    "Digzz" Work In Progress :

    At first I was going to do a normal S3 conversion then I weighed in everything and I said to myself I might as well go all out!!

    So I’m finally doing a 2010 Front end conversion after deciding what engine I wanted a couple of months ago I decided to go with the cheaper option 2.0 TDI. My 2.0 FSI was too juicy for petrol.

    I’ll be showing a few Upgrades in pictures now and again so keep tuned. I’m getting the conversion done at the same garage that my mate RS got his done.

    I'll be also listing every part needed to do this mod and also a rough price of things. Keep Tuned!!

    Why?

    You can take the right side fog trim area of & probably get in there to remove the pump for the washer jets, most will just flow out by itself, leaves a 2 inch or so reservoir, drain rest by suction/siphon etc.

    My water smells, the car has been standing for a year and it was last topped up with water only not a screen wash mix. I drianed it via holding the stalk for 2min and refilled in with 5lt of cheep screen wash and hot water repeated holding the stalk and filled up with a quality screen wash. Will see what happens.

    Looking good bro, but still far from finished though ay just kidding!!! Hahaa.....

    It's all come together very nicely and was a fun couple months sourcing info and parts to get these conversions done. The front pic you've taken doesn't really show of the facelift lines as well as that of the rear one you posted, plus the front will look a lot meaner once that facelift front lip spoiler is added I think.

    Still very jealous every time I see your OEM parking sensors I think I'll have to do them as my last mod and get rid of my aftermarket ones, lol. OEM just look so clean

    With the bits you plan on adding this will be one bang tidy 3dr mate. Looking forward to the rims, lows flat bottom and other bits you got planned

    BTW, post the fault codes with your fog/ interior lights.... Did you re-check module as we spoke about? Re-check old coding vs new? I forgot what'sapp me bro. I need to have a quick look at my coding as all is well but my rear fog light is still going off with indicator, it's def a coding issue though I remember when I first installed the lights and had a similar issue until correctly coded which actually I will sort out now I have spare few mins....

    How much was the spraying/painting?
    Getting quotes at the moment for front/rear bumpers and side skirts and really surprised at how much the costs vary.
