    Bonnet, wing and headlight will cost about Ł200 max, bumpers are only Ł20-30 on ebay if needed.Might get lucky and get them in red and that would be a hell of a bargain for less than 4k!

    It will fit.
    The wings did not get changed until the 8P3, where the repeater lights got moved from the wings to wing mirrors .

    Come along way wait looks much better. Looks lovely and very tidy. To finish it off as said nice alloys, do you have any in mind? and to lower it. I'd also go for a spoiler if you got spare cash.

    Great job lad, looks spot on. Set of wheels would really set it off.
    What did the rebuild cost if you don't mind me asking? Looks like it could be a real bargain there.

    yeah was a real bargain mate.

    car cost Ł3,650

    Rebuild cost just under Ł1,400

    saving up some cash for a nice set of wheels.

    everyone has suggested bbs ch's

    can anyone else suggest a set that would set it off?

    absolute bargain, well done! the front end does look all out of alignment tho. definitely need to sort that. it ruins an otherwise tidy motor!

    i rather like the wheels you have in the photo, but perhaps a bit small.

    BBS CHs are by far and away my favourite aftermarket wheel - or Pescaras if you're looking for OEM. they look the same, but without "MOTORSPORT" written on them.

    needs lowering tho. i'd probably do that first

    PLANS: Dumbos | 8P3 S-Line Rear Bumper | OEM Parking Sensors

    looks great, and an absolute bargain. Good job on the spraying, was that your own handy work?

    hahaha moag, my handy work wouldnt leave it as tidy as it is now lol

    @ Sub39h yeah I must admitt that the alignment is out by a good bit and I'd need to get it in the garage and sort it out but my schedue is packed at the moment

    first thing would be lowering it a bit, not too low and then a good set of alloys. I would like to upgrade the head and tail lights to maybe 09 model. but not too sure yet. I'd also be looking to get a set of buckets but I'm thinking that my cash flow won't let me do that for a while yet. lol

    headlights is not an easy mod mate - you need an entire front end. you'd have been better off doing that when you were rebuidling the car the first time

    yeah that's true, at the time all that was on my mind was to do the single grill facelift. maybe I'll skip the headlight thing for now. lol

    No problem...I can see it my fault was looking on my phone lol! Looks sweet mate and makes such a difference the front end conversion is one of the best mods you can do. On alloys depends if your getting reps or genuine ones really. BBS CH win all day though. Next thing on my list if i was you, would be to lower it and get some nice alloys. Changes the appearance so much with some tidy alloys and slight lowering. Then i'd get MY09 or MY11 rears.7
    Keep up the good work

    S3 buckets cost ŁŁŁ and very rare go for some CS Sportsters or buy Lukes front seats

    umm im not too bothered about the ŁŁŁ i spend on rims aslong as they set the car off.

    I like a dishy rim, something like ..... borbet A's or Rotiforms, or the brabus rims, something along those lines but I also want to steer clear of it being a common rim, want an unique alloy for my car.

    I think maybe BBS CH's or LM's or my best bet?

    Ahh thats cool well genuine LM will be over Ł2,500 and they are rare. You could get some genuine CH for Ł1200 or CK. Or get reps for less than Ł650 or genuine Audi Speedlines AUDI 9X19 BBS SPLIT RIM ALLOYS 5X112 SET OF 5 SPEEDLINE on eBay (end time 17-Jan-11 17:54:46 GMT)
