    Looking SWEET, Fella! I just get a funny feeling that this is going to be a pretty epic build, judging on how long you've had the car (a few hours, lol!) and what you've achieved with it already. Happy days Alex, ENJOY!!! :wub: x

    I wouldn't bother with HID's, they'll give u nothing but trouble, re wiper motor issue.

    Also, aftermarket kits are an MOT fail in a few months.

    Get some decent halogen bulbs to put u on til u get ur xenons.

    Oh and, nice blank canvas u got there, I see u got the modding bug already lol

    This forum def gets u spending even more!

    Haha i've always had the modding bug looking at my old cars :p

    I'm undecided weather i want subtle tint or smoke tint on my rear lights? Smoke would be more black so matching the theme? But i dont want to get subtle and it just be a pointless thing really.

    Pressed plates are now ordered also :D

    Should look ok . Who knows ey!

    On the bulb front guys , My 'DRL'S ' Are pretty **** just a off white yellow colour , Same with my sidelights and headlights.. I've searched abit and everyone says something diffrent ... I've orded some 501 leds and some cabus plate lights but who knows if they will work ! lol

    Is it possible for someone to link me to the most popular ones for each one , Sidelight ,drl, dipped etc? And much needed numberplate

    I'm overwhelmed with audi information at the moment!

    Jesus you don't hang around mate. Fair play!

    What's the remap done for your insurance costs? I'm considering a remap in 6 months or so when I get bored of the power it's currently got to offer (at the moment though it's still a massive difference from my old car!)

    I'm a similar age to you at 21 so insurance is the first thing I have to consider before modding my car...

    Got any pics of those H7 bulbs in action? I got some Osram nightbreakers a few months back and they are crapola. They are bright enough but they are pretty yellow. I was going to order some Philips Diamond ones but if these are as good then it could save me £20.

    Thanks mate , where you getting the lights from?

    Urm eBay uk pressed legal plates , that's where mine are from 100% legal and you don't need to send documents off like dubmister!

    Thanks very much mate !
    Get some snaps up! I Obviously Want them to be bright in the daytime not just night lol.
    haha I love them !
    Yeah they need documents faxed through, the eBay guys are much easier to deal with !

    I'm sure theres a silver one not the S3 diffuser that goes straight on the a3's without the seperate bottom lip , I've seen a few at the sales with them .
