    Hi Guys...
    New to the Audi Scene moved over from a civic.

    Currently Rolling in an Audi A3 1.9TDI SE (I know basic)
    Looking for some modding in the near future when I pick up some money!

    Here it is....Be gentle

    hi there matey. welcome to the forum! beware, there are a lot of ppl on here who will give you VERY bad ideas and ways to spend money you don't have lol

    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

    anyhow, the SE is indeed quite a basic model (no offence intended). might help to tell us what spec you DO have tho?


    top of my mod list would be:

    1. S-Line bodykit incl. fog lights
    2. "Sport" seats (can be had relatively inexpensively if you look hard enough!)
    3. bigger alloy wheels (!)
    4. a nice set of springs to lower the car a tad

    best of luck with the car mate.

    we all started somewhere mate, youll find we are a friendly lot and always willing to help and very very rarely take the piss unless its something spectacularly bad... the alcantara covered engine bay springs to mind that really got some 'discussions' going

    it will be a good chance to see how things look on similar cars and that way you can get a better idea of what you want to do, its good as well to chat to people about the things they have done as you can see if the work involved is worth the result

    Hold on a minute mate - SEs should have auto lights/wipers and coming/leaving home lights as standard. The alloys you have are for the "standard" model as well - did you buy it recently? If it was advertised as an SE I'd be taking it back and asking some questions

    Anyhow as all the above have said we all start somewhere! Just don't paint your car pink and give it a matching alcantara engine cover with replica wheels and RS3 badges and you should be fine! Just don't park next to N8's car or you might feel bad lol

    Something's definitely not right mate. For that age of car SEs had an arm rest, auto lights/wipers DIS, climate control and concert II single slot CD player and CH/LH as well as 16" alloys in a different design to the 15" ones your car has

    Doesn't sound like you car has any of those things... it's not an SE mate

    I personally would just do the 1.9TDI

    But others will advocate getting rid of everything (including the rings!) up to what you think looks best really

    In regards to your model spec there are a few ppl on here with PDFs of all 8Ps from when they were launched. Ask for the right one for your model year and check the standard spec against what your car has
