    yeah its -2 on the back it does look it when you look at it from square on at the back but the wheels hide it well,
    the wheels are 8*18's et35 but i have 10mm spacers on the front and 25mm spacers on the back

    I agree with voorhees, i wish there was more euro A3/S3s they look so good when they're all smoothed off etc.. Jay there is that camo TT with the £50 stuck to the back bumper.

    Kev you have quite a few suggestions, i like the look of your car, just think more needs to be done to have it under the "euro" category imo...
    i like tim's idea of the facelifts blacked out..
    the smoothing of the side strips, loose all badges, black out the front grill etc..

    Depends how crazy you want to go with it.. im going for the euro body work, but ive got 19" rims so i dont think it will quite fit in lol.. ive just dewipered it and lost the back audi rings yesterday.. ive got some smoothing/shaving planned but thats all im saying for now lol.

    do your own thing, your style, get some pix up.. you've started off a good look.

    Dnt know, if it was my car, every time i step out the front door and go to get in it, I would think i was going back to the future, and the doc would pop up from behind the drivers seat and hit me over the head with a flux capacitor.

    yeah not to sure how much further i want to go really i want it euro but not to the point its only show car material,
    im interested in loosing the rear badge and doing something different to the front grill, the one thing im really after is the facelift headlights just woundering what would be involved in using a3 facelifts and doing a hid converion as seems easier to get a3 lights,
    that would do me i think and possibly more of the euro look i kind of always have my own style with my cars rather then follow a crowd to the rule

    C'mon, you know what I mean surely . . . . just got a delorean-esqe look about them. I would love to see it with a nice set of split rim BBS or similar.
    Or maybe Bentley rims?

    ive always had VWs in the past and moved over to the dark side lol because basically imho the vw "scene" doesnt seem to be moving on also more and more chavs seem to be following the crowd plus "scene" taxes lol the price of parts etc is completely stupid if you ask me but thats what happens when a "scene" becomes to big
    im now running a A3 1.8T and Leon Cupra 1.8T and to be honest feel more at home with the chilled meets/shows etc compared to VW these days and is good not to see the same old thing everywhere you go
    the problem is now the price of used cars has dropped so much,how long will it be before the same thing happens with Audis
    just my 2p

    These are classic wheels. From another time and style. Mixing it up is just sweet. Looks mint and a bold choice it is. I was thinking; maybe you could color code the inside of the wheels in the car's color. Centre plate and outer rim would be painted and the letters and the "Turbo fin's" would be steel/chrome...? Just an idea Mate, got absolutely nothing to put my finger on. Car is a stunner AND has a perfect stance imo...

    Yeah. . . . the future! lol just kiddin.

    Being bold and different is good! but I just aint feelin it. Perhaps getting them refurbed like what Dennis was sayin would make them look more suited to the car/colour. But Kudos on being brave enough to choose the style and following you vision. :beerchug:
