    Ok here it goes I have never done a thread before but thought I would give it a go . I have owned my first audi ever for 2 weeks . Not knowing the car I had a full compression test done for peace of mind . Followed by a sump drop and full service to give a clean bill of health. When I first got the car she was a mess . Unloved and had been passed around .

    Since owning the car for nearly 2 weeks I have done a few subtle touches to her to make her mine . I first started by blacking the grill and all badges . Followed by the rear lights meeting a shade of tint 
    Next was the wind deflectors fitted followed by my wheels which came of my old vauxhall. The car was already slightly lowere so sits quite nice on the 19s . Even though 5he were a pain to make fit . [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I am aware these are only little touches and there is still a long way to go . But thought as a newbie to the audi scene I could post my progress for people to watch seen as I am so nosey at everyone else's .
    Tomorrow's job will be a brake over haul of new pads and disc along with a lick of paint for some sad old callipers .

    After a morning rummaging round several scrap yards manged to find some goodies that I needed for a steal .
    Managed to get my boot spoiler in the right colour .
    And also got some bulky door blades in wrong colour . However they do match the colour of my wheels so unsure whether to keep the grey or go silver . Any way here's a few more progress pics[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    After messing about all weekend with bits and bobs . Replaced the brakes and neatened up the callipers . Decided to give her a first proper wash in 2 weeks of ownership . Still lots and lots and lots to do . But I'm happy with the progress so far . [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
