Just facelifted my 04 plate
Looking good fella well done
Really liking the improvement Lewy!
Cheers lads I'm loving it, had the bits lying around for months
RS4 grille too? Nicely done.
Naa it's not it's just a grill off eBay that fits the s-line bumper
Thought I'd pop some pics up of my A3. First car and I'm very happy with it up to now. It is as I bought it up to now, but ready to start with some small mods to get the ball rolling and see where I end up.
The images weren't great so I cropped and colour graded them plenty in PS to disguise it.
Few pictures of my 2004 Tdi
I can sort you out with some Earth lowering utensils if you like
Lol that is one of my next mods i have been told to get some Eibach Sportline 50/40mm Lowering Springs for £152... how much can you get them for?
Lowered and that's gonna look serious
The black grill looks seriously nice. Once it's lowered put some MY11 rear lights on, they'll look sweet.
Cheers guys im gettin MY11 lights tomoz then lowering is the next mod.
- just picked her up......
Am in love with her...........
I'm not surprised you're in love, Baza ..she's beautiful, it's all about the Speedlines, lol! xx
That grill is seriously sweet! Looks very very OEM, dude. Love it. xx
(Martay, this grille would look awesome on your S3, too!) xx
Very aware of that! Need to get the wheels on first, then start on the next mod. Still haven't put my Lamin-X on yet either (even though I bought them like 6 months ago)!
L80EWY, you have a linky for the grille? Is it straight swap for the 8P2 grille?
Thank Paula - am in love with it...........
Is that what the wheels are " speed lines " ........ ??
One happy dude........
Stunning looking car, your not far from me too.
You would have to trim it slightly to fit. A3 grilles are bigger than S3 ones.
Oh yeah, I keep forgetting there's a million complications to stop me getting a honeycomb grille!
Should be fun trying to keep those wheels clean
Aye cheers butler......
Am grafting down Hartlepool on Monday........ Lol
Somebody has to matey
Yep, they are indeed Speedlines, ..probably the most sought after and most loved OEM wheels there are!!! If my car had come with those fitted, I don't think I ever would have swapped, lol. xx
My spanking new BE S3 DSG to replace my sprint blue 09 plate s3 Manual
Beautiful new S3, Mjr! Enjoy the DSG xx
These are known as Speedlines, but they're the original BBS version. Speedline took over "OEM" production when BBS discontinued the wheel. Or maybe the other way around, I don't remember.
Omm, nom, NOM!!! Those are very sexy wheels, Martay. Gonna look seriously outta this world with your R8's behind them, lol!!! xx
Thanks for this mate. So whats the sizes (i.e. ET etc) to go for with 18s and 19s?
Thanks for these, your car looks awesome! Think I'm going towards CH's or CH-Rs. Not sure about black but really like the anthracite or smoked chrome looks. You don't have any pics of your with different colour CHs on do you?
reminds me of how mine used to look...
like the chrome fog surrounds that works well with the optics!
loving the chrome and black combination you have going on... the chrome slats on the grill with the black surround, chrome fogs and mirrors and even in the headlights... very mean looking
Heres the 3.2 Audi!!
And My Mk1 golf! Not had chance go out in the cab this year!
ET is more relevant compared to width than diameter (as in the wider the wheel, the more ET comes into play). I guess you have to watch all three, as wider wheels can sit further out if the diameter is smaller.
You want 8, 8.5 or 9" wide. Standard S3 wheels are 7.5" wide, ET56 and my 8.5"wide ET48 speedlines fit fine, and someone on here has 9" wide wheels with ET42 that only need the rear arch screw removed since the car is lowered so there's at least an idea of ranges for fitting. Inside has to clear the strut of the suspension, outside has to tuck under the arch. Use this site to play around with what can fit: Wheel Offset Calculator
