burbank2broward's a3 build thread

This build thread might take a while to finish but ill start it up anyways. Most of you guys know me and my old golf but some still don't... Anyways short story goes.... A few weeks after SoWo 2012 I decided to part out my car and get something worth while to drive. Since my golf was an auto I was bored out of my mind driving it. Anyways.... I sold the air, wheels, exhaust, intake, etc etc and had money saved up and ready for the new car. But life threw me one of the biggest curve balls...... My father passed away on July 1st 2012 from a random heart attack at the age of 51. So instead of saving the money towards my new car.... I gave it all to my mom to help with bills and expenses. This build will most likely be little small mods here and there and when I move out and my mom is ok on her own I will start adding more of the expensive mods, aka suspension and wheels.

Heres some pics of my old car.... GOLF 2.5L MK6, V2 autopilot air ride , 1552 tarmacs colormatched candy white, eurojet exhaust, nuespeed p flo intake, GAYOMATIC transmission


















Heres a pic of my new car

2013 Audi a3 2.0t 6spd MT

MONSTER MATS!

Thumbs up

My Condolences about your Father. I am sure that I speak for a lot of us, you will always be welcome on MK6. Essentially your Audi is a MK6 by relation.

Please keep us posted on your build. I like the New Audi's alot. Especially the "S" series. Audi maybe my next vehicle , unless the Scirocco comes to the states!

this car is my motivation. I was photoshopping my grill last night and I really like the clean look of the chrome vs all blacked out. Also I've always wanted a pair of polished/chrome wheels.... That kind of setup was going to be my next set setup when I still had my golf.... this is how I want my car to look. fishbowl and all

Those A3 monster mats are much nicer than the GTI.
