    Bro you need some OEM centre caps for them splits, got the part numbers handy if you want. Cars looking nice, lights work well with silver.

    Looks much better War. Car looks really good, a spoiler would be a nice finish to the rear end:icon_thumright:
    Any more plans? You going to any of the shows?



    p.s took some photos of the rear end on my car will upload them to my thread for you.

    Cheers mate, i think there great love the look of them on silver. yeah i know it needs one really, just waiting for one to pop up though! never find them cheap and i dont know of any scrappers local that do audis. yeah ive got some small things to put on soon but problem with audis is modding is so expensive, wanted a full oem satnav unit but thats £800 all in, full leather interior is expensive too, also wanted s3 brakes but the list can go on and on.

    I might go down to telford for UD and poss ed38 and prob end up at some other but duno yet mate

    Got some brakes but found out i need hubs off a 2.0tdi which is pooop! Shame as a love the look of them.

    But all that is up in the air as unsure anyway as don't even know what type I would need, as am sure I wold have to get ones that match up for the drive linkages and fit the strut size.

    There huge ! 345mm i think.

    I think you need S3 hubs mate, I have a set of S3 brakes I am fitting to my 2.0TDi so will have old TDi hubs, but I'm pretty sure you need S3 hubs as well

    Ohh do i lol sorry battery dead will charge it now and reply. Nope my S3 ones got stolen that why i was on the hunt for a new set.
    I dont see why not Scott on here got a 2.0tdi Black Edition he said it was a straight swap and didnt need new hubs.
    Thats the only reason i got my mate to fit my brakes to his car lol

    Found the thread warren, yes seems 2.0TDi hubs are just fine, so I'll have a set of S3 hubs up for sale as not worth taking off old ones then.

    Is your car not a 2.0 then Ash?

    Pm you price soon, well i put the 5mm on the back two bolts bolted up fine, then i felt the other two defo rounding the threads!, i stopped before i did to much damage, am doing it correct as messed with wheels for years, you could tell there wasn't a huge amount of thread holding them in too. am not saying your wrong bro just if i could put them on without longer bolts i would! let us know what you think

    Looking good Warren, spot on mate. Not fond of windows stickers but the car looks really nice.

    Did you spray over the chrome on your grill?
