Audi A6 Build

Recommended Posts

I haven't done a build thread in a very long time and when I do a build thread I tend to keep the car for longer so it seems like a good time to get started on a new thread after buying my new car. 

 

So about 4 years ago I built myself a VW Bora. It was a 1.9tdi in blue which I fettled with quite a bit, ended up bagging it and put some nice wheels on the car and after having it around 2 years I decided to part it out and buy something a little more "fun" which turned out to be a BMW E36 325i. I loved the car but driving an older car again proved to be a little annoying!

The E36

After that I bought myself a B6 Passat estate that I didnt really modify and ended up selling to my dad to finance the car Id wanted for an age, a MK5 Golf Gti which I originally bought in red. The car got got a full body wrap in Orange and got lowered then some 3SDM 0.05's were added for good measure. 

 

The Gti

The car stayed this way for a little while but the fuel economy was killing me, especially considering I love driving! So after owning the car less than a year I decided that I would sell up and buy something more practical and friendly. I got offered a swap for a MK Golf Sportline which after a little consideration I decided to go with and sell on. 

 

The Sportline

Once the Sportline had sold I made a very stupid decision and bought a B6 Passat saloon that turned out to be a right bag of $hit!! This forced me to look for a PX again but this time I wanted to make it worthwhile so I started the hunt for an Audi A8 or A6 and after around 3 weeks of serious hunting I managed to find the exact engine, colour and interior that I wanted but it was in Lincolnshire(around 4 hours drive). 

 

I havent dont anything to the car yet besides having it detailed by Reflect Detailing Co but I do plan to get the car bagged on wheels and ready for VW Days in 5 weeks time. 

 

Here are the only photos I have of it but there will be plenty more(including the interior shot) as soon as I have a chance!

I love the look of the Avant model, I dont think Im gonna be looking at anything else either for a while! 

 

Mine is the 2.7Tdi, went for the DSG model too which makes it a lovely comfortable barge to drive haha

 

looking good bassman  :)

 

 

Thanks man, hopefully it'll look better soon!

So I've had the car 4 months and due to some cash flow issues, namely buying too many damn Nikes Ive had to hold off on the car.

 

Over winter Im hoping to get wheels and coils or POSSIBLY air ride, that would be ideal but Im not holding my breath! 

 

Here's a picture just for the bump
