    No problem. Haha i think i know what you mean, dont want to go too over the top.
    What grille you thinking of going for? I need some xenon headlights when funds allow and i know some one who can fit them lol. Sounds like you got some good plans.

    Get yourself to some off the big events next year Audi In The Park and Audi Drive ASN normally have a big club stand at those two events:happy: I'll be keeping an eye on this thread:thumbsup:

    :think: hmmm i guessing you lol? How much you had? :laugh:

    Same place as the plates, they do the Abt wolfsburg ones aswell, some others aswell i think. Just think it finishes off the pressed plates nicely lol. Got a few looks off a fellow A3 driver on the M62 today lol, think he pointed out the plates haha! Any more questions mate , ask away, dont mind helping out ;)

    Looks sweet pal! Will look awsome in black too! I fancied the rs6 grill like mattandrew has done on his but they cost a pretty penny them things !! Plus being from near manchester police dont mess about around here! Lol i had a mitsi lancer before my a3 with my plate in my window, dont like the hassle lol!! Your best off seeing what you can do with your current split 1st look at it this way, the more people convert the rarer your car becomes lol ;)

    just dont leave it on too often. if it rains and you do a long journey the bonnet heats up and can cause reactions in the paint. has happened to me and fair few people i know. also don't encourage dirt to slip down, say going down a ruff road.

    other than that they work.
