Audi A3 3.2 Quattro

Hi, had my a3 for about a year now, so thought I would show what I'm up to.

It's a slow going project, so don't expect major changes.
when time and money allows I'll do more.

Here's a few pics when I first got it and gave it a clean









At the same time I fitted some wind deflectors, number plate surrounds and a aux lead.




After a few weeks I fitted a forge induction kit. And a club sticker.





I left it like that for a couple of months while I searched for a few parts.
I slowly found a few bits
Some 19" bbs ck's which I had powder coated
From this


To this




I think they look awesome.

Got myself some Eibach -30 springs and a cupra r front splitter.






While I was cleaning it I found some rust bubbling at the bottom of both doors where the
Door blades fit so a trip to Audi and they are repairing it all under warranty which is a result
Booked in for the start of Jan.


Picked up some Votex sideskirts as well



Can't wait to get it all fitted in the new year. Just need to sort tyres out.

Well got a few things done on the car gave her a full service and prepped for the mot. Both rear springs were broken so put the Eibachs on and replaced a inner cv gaiter on the front.

Replaced the b pillar trims as old ones were peeling.



Also got round to fitting my cupra r front splitter from this


To this







Finally got my tyres mounted to my bbs ck's and balanced







I spent the next couple of evenings polishing and sealing the wheels in the front room.


I got some new bbc centre caps




I then popped them on the car. I'm well happy
Before


After





Just need to give the car a good clean now.

I've left my sline sideskirts and s3 rear diffuser at my Bodyshop so waiting for a phone call to get them home and on. Then going to look at getting my11 rear lights and led bulbs all round.

Thanks for looking

The wheels look great and the rear diffuser makes a big difference.

Looking great! I'd be going down the exactly same route if I had an A3. Eibach springs are great & BBS CK are my favourite for most VAG's.

Looks nice. How easy was it and what did you use to fit the cupra front spoiler? Looking to do this to out A4 S/Line with the same bumper.

It was quite straight forward to fit mate, you need two people to do it so one can hold it in place. as it don't quite meet the curve of the bumper. you have to trim the two legs in the middle and a bit of each end. i used 8mm headed tech screws to fit. took about two hours as took my time to get it right.
