Today we had the pleasure of Paul's (Rhymesaka) A3. He had stumbled along the way, across my old KW V2 coilovers via Luke and my old VW Helios via Jason. Here's how it looked when we started, very dirty and neglected!

Pulled the car outside, road test and make sure all was ok. Paul's Helios were sitting saucey on brand new Falken 452s, 215/35/19s.

I need to stop browsing this forum.

Posts like this make me want to order another BE.

Very nice!

Well.... where to start, it's been a long time coming. After acquiring the KW V2's from Luke over the summer, things escalated :laugh:
Then I was pointed in the direction of Jason, price agreed and I was rollin' down to his gaf for the Helios :wub:.....

Now onto today's graft, in my defence Nath had promised a good clean so I let her get in a state :cool:

I haven't touched the exhausts since I got her, Karl sorted them right out though, what a beaut, the amount of comments I've already had on them lol...

The car has been completely transformed, I've never liked the RS4 BE alloys since I ordered the car but now with it lowered on the helios, the car looks so much more aggressive, over the moon with it.....

Can't thank Nath enough for his input, knowledge etc, if you need a refurb go to Nath, if you need help with acquiring wheels go to Nath, you need your car looking fresh go to Nath.... You need any help with anything go to Nath, oh and if you need an air freshener go to Nath, he's the man.... :wub:
Cheers to Luke and Karl for their input also, I owe a few beers :beerchug: :wub:

Love this shot

i was afraid part 2 was about your car. I didn't wanted to get anymore jelly :)
car looks great! from a professional yourself, what's the best way to keep the rear hatch/bumper area clean? or get the dusts off?
I wash my car in a weekly bases and San Francisco weather is good and not really dusty. However since my car is white rear hatch/bumper area settles alot of dust. Would Clay baring remove those residues?

I see something else i like too! :) Wht on wht baller!

Good job that, real transformation. Car looks sweet on the Helios wheels really like them.

Nath could you PM me some prices for details and refurbs? I will want mine doing in the spring and the standard wheels I inherited have seen better says! They have the laquer peel problem I am lead to believe a lot of Audi wheels suffer from? They will be replaced in the spring but when they are off I want them refurbed for winter wheels :)

Looks great with the white on white. Think Rico will be after those BEs too, if you're selling them.

I'm here to sadly announce that the Helios and KW V2's will be up for sale in the next week.... :crying:

It's taken 2 months of deliberating but you can't be a part time baller, its a full-time ethos :laugh:

Back to standard which is a shame but its a car at the end of the day, it ain't worth worrying about....

PM if anyone is interested.

Cheers

Paul

how comes you going back to standard bro?

Can't take the car where I want or need to take it is the main reason....

At weekend its fine I can pick a different route, but in the week when you have to get over 10 sets of speed bumps in the morning at 8am when its busy as hell to get off your estate it gets tiring....

I am actually wounded as I know I don't think much to what the car is going back to, however I won't have the mither that I can't drive the car...

Ballin' is too hard for Paul, the poor lad can't handle it :kiss:

:laugh: I love this :wub:

It's a tough life ey Paul!

Right all, the car is back to standard....... Q7 ride height :(

The A3 S-line set up has to be the worst 'sports' set up out there, the wheels are too sucked in and the arch gap is ridiculous.....

Not sure what my options are for a compromise....

The Helios and KW V2's are off now, if anyone is interested let me know.

I will get round to advertising them this weekend.

I wouldn't bother lowering it again after taking the coilovers off Paul.
