    surely its down to preference? if you have a particular mod and want opinions then come and ask but to ask what you should do to your car seems a little odd?

    cheers ibis edition! il check it out. My plan was, gloss black mirrors, gloss black s3 grill, black rs6 wheels ( 2010 shape ) or black bbs lm reps! both on 19'' 215tyres, 40mm eibach springs or coilovers. That was the plan

    My thoughts exactly, surely post a pic of your car, then say i'm thinking about doing this - What would guys opinions be? What do you think of this? Even show example pics of other cars with that particular MOD

    This is my car currently how it is! i was wondering do you think black rs6 2010 alloys would look nice, or some black bbs lm's, its hard to find a red a3 pic with any of these rims on!

    cheers.

    thanks mate just detailed her today , if your on a budget i would suggest getting v-maxx (thats what im getting for mine) they are only around 400 ish from dpm peformance dont get the cheaper ones off ebay tho if you like your ride quality they will be way to hard and uncomfortable but if your budget is really tight then get some of them they range from 180 ish upwards

    i have seen v-maxx around, it sounds like wot i'm after then!, cos i do not want to sacrifice all of my comfort! is it a bad idea to buy second hand coilovers? Do you think 19'' black rs6 2010 alloys would suit my car? or would black bbs lm's reps be better?

    with second hand its a grey area you can get some really good ones but they may need new springs or other parts keep your eyes peeled members on here sell them every now and again , depends on what look you want for your car really oem or aftermarket ish , i love bbs lm's and the rs6 wheels im thinking of getting 19" lm's myself with black centre's
