    She looks outrageously good here - you went slightly away from my own preferences after that, so I'm not quite as keen in the newer pics, but this looks fantastic. No reflection on how it looks now, you've still done a great job - it's just not quite my thing.

    RS3 quilted buckets? Very nice... and glad to see you've brightened the front rings again, never been a fan of black rings.

    Also, nice Lego man keyring :thumbsup:

    Cheers mate :)

    Yes its a MK1 TT gator took a bit of fitting including putting a forge quick shift on so that it would swing right but i'm well happy with it.


    MartayMcFly there Audi S5 seats that i had trimmed in the same style as the 4k optional RS3 seats ;) Oh the lego man was a christmas presant from my 3 year old daughter :D

    Did some work on my front plate blanker the weekend as i wanted to break the black at the front up a bit more to work with the wheels.

    Brought a grey plate blanker with the chrome trims and swapped then into my black plate holder.

    new member here with a quick question, 1st of all congrats to a cracker lookin motor, before i bought my sportback i had a jook on here and seen this and thought sportbacks can look awesome........ so question is what was ur wheel and suspension setup prior to the air mod.
    when you wer running the s6 wheels which i thought looked perfect with a perfect everyday ride height....

    cheers mate

    Hi mate prior to the air ride i was running KW V3's wound all the way down it allowed me to run the S6's with no rubbing. I still love the S6's but they dont work with air ride :(

    The ride on KW V3's is better than standard ride even when there all the way down.

    Yes but you'll need to run spacers i ran 5mm on the front and 8mm on the rear as the S6 wheels are ET52
