    Good progress, love the rear lights, was the facelift hard? Are you a pro painter? Get that s line bumper on asap, also imo bi xenons are a must for facelift models.

    its been a while but finally got time to finish the front end and fit the lowering spring and RS3 wheels, S3 rear diffuser, also put 15mm spacers on the back but i think they are too much

    Yes skirts would top it all off nicely. I'm finishing off and fitting my skirts this week. You thought about maybe painting outline of s3 diffuser grey to match wheels to it stands out! You payed good money for that shame if no one noticed it

    they are alloy not steel so lighter, i know mine is a derv so no real power benefit but if you look at the ball joint in the second pic the holes are elongated so it makes them adjustable , the first pic is the a3 wishbone
