    Looking very good, fair play!

    I sort of understand the moaners who say "why make it look like an S3 when it's not", but I don't necessarily agree.

    If PregnantnProud had created some Rieger'd up, fibreglassy, ground-scraping Max Powerist abortion you'd all be like

    OE S3 styling without badges is a classy move, and changing the colour was also brave (but not as brave as leaving it yellow would be)

    Nice work...now move that boot badge will ya

    2009 rear lights fitted...

    ...and chrome indicators. Took SEMs advice on that one!

    Just need to lower it next.

    Slow but steady son, slow but steady.

    Absolutely agree mate. I would love the S3 front bumper, rear valance and side skirts on mine, as I think the car looks so much better like that. Not that I want anyone to think it's an S3 and (like you) I certainly wouldn't badge it as something it's not!

    Awesome job on the car though, it's unique in a subtle way and I think it looks great. Loving the wheels. Looking forward to seeing the pics once you've lowered it.

    The Audi was finished yesterday morning at 10am and I got it today at 11am. I was blown off my feet to say the least! Somehow, the car looks lower... i'm not sure anymore about the 25mm drop...

    Right so i'll save the before and after pics and the 'artsy' photos for when ive got the rnse, and for when i actually find a location to do it.

    The led lights are work in progress.

    09 rear lights?

    Whats good audi sport?

    I've essentially finished this build thread now thought i'd update it one more time.

    I've fitted 35mm AP springs new front&rear lights and a 6000k HID kit.

    For some reason the front looks a little higher than the rear ;\

    i'm not sure the company that build the headlight. They may be called Depo... the HID kit are from hids4u.co.uk. They are great but they are giving me error messages now lol

    They are absoloutley fine. If you notice any scuffs on them its my poor driving. I've learnt the hard way. No they are excellent. Especially considering the real ones are 300 each, with discounts.

    erm im not sure because the cost of buying fitting and spraying the car came into one quote. But the parts were probably 1200, the respray may of been 2500. But i'm not sure.
