    My Brilliant Black S Line 1.8T

    took some pictures at the weekend when i cleaned it. Doesnt stay clean for long! By the way if anyone can tell me how to register with a username instead of just my facebook name i'd be very thankful, it wont let me because my email is linked to facebook so it says already in use! I tried a different email address and never received the verification email (checked junk folder.) Only plan for the car is an S line badge on the grille, but im not sure yet. If anyone can recommend a realistic one on ebay (rather than 20 quid for the official one) then i`ll give it a try. Was thinking of getting tints but i dont think i will now. A remap would be nice but its got an approved audi warranty so not sure where i stand in that respect.



    I oOEddOo I and MrWhItEwOlF like this.

    160hp although apparently the 1.8 is more like 170 or so when its been on rolling road and remaps to about 210. 0-60 is 7.6 which feels pretty rapid.

    is that the badge you used mate? It just looks a little too chrome compared to the OEM one. The one on the grille looks fine though, if its the same one?

    yeah it is but for the money its the best you will find. you could wire wool it up as its on the front one one really notices its crome v.s satin. look at the ( S ) its one of the oly ones thats filled v.s embossed just as the real one is.
    defo the best one i found as the real one wont fit ( you need the little inlay on the grille) like in the quattro.

    Didnt realise the real one wouldnt fit. I thought the two clips pushed on the back of the horizontal slat, and it pushed into them with the gap in the badge going over the vertical slat. How does yours work are there just some nuts on the back to tighten?

    Because fran my mate audi are gay! the older grill look so much better ( the bars ) its the same as the se for gods sake. they should have the s3 grill on it and the s3 should share the rs3 grill.

    I fitted the chrome effect version off Ebay and it nicely matches the chrome edge to the grille. The dull wing badges look exactly that - dull, in fact may swop them for chrome-effect ones.
    The grille badge came with a clip which was not a direct fit to the slats of my '09 but a bit of cutting off plastic and some Superglue it fits a treat.

    Fitted the badge today. It is the type with 2 clips, doesnt feel like it will fit but if you force it on it goes on fine and wont be coming off in a hurry! Looks pretty good. Will get a pic when i get round to it.
