    Thought I make a little project thread.
    I picked up a 2006 A4 S line 3.0 Tdi Quattro TT at the start of may.
    she's done 136k so with great service history form Previous owner who had had it for 10 years, he bought it as an ex dealer demo.
    Car has never wanted for anything mechanically but bodywork has suffered a bit, hence I got it for £3K.

    Jobs done so far.....

    Engine oil change.
    Ram panel filter
    Hydrogen carbon cleaned
    Painted Calipers
    Painted Wheels
    Fitted new Exhaust tips.
    Painted Grill surround
    Debadged rear partially.


    To do list.

    Gearbox oil change
    Rear Diff oil change
    Fuel filter
    Pollen filter
    Paint Grill black
    Asign my plate
    Attend to rusty arch
    Front lip spoiler
    HEL brake lines and new fluid
    Tint windows

    Racechip or remap??

    Any other suggestions.......

    A few pic's........

    Tidy little motor that mate for the price. Personally I wouldn't chip or remap it but all the other mods sound bang on, good luck with it.

    If I knew it was broken I would have changed it before MOT :smiley:

    At least it's getting an upgrade.

    Springs have arrived, just after I've got the first spring out. The rubber under the springs is knackered so off to audi to get some soon.
    Bit more work on the Quattro to remove the spring compared to 2wd.
    Ordered new shocks this morning too, might aswell do it all while I'm here.

    Mot sorted this morning.
    Waiting for new shocks to arrive now, next weekends job.
    On another note, it flew the emissions test, very low apparently. So the hydrogen cleaning must have helped.
