    jonny - the pinstripes would look very cool, there is a really nicely modded Lupo around northampton in white, black detailing and black wheels with white pinstripes - never thought i would say i thought a lupo was cool!!

    Jonny C,

    Going to be changing my mirrors for the black ones soon. Kept the ones off my Phantom Black 2.0TFSI.

    Not sure on having black wheels though. My get some gun metal grey style ones.

    Hey

    Im going to be having a fair amount of body work done to make the car match in with the black wheels, going for an all black and white theme on the car.. Same as my old mk5 GTI I had..

    I want to get my mirrors done black but Im sure i read somewhere about the s3 mirrors being pretty expensive from the dealers!

    Are the s3 mirrors the same as the other A3 mirrors? (apart from the finish obviously)

    Simon, your car looks great! Going to look amazing with the s3 bumpers, what type of smoothing out have you had done on them?

    Ive had the towing eye and washer jet covers smoothed then the little grey splitter painted matt black. Also the rear lower section smoothed into the bumper so there is no line anymore

    OH MY GOD!!!

    Them wheels are amazing!! can I ask where you managed to get them from, I have been trying for ages but didnt manage so ended up going with something a little easier to get hold of..

    Going to have to think of a few more special bits for mine so I can compete with yours when its finished!! haha..

    got them ordered from japan but they will take 8 weeks. Unfortunately im never finished with the car im even considering red leather interior and a big turbo conversion. Due to me working abroad i get to hoard stuff and fit it when i return

    Check out the sportback version of the A3 in America, they have a black roof, gives you an idea of how it would look..

    I was considering it too, to go with my black & white theme but I think it looks a bit odd, maybe better in person!?
