    8P1,2 or 3 mate? And how cheap are you thinking? Rear lights are nice easy freshen up, but average joe probably wouldn't even notice. So depends what kind of look you're after.

    cheers guys, and sorry yeah its a 06 plate so i think thats 8P2?

    rear lights - are they just a straight swap over? are they LED?

    s line rear spoiler yeah thats something else i have considered.

    mines a 2.0 tdi "sport" so has the awful 17 inch alloys that look like a medievil shield. so think some new wheels are in order too.

    anything for the cars interior that can be done? i have symphony II, although looking to upgrade that soon also.

    Sportback rears are LED 3dr not, Alloys would be nice if you can get some BBS or genuine ones then lower it a bit and you'd be sorted. RNS-E + ZF fix is fairly easy and doesnt need much coding.

    Show us some pics:faint:

    Yes mate that's 8p2. MY09 or MY11 rear lights are a straight swap, user NHN is apparently the best person to see about them. There's hundreds of different wheels on the wheel thread so have a look there and take your pick. RNS-E is a good upgrade but not exactly cheap, you could also brighten up all your existing lighting. 8p2 S-line front bumper conversion is also a nice easy one seen as you've already got the single grill. What colour is it? The possibilities are almost endless, it just depends on your nerve, time, and of course budget!

    There is no way you will be able to stick to "cheap mods" now your a member on this forum. Just wait you will be searching eBay for parts bumpers and rns-e soon. Nice car and colour.
