    Firstly we need to know what colour and spec etc. it'd be ideal if you could post some pics up, then we'll be glad to help you spend some cash.

    Depends on what you want really, and what your budget is. You could start with little cosmetic touches like painting your calipers, maybe changing the colour of your mirrors. Or you could change your wheels and go lower etc. your options are endless really, depending on your budget.

    you wont need dampers if you get coilovers as thee are a damper/spring unit bit like what on the front.
    here is what they look like to give you an idea of what i mean



    most are adjustable so can lower the ride hight too and stiffness

    Have a look in the Classified section on the forum or there are site sponsors at the bottom of the main forum page that can help you out with advise, prices etc.

    This is a cheaper way to get your lows if you're on a budget.AUDI A3 (8P) 1.6 TDI, 1.8 TFSI, 1.9 TDI, 2.0 FSI, 2.0 TFSI, 2.0 TDI Sportline E20-15-007-02-22 Only 144.41. Have a look through the forum sponsor, they normally have discounts for members. There's also a how to post pictures thread which might help if you haven't seen it already.

    You can also check this thread out, My Mauritious Blue S-Line Conversion. Not sure if it's the same colour as yours, but certainly worth a read anyway. You could spend hours on the 8p section reading through build threads, but there's certainly shed loads of inspiration to be found in there.
