New to the forum

Hi Everyone, I've Steve from Manchester. I've just purchased a 2008 Audi A5 3.0 tdi on Friday, seems pretty clean, 92k miles FSH everything works. Pretty much stock, back boxes have been removed and remapped to 310bhp so i'm told.... will take it to my tuner to be honest just for piece of mind. I'm going to try and leave this car alone as i'm very much a drive way mechanic in my spare time but i'm sick of throwing money at cars. It was this or a 335D to be honest im happy with my choice. I love BMW's and owned a few over the years but this just feels nice and refined albeit 10 years old.

So i've just ordered some new badges, and some 20mm wheel spacers, and some H&R sport lowering springs, but thats it.

This forum has already helped, so thank you

For now..........

Steve

Thanks for the welcome. I promised myself this wasn't going to a project car. I have had the car a week. the car has already had the DPF gutted and mapped. So i thought i'd look at handling, H&R sport lowering springs ordered, rear anti roll bar, and front strut brace. I've used similar set ups before and liked it so going to try it on this plat form. Then i'll switch back to more power and more stopping
