Alright lads, is this shoot open to any other 8ps in the area?
so whens the facelift happening?
I've been on to him for a while to get it done, no joy lol...pussyo!:p
Well kind of gave up on doing a thread if im honest. Will just do another thread when the car complete as shouldnt be too long. As i now have a job yay:rockwoot: :happy: I've got a lot of parts just waiting to be fitted. Need to finishing gathering, radpack, intercooler and fwd gearbox.
Had a nightmare getting a brand new optic S3 grille. Audi said they wouldnt be able to get me one for 3-6weeks!!! Finally got one thanks for a member on here "JimmyJames", you are a life saver mate :wub: Went out of his way for me. So i owe you big time for this :thumbsup: Few photos will be uploaded once its back this week. But here a photo for now
And a photo from back in June before the new suspension and some paint work was done :happy: On the way back home from Bristol Krispy Kreme meet
That is some low static! You'll do well to get the front down that far to get it sitting level!
Ash are you going to convert the S3 optics to a mesh grill? like you had before..
With a notch it will be perfect and stop my driveshaft from taking a beating every now and then.
Yeah fella, RS6 grille wasnt a problem to get. Just the S3 one was proving quite difficult. Had a call off the garage to say the front bumper and grilles are all done. I can collect it tomorrow. Still waiting on a foglight grille but should be here tomorrow.
Good to hear your getting it back soon bro! Hit me up with the details on how the guys made the RS grill, need to get mine in to the body shop!
do you have to use another doner grill? say from a rs4/6
You would be best just buying an RS3 grille. There one on ebay RS3 8P front center grille chrome + black color for RS3 A3 S3 Audi style Europe | eBay
But yes to make the honeycomb grille you need your current grille and then a RS4/RS6/TTRS/RS5 grille what ever grille you want to use. But personally if i had an 8P3 id just buy the RS3 grille.
Whats your wheel & tyre spec up front Ash?
cheers Ash, i understand now, forgot your great looking car is a 8P2, therefore rs3 wont fit. hope you get the car back to where is was soon lad
And the tab already been smoothed out so that will help but if i do have any issues i'll get them sorted. I do want wider arches so this could make me do it quicker.
Lol, rears are fine I think, but I meant fronts. Clearly I didn't say that http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...s/banghead.gif
No camber to had up front!
Picked the car up yesterday. My mate didnt do the notch as he not done it before and didnt feel comfortable doing it.
So at least he was honest. Most likely taking it to Low Standards in Staffordshire a week saturday to get done. Really cant be arsed driving an 5 hour round trip:| But has to be done.
S3 skirts never got fitted so be back at my mates garage to do that but now going to wait till i have enough money to widen the arches. Do you think 25mm on the front arches will be that noticeable? This is how it currently sits. Need four wheel alignment but proving quite difficult to find any one down here who will do it:keule:
Excuse the photo took it on my bb.
The motors looking lovely mate! Glad you've got it back!
Looking good mate. Get some better pictures up though!
he has always banged on about it being expensive but so will archwork ;)
Bet your glad to see it back dude! Looks real well
Is the notch not something you could do yourself? Didnt think there was much work in it?
Hmm i've never done it or a weld and i dont have the tools or the space lol so will give it a miss. I might of found a guy only 20minutes minutes away in the next city that done a friends mk5 gti for £120. So hopefully he can do it for me.
Thanks lance :happy: :thumbsup:
:P pm me where your hunting for the damaged stuff i can show you the way ;) just bought myself a tidy new daily for me to work on so the s3 can change significantly again ;)
