    needs a new bonnet aswell...Nearly £10,000 rather not and it wouldnt so be bad if they didnt put the s3 logo's on. When its not with just the s3 body kit be nice but you can tell its not a s3

    Saw that too, nice gaps! I dont think it looks particularly bad, just the twin exhaust and S3 badges. Nice to see they are looking after the rear passengers with the screens ;)

    haha didnt notice the pedals! So the person who owned the car wanted a s3 and also likes r32.. Not too fussed on the exhausts though. Like the screens in the back though! If they changed the bonnet took the s3 badges off and changed the exhausts i think its be quite a nice car. But still no mach to a real s3 feel quite silly driving a a3 with s3 badges on it. THink if some one else with a s3 pulled up next to you at the lights and gave there car a little rev and then you rev "your fake s" lol feel like a idiot haha.

    The yellow one just looks so wrong at the front, I guess thats a large intercooler at the front? Nice how the lights flow into the wings - NOT

    silver one looks fine with maybe exception of 'gills' on edge of bumper. What makes it an RS3? Engine/suspension upgrades?

    mmmm now you got me thinking. If he has already sold it I could just go for the new S3 and swap the engine for a 1.6

    Well at least we all know now that you can fit a facelifted front to an 8P(v1) without having to change the bonnet. LOL

    Gap what gap.

    Lol, this is nothing compared to what I saw earlier.. A 02/03 Black A4 1.9TDI 130BHP.. Badged with 2.5TDI and Quattro, they didn't even put quattro in the right place. Under the 2.5TDI, yes, directly under it, no! I just cringed when I saw it..
