    Re: New member 220bhp A3 owner

    nah the rear basically is on the floor as the numberplate is under the rear bumper now and with the 6 inch exhaust looks absolutley amazin (didnt like the exhaust at 1st but its really grown on me)

    Welcome [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif[/img] nice car

    I dont have a clue about if its possible to swap lights on a3`s but if you can i'd make one of the next mods updated headlights- would finish off the front perfectly. and also clear side indicators and maybe facelift rear ones [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: New member 220bhp A3 owner

    I like very much [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I wanted that lower front bumper. but the insurance compay wouldn't let me when some ran into the front of mine.

    Do you know the name of colour of your car? As it looks very much like mine, but mine is a one off life style colour.

    What's the difference? As I'm thinking of doing a full RS4 body conversion on my B5 S4 Sedan.

    Cool nice one.

    Yeah I was going to say about the exhaust. Not the nicest.

    Yeah if you are going on Sunday let me know it would be nice to see the two cars together [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Out of interest how much are you paying on insurance? As I am only 21 and I am paying 1600 FC LOL

    Also how are you finding the car?

    Ah right I am with Admiral (Same as Elephant).

    So how much extra did they charge for the mods? As Admiral wanted 200 extra for alloys and suspension.
