    Was Bored So Took Some Photo's

    Hi


    Just thought i'd post some photos up. Decided to take some photo's yesterday as i thought the car looked nice in the sun and i got bored waiting for my friend to come outside.
    Not done any mods since January got a few bits i need to add on which are just laying around my house.
    Items bought so far and need to be fitted. Still quite a bit i need to do but next few weeks lowering springs and tints But will start my own build thread once i'm closer to what i want it like.


    1. S3 Bumper & Black Grill (need to get a bonnet)

    2. S3 Style Gear Knob link: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=200343527899

    3. Leather Hand Break link http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&it em=200332277351

    4. A3 S-line Steering Wheel MFSW (without airbag!)


    Anyway here some photo's hopefully have some next week with the bumper and grill on! All comments welcome











    I love the way the colour looks once the sun hit's it and its not too dirty. Would of been a lot better if the car was lowered, had the bumper/grill & tints in two weeks So will start my own thread then!

    Thanks

    Ashley

    Ashley I am confused with your sig, do you have 2 A3s? If not whose is the silver one? How much are you planning to spend on springs? I would seriously save up for coilovers man, you won't regret it, get some spacers also. Then it'll look

    Lol sorry Nate should of explained. I sold the 2.0T I'm moving out & my insurance f*cked up my insurance. And wanted extra 1,000!
    So was either keep that and be really tight for money on the bills or sell it and keep my Grey A3 mod it and wait till my next birthday for an used S3 or new A3 So thought i'd rather do that and then in a year time be a really nice present from myself. So at one point yes i had both A3's for over a month.

    So the most of the money from the Silver A3 going towards a nice house or apartment think house as i want a garden ha
    On springs willing to spend 250 max. I'd rather keep the money for coilovers for the next car! Yeah i 100% want some spacers which one would you recommend nate?

    Thanks

    Looks nice and clean Ash, will look very nice once you get those mods on.
    Seems they did a good job painting the bumper etc. There are some coilovers, Jamex, I think... They are about 350 not bad and I might get some instead of the spings.

    Why don't you just save all your money for your next car then Ash?

    H&R are the best spacers really for quality and relability. Just bought some H&R PCD adapters from Damian at DPM for when I get my Porsche wheels

    Lava Grey is AMAZING when its polished and the sun hits it.

    It really pops as they say. Defo the best thing about my car.

    Looks nice mate

    Alright RS

    Thansk for that mate, wish it had the bumpers on, tints, spoiler and be lowered i'd be happy I love the colour Lava grey always nice when the sun out and in the night looks black!
    Yeah i've heard of them KAZ had them on his golf he said they were fine. And recommended them said cant go wrong with the price and quality. So i might aswell give them a try. How much will it cost for springs or coilovers to be fitted to my car? Few ?

    Thanks

    Because i need to move out...I live with my mum and sister house too small for us all and i need my own space. Insurance is still a stupid price as i'm 19. I'll start saving for a car September time. Hmm Porsche wheel what style?
    i'll have a speak with Damien as i want to get my springs off him aswell.
    How far will the spacers bring the alloys out? And you know howm uch the H&R ones cost?

    Thanks
