    Lookin' nice and clean, just need to update those front and rear bumpers to get rid of the rubbin' strips, like the wheels. How do you find using those wind deflectors, any good?

    Not sure about the mirror covers. I have the gloss black ones from Mrs B,s cab and didn't know if that would look better. May have to have a trial swapover. N8 I have tried to be conservative in my spending which is why I went down the non oem route to save a bit of cash. Having 2 audis to run a bike and 3 kids means I cant throw cash at it as I would like. I love the smooth look so went for that

    Very nice Blackie, liking the rims, go very nicely with the A3

    Although black wing mirrors would tie in with the theme a bit better IMO. But very nice car all the same, really starting to like red cars at the moment!

    What did you use to clean, polish, wax etc.

    Rog . When i got the car a few months ago I used the meguiars 3 step paint system and now just use autoglym shampoo and meguiars quick detailed. I will rewax in a couple of months ready for winter.

    Windows are dark tint back and light tint front. It looks darker all round when the doors are shut. I have had no probes but that's not to say some jobsworth arse isn't going to stop me just because he can

    Its on H&R springs lowered 35mm , the wheels are 18 inch but cant remember the offset.

    Give Motorsport Wheels in Stockport a ring & speak to Steve or Mike. Tell them i told you to ring & they will do a good deal. I have always got my wheels from them & they are excellent.
