    HI DIGZZ

    Like to congratulate you on your mod look slick, well done.
    I would like some help if possible. I have Audi A3 SportBack Diesel on a 55 plate. I have had a front end smash( rad pack slam panel all gone) I would like to repair it so i thought i may aswell do a facelift to 2010 either a s3 or black edition front with drl lights. the questions i have are
    1. Will i need a 2010 slam panel?
    2. 2010 rad pack?

    ive had a look at the part lists but there is no mention of slam pannel rad pack etc

    Thank in advance.

    Anis

    1. The silver slam panel won't need changing but the Front Panel will need to be changed to a 2010 - 2012 version ...
    2. No need to change

    Lovely work what you did with your A3 mate. I started a similar project 2 weeks ago, but on a 2007 Sportback. The question I have for you Digzz is did you changed the central electronics module or is the original one. I haven received the cables and the aLWR yet, but I hardly wait to install them. I'll come back with photos.

    So where do I start it’s been a while been so busy with my car and life in general.

    1. New OEM Spoiler



    Reason being is I used an aftermarket spoiler from eBay …which started to ripple as you can tell from the pictures below.


    Cheap Aftermarket **** ...




    2. Bluefin Re-map - Shout out to Ad's for the Hook up




    3. Gloss black Oem pillar B trim Covers




    4. Gloss black edition S3 vents .





    5. Black edition gear knob




    6. OEM Shark GPS/Aerial




    7. Black Edition Door cards all round

    Old:


    New :




    8. BOSE Box Grid (illuminated)



    9. Skylight feature :

    I got inspired by these two cars below to do a skylight theme on my new Black headliner Interior roof.

    Vauxhall Adam



    Rolls-Royce Wraith




    I ordered a fiber optic Kit on eBay and some fiber optic strands. When they finally arrived is when I realized this wasn't going to be a walk in the park (poke hundreds of holes in said headliner, etc...) , so the headliner just sat in my room for a week or so . I printed some star constellations and used them, to poke holes though the headliner and layout my star field. At first I kept everything correct as to how one would see them in the sky.

    Here's a pic of what the fiber optic strands look like while I was putting them in(poked a hole with a thumbtack through the back, ran the strands through them, then when finished, used a nail clipper to clip off the excess on the front side):



    I used a glue gun to hold all the strands in place.






    This took me a couple weeks of a few hours of work a night when ever I could spare some time. When all was said and done with the fiber optic strands it was time to put the headliner back in the car! This was a lot harder since there was a lot more weight on it now, and it was hard to shimmy it back in without it bending on me and harming the rigidness of the it. I ran all the fiber optic strands together down the rear pillar of the headliner of the car and they came out where the little storage area is back there. I ran the 12v power to the rear interior light ..so when I turn the side or main beam headlights the automatically come on. I also have a remote control to turn them off or change the colour or brightness or even have a random colour to flash or dim.




    Just a little test.......



    Night time test :






    End result :

    The end result is a cool, sparkling, multi-color, star field in my car! I can change the colors, twinkling speed, etc... They aren't bright enough to distract me while driving, and can barely be noticed if looking from the outside into the car.

    Here's a little video :




    And a couple of shots of my interior:

    Looks awesome. New car basically. How easy was the new dash/cluster? Is it a fairly straight swap? They're pretty cheap on eBay it seems...

    Hi, I purchased a scratch and dent '10 that was in a front end collision. Working on putting it back together, basically replacing everything that one would in a front end swap, so your thread and parts list has help a ton. Thanks. Just curious, is the Fan/Radiator/IC/Condensor pack free floating so to speak in your first picture? I'm ready to install my new pack, but I can't figure out what will hold it in place? Just the two rad hoses and two IC hoses? Is the only thing that hold it in place is the four "bushings" that slide into the radiator support?

    Hi diggz,

    can you tell me how did you fit in the A5 seats at the back?

    And also, how to take off B pillar ?! I'm really puzzled, don't know how to do it without damaging the surroundings or the pillar cover itself :-/

    Thanks ash, the radiator surround is what I meant, but to clarify, there is no bolts/screws between the surround and that pack, just the four insulators, two on each side of the radiator, and two on the bottom? And when the surround is off the car, the pack just hangs geld by the hoses? I'm trying to figure out if I install the pack first then the surround, or install the pack into the surround then mount the surround on the car.

    B pillar take a look at this :

    Price Please For Piano Black Outer B Pillar Covers S3 8P3 3dr

    A5 seats in the back is a bit of a mission.

    1. Trim down all the baby hooks
    2. Get a hammer and bash the thing that sticks out and locks into place for the seats
    3. Trim down the seats a little one of the A5 seats.
    4. Remove bottom frame from old A3 seat and replace over the A5's.

    Door cards won't fit. Gear knob is from a black edition A3.
