    Do it mate, best mod ever. Most are subtle, but as you know this changes the whole look of the front end and makes it feel so much more up to date..

    Thats exactly what I done Fran done the sport full grille conversion then sourced the parts for the s-line conversion. So many sport parts on the bay rather than s-line.

    Here's the car after coming out the body shop on Friday. Thankfully no fitting issues even with the random 8P7 part number on the facelift bumper.

    Very happy with the results - once again the colour matches up perfectly and they did a good job fitting the spoiler flush each side.

    Just looks like a facelift from the rear now, and so glad the only rub strips left are on the sides. :yes:

    I've got some MY11 rear lights coming tomorrow, so will get the SLR out again soon and do some decent (non iPhone) pics.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Cheers. I'm just gonna eBay them. As much as I'd love to pass them on to someone on here - I'll probably get almost as much for the MY09's than what I've just paid for new MY11's. So should pay for themselves really.

    If only they all paid for themselves! stick a post up when they go on mate. I probably can't afford them right on top of christmas, but i'll keep an eye on them anyway. Who knows? It'd be nice to drag myself off the sofa and up the ace with a car that isn't completely standard. :crying:

    As much as I hate admitting it - they are reps as the OEM version won't fit an A3. Hoping they bring out an A3 version in the future like they did for the A7..

    Your car is really a beaut! Love those wheels as they are one of my favorites as well. What offset are they? Are they Replicas or original. From what I know they only have them in ET35 for the original ones.

    My next mod is to get these A5 wheels so i'd be grateful for any info.

    cheers!

    Nice job baffles. How much did you pay for the sline rear diffuser if you dont mind me asking and did it come with the inserts?

    Cheers. The diffuser was £80 and the four inserts were £25 each.

    Expensive - but like the spoiler; come up on eBay once in a blue moon.

    The sun finally decided to come out today - so took the car for a photoshoot now the rear is complete.

    Since the last major update I've had a facelift bumper put on, S-Line diffuser and spoiler installed, and swapped out the MY09 rear lights for MY11's.

    Very happy with the result, other than the disappearing exhausts in the diffuser. Am wondering if the chrome tips can be taken off and attached slighter further out. The exterior is pretty much complete now - and yes I'm very aware that it needs to be lowered so please hold off with the remarks :p

    Have interior LED's on the way from Trups which I'm very excited about. Also installed Philips Diamond Vision bulbs and LED sides - looks phenomenal.

    Further plans? Eventually want to upgrade to double din and a MFSW when funds allow. Will be giving Ash or Nige a call, but have the challenge of upgrading a single stage airbag so is gonna be expensive.

    Will obviously lower it too when I stop using multi story car parks every week..

    To save those of you asking where and how much I sourced the parts from - please check previously in this thread as most questions have been answered.

    Let me know what you think!

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Looking smart mate. Wouldn't a set of S line springs be a budget way to bring it lower without ruining anything? MY11's certainly suit the blue more. A job almost well done, just need to find your tailpipes now!

    I picked up mine from the range. £2 for a bag. You can probably pick it up from most hardware stores, just make sure you get super fine stuff.

    Just a little update on progress I've made with the car this year so far..

    Yesterday it looked like someone had shat all over it so gave it a good clean today.

    [​IMG]

    Got hold of some facelift air vents a few months ago, fitted them late last year.

    [​IMG]

    Old and new:

    [​IMG]

    Still loving the rear..

    Polargs doing their thing:

    LED sides, Philips Diamond Vision dipped, main and fogs.
