They are my favourite alloys you have there. The steering wheel is sweet too. Car looks great, nice and mean looking. Paint job looks awsome in the SLR's, bet you are a happy chappy, well done matey
Thumbs up for Nige too

For those who don't know, the rims match the seats
Lol really, why is that? Because it's a 3 door or is it that I would also need coilovers/ air ride?

You need lows to pull 20"s off mate, otherwise it'll look stupid, but thats your call I guess.
When are you putting your 8P2 parts in the for sale parts bin? Don't know what I'm after yet but I'm sure you'll have something of interested..
Car looks good.
Now an Audi driver wannabe.
N8 mate, just Wow. Looks so much better i'm happy you finally converted! Especially loving the S5 wheel. Food for thought for sure. Was worth the wait though looks Epic!

I'm Glade you finally gave in to the facelift N8 ....
The 8p2 is getting a little tried ...
Ain't really feeling the Purple RS6 Alloys .......But that's your theme of you car ...so can't expect nothing else but Purple.
Also you don't really see any AKOYA SILVER in 8p3....as I think they discounted the colour or something.
Also are those lamborghini brakes ? Because one pic had no logo's and the other it just magical appeared.
But other then that the car looks Great .....

You really shouldn't do these rush jobs Nath....if you'd taken your time and really done it properly it could have looked great...
You know i'm yanking your chain......the car looks epic Nath....great job.
How do the brakes feel now? Looks like an expensive option, but of everything my car is lacking, the bite of the front brakes is the worst part. I did ask Nigel about doing something, but haven't really chased it up since. What did you do with your old set up?
BTW. am very impressed with the work done, but can't cope with the colour of the wheels - each to his own!
You'll also need to explain the appeal of the car sitting on its bumper stops when at rest - I just don't understand whh that is done.
Excellent work all round!
Glad you like it Paul!
Ads, the brakes are MONSTEROUS, perfect pedal, I've not had any hairy moments yet, but I'm sure I will do once the hybrid is all singing all dancing. The R8 calipers were sold, as I already had the discs. Can sort you a setup if you need, just pm me with your needs and budget
Lol, pampers box. Standard issue DaveB material.
Loving the new front end...and Akoya
Can't wait to see your 8P3 to 8V1 conversion next year.
I have been always in love with the new facelift like this one. The LED looks awesome,you have done a great job mate,I wish I can do my like that as well )I feel like I want to buy a new car and upgrade it to this facelift version already )
did you have to change the front panel to fit the headlights??
That looks amazing. I want to facelift mine!

DAM! if theres ever a car someones put there stamp on is this, im not keen on this series but the way youve made it look is very very nice, can i ask what seats are they, i may have missed it on the way along reading.
still looks like a lot oof money shelled out, also i dont know weather i like your winter wheels slammed or the current ones.
have rs4 wheels my self and so hard to get it lower then it is due to light scrubbing on a certain round about as it has a bump half way round, is there lots of arch work for bags or to go very low?
Cheers guys, boost addict, what series? This is an audi forum
They are RS4 seats. Arches are standard, no modification necessary, just fitting the right wheels!
Also forgot to add, changed all the interior switches
Looking sweet as!!
I cant read, an i cant write. But thats ok! Cause im from the west country and i can drive a tractor!

Love the car N8, looks every bit like its rolled off a forecourt from Audi.
I noticed some of your center console is the full facelift - in terms of the climate control section etc.
Is this right? Have you managed to fit a facelift climate control panel to a pre-facelfit car? If so - How?
It all makes me want to facelift mine!
One word - LUSH!
