I have a Mk1 (8L) Audi A3 which I love.
But the Audio lets it down, I have the standard head unit (Which I'm happy with since adding the little adapter at the back so I can use my Ipod etc). But... I would like it a little (a lot) louder and more BASS BASS BASS :eyebrows:
Thanks for the info guys, the JOM coilover kit sounds like just what I'm after.
So to clarify that kit would include shocks and springs x2. But in the image I only see two? Wouldn't I require 4 four?
This kit on ebay seems amazing value at 163 pounds delivered:
Audi A3 96-2003 JOM Coilover...
I love the car and had the cam belt done and a big service only 6 months ago so I think generally its ok, still drives nice excpet the suspension being a bit rickety.
I know 1999 isn't old old, but the prices of some newer cars are so cheap that I wouldn't want to invest more in this car to the...
Apparently my A3 (Mk1/8L) the suspension/shocks are going :(
I have a friend who can fit parts for fair rates but how much are the parts going to cost me?
If it's too much I'm thinking maybe it wont be worth doing as the car is quite old already (1999). I've just shelled out on...
Its a nice thought but to be honest if you don't know much about cars probably best take somebody who does to give it a check over.
If a price apepars to be too good to be true its generally for a reason. That car would sell for more then that even on ebay! So yeah might be a bargain but most...
The E30 M3 has been regarded as a classic for sometime, they prices they go for reflects this.
I believe there are only 3 left in existence that have only ever had 1 owner, one of those belonging to the main guy at Alpina.
As much as I love and am loyal to Audi, the E30 M3 would be my car of...
I love your system too Chris, if I had a newer car I'd seriously go for one of these badboys. But hard to justify shelling out so much on a 99 plater (As much as I love it!)
I wish my car would ROARRRRRRRRRR more hehe
Finally got myself some new alloys. Some of you may know I bought some off FLEA'BAY' before which arrived to be not as advertised at all so went through the whole refund paypal decision route and it took agessssssss. But yeah all sorted now!
Treated myself to some Rs8 replica's 19" and got a...
Thanks for the guidance Chris. I've just given it a go and it did start first time so fingers crossed that's done the trick.
I'll report back in a few weeks to let you know how I fair!
Thanks Again! :)
I've only just found this thread, but wow! What a car, all the mod's are tasteful and not OTT. The red interior is really nice, never even knew that was available! Big fan of the Miltek systems, hope to have one of my own some day.
Thanks for sharing the pics and info :)
Thanks for the reply Chris.
When I was driving after it started the light was still flashing for the whole journey home (about 10 mins). I was too scared to stop the car before I got back incase it wouldn't start, but when I got back I turned it off, left it off a few mins and it started first...
I've never had any problems with my 1999 A3 except for a screaching noise sometimes on start up which I was told it normal and a common things with A3's of this age.
However, lately sometimes when I try and turn the ignition on the car doesn't start first time. It usually starts after 2nd...
I had a little knock today and lost me passengers side mirror, just the glass, luckily the rest of the unit is ok.
Wheres the best place to get a cheap replacement that can be sent out asap sort of thing?
