BLACK 8l progress thread :)
(SORRY ABOUT PIC SIZES)hello girls n guys thouht id make my own thread seeing as im keeping the car. heres my 1.6 1998 a3 sport.heres all the progress in order .let me know what you think. there will be marmite in this thread so good and bad comments welcome ;) im happy with it :) :)
car when i first brought .had standard 18 rs4 replicas. badly kurbed and paint waas flaking. car had 9000 miles on it. nice smooth ride compared to my old xr2i :)
so first mod for me to do the window tints were 80% all round which cost me 130 from TTINTS in luton. very nice price with life time warranty!! unfortunatly havent got a pic of the car with the front windows blacked out as i got pulled the 3rd day having them then replaced then for the crappy 30% :( :(
followed by getting 4 cans of HAMMERITE smooth black spray paint and used 1 can each on the alloys which came out surprisingly well!
along with this i brought the JAMEX coilovers from ebay for 180pounds posted which i lowered to the lowest on rear and 35mm on front so it doesnt rub on ARB.
got some halford h7 bulb cool blue :) with single led side lights, also a slated grill sprayed in gloss black to match the stealth look.
but then i gto bored of the stealth look and ditched the wheels for a set of rotiform/gallardo replica alloys finished in a diamond cut face with silver inserts and 225/40/18 tyres with black side repeaters ;)
got centre caps stickers made with lamborghini bull and audi writing.
so thats the look at the moment. so now ive gone and put the old grill back on but painted the chrome surround black and left rings chrome ! looks much better!!! aldo got two sunstrips top and bottom! and somthing for you guys that u will NOT like DRLS! :P theses 18 LED ones come on as soon as the car starts and has a dim function for night time use as soon as side lights are turned on. and when engine is turned off they stay on for 8 seconds which is cool :)
alot of you would disagree but i liek them . im deciding on taking them off and replacing with the black units with them in the headlamps.but not yet :P
changed the audi badge for a smaller badge as the back was debadged but i prefer the audi signs ;)
today got my chrome mirror caps(dont wanna pay for s3 ones incase they get nicked :( so either way of they get nicked by sum twat at least it will be cheaper to replace). and cleaner number plates in standard font just the place where i got them from in white and yellow so it looks less mess ;)
but im getting bored now so ive ordered myself a AUDI TT ARB so im getting that fitted soon so i can lower it the lowest it can go without problems.
but im looking to sell the alloys and replace with maybe a set of audi r8 v10 replicas with polished face and black inserts. not every ones cup of tea but i really like them.this pic hasnt got the black inserts though.
lowering more once i get them (if i do) then sticking 12mm spacers on the rears only .tyres will be 215/35/18 so slight stretch ;).
got black indicators on order to as mine has a broken seal and a flyeyes kit would go down nicely on the headlamps :) will update with more pics soon :) :)
