Audi A1 by mgpdoc ••

Recommended Posts

Doctor   

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.

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

 

55C1ECF7-BB4D-422B-AB55-3EC42CA23ADF_zps

 

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

 

521C707B-21FE-42ED-976E-B6CC5784993C_zps

 

No giving heads up for dealerships from me

 

Much better

 

3456CA10-4694-491F-B725-CC197BC010DB_zps

 

Will propably also debadge the rear for a cleaner look

 

4C845448-E94D-47D1-A517-7FCEE57B8261_zps

 

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. 

 

DAA133B4-35D6-4460-8369-878674D66891_zps

 

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. 

 

00C3030F-7A8C-44FA-BBC7-52B704B3576F_zps

 

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

 

FDA78164-FC66-4E46-AA18-D9826BA9E3FE_zps

 

FD3F5C02-08A1-435F-AC88-04CBE63B2101_zps

 

Boy was it good looking

 

248BE36C-4A2B-4364-9C4A-3B9E543888CB_zps

 

92DA56ED-F6EA-426C-80D9-333ED86B8C77_zps

 

No comparison

 

EDD038E6-31A2-44E8-8C15-A14CEE7DF3FA_zps

 

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

 

535F7F99-1201-4CFF-A9E4-0C4D0AA99335_zps

 

Hadnt noticed they have difference size body to be honest

 

So it didnt fit

 

9609CE13-9D36-4044-8D4B-3034E255D77E_zps

 

However I did notice something

 

E6D8C962-CF95-4AC6-9CD5-C2CC7326E713_zps

 

Necks were removable, so, changed them and voila

 

2B3F22D5-750E-4291-AD73-0BE251AEC7EF_zps

 

9F4CBF15-A7B6-4A48-99CA-D82CFD8B2D6F_zps

 

Now it is perfect

 

7DDFAF69-4598-48C4-98F0-F7E7D402E2B9_zps

 

7DD2C2C7-DF5F-4BBC-B54A-CDD5103AF1EA_zps

 

212F6905-15D5-470F-8F28-ED58A2142E8B_zps

 

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

 

A828BB9A-AB21-4DBA-A357-3144824B3D48_zps

 

And after

 

D7955944-8E9E-467F-AF07-29616570C55B_zps

 

Again before

 

DEFE7715-3EE4-43B8-9D35-1CC3C145D135_zps

 

And after

 

2D2BDBFE-9891-4CF1-A559-BDDBEC06FD1D_zps

 

Dat wheel gap doe

Hey mate, how is everything. Was browsing your car on instagram, looked great mate, sad to see it go. It was great. 

Follow me on instagram too, @ mgpdoc

 

I am sending you a pm for something I want to ask.

 

Cheers,

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

:D 
 

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

 

Started removing things from the trunk

 

BB145D9B-F7BE-4DC0-BA51-77A89DBBF674_zps

 

2C4AE2DA-23BF-4D7E-A88D-F5DA0CD8FFA2_zps

DD0D7C1E-DF4F-4BE4-9C05-F853C75DB8CF_zps

 

Time for some black love from 3M car wrap products

 

E372A853-5162-45DD-81A1-BF345F3D4D59_zps

 

95206428-E801-4C98-967F-E85B066AAE83_zps

 

Started re-installing things

 

98ECA8FB-4ACB-4080-8EB9-D5C8E2779C4E_zps

 

9A6251F0-6299-4DF7-A225-BAF1D6915666_zps

 

I love the quality of the cut

 

C3D0E986-E485-46D2-9B4D-2F797CA47D26_zps

 

Reinstalled the OEM foam behind the plate

 

C55213CE-B4DF-40C5-9572-C933B190600A_zps

 

Much better

 

DD182174-7834-4BE0-B5F0-666B711768E3_zps

 

And some better shots

 

6D43D09D-5922-4E95-9A6C-8D46C0AEB163_zps

 

C3A258BB-2451-4B51-8859-21F59AD573B2_zps

1CED494E-F8A2-4FFE-ABCD-A1AD3C1669E7_zps

 

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

 

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

 

E2B3CD98-A191-4EAC-B511-851FCCC85DB7_zps

 

D4FBA093-6706-4288-96DA-C5E64A687557_zps

 

A71A1E54-9718-4BCC-8F64-B22352FD992A_zps

 

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


 

E6F50E7A-5A16-46B9-BFC4-5823F96FD4EA_zps

 

Had these inside

 

2BD78E6A-5E50-4AF5-9DCF-E02D8656FA39_zps

 

E2B3CD98-A191-4EAC-B511-851FCCC85DB7_zps

 

046C8438-0078-4FCF-8B3E-A3846A9F902F_zps

 

D4FBA093-6706-4288-96DA-C5E64A687557_zps

 

And a manual

 

6081B4D5-F678-4780-8B08-DEAF58B43B12_zps

 

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.

 

5D57A826-F83C-4541-9BC2-249FCB877C1A_zps

 

A71A1E54-9718-4BCC-8F64-B22352FD992A_zps

FFA27235-3931-4AD3-9FCF-EB32E64952DF_zps

 

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

 

CED6C6B3-0C0B-40F9-B7EF-C007A53E66B0_zps

 

29AADC35-59BC-49F6-8AEC-C0FC5B2C4420_zps

 

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

 

C53AEE7A-E4C1-406F-BCBD-F92BAEF7AB79_zps

 

27DB5969-21A7-4B14-A8E2-411852E296E8_zps

 

Installed, look so good if you ask me

 

BCC9C4BD-DC0F-4E8C-8838-A760DB06C3E6_zps

 

52B6201F-765F-4458-9466-FCEF57703974_zps

 

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

 

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

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


 

E98DEFB6-0866-4B7A-AB17-37D2E5F651AE_zps

 

4F044BAB-4F93-40E4-AEFF-4A0A702D23D6_zps

 

B1FBB0D6-1093-440D-953F-55449ED003E3_zps

 

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. 

 

F82E3A3D-E449-4C66-83E0-C8BC17153005_zps

F7604F7D-B059-4D28-8FE6-F0C059281381_zps

 

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

 

A709C9E9-8520-409D-A3B6-A373F3648735_zps

 

Looked great, I loved it

And then with the other Audi

971ED24E-E7F4-4546-AA0E-7CFE7A807D77_zps

 

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

 

F825F4FD-76E5-4B54-A0A7-DD031826C887_zps

 

Received them

 

DA161569-699B-4477-8615-74A6A48CE65F_zps

 

Installed it asap

Received Some Black Audi Emblem Rings that I ordered from Germany

 

FCDB0CCF-605D-45BB-879E-3A3D9537C325_zps

 

Great quality to be honest

 

C395C466-C2CB-4A34-9709-9787E8651205_zps

 

So from this

 

10A42388-230D-4F40-8435-42B7532E5105_zps

 

To this

 

419CA14F-8139-4EB3-8E90-0F5D07CB9940_zps

 

Removed rear one too

 

1CF1B7CE-9406-4DD7-8458-16CAE738F751_zps

 

D645E0B3-CC43-46B5-B959-5A80A78E0743_zps

 

8E7CC3B8-F9B5-4690-8E04-EFD4D860D5BB_zps

 

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

 

861990C8-3E4D-490B-A7DC-B0DE2370CC76_zps

 

1F009066-342A-4432-BE8F-5CF3088622F8_zps

6F04CC7C-A9AF-4023-BFC2-860BAA96D0AF_zps

 

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.
