    Personally I wouldn't paint the grill surround as you will get stonechips after a while.

    Thanks! Thought it wouldnt fit as the S3 is wider.. Going to consider going this route.

    Nasty weather outside so havnt been able to clean the S3 front bumper properly, still waiting on my lower grill clip, lower grill and cupra R splitter, got my washer caps just need to paint them, also fitted a front number plate and surround, personally think it knocks around 7 years off the car :), decided to paint the grill surround and rings black too which look much better, just need some facelift headlights now to finish the front off

    Received my S3 door cards today, Blue and grey suede, over the moon with them, £27, bit of a bargain i thought, just needs cleaning, can see in the pictures just give a quick rubb with water, but have some good interior stuff, need to get some black leather for my interior pillars now and some blue suede for the roof liner. Going to put them on tomorow i think.
