    Yeah I was thinking the same thing - it dont look like no average 1.8T!

    Looks to me like S3 arches, bumper, Xenons, washers, mirrors, lower door trim......... - good job so far!

    S3's have wider wheel arches that A3's.
    From the angle the picture is taken it looks like the front arches are S3 and the rear are standard A3 but i imagine thats not the case.

    Nice looking car though.. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif

    Thats not an s3 front wing. Compare it to this one.

    [​IMG]

    Looks like the bumper has been pulled in to fit. If you look closely in another photo from his site, the wider ridge on the S3 bumper doesn't flow into the thinner ridge on the A3 wing.

    Clicky

    Who ever fitted it, did a look job as you have to look twice to double check.

    Out of interest, can you fit new front wings on an A3 from an S3,along with the S3 bumper and it all fits perfect?

    The guy in the pic above has nice wheels...

    yeah there is in my opinion.

    But this thread isnt here to discuss German Vs Jap, also was not talking about speed.

    Its a nice car mate. keep up the mods and well if you want a car that will "rinse and dry your Jap ****" get a AMD remap.
