    Current Cars Mods.:
    I currently have an Audi A3 2.0 TDI 140 running on 18's in stunning black with black grill!

    I'm pretty happy with the standard car - it performs and handles really well for a diesel but I'm sure the modding bug will strike.

    I also get 50 MPG from it fairly consistently (more on a long run - low 60's if I granny it!)

    First up I need to convince my wife that the car is in need of some more mods.

    MODS/Planned Mods

    - Panel air filter
    - Turbo upgrade
    - Injector upgrades
    - Remap (switchable though)
    - Sport Brake pads
    - Braided Hoses
    - S3 Brake disks
    - A few suspension upgrades

    I have plans of taking the power to the 200/250 bhp mark.
    About:
    My last car was an awesome Audi A4 Avant 2.0 T FSi Quattro which we had to sell because it cost us too much in fuel as we now do a high mileage. It was the best car I've ever owned and did around 33mpg on the town up to 37mpg on a run.

    220bhp and Quattro made the car a lot of fun to drive on the bends and in the wet! It just pulled like a train in all the gears.

    Purple Audi A3 1.8T Sport. I was pretty happy with the standard car - it performs and handles really well It is currently for sale!

    I also got 37MPG from it fairly consistently (more on a long run!)

    Before this I had a Rover 220 GTi which I stripped and rebuilt.

    I managed to get the NASP power to 175bhp, but there was a big reliability issue - perhaps it is just a Rover thing!

    The one thing that wound me up was that the manufacturers performance gains were at best very optimistic, and they didn't tell you that certain mods require work in other areas.

    This is partly why I started this site - to try and get a reference for mod
