    Looks good, but I think you should lose the lexus style lights. Your car is too classy to have chav styling on it.

    Nice lowered.
    Not keen on the lights
    And your number plate is visible in your avatar.

    As for legs - yeh you have legs. Think yourself lucky.

    Ignore the guys above who obviously work in IT and don't get to meet women /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif (bring the flame!!) I USED to work in IT so i know what they are like /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    And how come you are a Mod with so few posts /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Legs.
    Skirt.
    Wheels.
    Car.

    /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jawdrop.gif

    Seriously though, hate to agree with everyone else but the lights have to go. Whats wrong with the standards? Subtle is the way to go! Those wheels look perfect against the chassis...doesn't look to high or too low. Nice.

    The Khan's are always a good option and certainly a 20mm drop will go well on the S3, but we need better pics to fully enjoy.

    I expect if you were in the pics Tanya we would hear far fewer comments about the lights!! But bit chilly to have them legs oput at this time of year I suppose...especially all that leg! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Hi Tanya,

    Glad to see you made your mind up on the wheels.

    The Khans suite the S3 well. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    The lights dont float my boat, but each to their own. If everyone was the same life would be boring.

    Just dont buy any neon lights /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Sorry, I hate lexus lights...really do. They even look **** on lexus cars. They're just something everyone did about 3 years ago (including me..). Look terrible and so out of place in my honest opinion.

    Why not go for something original? I know a few people that have modified original clusters but removing some of the jewels so they are all clear...look SOOO much better. Might not be road legal though.

    I still think the standard S3 lights look good.

    I don't like the lights either, think they're really letting your car down - it just looks like it's been shot with a shotgun that fires bulbs! I don't think I like the wheels that much either, but they looked good on StuartA3Turbo's.... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif maybe it's the colour or just the angle of the pic etc? Or perhaps I think my faves at the moment belong on StevieS3's /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif Not sure about that one...

    Of course each to their own and as long as you're /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif then it's all /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif.

    Far too much focus being put on the lights fella's just remember this is an open minded site where everyone has a different taste...... but I'm sure we can agree on Tanya's legs /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    And actually it would seem there is agreement about binning the lights as well, especially as my dad brought up the subject of lexus lights on BMW's the other day which is not a good sign!! I made him promise he wouldn't do it to his, or buy me a set for christmas! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Have to agree with most and say it's a spot on car apart from the lights.

    As for those saying stop going on about the lights, if you post a picture of your car on a public forum, you invite opinions, which unfortunately can be good and bad.
    Nature of the beast I'm afraid.

    Thats cool..you have better things to do obviously than post here everyday like some of us! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    (i've censored myself from all the sexist/funny comments!)

    But good to have a female voice (of reason) on the forum. Again i'm impressed with the people who run the show /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Can you get a better pic of the wheels/car as i do like the wheels and lowering. I'm due new tyres so toying with the idea of changing the wheels at same time and punting on my avus's which are mint bar one mark on one wheel from when a tyre was fitted.

    Groan...

    You have to complete a disclaimer stating your age is more than 13 years before posting here - by the look of all the pubescent, hormone fuelled comments you'd never know...

    Look what happens when you include pictures of yourself on a forum full of geeks.

    Well done on the wheels though, but those lights still aren't flattering on a black car.

    Some of the narrowest minds in the country are involved in the medical profession. Nice to see that your open mindedness extends to using sterotypes as well as veiled homophobia.

    Shame.

    I still don't like those lights though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
