    Hi everyone,

    this is the first time i've joined an Audi forum as this is the first Audi i've bought! finally left the mercedes behind and cannot believe why i didnt do this much earlier?! I got a 2011 a4 black edition in white, its a 2.0 tdi the 140 bhp version. Wanted to join the forum to get any help with any issues that may arise in the future.

    Im not big on customising big expensive cars, want to keep the engine as it is as much as possible but if anyone has any recommendations on how to enhance the appearance, exterior or interior, would be much appreciated. I've added a few snaps too.

    Quick question, i've gone for the red and black leather seats, was wondering whats the best way to look after them? I dont want them crackin up in a few years, hows best to avoid this?

    Cheers

    cheers matey, will give that a go.

    Also does anyone know the ins and outs of remapping? i've been getting told to get it left right and centre but no1 seems to know that much about the negatives of it, it can't be that good can it?!

    nice car, i didn't know they did the 177 in the pre-facelift ones. same engine that i have coming on thursday.

    have a look at the DTUK tuning boxes, you can get the power to around 217bhp and a good increase in torque, its also fully removable too.

    That won't be 177 bhp - it's 170.

    Edit - going by your reg it's a 140bhp ;)

    Still a good looking car :)

    134 bhp :p
    Good luck with your new car, i Just get some Lord Sheraton Leather from the local supermarket there not very expensive but they do a good job and keep the leather clean and penetrated and make them shiny.
    Get some Carbon Fibre 3d lettering number plates, they are fully legal and i have had mine 16 months 13000 miles never got pulled by the police, they look amazing and they get all the attention people feeling them. they are £43.60 from Demon plates, 3D Carbon Domed. look at the links below for info.

    Ha I take it people are very specific in this forum @dynamik! I will have a look into the plates, seems like a cheap but effective enhancement
