    Dude..Please don't put that Nurburgring sticker on. It will add no credibility to your car whatsoever and will only cheapen it.

    I have to agree with with tku, the 'ring stickers are not a good look at all these days, up there with under car neon lights.

    Commendable job you're doing on the rest of the car though mate!

    Dude..I wasn't giving you a choice. REMOVE IT! ..Yes stickers can be removed..however making the wrong decision with them can cause you psychological pain...Look mate, I'm only teasing now, it's your choice..but I'm pretty sure sure sooner or later the majority of people will be telling you not to have it on. Most things decisions are your own personal preference..But the mis-use of the 'ring' sticker. Not impressed. All that hard work on your car and you slap that thing on. LoL.

    Fraid I agree, the 'ring' sticker is really only for guys who have actually done it! Bit like a club I know but you have to do it to earn it!

    But project looks good. Good luck.

    They won't... you will need to replace the bulbs.

    Also they are a ***** to wire up in the '08 models because the DRL's are the fog lights and not the city lights. That is what these things are designed to draw power from. If your DRLs are fogs than you will need to hardwire them in.

    Oh man your ride height is guna be WAY better than mine. mine actually is completely incorrect. I won't go into why unless you really wanna know. And your doing things properly with the spacers n all. I wanted those, not sure why I didnt get em. Probably cause I'm trying not to get addicted to mods. K I wont spy on your car but its guna look flipping tasty, What front grill did you go for? blackout? your a3's guna look like a black edition if so!

    With the 'ring sticker now I wanted one too for after i go on the N ring. sucks my a3 will be considered chavvy if i put it on so i may not, or I may get a real small one.

    However i'm glad MOST of the people on this forum can give an opinion in a nice way instead of saying something is outright **** like some other people in other threads on here.
