    ash as mentioned before, the car looks epic. I was waiting for a while for some better quality photos of your motor as the phone pics did not do it any justice. The lava grey looks proper deep keep at it

    Nice one warr, yeah i want spacers all round will get some once i have spare cash.


    Cheers:) :laugh: haha thanks good to know

    Thanks :happy: I know phone or digital camera dont do the colour of the car any favours. Quite pleased how the paint work came out in the camera. Was a lovely day as well.

    Agree prefer the 8P2 S3 front bumper would look mean with 8P3 headlights lol

    :laugh: its not that bad.

    It looked terrible up against Ash's, didn't think it was that bad until they were put up alongside each other haha

    It will happen though, rather concentrate on paying off first though, it's then I can make the changes.

    haha not mocking it, my Black Edition is the same height but never parked next to such a low rider as Ash's and its just help me decide coilovers are a must now.

    I do love to see a White 3 door BE most including my brothers are sportbacks.

    Yeah Steve it is :happy: Yeah its not a straight fit the RS6 grill bigger and different design.
    Will just take it both grills a part, an user an S3 outer grill and the RS6 honeycomb section be a bit of cutting involved.

    Bought it on Ebay of Aberdeen Audi :) They are not a straight fit fella its an C6 RS6 grill.

    Same fella will look sweet :)

    Yeah will do fella

    Cheers fella:happy:

    Cheers fella

    I got the grill for a bargain brand new £135 cslled my local dealer to check part number was correct and price just over £400. Was just gonna wait till an rs4 grill popped up on ebay as they are cheaper and see them a lot more missed out on one for £115 last week. But when I saw this thought I have to get it plus no recess :haappy: Called a garage who done a friends rs4 grill they wanted over £350 :laugh: having a laugh.


    It will be :)
