    My S3_New Pics

    Hi, been doing a few bits to the car lately and gave it a good clean today so thought I would post some pics.

    Car has had fitted, a milltek cat back, h&r springs, RNSe, some new mats (girlfriend got chewing gum on the originals!) and generally plenty of wax!!

    Hope you like the pics, first some while cleaning;





    Then some when finished;













    RNSE (many thanks to Lea - 1wheelonly for coding)



    And finally mats




    Car is screaming out for spacers, especially now its lowered but will need to sell the old stereo first (link in classifieds - http://audi-sport.net/classifieds/sh...ng-bits&cat=11) to raise some funds!

    Hi, the number plates are not legal I but have had them on for a few years between 2 cars and as of yet had no trouble, I have a spare set in the boot for MOT.
    Can't remember where I had them from as they were on my TT before hand, somewhere online, sorry. If I remeber will post a link.

    Yeah is the RNSe with the chrome buttons, am looking at retrofitting a few bits (cruise, TPMS, cup holder, ashtray delete) and really want some spacers as I remember how much of a difference they made on my TT but have spent quite a lot of money lately with these mods along with 4 new tyres and service! Trying to save some money to move house (see for sale sign in photos!)

    Here is a pic of my old TT too.

    Hi Lea, cheers and thanks again for the coding, may have to give you a ring when I've picked up a few more bits!

    Paul, they were off ebay, thought I may as well try them as they were quite cheap (about 30), they are not the best quality but are not too bad, will do for now.

    Think they were from here,

    http://www.german-number-plates.com/platemaker/

    This is where it leads if you search for craigs plates and that seems to ring a bell. Was quite a good swift service as far as I remember. Think the surrounds were from a different place though.

    Me too!

    Will look at getting some of the facelift lights but it will definately have to wait.

    Spacers are next priority.

    Re: My S3_New Pics

    Anybody know what the best width would be for spacers front and rear? Want to push out as far as possible with no rubbing, tyres are bridgestones as original but seem to have massive rim protectors!
