    alright peeps,
    thought i would put a thread up about my 2007 s3.

    ibis white with big seats, flat bottom wheel and milenium edition sat nav standard.

    so far in the 2 years ive had it ive had....
    amd stage 2 custom map
    full miltek turbo back with miltek race cat
    h&r springs
    currently on 19" helios in gloss black but dont have any pics yet
    biggest mod so far was the full facelift to 2011 spec front end.
    i still have the tailgate and mirrors to change over the winter.

    Nice love it, did you do the conversion yourself? You need the wing mirrors or mot is a no go.

    If thou wilt meter exterior mirrors with Flashes, engines or exchanges of glasses with wiring port complecta, including locks.

    Or more so easy and cheap alloy wire harness inside the car, it passes right next to the grommets at the door :)

    I did it a little time in the car of a friend of mine.

    cheers for the feedback guys yea did the work myself with the help of some hardworking mates lol. wasnt too bad of a job although did have to make some new brackets for the wings as they fit totally different to the original ones and obviously have the drl,s programmed in on vagcom,i have tweaked the wings a little since these pics as i wasnt happy with the gaps and have also just put 19inch phaeton helios,s on so will upload some new pics this weekend.with regards to the grill badge been painted im not a massive fan myself but this was already done and havent got round to buyin a new one yet.

    To be honest most of the parts are off of my brothers car which was written off in a rear end smash so couldn't really give you a true figure as all I had to source was the front bumper,grill and headlights although to buy the wings along with slam panel,bumper bar and a few other parts ud need I'd say roughly 2k you could do the work yourself as its fairly straight forward apart from having to make new wing brackets as they fit in a different place and also code the drl,s in on Vagcom.
