    not sure that would look so good, however if you were to have say some custom work done and mount an 8p facelift grill in your bumper it could come good, just an idea.

    What about an 8p front bumper for it? Never seen that, unless somebody has pics?

    I like it on that 0-400 S3 with the turbo V6, but you need an equally aggressive car to match (which you may or may not have). Otherwise it will look like you're going more for style than substance which isn't really what I think S3s are about. Keep it subtle, or go all out - those are the options.

    I'm in agreement. After sleeping on it - it looks gash.

    Old man again...no, leave it as it is matey

    Audi, along with the other manufacturers pay very talented (with some jap exceptions) stylists to bring us these handsome designs, then, we the great un-discovered next great car designers think we can do a better job. nah..we cant can we really.

    The S4 above for example, yeh it isnt horrible, but it still looks like someones trying too hard to impress other people which to me defeats the object of owning a well known 'wolf in sheeps' type car as most of us do.

    If you want that look, why didnt you just buy a scooby or evo 6 in the first place??? I think thats what you should ask yourself.

    3 reasons.

    Scoobies are *****. Not a fan.

    Evo's servicing regime is utterly ludicrous, unless you do it yourself, and then they are worth nothing.

    I like A3s.

    have you actually logged aits to judge whether this is "inefficient" already?
    if not, do that first before carving up the front of the car

    beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and to me the proposal looks shyte

    Don't beat around the bush Bill, tell us what you really think.....:icon_thumright:

    IATs have come down a lot in response - so not thoroughly inefficient I agree. But surely now doing as well as it could!

    Would a thin vent above the number plate help, similar to that of a clio 182 sport, I recon custom front archs with vents on the back to help draw warm air from the engine bay would be good like the new clio 197/200 and escort rs cosworths.

    Good answer and i dont dissagree but then why wreck a gorguss S3 to look like the above??? ...just my opinion of course, I think your car looks fine the way it is.
