    Thumbs up

    Your car looks stunning. Much respect to you & your helpers for doing all the facelift work.
    You must be very pleased with the outcome.

    I was wondering where you had disappeared to ash!

    Strong work as always and fair play for doing the conversion with your own hands! Looks absolutely stunning. RS grill looks legit!

    Your car is looking juicy mate. Hopefully I'll see it in the flesh soon.

    PS: You'll have to drive around a bit slower than at warp speed now so people can see it! (another private joke)

    Good work mate, looks top notch.

    What have you done with your bonnet, and any other bits needed for a 8p1 to 8p2 conversion?

    Thanks

    Looks spot on mate. Them foreign lorry drivers have got a lot to answer for. Looks like a completely different car, but I suppose half of it is.

    I like it! But I think the grille is too silver for me. I would have it black.
    Still, good work.

    Car looks stunning mate - just goes to show what can be made out of a bad situation!

    How do the wheels run? Much rubbing? Been looking at these myself but wasn't sure how much poke there would be on the ET33

    The car does look amazing although i think that some nice deep dish alloys may look better.

    I do like the alloys you have mind just think it would look more aggressive

    Both good choices if you were to get them. Also like the BBS-LM;s but maybe a little over done nowadays.

    You could get reps for alot cheaper but thats if you didnt mind them not being Genuine.

    Haha i'm sure i said that in my post

    Yup, really like the Super RS. You thought about 3SDMS? Maybe not deep dish mainly but can be very concave!

    really wanted my alloys with more concave like the A5s have



    but cant get them on the A3 with the right width and offset...

    i honestly fell in love with my alloys after seeing lots of pics of them on sportbacks making it look like a baby RS6!

    They look good on the car, colour suits it well too. You could get away with just the rears being more concave if you could find a pair...

    Bloody Hell Ash! That looks amazing.

    I was inactive for a year, but I have missed a lot! I have caught up with everything on your blog. But this conversion had to be applauded so here I am lol! The car looks stunning.

    You have gone for the best alloys for the sportback imo.

    Well done mate!!!! I love it!
