    Hmm... Not a big fan of the American style of tuning/styling to be honest. I can see why others do though. I just don't think they do the car any justice really.
    To me, good modification is improving on what the manufacturer gave you both looks and performance wise while still following the design ethic of the car. Pro tuning houses like Brabus for example are brilliant at it, others like Schnitzer (IMO) ruin nice cars. Horses for coarses though eh!

    I also don't like US-style tunning. But red one with silver BBS is very nice.

    But americans doesn't have S3 :)

    Some of the american styling is not bad but they all think they A3's need to have carbon fibre on them - the amount of american a3's with carbon fibre bonnets and lifting pins is terrible!

    They all seem to go for the reiger kit as well and some have imported the S3 bumpers

    They love the look of the 3 doors and can't believe you can get deisel ones lol

    Personally I think the 3 door version looks better, and that isn't just because I have one - just my personal preference. Bit like the Golf GTi some just don't like it in 5 door form.

    they are TSW's. pretty sure you cant get them in the UK anymore. I could be wrong on that tho.
