    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.

    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

    Whats the benefit in changing the wishbones?

    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

    I've come across this thread after reading the sportback inspiration thread and love the look how it's coming along especialy the facelift as I'm looking at doing it myself in New year

    What year parts did you facelift to ? And was it bonnet, bumper and wings or more hidden bits

    front panel has extra bit for the head lights to attach to and the bonnet catch in the front panel is different so you need that also,

    Did you use the original bumper that was already on your A3 to fit the diffuser and valance or did you have to get a new upper part too?

    Great Thread btw:thumbs up:

    Yes really. I'm not a mechanic or anything I've just learnt the few things I do know from reading and asking questions, hence the question, but never mind.

    Sorry but I thought it was easy to spot as it's the new shinny bit and I show the old cartridge in one of the pics, but never mind
