Hello people of the forum :-) I have at the weekend become the proud owner of a rather sexy looking A4 so thought I would say hi and share a couple of pictures with you all :-) The car is a 1.9TDi (great economy, is better on fuel than my little work car - peugeot 106 1L) although it looks far from being a diesel! Being a 1st time Audi owner I can't say I know much about them, so am going by what i was told when i bought the car, and what I can spot myself. The car has: RS4 bodykit JE Designs rear spoiler Coilovers all round factory upgraded dash to include trip computer concert / bose sound system carbon door mirror covers HID headlights full stainless steel twin exhaust from the manifold KEI alloys tinted rear lights As you will see in the photos, she is 1 tasty looking car! I have a few issues that need sorting out, 1st and foremost being that the clutch is on its last legs, so will be having that and the dual mass flywheel done very soon, and have been quoted circa the £570 mark (using LUK clutch parts) if anybody knows of anywhere bristol based that can better this price please let me know. Was told that the cambelt was done around 20k ago, but there isn't any paperwork to back this up so I will probably get this done as well as a service, just to be on the safe side, have been told by someone at work that I should expect this to be around £300, does that sound about right? after the mechanical work has been done I shall then be turning my attention to its looks, the front bumper/splitter has a fair amount of damage to it from being caught on a kerb at some point, as well as a nice dent from some considerate !Removed! with a towbar. I shall probably heat the towbar dent bk out as smooth as possible, repair any cracks from the kerb damage, then the most likely option at the moment is to carbon vinyl wrap the front end (splitter and bonnet) another mod I intend on doing sooner rather than later is to retrofit cruise control on the car as i cover a fairly high number of motorway miles, and cruise control is quite an essential for me. Have seen retrofit kits on fleabay that are around the £100 price range that includes the bottom trim for the steering column, so my question is this, anybody have any experience in fitting 1 of these kits that has any advice or knows of things to look out for? My brother has also suggested that I should replace the existing climate control panel for the newer type as its much better looking, and seeing as the current panel is heavily worn on the buttons, I'm thinking this is a good idea, but have no idea as to whether this is a fairly easy task or not, or if the newer type console is even compatible or not? Quite a few questions in there I know, but thought these forums are bound to be the best place for me to get my answers :-)
