    Boydie really love the car, I have to say it's the perfect look!

    Out of interest you mentioned that the s-line rear bumper is a different shape, do you know if you can fit the bottom section with the black cut out to a sport bumper?

    Drew - they are 19x8.5 BBS CH offset et50 with 235/35/19 tyres :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the comments men!

    Baseline - unfortunately the s-line splitter does not fit the sports bumper! Keep an eye out at the breakers or ebay for a complete rear bumper. I made a good decision I think as the s-line is much beefier and smoother looking I believe!

    Kaz - the car handles very well with the drop and 19s - however, the car's turning circle is pathetic now but it does not bother me. Also, with the addition of the s-line rear bumper, there is a bit of ruubbing off some screws which are located on the inside of the arch line. I am going to have to investigate this when I have a free weekend but it only rubs if I had a bump but again....doesnt bother me!

    when you changed the bumper did you need any other parts? or is just a simple bumper on off job?

    Just the bumper and splitter is all that is required - you can transfer screws and clips from the old one onto it!

    Boydie, I followed your lead here and applied the vinyl to the chrome pieces.

    I'm toying with the idea of adding more vinyl to the central section of bumper where the number plate sits. Which may give the impression of the single frame grill.

    What you rekon? Apologies for the dodgy effort on your picture, I've only got MS paint ..........

    Boydie, How many strips of vinyl did you cut for each grill section? I have finally managed to get my hands on some Matt Black so hopefully this will sort the trouble i had with stone chips on my painted out grill sections!

    It wasnt much - I just covered it by a whole sheet then cut out the middle out so base the size you need by the size of the grill itself

    so you just used one piece for the top and another for the bottom and then pulled it tight to take out any slack rather than cutting strips for the sides, bottom and top of each section?

    I used one whole piece for the grill and just heated and stretched it for the corners - I did have to use some small bits to cover little bits of chrome but you cannot see this!

    Awsome bits you have added. Its different but not outrageously so... Just RIGHT!!!.

    BTW love the Vinyl application. I did the chrome trims on my Golf Mk II before and put red stripes on.... Looked like a GTI for a second!!

    Looks very well :D

    I think you may be the best person to ask as you seem to have the same taste as me,

    Just purchased a 2005 Big Grille A3, plan to fit Votex front, votex sides and roof spoiler but im not sure on the rear diffuser,

    Is there any other option to fit to the lower section?

    Hope that makes sense sorry im abit new to the A3,

    Rob

    Forget the front lip mate - source yourself an S-Line front bumper which is much nicer IMO!

    As for the back, get the S-Line rear like mine, look better than any other valence on the market!

    Thanks for the comments!

    OK, so i guess S-Line front, Votex sides and S-line rear?

    Would it not be worth trying to get S3 front ?

    Cheers

    Like you said, S3 is for S3 :yes:

    One thing you forgot to say is the colour of the car... Is it original colour ? Maybe can you give us the colour code ?
