    Thanks Ry :wub:


    Thanks for the comment. Naa dont like chrome wing mirrors. Think they just ruin the look of the car if i ever put some one. Like to see my car with the facelift drl but next expensive mods are performance etc.
    Rear as low as it can go with adjusters out and the front got another 25mm to go down with adjusters in :)

    Cars looking really sweet ash, gotta be honest though I am not a big fan of the yellow lamin x on fogs but I get the look your achieving all the same.

    Maybe some spacers for the rear wheels? I'm really looking forward to seeing the white calipers on it!

    suggested after seeing phils...probly would ruin the stealth look but would be worth looking to see how they look...the contrast on black is really eye catching.mines in ibis or i would probly go for crome mirrors.
    are you going to do the indicators the same too?
    guess the body work mods are complete??? and now performance left???
    that drop looks jus rite...really like the stance mate.

    droping mine 30mm...see how that goes

    Cheers RS :) Haha i dont think many people like the yellow lamin-x! Na i dont want spacers for the rear have to raise her then. Spacers for the front on the list :) Well i had bad news a few days ago mates garage with my s3 hubs got broken into but i've found a salvage yard by me that broke up an S3 a few months back and has the part. So gonna hopefully pay for it today and collect some this week and get them on ASAP:)

    On the facelifts they dont look too bad but on pre-facelift i think they look a bit tacky.
    Yes gonna have a look at them, seen a set on ebay which are darker will see how i get on with them.
    Last body mod to get my custom bumper sorted and the outside im happy with then. Performance mods going to JBS this weekend to have a chat.
    Thanks for the comment on the drop, will look better with the front raised back down and spacers for the front:)
    Once you drop yours get some photos up
