    The fast, the furious and the ****-ugly.

    Those cars range from the gorgeous to the grotesque, and everything in between.

    Yeah some of the cars there were max power but you have to respect the workmanship that goes into them :)

    Tim the S6 wheels were stunning fully polished :wub:

    As for what else I've got going on I've seen a few more bits off other Audi's that I want to have done in carbon but I'm not saying what ;)

    Oh yeah, they put the effort in - and the cash. Fair play to them, some of them aren't my cup of tea but they're all pretty individual. I like to look at them, I'd only own a few though :p

    We'll last friday i found my way to Plush in Leicestershire I new I'd found the place as soon as i saw a MK2 sitting on the floor by the side of the road :)

    After a good chat with Luke and handing over my final payment for my kit I drove off home with the biggest grin on my face.

    I've gone for a skinny tanks, twin 4800 compressors and airlifts management.

    Now I'll be spending the next few weeks measuring up and drawing up my boot install. I'm going for a hidden install for everyday use but going to make it look nice so i can have the boot open and on show for shows. The aim is to keep the pare wheel and work around it but this may change.

    So I spent this weekend at the great PVC High Peaks Low Dubs show in Buxton my last show this year (I'm in mod mode now ;)) chatting air ride and checking out as many installs as i could.

    Here's some pics of mine the final ones before its dropped on its arse.

    I'm speechless! I'm not into modified cars at all but this is seriously good work and your car looks amazing. This is how mods should be done, not massive spoilers on a Pugeot 206 :)

    Very nice car. Congratulations on a job well done! Only thought I have is that with all the money you're spending on this car you could probably afford an RS6 if you just saved it instead :laugh:

    Hey Sunny so have you moved over to the four rings?

    I'm not going to Edition or any other shows this year :( using the cash and the time for air and other mods that ive got going on over the winter ready for ultimate dubs in March next year. Then all will be revealed ;)

    Add it to the list of why I should have gone for an SB, looks great! Maybe a bit much carbon inside for me though, but just personal preference.
