    Hi, im new to this forum so bare with me :icon_thumright:

    I got my car about 4 months ago... 3dr 2.0tdi 170 '57' Plate and am very pleased with it!!!!!!

    Only thing ive done atm is change the wheels to 18" A5 alloys and im chuffed with the outcome!

    What i want to do in future is either;
    S3 front and rear bumpers with Votex skirts
    Votex front bumper and skirts with S3 rear bumper
    Or full Votex kit? not sure wich would be better so advice would be handy!!

    I also am considering lowering it but dont want it to look cheap and 'chavy' LOL!

    I will upload pictures tomorow as it is a tad dark rite now!!

    It's more likely to look cheap and chavvy if you fit 18's without lowering it ;)

    I like the wheels too. Second time I've seen 'em on a black A3 and I think they work. Definitely needs a drop though.

    Lower it
    S-line front bumper
    Facelift S-line rear bumper
    Votex skirts if you can find them or want to pay the extra for them

    I personally wouldn't S3-a-like it. A stealthy looking S-line would look sweet along with an optics pack grill.

    Possibly some aluminium mirrors to break up the blackness

    Face lift rear lights would brighten up the back as well

    Have you debadged the rear of "A3" and "2.0TDI" ? if not, do it! :D

    The wheels are quite nice.
    I can only repeat what everyone else has said though....It needs lowering.
    I'm not a fan of dressing up cars to be something they're not so i personally wouldn't touch S3 mirrors on an S-Line.

    Nice car though mate. Glad you like it.

    They would give a factory S-Line type drop. It won't look slammed, but it won't look like a Q7 either. Coilovers will give you a great stance, but more £££ and will be firmer.

    Just went to de-badge it and decided to keep the A3 on the left and put Quattro under it... but taken off the 2.0tdi from the oposite side!!

    Why didn't you go for 19"s, I've got a pic of a black S-Line, lowered on 19" A5 rims, it looks very very nice...

    Why are you trying to make the new guy feel inadequate already?

    Anyway 18's are the new 19's.
