    Only items which I haven't sold are Phillips Diamond Vision H7 (x4) and the Audi rear number plate LED's.

    PM me if anyone is interested.

    great build man really enjoyed that read, has made me make my mind up about the sline conversion so defiantly going to source my parts now, what was the issue with the front bumper and the front cross beam?

    cheers

    The cross beam was too long for the S-Line bumper so had to be trimmed.

    I thought this issue was isolated to the S3 bumper, but sadly not.

    Was just under £200 from Stoke Audi parts. Comes with adhesive tape attached, will also need to be bonded on. The lugs need removing if it will be fitted to a non-S-Line tailgate, straight forward job.

    Running costs and the fact that it went in for an Audi service and they advised that the gear box did not have long left.. was not willing to face a £3000 bill :sob:

    Just be careful, the 3dr spoilers are different from the Sportback ones and they aren't interchangeable.

    Stick it down with some TigerSeal or similar, won't shift then!

    Are you happy with it?

    It's basically a scaled down a3 isn't it ?
