    Very nice especially the wheels. Never been a fan of those rims nor the S5's but seen a couple of A3's on here now with A/S5 rimmage and they look spot on. They seem to suit the 3 better than the 5 IMO.

    How are you finding the ride on the H&R?

    What's with the single DIN HU?

    Very nice m8, looks great! Gonna get S3 mirrors too? Did you paint those calipers yourself?

    BTW I'm also interested - what's with the single-din HU?

    To I'mRonBurgundy? :

    I don't understand your question ?? Sorry my english is not very good ...

    What do you mean by :

    How are you finding the ride on the H&R?

    You mean ,what are the sensations ??

    The single DIN HU is a DVD/GPS radioplayer .


    To n00bie:

    No S3 mirrors ...

    I stay like that .

    The next modification will be S3 grill but thats all.

    The calipers were painted to my Audi Garage.

    Thank you

    So,

    Compared to S-line ,i dont know because i change immediately and i don't try s-line setup
    But ,

    I'm very very happy because for me its very good ! Not to hard ,perfect !
    In my last A3 ,i was in Kw and i'm much more happy with h&R !
    KW is to hard for me.

    Where's the standard radio/head unit? Kinda looks like a Ford dashboard from the 80's!

    Like the wheels though!

    I did not think that the s-line grill was the same size as the S3 grill, I hope that I am wrong.

    Yes ,it is exactly the same I'm sure.

    Two friends of me try and it works

    In the previous version of A3 (before facelift),that does not work because the S3 grill was to short but with the facelift version,the S3 grill is exactly the same that the original S-line. I mean Size ...



    As you can see ... :
