do a lot of mountain biking and the Clio just wasnt cutting it with space. Been browsing the forums for a bit and there are some really nice cars on here.

    So 'hopefully' I shall be the owner of my first Audi by Saturday,please be kind and expect dumbass newbie questions.

    Cheers

    Andy :)

    Thank you Sandra :), will do. Bit daunting collecting a new type of car as unlike the Renaults I dont really know what to look for/check when buying,a friend of mine has given me a list of things so I'm hoping a bit of common sense like no smoke or rattles,service history etc will save me buying a crook car.

    May take a bit longer now,after phoning the dealer up and arranging to see the car,buying train tickets and Flights to get to Scotland I noticed the ebay auction dissappear,rang them up and theyve already sold it,flights & train tickets non refundable so massive thanks to that dealer. Not a good start

    Ok,1 week after joining the forums Ive finally got some pictures of said car for you all.

    As you can see its in ok condition but a few bits need seeing to,bits missing etc. Theres some damage to the front bumper and the roof has a couple of dents where I presume a bike rack was,these will hopefully get sorted soon. Plus ive fitted 1 piece of my first upgrade:blush:

    Is it best to update things in a project thread rather than on here?[​IMG]<br><br>[​IMG]<br><br>[​IMG]<br><br>[​IMG]<br><br>[​IMG]<br><br>[​IMG]

    Welcome to the forum Andy :)

    Nice looking motor. I'm sure once you get some time, you will sort it all out and bring it back to its former factory joy :)
    Enjoy the forum, great bunch of guys here and always willing to help. :)
