    Looks like a good job, did the engine come out to do it? Was it an expensive job as I am looking to get a car done in spring

    Looks good! Is that the 8p colour sprint blue? Is it the same as the 8l nogaro blue?

    Imola yellow! ATM, wanted a noggy but nothing came up when i was searching so got the best example i could find thinking colours can be changed, plus the yellow does grow on you.

    Yeh some body shops don't realise overspray travels!! Had White specs on my wheels when I Had them refurbed I went mental. As I paid top whack I expected a top job . Decent sprayers are hard to come by now.

    Looks good though mate, suits the car IMO

    That looks really good mate, top job there, where are you based?

    Is it actually an S3?

    Car looks very clean inside and out and the interior is a perfect match too.

    Keep up the good work and do you have anymore plans or spec details of the car?
