Spent yesterday and today on the exterior of my Audi. Body had a going over with my kestral DA using AS cherry glaze and then two coats of collinte 476. Wheels were DE-waxed and coated in G3 glass coat. Tyres dressed with AS highstyle.

Changed my wheels again last month for some brand 18" rs6 wheels, as i was fed up of cleaning my previous ones (rs4's and s4's) Loving being able to get my hands inbetween the spokes to clean the insides!!


Also freshend up the front brakes, repainted calipers, backing plates/guards, also sprayed the disc hubs and the outer circumference.

It is a very clean car for 124k, love it to bits but i want to move on now as ive had it for nearly 2 years. Been very close to selling it for good money a few times but i bottled it lol.

Ideally want a newer shape e61 5 series touring (2004 onward) or a 330i or 330d touring (e46) but it would have to be perfect and be a sport/m sport.

You're a mpg geek, a 330i will have you crying at the pumps.

Yes you are correct lol. Fast estate would be cool though. For the past two years ive been doing 6k a year, so thats 500 miles a month, i should stop being a b**ch and get a petrol.

Nice! How did you go about painting the discs?

Masked up the disc face, wire brushed the hub, de-lipped the discs front side and rear side, then just sprayed them with some silver i had at work.

And diesel costs what, 5p per litre more? Its probably cheaper to own a petrol! lol.

Yes it is, thats all i search for when browsing. Has to be German, i think once you've had a German car nothing comes close in terms of build quality and the general presence of looking like posh git. Although i expect most people think Audi, Merc and BMW owners are massive bellends lol.

For a family car I agree, but they are dog s**t for enjoying your driving.

I want a 330i or a 320d Touring for the wife next. But they fetch silly money for some reason, especially in Sport Guise.

If you lot are all after a 330i Sport touring, offer me decent money for mine lol. Black, with black leather, heated seats, xenons & sunroof.

Audi looks lovely btw, wheels are a massive improvement :)

But you never paid decent money for it, so why would I? x

Lovely mate. Is that like a pre-facelift B7?

I love the B7 A4 Sline. I'll have mine in Red. Great alternative to the usual Mondeo.

I see i'm becoming an Audi convert!

Ah. Just the front end threw me a little. Not sure what kind of cash the B7's command.

Ali, you'd love an R32. You'd hate running it though. Haha.

Looks lovely that mate, I want to go 330i/330d touring at some point too... but the thought of not having my 182 scares me!
