    Good work mate!

    Seen a few conversions now and they do look good.

    However, you seem to be missing some side indicators!:jump:

    Cheers mate.

    There's ways and means of getting round no side reps at the mot (speak to them nicely)

    Was a total head ache to do, required new radiator frame, bumper support altered, the new wings had to be altered (just as luck would have it I'm a blacksmith/welder) to make them fit the old type inner wings at the top, I'm told Audi changed the chassis with the new models in order to fit the new engines?

    I'm not sure if the xenons would go on my car with the wiring mate would they? I've got a few plans, just need to build cash back up first. Yeah I came 2nd at ud mate.

    my a3 is a 53reg, want to go for the later front end, 09 might be a lot of work, is it any easyer with the 06-08 front end?
