    Welcome to the forum! :icon thumright:

    Good base, reminds me of mine when I first got it (wish mine came with 6 speed though! Jealous of that). For the 1.9tdi my first port of call would be an EGR delete, turbo back exhaust and map to make the most out of what you've got and improve reliability. Lowering it and changing the wheels will do allot for aesthetics and handling too.

    Fortunately I haven't got a build thread else you would be skint following the mods I've done haha may put one up at some point though as mines pretty much got/had everything.

    If you don’t know the service history, my first port of call would be a full service. Change the brake fluid also. Take a look at your disks on the car. If they are lipped really bad replace all round and install a set of new disks and pads from EBC. Stick on a set of Greenstuff pads and OEM style disks. https://ebcbrakesdirect.com/automotive/audi/a4-b6/1.9-TD-2001-2004/734 Next move on to a decent set of tyres if needed. Tyres can be a really good upgrade, one most people overlook. This will make the car much better to drive, especially the brakes. Then move on to other things.

    Off the top of my head other than the EGR killing everything: engine mounts and boost pipes (especially the top one) are common to go.

    If your anywhere near Birmingham I have vag-com to check for any undiagnosed problems (plus I might be able to spot a few by look/feel as well).
