    Looks great! Personally I've never been a fan of making an a3 look like an s3 or rs3 but the front end looks good and the wheels suit it perfectly.

    Congrats amit. I think it's more of a challenge to keep a car standard than it is to modify these days! I like a car to be as close to standard as possible. :applaus:

    Thanks, I like it standard, I just added the few ICE's to make my journey more pleasurable. As standard it reaches the speed limit quick enough and I beat 90% of cars on the road when I feel like having fun so Stage 1 makes me think twice (although when I granny drive, might push the MPG up by a couple haha)

    Thanks again.

    Unless it is bad lighting, it the central lower part of the bumper still grey? Pet hate of mine when A3/S3 have the optics pack, black grills and black mirrors but negate the lower splitter.

    AFAIK on the facelift it is removeable too?

    Oh and S3 badge? Is it a 1.6TDI with the single exhaust?

    Great looking car, not knocking the style/colour/wheels/suspension but these little things annoy me.

    You are correct, the lower part of the bumper is grey and i like it that way :)
    S3 badge will go as soon as I come up with something to replace it with (i hate emblem trimming aswell ;) ), yes it is a 1.6 TDI, waiting for S3 rear to arrive and the mirror caps will be colour-coded to the wheels pretty soon :)

    Only way to roll ;) :wub:

    Few shots of my new addition. I really could do with some cooler locations to take pics. The single day of recent sunshine was an ideal time, however there was always people at the spots I wanted to use. Obviously they were basking in the glorious weather too.

    Anyway:

    The vents on the wings of the DD kit put me off but otherwise that looks mean, super wide and I love the twin oval exhausts

    That in my opinion is exactly how the RS3 should look from standard.

    The first pic of that DD Custom, the wing/arch/headlight looks like a VXR-8 Bathhurst... pretty mean. I'm not so keen on the wing vents, but the wider arches are cool. The rear valance is a copy of the new RS4/5 etc with the exhaust in the middle of the honey comb and above the line of the splitter... I don't like how they've done that (don't like it on the other RSs either). I like that they've done twin ovals though... an RS signature.

    The Mrs just bought this yesterday from Aberdeen Audi, she's glad to back in an Audi after a year in a Civic lol. 2.0TDI S-line 170 Quattro, Black Edition.. We only went out to the park with the kids and came back with this, nothing like a bit of impulse buying! Anyway good to have 2 Audis sitting in the drive again!

    Cheers

    ASC, I know that feeling of jumping from a Civic back into an Audi.. We have a current generation Honda Jazz and the difference is huge!

    One thing the Jazz trumps the Audi is the practicality of it though.. Huge boot size and seven cup holders. Can't stress how much I love the multiple cup holders :p
