Thread: Audi A1 by mgpdoc ••

    Default 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 !

    So where were we. Oh yes, some things to show you, now that I found time to update this again

    Even before I got the car, I have been wanting to do this thing as follows

    Started removing things from the trunk











    Time for some black love from 3M car wrap products





    Started re-installing things





    I love the quality of the cut



    Reinstalled the OEM foam behind the plate



    Much better



    And some better shots

















    Daytime pics will follow to show how nice it came out.

    What is more, these were ordered, and arrived in my hands as well







    But more on that later.

    I have also started my question here and there, for the answer to my lowering questions - yes I know it is the second week since I bought this car, but you know how it is. LoL.

    Cheers, more to come

    So, these were ordered and received



    Had these inside









    And a manual



    Seems like i was a template from inside the box.
    Not sure if it supplied with it though.
    Thing is there is something weird about the footrest area.
    We will get to that later.









    It would be a bolt on, if it were like on my other cars, but here the plastic part to be replaced is missing, and the carpet in the area is like this





    Not sure how I am gonna do it, but I will figure out how I guess sooner or later.

    Took some time to put these on, especially the throttle one, where the clutch one needed to open some holes





    Installed, look so good if you ask me





    And I need to figure out how to make it look complete now

    [FootRest just left to stay in place - not installed]



    Cheers guys

    Car got its first cleanup since I took it out the stealership







    Car then got treated with CG EZ Glaze, and then some of SwissVax's finest, CRYSTAL ROCK for added protection and gloss, applied by hand.









    Then I threw on the Thule box, to see how it looked. I was skeptical beforehand, thinking it would be big for this car. But boy was I wrong



    Looked great, I loved it



    Family meeting with Golf







    And then with the other Audi









    Ordered these from ebay, because the OEM aerial would not fit with box on, and because I like the clean look of it



    Received them



    Installed it asap





    Car then got some snow time







    [miss my Quattro system, I'll tell you that]

    Received Some Black Audi Emblem Rings that I ordered from Germany



    Great quality to be honest



    So from this



    To this



    Removed rear one too







    I was thinking to go for no badge at all, but at the moment, I installed the black one, which looks great and we shall see









    I also ordered two rear-wiper-delete kits from gecleant.de, one for the A1 and one for the Golf, and waiting to receive those as well, to remove that rear wiper on the A1 as well.

    In other news, I may or may not be toying with the idea of ordering this.



    Let alone, having already ordered it, who knows.

    Cheers
