    Great Job you've done there.

    Looks like your A3 is getting a lot of TLC.

    Keep up the good work.

    Fran, I'd choose the S Line. Think it will look ace on your car! Stay away from non OEM, most are bad fits and dont look as good!

    Very nice build, fair play for doing most of it yourself, I have broke too many things to risk doing anything to my own cars anymore haha. All I would say is maybe abit lower and some spacers on the back would set it off a treat.

    I have to say, I'm seriously mighty impressed by this, you are the defacto female modder on ASN.

    Very good job, only things I will say & you know are get those skirts on asap & lose the horrible splitter on front, it ruins IMHO the S3 front styling, doesnt compliment it at all girl, your car do as you see fit, just a friendly opinion.

    Again I say I'm very impressed, wish my missus had some of your dna for your car loving lmfao.

    Ok, I've lived with my front rings painted black for a few weeks and tbh, as much as I like them, every time I looked at them, they just looked like they had been nicked!! lol

    Anyway, decided to do them the same anthracite (ish with a blue hue) as the Alloys and mirrors. (Hard to show the colour but they do match the lower bumper Lip, alloys and mirrors. Just looked more silvery with the camera!)





    Even from a distance I can now still see them, so im happy!





    Also decided to have a go at getting some marks off the headlamps. Got some brilliant advice from Jim (Jimmeh) of White Details (thanks Jim) and had a go. Used some Poorboys SSR1 & 2 and Megs steps 2 & 3 of the Deep Crystal System to try to bring them back shiney new! I'm happy with the results so...result!

    Before (were covered in stone chips etc)



    After

    haahaaa I did giggle when I saw your car, I felt embarrased I'd broken 1!!!!!! lol

    Noooooo, detailing for fun is great but everyday is hard work!!! Although saying that, I'd happily do it more often, I like seeing the results.

    With the issue of stone chips to the headlights, have you thought of investing in headlight protector covers from Audi? I would rather have chips on these than the headlights especially with Xenons, they can also dissipate the force against larger stones that could break the headlights as well..
