Kudos! Awesome retrofit!
There walks a real man who says what he likes and likes what he bloody well says (in a yorkshire accent)
If it was me doing this mod, its at this stage I would've had a sinking feeling in my stomach and said....
"Hmmmm... maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all".
lol iv skipped the old bumper and thanks
at the time i didnt think of the worse i thort of the good
yea took the car for a good test drive no rattling or creaking or draft coming when doing high speed.
noe wasnt a strght fit, was alot of cutting involed to get it to fit right.
thanks Ash, yea will get interior pics up once when i get the cluster sorted, will post more pics of the RS3
yea thats true always a better feeling when you done something yourself .
trust me the feelings i had wasnt good, but at the end it got there and it was well worth it
You know my thoughts after various discussions , I always respect this kind of passion & work going into these things, great, fantastic job, but lose the wheels & the mirrors in black are nice, but definitely doesnt work with the brushed grill fella, you need both in the same colour imho.
thanks Nige, yea Nigel those 2 things are on top of the list, wheels, orig alu mirrors (got the driver side just on the hunt for the pass) and lowring it, i may go for alu roof bars but not sure about them atm.
Damn Amar!!!!!! I wasn't thinking you'd cut your car in half when you said watch what I've done to mine in the pm
I don't think anyone on ASN will ever pull of a mod the EPIC! I mean that too... I've seen some lovely cars on here but in terms of sheer EPIC-NESS you've got to be way out front....
And I was worried when they were doing my 2010 conversion, loooool
Great work bro
edit> Def black mirrors grill and new anthracite rims ftw!
well done mate cracking job i love the pan am roof but nothing is worth that much effort imo. some of those pics made me want to cry. but seriously well bloody done
amar... just had an idea... get a 2010 front conversion
i am deleting my sunroof and you are putting an open sky roof everyone's taste is different but in the end you made a very good job.
keep up the good work mate :icon_thumright:
might have been easier to make the car a convertable!
I had 2 thoughts of my own - retro mag ride (never been done AFAIK - a new toy but as Nigel says, is it worth it??) or even mooted a C30 rotex supercharger - no lag, mmmmm
after this though, whats the point LOL
will be honest, iv never really fancied the 2010 front, maybe lata but its douts,
get in there mate, i wouldnt mind doin it agen yours is a 3door?..
sure i seen another panoramic roof for sale on ebay a while ago.. any1 intersted? il source it out
A3 SPORTBACK will never look right in a convertible, but am more then happy to try it out on your car Ewan?
Thats mental dude! fair play for getting it done tho, I agree with Ads, mod of the year imo! Take the crazy to the next level, do it on a 3dr lol!
good point, forgot its a sportsback LOL
Any progress my Friend ?
big enough sig lingy lmao
lol Fran .i cant seem to resize it ?
you can do it on photo bucket , once you have uploaded the photo click on it , then hover on the photo there should be a few things up in the left hand top corner saying edit/resize etc... just click on edit and go nuts on there lol
Nuts!! Good effort mate!!!
Amazing upgrade, you must be very pleased with the outcome and overall look of your sportback.
Reminds me of my old sportback with open sky and roof rails, also in silver. Which has now gone;
nope not yet tbh, got my new 19" ttrs reps, sportline 50/40 and my RS6 grill just no time to fit them atm and it to cold slowly getting there
thanks mate, have you got any pics?
here's a couple of links from a few years back, enjoy.
Jesus H Christ you've got some balls to take a grinder to your car and mod it soo heavily!!!
heres a quick update on my car rs3 reps, not sure about the colour on them,
still need to change the mirrors, and put on the rear audi bagde. iv got my 50/40 springs but not sure on lowring the car now, but i will be fitting my rs6 grill when the weather gets better
Liking that look mate.
before you say Nige the mirrors are getting changed lol.. you guys rekon i should get chrome roof rails?
Top work, your roof conversion for me was the most amazing mod of 2011, and with the TTRS rims it's looking sweet.
Can't make up my mind whether chrome roof rails to go with chrome grille, or black grille and stick with the rails you have.
TBH Amar, I think the black grill surround would finish it of perfectly tbh, leave mirrors as is, also if you keep it blacked up as such, then keep roof bars as is.
If you keep grill, then chrome bars with alum covers.
Looks Sick as it is bro like nigel says get a black grill surround and keep the mirrors the same colour all fits in with the open sky
Looking good bro. Did you get a chance to do my favour?
bro do what i said to you on BBM about the grill! im telling you it will look epic!
oh and if you dont use the springs then send them my way
thanks Warren glad you like the work.. am not sure what to do chrome/silver or gloss black, iv got silver on the rs3 diffuser/spoiler an i like that dont want to change them to black.
hmmm... wich one do i chose?
thanks bro.. sorry what was the favour agen sorry been busy ..
yeap read your bbm, hmm il let you kno about springs
Rear RS3 diffuser pics
I don't know...but the RS3 rep alloys look out of place on a 8p2 . "my point of view" What's needed is a 8p3 conversion at the front if u ask me. other then that it's one of the most unique modded car on asn with the skyline feature.
WOW i only just seen this thread. Hats off to you Amar you are one brave lad. Finished results looks awesome. well done mate.
I've got to agree with this. To the untrained eye it probably looks fine, but because I only see these wheels on 8P3 S3s and RS3s it looks too "thrown together" when on an 8P2.
Don't get me wrong, they don't look nasty, but they just don't match the rest of the car, imo.
Damn I'm a hypocrite! My car has an 8P2 front, an 8P3 rear, and A5 wheels!
Spot on too.
if i was to do a 8p3 conversion i would change the color of the car to pink 8p3 got more of a womenâs look, donât kno why but i personally think 8p2 with and without xenons looks more beasty .. no offense to the 8p3's
I didnât kno what else to choose an my budget is tight with the car now as av spent loads on it
adss, 8p3 in pink 8p3 in akoya? nahh wouldnât look as good as 8p2 picture it .. an plus 8p3 conversion is to much ££ to do
******* bus drivers, forced the car into railings aswell, passenger side damaged to
