    Wow, looks sooooo much better with the changes! The orange bits were horid though!

    Kinda agree with Dan about the plate... a tinted UK plate would look spot on with all the black.

    Does anyone know where the best place is to get smoked plates?

    See that is what i meant... i haven't actually heard of smoked number plates before thats why i asked... didn't expect a smart arse comment for asking such a simple question... not to mention you didn't even type it properly.

    cheers mate, im not sure about this smoked front plate business tho, not sure i like them....

    plus i dont like the completely "murdered out" look...i think it looks gash when people start blacking plates and light and all that tbh

    Fair comment, I like a bit of contrast too myself, a subtle tint on the plate might look nice though.

    How did you achieve the extra drop on the front? Im guessing as you mentioned it, it wasnt just as simple as winding the coilovers down?

    yea bit of a mare, had to remove the front helper springs and fabricate longer drop links to get the arb off the driveshaft!....but honestly i have noticed litterally no change in the ride!...if anything it feels better because the arb isnt fouling the driveshaft anymore (it was doing that when it was 1.5 inches higher)

    makes all the difference tho, that little bit lowwer than most other A3's on coils

    Looks spanking now Max, love the interior makes me wish i kept my 280 momo! you will have to spill the beans on how you got it dropped so low!! serious looks good mate i think i might change my front end to go lower as with the sport bumper and splitter its a joke! so could do with info on how you did it.

    install and interior is looking fresh! centre console grab handles looking good trimmed. MY11 lights suit better too with the darker look.

    some clean plates and silver indys would be cool.

    thanks mate, i love it! yea its a nicer wheel than the old one, if a bargain flat bottom comes up tho ill snap it up! its pretty easy mate, remove front helper springs and get the drop links fabricated longer! when you do that it brings the back down slightly, im happy with how its worked out tho, before the rim was about 5mm out of the arch, but now its brought it exactly in line with the arch, no poke, just flush!

    just need to get some small spacers on the back now to get it perfect!

    yea mate loving the MY11 lights, look so much better!

    silver indys? whas one of those? lol

    mini update.

    got some lamin-x, yellow and black, tried out the black....not sure on it myself



    really like yellow fogs, but dont know if it would work with the wheels etc, hmmm

    turns out as the car is an 03 with an 07 s-line front, there were no fog light units behind the covers! so the glass/plastic was bonded in place....so cutting the lamin-x to fit was a bit of a challenge, and if you got down on your knees and had a propper look its not a tidy job...but cant tell just looking at it. h34r:

    also fitted black plastic front rings, as the old silver ones i got painted just chipped right away :angry:

    they are a bit sharper looking than the OEM ones, but look ok i think.

    next on the cards is an OEM optics grill, as the painted silver grill is starting to look tatty :D

    also another pic of the car and me at early edition!



    another lesson learnt is the car is not compatible with multi story car parks.......chasis colliding violently with concrete is not a sound i want to hear again!
