    I disagree, I think the grill looks great, and if there's one available that'll fit an S3 let me know. It's by far the best badge-less grille I've seen on any A3.

    Both cars look smart!

    That reminds me, how much would it cost to have a genuine S Line rear spoiler painted and fitted??

    "Poo-ears" looks sharp with the badgeless grille and RS6 rims.

    "Henry" looks very tidy, and whilst I'm not so sure about the black 'old style' RS6 rims on it, I like the clean badgeless finish. Shame about the Ring sticker as it is skewed, but then half the world wouldn't even know what it was, so not a massive issue!

    Nice photos though!

    I do like it, but I don't think I'd do it to my own car - I prefer the contrast with the silver rings on the black grill, but it's a good fresh look - I've not seen any other optic grills without the logo - most of them have just the black rings so top marks!

    Really good photos by the way and really liking the RS6 rims - really suit the car.

    Those are 2 very clean and somewhat individual cars! Very sweet photo's too. I usually dislike the look of the FK badgeless grill, but you got it to work on yours.

    Also loving the RS6 reps, wanted them for ages now! I frikkin' jealous now, lol! I think the old style black RS6's go well with the clean look silver car. They suit the pre-facelift styling IMO.

    What did you use to clean your cars? What wax??

    Nice pics lads!

    Piers, well done on the photoshoot, cars look amazing. the badgeless grill works well on your car, makes it look even mean! i like it! both, yours and your mates car go well together!

    good work lads!


    btw: just add a set of 09 facelift rear lights and it will look even better INMO???

    hahaha. some very good comments! cheers lads!
    yea my wheels are 19" RS6 reps..got them from -

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/19-Audi-New-RS...3%3A1|294%3A50

    very good qual Reps in my opinion.
    i was looking to get some H&R springs, but for the quattro it only lowers it like 10mm ontop of the s-line.. would it even be that noticeable?
    cheers again for all the comments, will pass them onto my mate and get him to join this forum!! considering he owns an A3! haha..

    Cheers for the link to the reps, I was going to get some 19" BBS sportline reps from that guys.... Seems to be the only one with the sportline reps around... Hos reps seem to be quality, and yours look spot on. If I buy them I'll definitely use that fella.

    Get some pics of your interior up mate, I'd like to see what the alpine looks like in there.

    I was going to get some of those sportline reps off him but he was struggling to get hold of them in 5x112 ET45. He told me I could order but it would be 12-14 weeks before they arived from china. I've been to his place and he showed me some in 5x100 he had in stock and they seemed very well finished.

    Hey Piers, some nice pics there and the cars look sweet!!

    Met your man Yenry in the petrol station today and the car looks mint in the flesh....was quite strange as another mint euro'd A3 pulled in as well, so it was like an impromptu Audi meet at the local Shell Petrol Station...lol.
