    New to Audis, old to VAG - looking for mod suggestions!

    Hi all,
    I'm another newbie, so please don't bite!

    I've spent the last 20 years twiddling with air- and water-cooled Volkswagens of all shapes (to a reasonable customisation level) and now I've got myself an '08 Audi A3 (8PA) S-Line TDI, in phantom black with black Vienna leather interior and the 5-spoke 18" wheels. Otherwise its bog-standard - for now!

    Externally, I'm going down the lamin-x route with the black grille surround and possibly rear badge removal. Got a few queries though:

    1) Whats the best "reasonably priced" black grille surround that will accept the S-Line badge (ie decent finish, decent fit) - seen online prices from £50-150 which raised suspicions/concerns on quality

    2) I was sort of surprised at the lack of "niceties" like come-home lights etc that the SE models have. What are the top 5 lower-cost tweaks/tricks to add a few features (I have access to VAG-COM/VCDS). Dont mind trawling ebay etc for "bits" and will be going to a few VAG shows this summer anyhow.

    3) Whats the easiest way of powering a mini-usb tom-tom satnav mounted in the bottom right of windscreen without trailing a wire across the dash - fusebox nearby - any neat workarounds known? I'll be adding a parrot handsfree kit at some stage, so would be looking to wire this up at the same time

    Any other suggestions of "obvious" tweaks and mods appreciated!

    Cheers!

    Chris
