    First was the new rear S3 diffuser repainted and fitted

    Then I decided to have the front Fog surrounds painted in the same colour as the lower part of the rear diffuser to tie the front into the rear. I think it works well and is an improvement on the black. We decided to leave the black at the very back to give depth which works as well.

    All the paint work was done by Specialised Paintwork Reading. Alan and Karl down there were great and have done a fantastic job. If anyone needs paintwork done in the Reading area I can not recommend these guys highly enough.

    i dunno - i like it. i think it'd look better on a darker colour, but it still works on silver

    My rear bumper needed repairing and had to be fully sprayed as well so you need to factor that in but was £450 all in.

    TBH the rear diffuser was sprint blue and when I saw the grey lower part in my colour makes the grey look lighter than when it was spirit blue, on a brighter day the front fog colour stands out more, but appreciate what your saying wasn't too sure at first but now am in no doubt I like them that colour.
