    Car is looking good mate! how do you find the 17s with that it being low? I have the same alloys and didnt want to lower it until i get the 19s on.

    also i see you have some eyebrows on your headlights.

    Looking stealthy! Nice.

    What % tints do you have on the side front and back? In the process of redoing mine. Thanks.

    Thanks!

    The diameter 17s vs 19s is almost the same so its not a problem :) 17s has 225/45 and 19s got 225/35.

    Got some eyebrows but i will remove them before the summer comes. :) Had them for 8months now, tired of them aready.

    so you dont find that you are scraping things like pavements on the 17s while the car is dropped? i have the same on my 17s (225/45) but i find that i already touch on some high pavements with the cupra splitter

    Lewy man, that is perfection! I've probably asked this before, but what size are the rims and what tyre size are you running? Drop etc?

    Thanks

    Just one from a friend's gtg.

    I recently tinted the tail lights with the lightest shade of lamin-x tint, for that cherry red look.

    Nice, new alloys looking mean with the black s3. Rs3 grille would look really mean and nice if you like that stealth look.

    I’m about to have the roofs centre wrapped in gloss blacktogether with the rear spoiler, including the front & rear lower valances
    (currently silvery grey) Ifeel that’ll finish the car off nicely!

    What’s your thoughts??

    Cheers,

    i think it's better without roof wrap. just do front and back lower valance and maybe wing mirrors.

    Wrap the roof without spoiler or nothing.
    Do the wheels graphite gray and also remove the front black grill with standard one!
    My opinion,The black optics do not suit on orange s3 cuz it makes the car dead!
    Here is mine and i'm 99% sure that the wheels are gonna be graphite grey like the front and rear valance very soon!

    Ive had it 8 months now, and she's still standard. I've got plans but not the cash. So keeping her clean and shiny will have to do for now.

    If you want an RS3 grill you'll have to do another facelift to 8P3, or get an RS4/6 grill and chop it to fit your grill surround. Involves plastic welding, and doesn't sound easy. There are also aftermarket ones, but the honeycomb is usually smaller, and doesn't quite look right.
