I know it's just the light/pic but your rear lenses looked slightly smoked in the first side-on shot. Looks good especially with the Ibis, reminds me of the old MKII Golf GTI 16v rear light clusters.

Wow, what a difference the spacers make! Both cars look fantastic. Has it improved the handling? Even with just 10mm spacing that's gonna be a 20mm extension in track which seems a lot.
I can't say I've driven the car in anger as of yet to notice a difference, but hoping to get it back on track soon.
I can say that the 10mm has not caused any problems around the rubbish roads and speed humps in London, no embarassing rubbing on the inner arch etc.
Some of the other guys that have had them on for longer may be able to shed more light...
are we talking pushing the wheel out a whole 1cm here?? #45 comments on a cm??
.... 10 seconds you say... I thought this was a cheap day!
I'm glad you worked that out!
jamie, just wondering are you anywhere near e&c?
I saw a blue S3 waiting at the lights near the roundabouts a couple nights ago.
World's Fastest S3 Driver - racing old people in toyota camries since 1997 with a 97.6% winning rate.
Not me mate - I'm over west london way
Driving a bit hard today and got a chirp from under the rear wheel arch
Guess that settles that
Loving your new sig L6ON!
I'll need a 42" monitor for the next one in August
Look at the reflection in Ali's paint work, and thats after 1000+miles. I think he uses Jeffs acrylic which is supposed to be the dogs on Sprint paint.
Last weekends activities!

Looks nice Leon
Thinking of going for 10s front and 15s rear, they make the car look just right for my liking.

Be good to catch up and have a chat about those springs!?
Im away actually that weekend, will be around on the monday though if thats any good?? Not in a massive rush to get the coilovers at the moment as I have just spent a fortune on a new clutch etc..
To keep on topic the car looks perfect with the spacers, all you need now is a set of H&R's ; )

The H&R's will come..... hopefully!!! Then the car will look spot on!
Wishing you luck at inters - hoping the S3 has a good stab at the RS4 and 911 C4S
