    Ok well was hoping to update this thread with a few mods i've been working on but its not gone to plan so more delays and will have to wait as cash is tight. Just a few random photos from march to present.
    Forgot to say sold the S3 brakes to a member on here as im currently not working and they wont be going on any time soon thought it was just cash laying around and i can always grab another set once i'm working.

    My A3 & a standard S-line. Want to get a photo next to another SE so i can see the difference.

    Car now running some standard A3 SE alloys till next week cant wait to put 18s back on driving this low an on 16s is MAJOR:laugh: Had to raise the front even more as it was catching the bumps.

    Theyre not on my radar just yet. Got the grill, just need to buy new plates and lamin-x first before putting it all together. Im pretty sure the smoked indi's were £20 from an aftermarket site, defo gonna give them a bash though!

    What grill you putting on the car then? An RS style one? I seen you are selling your coilovers on ed38. You have better coils or gone back to standard?

    Well after missing a shoot with Fran a few weeks ago and being pretty p*ssed off for the last few weeks. Thought i'd treat myself to some photos car not in the best condition at the moment. But nothing major:happy:
    Anyway just some sneaky photos will upload the rest tomorrow. Would like to thanks James for coming to the photos shoot and Mr Merriman for the photos:happy: was a good day. Will have an update over the next few weeks with the new front grill and another lcr splitter :) As always all comments welcome good or bad. Enjoy....
