    Yeah, it does date it, although you can have a 'temp' big grill mod for around £15, whilst you do other bits until you get your s line or s3 bumpers, bonnet, fogs etc..

    Nice car! love red cars! Agree about loosing the ABT badge. Light tints would look good too!

    Whatever you do to it, just enjoy the car!

    Haha dont blame you mate, i just need coilovers & get my bonnet sprayed for mine to be done. Not bothering with the interior, all i do is put my new steering wheel on & thats it. How long you had your car for? where you get your alloys done?

    thanks benskin07 not sure what i will be getting when the finance is payed off maybe a 2.0tdi s-line or a 2.0T s-line but an a3 obviously coz i miss having a fast car mines good on the juice but my god its slow mind u i did come from a 240bhp escort rs turbo so it will feel alot slower lol but on a better note i should be getting my windows tinted this week to go with the black theme a little more ive wanted them done 4 ages i did try myself and failed badly lol

    Your brushed alluminium door trims are letting your black/red theme down. You need to swap them with me for my Piano black ones! ;-)

    Also you thought about getting the back three windows tinted?

    Well what ever you want to do, could go Cardiff for some photos and then up by yours ways if you like. Ahh so you work in Cardiff where to? And what you work as if you dont mind me asking. Thats a good price for the back three windows! Cant complain with thatHaha car hada good clean then!!! Thats fair enough about your interior. I want to start on my interior but i think i'd rather keep the money as deposit on a new car in a few months. Bet you cant wait for the tints!! Will go well with the whole theme
