    8L-8P, Don't do it!

    Alright folks,

    I passed an Audi A3 8L with a A3 8P front bumper and grill today and I just wanted to say it looked awful, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

    Cheers

    I believe the V12 plate tops it off beautifully

    I was bombing down ze autobhan and was approaching a red A3, then noticed it was debadged and lowered so thought I might be in for a bit of fun with another S3 until I noticed it had 5 doors! Looked back after I had passed and seen the criminal conversion. It wasn't as bad as the silver one in this thread as it had the full 8P black optics grill but it still made me burst out laughing, what a waste of money.
