    There was a geezer on here a while back who'd done a great job tinting his rear lights. Debadge - dechrome? Led Side and fogs?
    Not really my thing but you should be able to find loads on here with pics

    Drop it on a set of BBS rims, tint your rears, get the facelift rear LED lights, get the 8P3 rear bumper & diffuser..

    LED interior bulbs are cheap and DIY.
    Remove rear badges - also DIY.
    Black OEM trims for tail pipes - look on fleabay.
    New plates (surprising how effective this is sometimes).

    Hmm, I had my front indicator bulbs out the other week and they don't look anything like those bulbs - they seem to be integrated into an OEM bulb holder.

    Actually your right (re: facelift A3's), as when I had to replace one of those in the front headlights I found to my cost the silver ones were hugely expensive (£45 from VW in Reading).

    And they are an absolute b*****d to fit. Having man-size hand I cut my hands to shreds just trying to get the buggers to locate. I believe you can get them cheaper now (closer to £36 for silvers), but how they ever came to be that expensive I will never know. I suppose it allows manufacturers to stop you buying aftermarket as not many companies will make these.

    How about brushed alloy (effect!) wing mirror covers if you have the brushed alloy roof rails.
