    Just read through the whole thread. Well done mate. I admire your patience in collecting the parts the go "bam!" and get them fitted in big lots.

    The accident was sort of a blessing in disguise as you got a s-line front bumper without requesting it.

    Lastly, black car on black rims rocks! Don't you fancy getting the machined part of your alloys temporarily coloured in red RS3 style? I.e., plastidip maybe so you can peel off if you don't like it? Just a suggestion but the car looks great as it is mate.

    Keep it up!

    Thanks for the comments mate ..:salute:

    I wouldn't get anything color coded in red as it's not the theme of my car. My theme is Silver and Black ...

    1. There based in Luton I would not recommend them at all as they have done a bad job on the paint job of my bonnet and rear spoiler.

    Just a little update.


    1. Front S3 Breaks "Finally"
    2. Audi A5 Electric Heated Seats
    3. New Black and White Cluster

    A close comparison on the size differences between the Normal TDI and the big S3 Breaks.

    As I had all 4 tyres off I thought I might as well give a coat of hammerite black paint for the rears also as they where crazy rusty.

    End Result :

    You have to take the old rear frame from the A3 and swap it out with the A5 one. It's not that difficult as I thought it would be.

    thanks ..

    1) 2012 mirrors would be fine.
    2) Coding them won't be an issue just ask me or put up a new thread.

    Wow, you simply wouldn't believe your car is a 53 plate. Looks spot on!

    What did the quality of the wheels seem like? Thinking (if I don't end up buying a late model black edition) of getting some reps and was just wondering.

    Just noticed you changed the centre cover on the steering wheel - I bought one ages ago but I have never got round to fitting it! I know it is riveted on, what did you do to get them off? Drill then re-rivet? Any rivet?
