Audi A1 by mgpdoc
 
So. Here is something new to my personal collection.
A new car, a new colour. A new project, but nothing like my other projects I guess.

It is an Audi, once again. an A1 Sportback, 1,6 TDi.

Optional extras were:

-bi-xenon
-led tailights
-black interior headliner
-fog lights
-leather 3-spoke steering wheel
-leather handbrake and gear boot
-steering wheel controllers for audi multimedia
-Audi multimedia system [navi, bluetooth, etc etc]
-electronic clima system
-armrest
-parktronic system
-7,5x17 wheels
-sport seats
-cruise control system

Not bad listing for a daily I think.

So here it is when I collected it two days ago.

I introduced one to the other.

My other Audi, the blue one, was not there to talk with them

They went out for a ride together

Not a bad wheel to begin with - Needs more lowz- I know

Hello diesel power, first time in my garage

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...psrfyw8b6i.jpg

First thing I did after getting to know the car, which gives the feeling of a much bigger Audi to be honest, in terms of quality, I did this

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...psbvjrntl1.jpg

No giving heads up for dealerships from me

Much better

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...pst0hbandm.jpg

Will propably also debadge the rear for a cleaner look

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...psyjj8jqw2.jpg

Dont know if you noticed, but car is equipped with some stripes from factory. At first I was like, I will remove them, but they are rather discreet to be honest, matte ones, and will see.

While I was there, I noticed that my THULE roof rack was over the car.
Just saying, hehe.

Cheers guys :)

Nice car! Looks like fun.
I see it it says that this will be a daily.... the Golf started off that way too didn't it?

Nitrorea 01-16-2015 11:53 AM

Love the car, can't wait to see what you will do with it!

Softishman 01-16-2015 12:10 PM

Daily....! :) for how long?!

mgpdoc 01-16-2015 03:00 PM

LoL you guys. I wonder why it is you dont believe me. LoL

mgpdoc 01-16-2015 03:00 PM

Well, second day of ownership, and it has begun.

It is an illness I guess, that does not go away.

So, one thing I did not particularly like in the interior of the car, was this part

I think it is practical, but not good looking for an Audi.

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...pss0259wum.jpg

In the other, A3 diesel we have in the family, I had spotted a much better looking ashtray, which my father refused to trade for mine, LoL, so I ordered mine with no second thought.

Collected it from the dealership today

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...psbe8xbvj7.jpg

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...psnnusnwji.jpg

Boy was it good looking

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...psvtrhh53f.jpg

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...pssyl3rlep.jpg

No comparison

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...pstpv118s2.jpg

Watch the differences though (dont mind bottles and sexual implication lol)

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...psai8pxbrk.jpg

Hadnt noticed they have difference size body to be honest

So it didnt fit

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...psvm7dfwji.jpg

However I did notice something

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...pswesgany0.jpg

Necks were removable, so, changed them and voila

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...ps1gzxnl1x.jpg

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...psp8lb7ucb.jpg

Now it is perfect

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...pssezrgday.jpg

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...psghjglgvh.jpg

http://i912.photobucket.com/albums/a...ps2lzm3v10.jpg

Then, coming back home, I knew I had to do some work on the trunk. I was always a fan of clean looking asses and all, so debadge time.
I strongly suggest you debadge your cars when they are fresh and new if you are to do it anyway, glue is so much more friendly and kinda comes off with the letters easily.

So.

Before

And after

Again before

ModdedEuros 01-17-2015 11:23 PM

Congrats on the new ride. Your other build thread was/is epic and enjoyed following it

VMRWheels 01-21-2015 09:11 PM

Nice find and look forward to seeing what you do with it! Too bad we don't get those here, it looks like it would be a fun car to work on.

mgpdoc 01-21-2015 09:13 PM

This project might need wheels and lowering
You guys think anyone would be in for sponsorship and coverage and all?

razr 01-21-2015 11:20 PM

cant wait to see this build thread!

vlkswgnbgmn66 01-22-2015 03:46 AM

Thank you very much for the comments guys.
I already have some plans in my mind for the car.

Since this is my 3rd project now, at the same time, might take some time for the to see daylight, however, all i can say for now, is that more things are on the way.

LoL

Stay tuned.
