    Hello all,

    I have just purchased my second A3 (first one being the 8L model) and i would like to know what mods the previous owner has had done to the car.

    Its a 1.9tdi Sport in grey (any special name for the grey?). I don’t believe it is the S-Line model as the front bumper is the standard sport bumper, but it does have the S-Line wheels, rear spoiler(?) and S-Line badges on the door. I am also curious if the steering wheel is standard or not.

    Can someone have a look at the photos below and let me know what’s standard and what’s not? I know the wing mirrors are aftermarket jobbies and I’m not sure if I like them or not.

    I plan to get it remapped soon, not too hard as I don’t want to be messing around with the clutch. After remapping I may look into an air filter but would like to know everyone’s thoughts on this. Any recommendations on getting a bit more out of the 1.9 are very much appreciated.

    Hope you like the car:

    Fairplay, your good. Thank you for the **** ton of info, very grateful. Could you remove the chassis no. from your post though, could it be duplicated or am I being too paranoid?

    Over the moon with the car, the move from petrol to a tdi has definitely put the buzz back into the driving again. Before spending the money on a remap, is a £30 k& n air filter really going to make much difference? Change the sound of the engine? At 18 year old I fitted a £10 air filter to my mk3 5 door pimp wagon Astra - I was a badman - made it sound beefy when accelerating hard, will the k&n do the same? Can't see how as it's only a filter that replaced the original?

    This is what I'm on about: AUDI A3 1.9/2.0 TDI 2003 - 2009 K&N AIR FILTER KN

    Mirrors are definitely not standard either, and look too chrome to be OEM S3 ones.

    Looks good mate. Defo need to get those Audi stickers off it. I'd be inclined to take the S-Line badges off too as i'm not a fan of trying to make a car look like something that it's not but that's personal opinion! Like I say though, looks like a nice car in good condition :sm4:
