    Had the car 3 weeks now. Only had 1 full week tinkering as i,ve been away on Hols. Anyway ive added some RS mirror caps & a new RS grille. Bumper had to come off this time ( I managed to get the grilles done on the A3 & A4 without bumper off). Painted the crash bar whilst i was at it.
    End result is very good. All badges removed & new black rings fitted.

    Car looks great...... even Henry Hoover in the second picture is buzzing....... and before everyone starts freaking out, RS grille yes, RS badges no....... subtle changes never hurts the brand, enjoy you're new motor

    Agreed Robbie

    No RS badges, in fact no badges at all apart from the small stormtrooper one thats on its way, i think they do spoil the lines stuck everywhere

    Incidentally i have installed the blue painted halogens in the front fogs which leave a blue hue to the fogs, has been quite funny recently as our uniform consists of a blue polo shirt & blue softshell fleece with white writing on the chest.
    Quite a few have of late looked in their mirror & slammed on if they have been exceeding the limit.

    Made me chuckle
