    the pioneer screen has built in phone usage with its bluetooth link, uses same stuff as parrot so it isnt needed anymore and its a bit of an eyesore as without it it would be flat and clean

    yes a black grill will 100% fit your car mate , chrome mirrors look good on dark coloured cars give it a go mate if it doesnt work then you can remove them easy

    Love the wheels :wub: How have you managed to get ur car to stand so high like that without coilovers/air? Also is it a petrol or diesel? Where are ur fog lights?

    To add to your list,
    MY11 Rear lights
    S-line or S3 bumper/ spoiler
    Rear tints
    LED sidelights/number plates/ interior.
    RNSE

    His car is a basic 1.6 petrol a3 that does not come with the fog lights or the climate control.
    Also why on earth would he want an RNSE after getting that lovely pioneer kit? The RNSE is so outdated. But defo on the my11 lights and the updated bumpers.

    To the op, the car will look really nice when you are finished with the coils and grill. I love those alloys but heard too many horror stories of them buckling as they are reps

    I want to see what it looks like lowered :thumbsup:

    yes i went to my local place that does wrapping and they got some and showed me how it looked and it looks great, i am now getting the roof, spoiler and bonnet in a carbon wrap, its high quality and it looks and feels like the real thing, that is getting done monday, the coilies are going on tuesday and i will soon be debadging.
    The my11 rears and s3 bumpers is something for the future as i have had it a week and already blown 2k on it ;)

    Hey guys i have an update for you all.

    please let me know how to get the coilovers lower, they said a 30-65mm drop but it seems to be down only like 15mm :( the garage said they are as low on the front as they go just putting the springs down but what will make them lower?
    thanks

    You have to wind down the adjusters on the struts mate. Good start so far not a fan of the bonnet though.

    thanks, the carbon is just a taste thing i guess, i like it as it adds a different sort of texture/finish to it making it stand out more but im sure it will not be my thing in a year or so and will be off ;)

    the garage said the springs are as low as they go but does that mean i can still lower the struts?
