    Ha ye Im thinking more keep it to a minimum. Im waiting to hear back from council after I trashed my RS4 rims that were on my Golf drivin over an unlit island in the road! So prob get some more RS4s.

    Ive got her now so still gettin used to a diesel but soon as i have some cash Im all over that S line conversion!!!

    You will require a facelift bonnet as well to complete the conversion

    Get votex or S3 side skirts

    S-line rear bumper

    MY09 tail lights

    Decrhome the front with optics pack

    Possibly aluminium mirrors to break up the greyness

    Lowered on H&R springs

    Job done on the outside :)

    Yeah you need that reinforcement bar too dont you for the conversion?!?! I quite like the look of the standard S Line without skirts but maybe Ill change my mind once I get goin ha!

    I love that black optics grill so thats a defo!! Im really scared about lowering it, last car I lowered it threw out all the camber n everything, even after 4 wheel laser set up the tyres wa wearing down so fast!!

    I had coilovers wound right down in my sport for 2.5 years with no issues at all bar a leaky shock which was replaced under FK warrenty.

    I currently have H&R springs in my S3 for 6 months and they have been perfect

    Whats the ride like? S3 shocks are better than the sport ones arnt they? If I did lower it think Id have to go with coilovers, I think just springs on mine will be an awful ride and the roads round me are mashed!!
