    Thought I would post this here as it not really a project thread but just my Audi which will have a few changes in time.

    Bought my 2011 Audi A3 2 litre TFSI sline sportback in July from Audi in Worcester with 50k miles on the clock and I'm loving driving it. It's scuba blue and it has half leather/cloth seats, cruise control, Bluetooth, 6 cd in dash changer, auxiliary point, parking sensors, chrome exhaust tips and the silver strips above the door handles.

    I have also enabled the windows one touch open/close from the key fob.

    Here's a snow foam clean just after I got it.

    Had my number plates fitted on the car last month and gave it another nice clean.

    Only problem So far: I was driving home from work after a night shift last week and lost all power when accelerating. Took it into Audi in Bridgend and it was a faulty coil pack which they then changed all under warranty.

    Hoping to get it remapped, a full stainless steel exhaust, maybe some new alloys, have it lowered a bit and maybe some new brakes. Also might get the silver roof rails if I can pick some up for a decent price.

    Here's the S3 pedals I have just fitted

    Had the pedals off eBay for £60 delivered which was good deal. Yeh hopefully get the foot rest but a bit short on funds at the moment.

    Looks neat mate.

    Some wind deflectors always look good and also stop washer fluid running along the windscreen and in through the front windows if you have them down :D

    Car looks great.

    The pedals make a huge difference, added them to mine not too long ago.

    Where about in S. Wales are you?

    Just had the mot done the other day at Audi in Bridgend and it passed with flying colours.

    Only plans this year are to debadge the rear and get some wind deflectors.

    Probably get the whole car machine polished aswell.

    Haven't updated this for a long time. Only put front wind deflectors on, debadged the rear and had the alloys powder coated.

    Looking at getting a RNSE head unit upgrade, a flat bottom steering wheel, having the rear windows tinted and a remap

    Could do with some metal pressed number plates and a nice shiney exhaust.

    Had the mot done last month and it passed with flying colours. Getting two new front tyres in couple of weeks then iv got it booked in next month with Audi Bridgend for a major service and brake fluid change.

    Had two new Goodyear EfficientGrip tyres fitted on the front today and I had a slow puncture on the rear drivers side repaired. Also had front wheels tracked and they were slightly out. £220 for all that.

    It's going into Audi tomorrow for a major service and brake fluid change for £370. Expensive couple of days.

    Today I removed the chrome tailpipes and polished them up with my dremel and some metal polish. Pretty happy with the result.

    Just fitted some metal pressed number plates. Looks a lot better. The car just needs a good clean now.
