Loved every minute of reading that.
has it been lowered yet??? New pics???
Great work, well done!
Not bad at all mate, very good write up. Car has come up nicely
thx all! just a few minor mods left before its complete:thumbsup:
Looking very good, fair play!
I sort of understand the moaners who say "why make it look like an S3 when it's not", but I don't necessarily agree.
If PregnantnProud had created some Rieger'd up, fibreglassy, ground-scraping Max Powerist abortion you'd all be like
OE S3 styling without badges is a classy move, and changing the colour was also brave (but not as brave as leaving it yellow would be)
Nice work...now move that boot badge will ya
Fantastic job done there, it looks the business, why did it end up white and not suzuka grey?
Pretty sure Rich said it was sprayed Suzuka Grey but just looks Ibis White in the photos
Lol yeah back in my day Grey was actually Grey...
Had to google the colour:
I understand now
...and chrome indicators. Took SEMs advice on that one!
Just need to lower it next.
Slow but steady son, slow but steady.
Looking Good Mate....
Lovely mate....Have the exact same plans for mine bar the headlights and wheels. Altho mines will be staying toucan yellow.
How much would you say its cost you all in so far? if you dont mind me asking.
Nice job, how come you haven't answered how much it cost you?
I'd like to know please.
Absolutely agree mate. I would love the S3 front bumper, rear valance and side skirts on mine, as I think the car looks so much better like that. Not that I want anyone to think it's an S3 and (like you) I certainly wouldn't badge it as something it's not!
Awesome job on the car though, it's unique in a subtle way and I think it looks great. Loving the wheels. Looking forward to seeing the pics once you've lowered it.
Looks fantastic, great conversion so far!
I got my wooden flooring in Brooks Bros!
lookin good sir
Whats good audi sport?
I've essentially finished this build thread now thought i'd update it one more time.
I've fitted 35mm AP springs new front&rear lights and a 6000k HID kit.
For some reason the front looks a little higher than the rear ;\
Thats ******* sick!
How did finding the parts andfull respray cost
Springs need time to settle, but it does look over high!
what make of headlights did you go for & the lighting kit make too? Looking nice indeed.
yea whats with the back settling before the front?
How are the wheels coping? i'm looking at those and RS4 reps, caling at Sorted very soon as they seem to be very cheap (don't want cheap if it means poor quality though)
i'm not sure the company that build the headlight. They may be called Depo... the HID kit are from hids4u.co.uk. They are great but they are giving me error messages now lol
They are absoloutley fine. If you notice any scuffs on them its my poor driving. I've learnt the hard way. No they are excellent. Especially considering the real ones are £300 each, with discounts.
DOH! I hope they are ok for your wiper motor! I followed suit on the front grill:
good transformation, looks £££!
So what engine hides under the bonnet of your pseudo S3 ?
Nothings settled of yet, will take another 1000 miles before its sat how its gonna sit, if u get me...
Lot of work, but what a result! LOOOOOOOOOVLY. Big thumbs up from me, I'm also sick with envy....
Great work on the re-spray, car looks great.
Oh i see. Well i hope so its got a strange ride height atm!
Lol a 2.0 fsi petrol. Fast enough for me atm!
Yeah looks good! You felt like i felt about the s3 badge huh? Thought i was gona snap something removing that
erm im not sure because the cost of buying fitting and spraying the car came into one quote. But the parts were probably £1200, the respray may of been £2500. But i'm not sure.
SOrry to dig up old thread but what headlight bulb was used in this, also is this a bi-xenon headlamp?
Just read this thread.. and I have to say ! Awesome car, much jealous!
Any problems with the Wiper motor and HID's as I have herd bad things (making me think twice about getting them unfortunately)
sorry but where can i source an A3 badge or FSI badge for the grill?
halfords lol! Easy mod that one. The headlights are h9. and yes there are wiper motor problems. i'm addressing those issues as we speak.
You manage to sort out the Wiper motor issues?
Just been reading you Thread, well done she looks great, i,m sure your very pleased with the results.Must of cost a fortune.
i understand that you mean about how the colours vary in different light and viewing angles, my A3 is also suzuka Gray and i pften get comments as to what colour it is - even my neighbours comment on how it seems to change.
enjoy your new call, well done mate
This needs to be updated with the new grille mod you've done. OEM+!
need help please cant find the lights anywhere i have spent hours on the net looking Cheers
