    Totally agree, I could maybe have done a few different things with the kit styling, front isnt to bad, not my cup of tea, but lets be honest, that is by far allot better than some of the crap we've been unfortunate to view, its not exactly flowing, but its not exactly ridiculously bad either, this was iirc the 1st RS3 kit to grace the 8P's, cant recall who made it though, was it ABT?

    I dont quite understand why this is a crime ? OK it looks like a New Q3 but people put S3 bumpers on TDi's and s-line badges on non s-line and even Bose speaker grill on non Bose systems. RS steering wheels on S cars and so on.....One guy here last week even had a R8 badge on his steering wheel !!
    I mean its a £8k motor !! its not like he converted a late model and is looking for £30k or sumit

    I'm with Ads & Nige, does't look too bad an attempt but badging it as such is wrong. Also claiming the parts to be actual RS3 parts is wrong too. "hey, ive just blown away an RS3 on the bypass in my corsa..."


    I'm sure somebody will buy it...

    looks like a monster from side!

    I can see though why audi didnt make a 3 door rs3 as it may have appeared too chunky... or perhaps like bmw 1m, they could've fiddled with the cabriolet.

    In fairness he's clearly labelled it as what it is - an A3 made to look like an RS3 with body kit etc... maybe he should make it more clear that he didn't get the parts off a scrapped RS3 or something, but he's not actually going "Guys, guys, buy my RS3!"

    Some people on this forum have, in my eyes, ruined their cars by lowering too far, putting silly alloys on etc - but I just accept that everyone's different, each to their own, it's not my money, the world would be a boring place if we all liked the same things etcetc (cont. pg94)

    its an old fiberglassy kit weve seen many times. all hes done to be smart is follow the rs3 style of painting each section a different colour. for a cowboy job its not that bad but its no where near rs3 category ive seen some of this guys cars on the road im suspecting ill be seeing this soon
