Sup Guys,

I know this is like a halfway thread as i'm posting this abit too late so no shouting at me please :haudrauf:.
Bought this car from Cargiant in December 2014, A3 2.0 TDI S Line 140 bhp (cr140) with half leather s line seats, s line 18 wheels and so on..

Then it slowly started with Tinting the windows, getting roof wrapped Gloss black, Painting grill gloss black, debadging the rear.. Small mods.. Then i wanted to upgrade the sound so started off with the headunit being change to Pioneer SPH-DA120 carplay headunit and then bought 2 JBL 12" GTO1214 Subwoofers running off an Audiopipe Mono 1500D amp :hubbahubba:. I have yet to change the components though. I had then got some teamHeko window deflectors fitted, white xenon hid kits, flyeye tint the front headlights. It was then time for a Service, so booked her in Audi and came with one fault with rear shock leaking slightly, So then thought its time to fit the coilovers, got some budget Jom Coilovers (I dont use the car for track or anything, its just mainly for show and would recommend them as i havent had any problems yet) and then she looked sweet! I got abit bored of the s line wheels (They are up for sale, pm for details) I had then bought LRN Blitz Deepdish 18" with really aggresive fitment.. 9J rear with 15mm spacer and 8J front with 15mm spacers :scared2:..

These photos are all progress photos i had taken:

I think the Sports Direct photo looks great...I'm afraid I don't like the new wheels but each to their own. If it were me I'd swap your side S-line badges for black versions (same as your front one) as you don't have any other silver on the car. Looks great though you've done a nice job

Thanks for your opinion, the sports direct photos were taken by a photographer at a local meet by Jharrisphotography, the rest of an iPhone 6 yeah i think i will get the badges changed to black ones and the rear hoops, thanks though appreciated for the comment

7pm is usually a good time to roll up, its quite casual and great atmosphere, some very decent cars occasionally too (seen liberty walks M3, Tron Aventador, tasty 911's).

ps where did you get your lowering coils fitted from?

Oo i normally finish at 10, so doubt i could make it, but will try. I got them fitted from a guy i met at the berkshire dubbers meet and asked for £50 only.. Hes based in woking does it infront of his driveway done few of my mates too.

@FaisalFazeli don't let me see you putting that sh1t into your tank again! I just noticed it's at asda!! Use the Shell garage on the left hand side as you're going towards the M4 at J5! (I think it was shell I can't remember now).
