    New spoiler fitted

    hello everyone

    went to stafford audi to buy a s-line spoiler cheap, for some reason they were selling stock off on ebay.

    dropped it of at the body shop to get sprayed up and just got it fitted today

    i am very very pleased with it, makes such a difference.

    before

    after








    all i want to do now is remap it and tints

    im after some light tints, enough to see through the windows

    has anybody got a picture of a grey A3 with light tints or any tints??????

    any comments welcome

    The guy who bought my MY04 Dolphin Grey A3 Sport got the windows tinted. I think he said they were 30% or something like that.

    I should see him next week some time, so if you don't get a photo by then I can probably sort you out with one.

    I must say it really looks the part with the tints.

    Think thats the votex spoiler but there is not much diff, looks so much better

    Here is my akoya silver A3 with 35% tints, the way the picture is taken it makes them a lot darker, when you see in the flesh personally i think they look perfect. You can still see through the car slightly if you know what i mean. Ps the bonnet is not staying black

    that does look nice, i still think i will get slightly lighter tints

    i might be interested to covert my front to the facelift grill, how much did all of it cost you ?

    very sly matt.

    Never mentioned you were doing that (I hate you, you lucky *******)

    Looks sooooo good.


    Expecting my spoiler to be fitted next week.

    That looks much bigger than the one I have. Then mine was ordered from the s-line part no.

    Is it the votex?

    Photos my old Dolphin Grey A3 with tints as promised.





    As you can see from the above shots you can see through my side windows, but not the side windows of my old car. They are under the legal tinting limit whatever that is. Not bad for 170. After seeing both cars side by side with the sun shining (and 22 degrees!) I think I might be looking to get my own windows tinted.

    The S3 below also has the standard green tint. No real reason for this photo, other than the fact that I took it today too!
