    Totally agree, i am actually on the lookout for some Sec Hand spacers at the min, bit reluctant to splash out on brand new ones, but will if i need to. It needs lowering aswell so will get these both sorted pretty soon.

    The polish is Autoglym, This is the first time i have actually tried this polish and found that it is really easy to apply and buff off. I was using meguairs paste wax before, but it took a fairly long time to bufff off. The autoglym stuff was applied and removed within half an hour and i am pleased with the results.

    Nice looking car.
    I like those wheels, although the brakes look a little puny. How is the ride quality?
    BTW, you could do with the proper badges. :)

    The ride quality isnt too bad. it hasnt been lowered yet, so other than the low pro's ride is pretty much as standard. Although i must admit that the handling isnt as good as it was on standard rims, but hopefully a few suspension tweeks will sort this.

    Defo prefer the facelift badges though. ;)

    just saw those wheels on ebay, going for about £800
    would they just go straight onto my A3 seeing as they r 19". (got 18" at the moment)

    Not sure mate, as i dont really know too much about A3 fitment maybe someone else can shed some light. They went straight onto mine no probs so would imagine they are the same.
