    Looks pretty good to me. Is there much difference between S3 and RS3 skirts?

    Awesome work dude! And don't worry about RS3 badges, your car deserves them! Only thing I don't like are the wheels, put on rotors and you'll be a spot on!

    You've done such a good job with it man, i like it! I understand why you have the RS3 badges as you wanted a rep, not something i would have done, but still i know where you're coming from so that's cool.

    But just 1 thing, remove the supercharged badges as the RS3 doesn't come charged and doesn't have those badges.

    Good bloody work though!

    ive seen alot of rubbish out there.
    mate, i wont slag you off but this
    has to be a very good attempt.
    just make sure you dont park the
    car where bits get lifted by those
    tea-leafs thinking its an rs3.
    my score= 8/10

    Lots of work resulting in a very nice looking car! innovative fix for the arches, it's a beauty.

    But the wheels & supercharger badges are the only thing not to my liking ...as it's supposed to be a rep.

    WOW! That's really a head tuner, I'm considering buying a S-line 170 and do the same sort of conversion, my budget for the conversion is around 2k, but not entirly sure if that would last till the very end... considering I live in London and costs is often twice as much!?!

    Really liked your conversion, and honestly I'll give a score 8.5/10

    I personally don't like black, but liked this one, I would rather gone for dolphin grey, but that's fine... as long as you love it it's all that matters...

    To be honest I would have spent the money on a more speedy car rather than 105 BHP, something like S-line 170...
    Apart from that awesome job done!

    They did some good work on the wings, its hard to get the lines properly & add bulk as such, but looks good, the wheels do not suit it at all imho, kinda ruins the look & when I look at the pics it stands out like a sore thumb everytime, seat stitching isnt to my taste, but you cant deny it looks like good work bodywise, so I cant knock that, I think with some better wheel design it would look a damn sight better, so, well done.

    Cheers mate i prefer the look of the interior, once you see it in person you'd change your mind but its all down to our own tastes

    the wheels were something different, the car has changed owners but il let you know if he decides to change the alloys and will put up pics

    and yep the bodywork and arches were a pig but they came out good

    Car has changed owners now.... But dont worry il update any new pictures or updates whenever i can....


    And those who ask the price? Lol i wont disclose how much i spent but lets just say that they were almost all ordered from AUDI/TPS brand new and the Project Kahn Wheels were very expensive lol, but at the end of the day the car looks good, turns heads and its a great daily driver =)

    I think it was a brilliant job, done very well.

    I agree. I like the look of an RS3 but I'm quite happy with tdi running costs

    I'd do the same conversion if I had the dosh.....and skills!

    it wont fit coz the sportback bumper is different from the 3 door.
    the diffusers are not interchangable.
