Those wheels look much better than the originals. Good luck with the project

Small update, managed to get my sideskirts
Painted and fitted with a little help of a mate
Who's good with bodywork.
Also fitted some new rear lights to freshen
the rear up.

Been a whille since ive updated with the cars process,

i was told on the mot that the front flexi was blowing, so thought i would
upgrade to a stainless manifold, downpipes and sports cats.




These took me a good 8 hours to fit, as you have to remove the front bumper and move the front panel forward to get to the inlet manifold and remove. once you have done this you can remove the exhaust. IT sounds so much better than before.
Just need to get a cat back now as still using the original.









Ive also had the wheels redone due to kerb marks!!
had to dive round like this


Decided to paint the front grill and badges black i think it loos so much better














cheers for looking

What a transformation!

Wheels look so good. I love that style of BBS alloy, had CH's on my Golf, which are similar. They suit so many cars so well.

Nice, I didn't know these existed until I found your thread, they're like a nicer R32. Video with engine sound please!

Not a big fan of Audi's, have to admit with the tweaks you've made to yours it definitely stands out for the better.

Small up date.

Just been enjoying the car lately and noticed a few little niggles, had a squeak from the rear.
Which turned out to be one rear caliper seized. Got my son to give me a hand to replace it and show him a few checkers to do on the car.

I also had strange vibration under my feet which you could feel from 30mph onwards. I had a bad feeling it was going to be expensive. Turned out to be my front tyre was deformed. Was strange as didn't feel anything on the steering wheel.



Managed to get a billy bargin of eBay a custom made kms stainless cat back exhaust.
So fitted it a soon as it arrived. Well chuffed with it.











Just need to get back under and give a tweak to get it sitting in the middle of the cut out on the bumper. It sounds bloody awesome I'm well chuffed.

Looking good. I miss my old Quattro sport in a way. It can't hold a candle to my Impreza performance wise, but I do miss the refinement and build quality. I bought the other half an a4, but it's just not the same. I might have another one day. Yours looks really good, top work.
