    My Project Car - Loads of pics

    This is how it started out as, a car with full service history etc, well maintained but was a tad dirty on pickup....







    Then took a long drive out to bradford one afternoon to pick up a set of these...



    Soon to be followed by a set of these off a bloke in preston, nice dude included everything except the adaptors, retaining rings were damaged but picked up a set from tps for about £20



    Put the car on JOM Blueline coilovers while it was stored at the garage, chose them because i have a set on my mk5 golf and
    they are comfortable and firm
    Wheels went on and so did the headlights....








    Picked up a set of aluminium pedals from TPS


    Car went into the bodyshop... the initial front bumper fit and found out the arches wont work! 700 odd for each arch!!








    Commisioned the shop to build be a set :D

    Bonnet filled ready for sanding















    v






    The arches filled and prep begins...







    The car rolls out of the bodyshop... the paints been blended into the doors



    The rear rs3 bumper and diffuser before the silver trim gets painted



    Now fitted along with the sideskirts ...


    Found a set of these badges on ebay - carbon fibre, again i know most the audi-police will squabble over them but hey they look good!



    after alot of fettling, front bumper fitted grille added, the mirror caps replaced and the car given a wash

    ^^ Could not be more AGREED!!

    if the a$$ seller would have sent my RS3, I would be on your way!

    But you put everything pretty fast on the page, you should make us more excited with a process of couple weeks

    Why did you change the HOOD mate? ( I'm getting a facelift right now, it has been 2 weeks and about to finish ) I asked because my var is going to be an RS3 within a year progress and I wondered if I need to change the hood again?

    Thanks a lot!

    GREAAAAAAT JOB!!!

    Haha i know how these forums work, and i know id get alot of stick doing an RS3 conversion mate, the cars complete so thought heck lets just put it all up and let everyone ask questions rather than bicker and argue about the doability of it

    For example the other thread where Ash put up a pic of my wing contour and everyone decided to mock it, stupid minded souls seeing it in person you'd be surprised

    And i didnt change the hood, check the post, i know i was a lil vague cause it was 3 in the morning lol, all we did was sand the hood down, fill a few stonechips and prepped it for respray

    The wings need to be blown out to fit the RS3 Bumper, i had the bodyshop flare the arches to match the profile of my wheels

    Nice job mate,I love it.However the rs3 badge is a bit too much,people will known its rs3 rep cause of the diesel sound lol. Also how much did you pay to get the seats retrimmed?

    i knew someone would say that :P Ash heard the car and he can vouch for it, when its moving along it sounds beastly due to the screamer in the exhaust, so going along or even on slight throttle it masks up the noise

    The badge maybe overkill but i like it, the steering wheel has the RS3 badge and so does the front grille and rear tailgate

    The seats alone cost 1200 but the trimmers took care of me and i had the car done for about 1700 all in, this includes door pannels and seats headlining and pillars etc

    Nice job mate.

    I actually really like the transformation and end result, even though it isn't the real deal!

    What do your side badges say, can't see them properly on the iPad.

    It says supercharged think the badges are of an RS5, they have the carbon inserts instead of the red

    Tempted to get one but too many RNSE related thefts about, plus i spent a pretty penny on the car, the gearknob i like! might go for a TT one eventually but the leather gearknob on it does the job well

    you dumbo, how do you take a BAD pic? it was a close up of the joining of the bumpers... the pic i took it how it looks close up! the pics in this thread are of the whole car so you dont see how the arch meets the bumper.
    maybe you should go and see it for yourself?

    Not too fussed, its a tdi, its reliable, good on fuel, cheap to insure, 30 quid a year road tax, not as if im a boy racer

    the speed limits 30 and it does that pretty well and smoothly


    And whats the issue with the seats? the diamond effect comes on the inside of the rs3 buckets as an extra -
    and i took inspiration from an aston dbs -


    I really dont get the WTF part, your issue is?

    I'd be embarrassed to drive a car with a badge on it which i knew wasn't real... However, it is an amazing looking car and theres no denying the quality of the transformation.

    TBF i have no shame lol its a tdi that looks like an RS3, if insurance and maintenance wasnt that expensive, whos to say i couldnt have just bought an RS3 on finance? its good for what it is and i appreciate your concern, and thankyou was a labour of love



    This is not directed to the quoted coment

    Aside everything people, i enjoy constructive criticism, maybe even ideas for the future when i may decide to change some stuff about, but if a person cant go out and put thier money where thier mouths are, then i really dont want to hear or see any bull**** about my car, most forum members spend time and money on thier pride and joy but theres the few trollers that just spam our build threads and say it cant be done or no dont do this, or even say that its not good enough!

    Real talk, people like them just about scrape enough to cover thier fuel costs and maybe change thier pads when they're due, dont be putting a man down that spends money adding mods to thier car

    Each man to thier own opinion, to some, a mod may seem tastefull, to others it may not, dont be an ass about it!

    I agree.. if I saw that at the lights and it was badged as what it actually is I would think to myself, "that's really nice, a lot of work went into that!"

    However, with the RS3 badges on it it would be very different and may even raise a giggle

    So are you declaring all the modifications to your insurers? RS3 insurance isn't that bad really so I bet it's not that far off anyhow.. if your declaring that is?

    No denying that you have put a lot of money and hard work into that!

    haha yeah all insured mate! buisness policy, all mods agreed with an arranged value for the car at any point it gets hit and thankyew!

    believe me insurance is a pig for my area, i rather save a few thousand pounds and sink them into the car, rather than never see it again lol

    i have a 1.9tdi golf mk5 gti rep
    and a focus ST in white with a custom exhaust and a pumabuild tune etc so yeah this is a posers car

    I think I like the seats. Look good, and importantly different.

    But....
    I'm still puzzled by the RS3 badges!

    I think the RS3 badges are fair enough, as that was the aim. Still not keen on a rep though

    But the supercharger badge? Give that one a miss.
