    Lovely looking car mate, what a transformation. Any chances of an interior shot of the pedals?

    Looks awesome mate. Do you have a link to the grille?

    I'm debating whether or not to go for S3 front bumper, depends if I can get one or not mostly. Got the fogs. rear spoiler sorted and will have the rear end within the next week. May have an option to get some side skirts too.

    We will see, I've also got an Akoya silver car which is hard to get mods to match in my opinion when straying away from OEM colours....I actually think chrome parts suit it better.

    The new S3 grille you mean? It's a genuine 8P2 S3 black optics grille. Can be bought direct from Audi or from a supplier like TPS. Don't think they're available online

    And ye, definitely agree akoya looks best with chrome

    That looks special - almost convincing me S3 is the way to go!

    How much was the new grille?

    That looks awesome in Akoya Silver - Makes me want to go S3 now! I'm always a bit so so with the colour, sometimes I love it but in some lights I don't like it...this could cure it for me!

    How much was the new grill?

    Not cheap.... £290 from TPS (Trade Parts Specialists). Not sure if the chrome equivalent is the same price - I think if anything it may be a little cheaper!


    Here's a rough breakdown for the S3 front, sides and rear for anyone interested;

    - Front; The S3 bumper, black optics grille, fog surrounds and fog trays (trays that sit behind the fog surrounds) cost me £734 inc.VAT. By the time you have it fitted and sprayed you're looking at just over £1000

    - Sides; Buying (skirts x2, end caps x2, door blades x2, sill plates x2 and all the fittings) and fitting the S3 skirts will cost around £1000, though you can cut corners to save £££ by using the existing SLine door blades, but I wouldn't recommend it. It'll cost more if you have a Sport Back

    - Rear; The rear valance is cheap compared. I think you can buy it and have it fitted for around £250


    So all in you're looking at around £2500 to replicate the exterior of the S3, unless you source second hand parts.... Not cheap by any means

    Sorry to hi-jack but didn't want to start a new thread.

    The 8P3 rear S3 valance...does that fit on a 8P2 s-line bumper then? Roughly how much is it and do we have a part number?
