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.

Audi Dealership Delivery-Room









First meeting with the Golf







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



Some quick shots of the interior







Love the lines



Hello diesel power, first time in my garage



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



No giving heads up for dealerships from me

Much better



Will propably also debadge the rear for a cleaner look



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 :)

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.



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





Boy was it good looking





No comparison



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



Hadnt noticed they have difference size body to be honest

So it didnt fit



However I did notice something



Necks were removable, so, changed them and voila





Now it is perfect







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



And after



Dat wheel gap doe



Cheers more to come !

Mike

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.

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

A1's are such cool looking little cars. I bet they are a hoot to drive, too. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

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.
