Tony's Clean and Simple Audi A3
This beautiful and clean 07 Audi A3 S-Line belongs to our good friend Antonio Rocha. He picked it up in 09 and kept it clean and OEM+. He's been a fan of the OEM+ look and likes how it receives "Less attention but it's still modified so you don't get pulled over! It may look oem until you notice some of the features."
This car is daily driven and he drives it to a number of meets and shows, school and work. It's also his family car since he drives his daughter everywhere in a Recaro child seat. Tony's not new to the Euro scene and is a member of German Exclusiv where he helps out with shows like Oktoberfest.
Exterior work is subtle but includes a Cupra lip, Votex side skirts, shaved front bumper, black OEM S-Line grill w/ a plate delete, and a rear wiper delete. No crazy body kit here, just subtle cleanliness. As for performance mods, he has an APR stage 1 software, Eurojet PCV fix, and a Neuspeed P-flow intake. Tony's rollin on a set of BBS CKs 19x8 all around with 225/35 rubber.
To get the slammed stance he is on, an Air Lift full auto pilot digital kit was fitted w/ Air Lift slammed fronts and Airlift performance rears. A 5 gal tank is mounted in the trunk w/ Viair 400c compressor. He has fitted the air himself but wants to redo the lines. We even gave him a hand one night and helped remove the front sway bar.
He's happy with the outcome so far, but as all enthusiasts know, a car is never fully complete. In the future, Tony plans to redo the air setup in the trunk, notch the frame for more slammage, install a quad exhaust with an Oettinger rear bumper and a K04 upgrade. Tony has shown that he can create a smooth, clean car that anyone would be proud of.
A pair of 3s! Edgar's and Tony's A3s
