    As subject I went to a VW meet last night in Northampton, and one of the guys that I have known for a few years took some pictures for me. Just a shame that it had been raining and that the car was dirty LOL

    Anyway I am happy with the pics he took (Well I should be as he is almost a pro photographer and has been offered a job by one of the Scottish mags /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif)

    Just need to get the front bumper recess sorted now (Being done this coming Wednesday) Then drop it on coil-overs /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif


    Anyway here you go:

    It's still an option as it's going back into the bodyshop on Wednesday /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bang.gif It's already sprayed up as well.

    I think I'll leave it off and go with the gut feeling though.

    Mark,

    what are you getting done to the number plate thingy? beause it looks pretty good how it is, but would look a whole lot better if the lines followed the lines from the bonnet if that makes sense? You see what I mean in the 2nd pic?

    looks good by the way /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bravo.gif

    I can't put my finger on it, but something just doesn't look right.

    The blended rear bumper makes the rear of the car look huge (i.e. too deep)!

    Standard facelift lamps, but they have got bulbs with a blue tint in them. Which makes them show up as blue /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Cheers. I like it as it is at the moment, but I am skint or I would do more!

    I'll ask him as I have forgotten, but I know it's one of the top of the range SLR's.

    I think it's either the Fuji or Nikon.

    Sorry I am hanging onto the spoiler for now as it will be lowered further soon on coil-overs and I'm going to see how it looks, then may be fit it.

    I'm getting them lines totally smoothed out and having the number plate re-located to the bottom grill of the bumper on removable fixings.

    Yes, but what are you going to do? If you are lowering it go for it. Otherwise I want to know first /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I don't want more ideas of things to do. Otherwise that will mean spending even more money LOL

    What side repeaters? If so it's got some LEDs in the wheel archs, but I am going to drill and put some in the black base of the mirrors.

    I tend to agree with Imola S3, but then again, that was what you were planning to achive with the smoothed look. The front looks good but I'd prefer some sort of cut out in the back like the S3 has to compliment the front, maybe even some black mesh if it isnt too fine.

    I know you are messing. Well I hope you are.

    If you could have a go with the S3 rear that would be great.

    Also how did you manage to find the pics?

    Mark, was gonna do the bumper chop tonight but I'm having trouble finding a pic of an s3 dead centre at the rear.

    If you can find a pic and post it (preferably a yellow one) then I'll get chopping.

    Either that or get me a photo of an S3 and then take a pic of your car from the same angle.

    Ta.
