    Good work Chris, some great improvements, the black gloss in the engine bay plastics makes a massive difference.

    Looking good Chris, didn't you get that RS3 fake bumper? Or am I thinking of someone else? Anyway, back needs to come up or the front needs to come down :ninja:

    Car looks miles better now Chris :wub: love the colour and the whole theme. Solar orange is one of my favourite colours for the 8P.
    Keep up the good look, what else it planned? What shows you going to next year? hopefully be able to see you at some of them.

    Really good read this thread. Couple quick questions does the front grill part just I clip from the bumper and do you need to take the bumper off to do it?
    And the rear audi badge is that stuck on? And where did you get the black one from?
    Thanks

    hi mate
    sorry for late reply
    the first time u remove the grill you have to remove the bumper as they are two scres from behind holding it on , leave them out then next time you wont have to remove bumper

    and the badge is just stuck on ye, i got mine from ebay

    cheers mate, the exhaust is quieter than the miltek , but that is because i got the resonated system this time round as the noise gets abit much traveling long miles to shows, however out the car the jetex sounds awesome i'll get a video when my go pro suction cup turns up

    cheers mate, the list is endless mate, once the stance n height is right wheels refurbed and seat are in , it will be time to save for interior retrim / more carbon parts , then will be doing the face lift conversion

    cheers for the comments guys apprecite them

    Looks very nice, more pictures of the rear please. Got a question, Is this still the same car? 2.0TDI? Because how on earth can the exhaust be load, It's not possible is it?... how? When I got a straight pipe for my 2.0TDI, turbo whistle got louder and got slight deeper growl but with windows close, median-low volume music, exhaust noise almost disappears.
