    yeah, I have been thinking about that, but its a little to expensive atm. Im a student, so I have to do my mods slowly, and I really want som more low atm, but I'll be thinking about the s-line front after i bought coilovers, i love that front!

    I like how the RS6 wheels look way better on an A3 than on the RS6. I might have to ditch the RS4's since every other VAG you meet on the road now has them. Even damn VW Transporters!

    Hi Luke! Thanks, im very happy with them!
    Do you have the same exhaust tip as i do? If you do, then you need to take a metal polish like Swissvax Metal Polish, Meguair's All Metal Polysh or Autosol, and rub the exhaust tip. The exhaust tip i have is chrome and just need to be polished. Make sure to clean the tip first with petroleum based degreaser, and then its time to polish :) When its all shiny and nice, you can wax it with Swissvax Autobahn to make sure its easier to clean, and that the result will last longer :)

    Thanks! I hope they will look even better when i get coilovers :)

    Thanks :)

    Thanks Andy! I love them myself, probably because they look bigger then they really are :p

    So, now i have a little project going on for the summer. I started a thread a few weeks ago about a s-line grill for my non-line front bumper, and beacuse of your great help i bought that grill. It was in a little bad shape on the chrome part, so i have decided to fix it up the chrome and paint it black glossy. I will also use PlastiDip in the center of the grill to cover up some of the bad areas.

    Well, now i need your help again, because i can't decide if i want to paint the rings black glossy or not. I think its a little bit prettier when the rings are chrome, then black glossy, but at the same time people recognize my car when its all black, and i kinda like that if you know what i mean. What do you guys think?

    I will post here as i go along :)

    To start the show:
    The grill are now with some black details on the s-line emblem. I did that because i dont have s-line and i dont like emblem trim, but i dont have any think else to put there right now. I covered the red part on the emblem with some black glossy 3M wrap.

    Then i separeted the chrome from the grill:

    And thats where i am atm, and here is a pic of what im going to use in this project:
    - Acid Primer
    - Black glossy paint
    - 3M Scotch Pad

    I'll begin to scrub the chrome frame with the pad to give the primer better grip.

    Stay tuned for this mini-project :)

    After a little amount of time and a whole bunch of sandpaper, i have managed to make the chrome look kinda like brushed alu, and its ready for some primer!

    Now, the chrome frame has been primed and painted. I gave it three layers of primer and four layers of black paint, then 3 layers of clear coat. What do you guys think about the finishing result?

    Does it go well with the rest of the grill? Should i do something with the rings?
