Project Audi

3 years worth of images disappeared when the t***s at Photobucket pulled the plug ...
I plan to re upload the pictures over time with a reliable host. For now, skip to the bottom of page 27 to catch up.

30 September 2014,
Here's my soon to be daily driver ...

2005, Audi A3 2.0 TDI sport.
Larva grey metalic pearl paint
80k miles
Full service history
2 Previous owners
Half leather/alcantara
6 speed gear gear box
Parking sensors
Interior light pack
Footwell/puddle lights
Electric windows
Central locking
Centre armrest
Concert Audio system

In good, original condition.


Needs a bit of TLC to get her back on top form and before she's back on the road.
Then it'll be a running resto with some quality OEM + mods.... Cant wait to get started ..there's plenty to keep me busy!


As she was on Saturday 27 Sep 2014

Looks good even as it is! Hard to believe a car like that is almost ten years old.

Is it just me, or ten years ago would the average ten year old car not be nearing the scrapyard?

OEM+ is the best way! Good luck!

Wheel of choice?

I'd shoot for these if you can find a set. Audi A8 flat fives. I think they're 18"

Service records indicate over 2000 miles until the next service is due. Never a fan of long service intervals I'll be carrying out a full filter service ASAP.
Other plans include..

Pdr on passenger door
S line rear spoiler
wheels refurbished .. Maybe do them myself or have them professionally refurbished.
Brake calliper refurb in black or silver
Two odd tyres so will replace for new matching set all around
Engine bay detail
Touch up stone chips
Full exterior detail with machine polish
Full interior detail
Possible new head unit.

So .. Plenty to keep me busy !!!
