    totally and utterly not my cup of tea but yeah looks good and unique.
    looks like the drivers door hinge needs adjusted to raise it a few mm as well (on the first pic, not the onewith the door ajar.)
    Also would go for some facelift rear lights. they really freshen up the arse end.

    it looks like nothing lines up. i have been looking at it for the last few mins. the front 8p bumper seems to have a fat top lip? did you punch it? Dont get me wrong, i of all people love to be different but i think it needs... well i dunno... it just dont look like nothing fits.

    dont wanna sound a c**t bud but i assume you wanted us to tell you want we think? it just looks wonky lol

    i think if the bumper was white it would look a million times better. i have always loved white cars with black bonnets and roofs. How much you give for her buddy if you dont mine me asking? she standard?

    Hate to rag on your hard work, but I'm not a fan. Don't like that look at all. Sorry.

    I like the wheels though, the white lip looks good on black wheels/white car.

    I just showed an audi buff at work, he pointed out about the choice of colour about the 8P grille, there has obviously been quite a bit of work gone into getting the new grille into the bumper, yet it is barely noticable due to being black and just appears to 'disappear' into the black stripe of the bumper.

    loving the black roof, although the bonnet and bumper do look **** imo, the bumper looks like its had another piece grafed onto it making it more 'bubble' like - each to their own of course

    if it were mine id have the bonnet white, an S3 bumper modded with RS4 vents, maybe different grills, and lift the ride height cos it doesnt work with your wheel size/arch shape

    also you need spacers on the wheels urgently, along with a private plate and you need to get the bonnet aligned up as it looks like its been rebuilt by a stevie wonder body shop

    other than that everything else looks spot on to me, good effort ;)

    NO NO NO NO... Not for me dude it just looks wrong !!.. think you were going in the right direction but got carried away a little with the black..

    IMO ; Bonnet white front bumper white, black out the grill. Get some definition back into it.
    Need some 18's and spacers too.
    To be honest id be ripping that bumper right off im not a fan of them on the 8L at all.
    But i do like it in white.
    Have you seen Huzy's on page 37 in pic's sticky?? Now that look the dogs.

    But all in all good one dude you went yr way and you like what you'v done so that's all that matters.

    I quite like it, only quite as itd look lovely with a normal front end, keep the black roof as it does look really good on white cars, and get some 18 inch black alloys andkeep black wing mirrors. i love the white on black look. would love to own a mini jcw in this colour theme, black roof etc! :D

    are the wheels team dynamics?

    Not my cuppa, but hey, if we was all the same, wouldn't it be boring?!

    Regarding the black roof, I think you need to follow through and get the top bit of the biit lid painted black too, it looks unfinished, or stick a black S3 boot spoiler would maybe do the trick. Not too keen on the 8P front end look on an 8L, but as you have blacked everything out, it's quite subtle and easily missed.

    Looks like you've put a lot of hard work and effort into it well done but its not really my liking, I like my Audi's sleek and subtle but thats just me...

    Guess its like marmite.
