Awwww those pictures are a tease!!!! Get her washed and dried so we can have a better look at her, as craigcull said about his mates, a black surround for the grill would match up with the black window surrounds nicely :)

Well done on that bud, clearly a beauty buy!!!!

Look like DTM is the same like NON S-line !!! which is the MOST stupid .... So 2.0T will cost hald of the DTM ... but on the DTM they will not put a good grill, non xenon headlight ? Why WHY ?

Hi guys, what oil do u use in ur 2.0t im thinkin mob1 0w40?

I got a DTM myself. Personally the oil will depend on what sort of service plan you going to use. If you plan to service it yearly I will strongly recommend mobil 1 0w40 as you suggested.

The 5w30 edge that scotty76 suggested can be used as well but is generally used for cars on a long life service plan.

But from personal experience the Mobil 1 0w40 is a incredible oil. It does the chain and oil pressure a lot of justice especially for early morning or just generally cold starts.

I know it retails for around £50 from halfrauds but if you have a costco card or a friend with one get him to get it for you as its only £29 or £29.99.

Xenon was a optional extra. Thankfully mine has them :happy:


And just to comment on everyone talking about the grill. It is actually in piano black so it quite shiny which i don't think is the same as the SE which is a matt grey or matt black finish.

the DTM was built around the SE model reason its got the se grill

also in the pic is the bonnet open ?
if not take the bumper off and refit it as it should be the gap is way to big.
prob had the belt done by a div that didnt know how to refit

Ah, but my question was about whether it was the same shape as the SE.

That would be the best choice. Try and use audi oil filters as well. Not aftermarket unless you using MANN filters as those are what audi use.

Xenon lights on ours and very bright they are 2 lol

Yours has halogens from what I can see. The xenons are different.

The way to tell is if you sit in the car and look were you turn the headlights. If you have a option of were you can press a button and a knob pops out and you can adjust your headlights up and down. Then you have halogens.

From exterior point of view the headlights look like normal lights. The xenon have like a half crystal ball in the headlamp. And they dont use conventional bulbs. Nor do they have the knob to adjust the headlights as they self adjust.

That is the factory xenons.

Our lights do have the pop out dial 2 adjust the light position so must be halogens but my god are they bright, its a white light and much better than our old cars.
