After a brief stint off the Vortex after selling my 2004.5 Jetta GLI last year (See http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...-(Austin-Texas)... I am back!
I just bought a 2006 silver A3 2.0, Automatic w/ DSG. I have always wanted an Audi and I managed to find a 6 year old A3 with only 30,000 miles on the clock. I haven't even brought it home from the dealer yet because there were some scrapes on the front that I'm having them fix. Here is the listing for the car: http://www.fiatusaofaustin.com/used/...6c95241f4d.htm
I was nervous about getting an automatic after driving a stick all these years but I think the DSG will be pretty awesome and I could not find this car in a stick shift down here in Texas. I am interested to hear everyone's thoughts that have driven both. Hopefully I will enjoy the DSG and not regret it.
Anyways, my first order of business will be window tint, APR Flash, and Turbo Back Exhaust. Any recommendations for a good exhaust on this car? I had a 2.5 APR downpipe w/ Techtonics cat back on my Jetta and it worked very well. Is there a better way to go on the A3?
I'm happy to be back on the Vortex. Will be posting some photos very soon.
Now the bad things. Cam follower, pvc valve, and your car burns a little oil. Check it every two to three tanks. Its

Still trying to figure out what this thread is about?
2009 Audi A3 2.0T DSG S-Line: HPA Stage 1, HPA DSG Stage 2, APR Carbonio Intake, S2T Paddle Shifters, ST Coilovers...
This thread went downhill fast ;-) Thanks for all the advice everyone. I still need some advice on a good exhaust for the A3... I'm going to Stage 2 ASAP. APR 93 Octane w/ a full turbo back. I had a 2.5 APR downpipe w/ a Techtonics cat back on my GLI and loved it. SHould I go with a 3" on my A3? What brands are best for delivering power and reliability without a cheesy rice burner sound?
The A3 forum is like going for a haircut and getting a lap dance at the same time.
