    Yes it is standard mate for a facelift. The reason yours had a dip in it is because yours must be a pre-facelift? Mines a facelift and the lock panels are different you see. You can't swap them about either (from facelift to pre) as my friend tried to, they have totally different connections and fittings. Sorry! (although how annoyed would you of been if you had tried to like my mate was!)
    I maintain that ANYTHING can be fitted with cable ties.....

    errr, welly how did you secure your engine back in?

    fran i like the colour coded insert on yours, its a slightly different shape on the facelift isnt it, mines pre and doesnt have that dip in it, just flat

    think i may go with carbon wrapping mine, if it looks cack just rip it off again

    sorry matey, not liking the silver at all, the bumper looks loads bigger and more subtle, just like an everyday hatchback rather than a subtle sports car

    hmmmmm undecided about that to be honest, nice idea but mesh puts me off it, mesh reminds me of corsas with mahoosive flycatcher bumpers smeshed to the max lol

    not sure what else you could do with it though, s3 centre exit exhaust, or twin exit?

    i think spraying them similar to oem would look good but colour coding doesn't look nice IMO to much of one colour

    think im leaving the wheels untill they need a referb could'nt bring my self to risking ruining a nice set of rims, but have been thinking of doing the whole wheel antracite when referb is needed, there a really quality wheel though so cant see them needing referb any time soon
