    What ever you do keep as oem as possible in my opinion. Oem skirts, oem front and rear bumpers either s3 or s-line (personally don't like s3 lookalikes)

    What year and spec is your car?

    When you say DRLs what did you have in mind exactly?

    for the rear bumper just upgrade to either the facelift Sline bumpers (plenty kicking about on ebay) or the s3 rear. the sides skirts are hard to find but either the votex or S3 side skirts are nice

    the LED drls are a massive expense... you would need to replace the bumper, bonnet, wings, headlights, rad surround and a whole load more parts

    Yeah stick to 8P2 mods, keep the cost down. Plenty of nice looking 8P2 on here, have at them for inspiration. Respray in the same colour, now this I will never get. Is your paint work that bad? or far cheaper to spray the same color? I would be picking something like a Suzuka white.
    Votex :puke2:
