    Cheers, I'll have to look into it. Last time I did it seemed like a lot of effort.

    I'm not too keen on the Votex items, think it could be a step too far in terms of what I'm trying to achieve.

    Thanks Paullie! I'm going to miss the Polo when it's gone for sure.

    I spoke to the guys at the bodyshop yesterday and they've managed to sort the A3 bumper issue. I'm not sure if they've made custom brackets or used the ones from my standard bumper.

    Looking forward to updating this thread with some pictures when it comes out in two days time

    Cheers mate, really didn't want to waste any time getting stuck in. I'm starting my new job on Monday so I wanted to get as much done as possible whilst having the free time.

    Really appreciate you offering your help and support. I don't think I am confident enough to tackle the facelift knob mod on my own at the moment, so if I decide to do that you could be hearing from me

    New LED sidelights arrived today, courtesy of Trups.

    Looking forward to fitting them once the cars back. Standard sidelights are some of the worst I've ever seen. So, so dim.

    Just picked the car up. My word it looks stunning! It is shinier than I ever could have imagined!

    One slight issue, the fog lights aren't working, because the wiring wouldn't clip into the fog light plugs. So I'm on the look out for some S-Line fog plugs with a bit of the wiring loom still present so I can join the wires. Will hopefully get that done next week. It's already annoying me starting the car up to a beep that both fog lights aren't working!

    As for pictures, I couldn't get any so tomorrow I will when it's light! The SLR is charged and raring to go!

    Can't wait to see it in the light!

    Hi Indy,

    Are these not the parts below?

    Repair wire x 2 - part number 000 979 244E
    Fog plugs x 2 - part number for the pair 3D0 941 165A

    I've just ordered them from Audi on you recommendation to my Post for a tdi sport to S-Line conversion.

    Let us know as if there wrong & I'll cancel the order.

    Cheers mate

    I got those part numbers from Ads thread. They are the correct parts but the body shop were having difficulties connecting them so not sure if they damaged the existing wiring.

    They are definitely the right parts mate. The guys just couldn't get the existing wires to clip into the plug slots. Will get them sorted this week.

    Right then, here are the photos! Really pleased with how they came out. I've been doing a lot of research to try and improve my photography skills and gladly it's starting to pay off.

    I'm short of time today so I just took these photos at home. When I get my wheels I'll go to a better location.

    Some pictures of the front. The grill has been painted in body colour so it is a perfect match and flows well with the bumper. Notice how I've also had the number plate plinth painted. I got this idea from my Mum's A5. The gloss black emblem stands out well against the matt black grill slats.










    Some shots of the rear. The exhaust will be sorted this week. At the moment it's non-existent with the new diffuser. I really look how beefy the car looks from the back now.













    Hopefully won't be too long until the next mod! It's going back into the bodyshop this week to get the fog lights connected up and the little badge clip removed from the front grill.

    Thanks for looking

    Cheers. I didn't think an S3 grill would work but it has turned out much better than I thought. Thanks for offering to help with the facelift climate knobs. I'm looking to do this quite soon after finishing the exterior!

    Thanks mate

    I like the rear more than the front too at the moment. It just looks really beefy. As soon as the exhaust and MY11 lights go on it should look even better!

    I'm set on 18" BBS CK's in silver, which I'll then have re-furbed in dark anthracite after running them for a few months. Reason I'm not going for anthracite from the offset is that they're £300 more to buy than the silvers (not sure why) and they aren't dark enough, so would need re-painting anyway.

    its just a shame you cant have the sportback lights fitted to really finish off the back.

    I'm really liking the trim on the grill and nunber plate plinth matching the paintwork. it looks very sleek. personally i like the 4 rings to be chrome and stand out, but it still looks lovely.

    I know they are not a touch on Sportback lights but the MY11 ones will be on the car soon!

    I was set on chrome rings, but literally on the last day changed to black. So far not regretting it

    Cheers, I am hoping to bring the paintwork up properly in the next day or two with some Black Hole glaze!

    Exhaust is booked in for 8.30am Wednesday morning. Looking forward to it!

    The exhaust is going to make that rear look so mean. The sound will hopefully even better!! I'll be following suit very close behind with the exact same exhaust set up once I've seen yours!! Might try pop down to the garage on Wednesday to have a word with them and check your bad boy out!!!!

    Right, so this morning I had my backbox removed and exhaust tip fitted by Tony Banks Longlife Exhaust Centre in Leeds.

    I'm really pleased with the job, and would recommend this sort of exhaust to anyone with a TDI (can't comment on petrol). It cost me £80 and I provided the tips. The sound whilst in the car is barely different to factory, so it is very comfortable to drive, but if outside the car you can really hear the turbo and the car sounds aggressive under hard acceleration. I am tempted to say that the car also feels slightly more responsive, although this does not surprise me as I have read in a number of places that the backbox is very restrictive on the diesels.

    Obviously the one problem is that the tips do blacken very quickly, but a 30second buff with some metal polish each week will keep them looking good as new.




    After half a day's driving:




    Quick 30 second polish with Meguiars Metal Polysh brings them back upto scratch:




    Outstanding pipe work. Only one piece used:







    Also part way through a full detail of the car. Stripped all the wax that the bodyshop used so I can use my own glaze, sealant and wax.

    Even though it only came out of the bodyshop on Friday, and was fully machine polished, there's no fooling a clay bar!





    Also fitted the EM Tuning LED sidelights today (what a ballache) but don't have any pictures of that.


    That's all, for now.

    Nope.

    It's very hard to get sound out of a 2.0TDI. You don't really hear any difference at all unless you really floor it.

    All the sound is outside the car, very little -if anything- is heard from inside the car.
