    Been busy this weekend! Any comments welcome :)

    Ps. Please ignore the damage on the rear quarter - someone hit my car and drove off :banghead: Its getting fixed at the end of the month when it goes in for the roof rails, getting my reiger bumper fitted and a full respray at the same time :icon_thumright:

    Half way through fitting facelift rears. Got them from Audi with bulb holders and bulbs included for just under £60 each which is quite reasonable i think!

    Looks good. Watch the kerbs with those wheels though! I had the 18" version of those wheels on my A4 (actually I have 1 of them on my S3 just now due to a puncture) and they are very easily kerbed.

    I reckon a pair of 10mm spacers on the rear would help stance your wheels out more, looks good though. :cool:

    Have you fitted facelift front lights too or was your car part facelift?
