    facelift

    or depends if you are using smoked headlamps and side repeaters, then I would go for the smoked ones

    Facelift for sure, much more modern, make the car look newer

    Smoked look a bit 'max power' and the pre-facelifts are just old and drab!!

    I would also be tempted to ditch those wind deflectors. And if it's not a detachable towbar, i'd swap that too.

    The tow bar is going off mate. Just got an s3 rear bumper brand new for 10 on ebay.. Also got an s3 front bumper on saturday so she is being booked in to get front and rear s3 bumpers and s3 spoiler put on in next few weeks.

    Going to keep wind deflectors and i like them but cheers for advice.
