    Amazing, The attention to detail is incredible. Stunning car with some equally stunning and impressive mods. As soon as I opened this thread and saw the spec list I knew I was in for a treat reading and looking at all the pictures.

    Wrapped the door mirror casings a while ago in Avery conform black chrome vinyl wrap, but due to the complexity of the mirror casing shape had a few join lines which I never liked - found these brushed black chrome door mirrors which will go nicely with the HRE Performance Wheels brushed dark tint finish very nicely - am not going to rush to fit them as will get them sprayed in a clear lacquer to protect them first.

    Nice touch, again, I like the attention to detail.

    I looked around your car at Blyton afew weeks ago. Truly impressive to see such a well done car in the flesh.....err.....metal !?

    Nice 1, really enjoyed reading through the build!!! Love the car mate!
    Just one thing; wouldn't it be safe to hide your number plate as thiefs could easily find out your details through the reg!

    Anyway thanks for the posts! Really really enjoyed it :)
    After I had accident last week, now considering getting either S5 V6T/V8 or S3 Sportback...

    But surely tempted to go for S5 :nyah:
    Cheers

    Wonderful car and V6T + tweaks is an inexpensive way to get some serious power.

    Quick question;

    When upgrading the brakes, what additional coding did you have to do for the ABS etc?

    Fantastic car and so jealous, you must have a well paid job or a drug dealer LOL

    I got mine on eBay, they are made by GRD Auto, but the gloss black chrome and brushed black chrome are hard to come by

    They look great. Was thinking that lot would cost a fortune in real carbon fibre :thumbs up:

    I just asked myself how the hell do they 'dip' a carbon fibre pattern... 'surely its a wrap'

    Just googled it and now I know -- looks awesome!

    Where did you get it done?

    Wicked Coatings - ask for Lyle and tell him Cuppa sent you. Absolutely top drawer job, and wrapped and packaged really carefully for return. :thumbs up:
