    Same grill that Luke's just stuck onto his facelift conversion, first on my cards aswell, I reckon it looks the nuts, and that price just makes it even sweeter.

    The S3 grille is 5mm shorter than the normal A3 grille. Audi do this to stop you doign a cheap upgrade to S3 spec on a normal A3!

    This will therefore be too big for the S3

    S3 in Ibis white - 57 plate.

    Going to stay with Alex at the end of the month to give the car a full detail - wheels off, hubs sprayed, the works!

    Actually the same day the APD are fitting the TBE. Will feel like a whole new (extremely clean!) car!!
