    That's my car!

    Not an Optics grille though - just the standard s-line one.

    Cheers 10Blazin.

    khalil - Still looks as good as new mate. Wash the car at least every other week and everything's still stuck fast.

    Looks nice, I had not seen any close up of these yet... will look very good when lowered.

    I was thinking about adding that striping to an S-line grill, yours came out very nice btw ron. If the grill I'm trying to put together does not look any good I will definitely be giving this a go. Had seen an ad on eBay for something similar but was also concerend about washing etc... good to hear no there's issues!

    i think the 35mm spring will drop your car by 15mm, because the sline in lower by 20mm than the standard, when companys qoute the spring drop they mean from the basis model, so if u had a basis a3 those springs would drop it by 35mm
