    Default A3 8L 1.8T Build

    Hey guys,
    Not new to ozaudi but new to posting, so starting with a build thread of my a3.
    2001 a3 1.8T with mods slowly happening. Still on p-plates so have to go easy with the performance mods.




    Completely stock when bought at 73000kms

    Since then did minor mods like parking lights and HIDs

    hey mate, welcome.

    What plans do you have for the car? Highly recommend getting a Stage 1 tune (also undetectable by the boys in blue if you're concerned)

    Thanks man.

    Mod list to do right now:
    Install boost gauge into centre airvent
    Coilovers
    Gloss black vinyl wrap the roof

    I will be getting the ecu tuned by Quattro Motorsports in Sydney when he arrives back from overseas. Can't wait for that.

    Future mods:
    Wheels
    Paint the black parts of the bumper body colour
    Upgrade the speakers
    And slowly enter the performance mods.

    Audio mods I have done so far:
    -Kicker comp 12" twins (Selling this at reasonable offers, pm if interested)
    -Kicker zx1000.1 1000W mono block amp
    -Cadence 2awg wiring
    -Sony mexbt4050u headunit
    (Wiring is bad job, will clean it up after i get a single sub and install properly)

    I bought those lights as drls but realised they would look ugly and saw boot light wasnt as great.


    Made the 12V ignition wire for HU neater. Probably should have spliced a wire from behind and connected than this way. It is connected to a S Connect fuse, have no idea what that is but it is perfect so HU turns on when key is in ACC and off when key comes out.



    I ordered the fascia kit from uk on ebay and although it states it should fit my car it clearly doesn't. Will find a proper kit later on but thats it for audio right now. Will upgrade the tweeters and speakers soon.

    And a mini acceleration video but traction was horrible and kept turning on.
