    New alloys

    ok so they are only rs6 reps but it makes a change from the sport's

    i haven't messed with the ride height yet but im after some s-line springs just to give it that standard s-line look










    i would like to spray the alloys either a darker silver or gunmetal grey, haven't decided yet

    further mods
    - lower on s-line springs
    - spray alloys
    - black headlining
    -smoked side repeaters
    -laminx headlights and fogs

    i was also thinking about sraying the chrome strip black along with the audi badges but i would need to see it done first

    any comments welcome

    cheers

    Looks awesome matey - why dont you just get some eibach springs - i cant remember the exact size but they will sit slightly lower than S-line and more softer...around 40mm should be about right - My Slines hard lol

    CKH has some on his - they were Mikes old ones - sat perfectly! I find my S-Line a bit high tbh so may get some weitec coilies or KW if i can stretch to it :P

    But looks really good mate - should look even better with the mods to come!!
    Audi A3 S-Line DSG - sold
    Golf Mk4 Autograph - sold
    Currently Vtec'in around in an Accord Type R :P

    For Sale: ST3 Remap Console - PM Me :P
    Vagcom'd too

    I think yours looks great if its the standard sport suspension. I was worried mines gonna look like an All Road when I put the 18s on....

    Thanks mate. It looks good.
    Why not go for some Eibach springs instead of the Sline springs?

    It seems people on here with Slines dont rate the suspension too much, and you'll prob be able to get Eibachs cheaper and quicker!

    I think the Eibach Pro springs would be what your looking for interms of drop. Im gonna aim for the Eibach Sports.
