    I like it mate. Personally though I'd go for a black audi badge and a black hose to the front mount intercooler but it's nice to see something different.

    The red bits and the silver mesh are pretty gash.

    It might just be the photos but the front tyres look noticeably smaller than the rears in profile and width?

    Its not bad considering he's just bought it! i would loose the red badge and the tape on the hoses then get the fog light covers for the bumper just to tidy it up a bit!

    You mite wanna take the bumper off and see if u can fit it a little better although it might be a bit flimsy where the patio doors have been cut out!!!!
    But seriously with a lil tidying I'm sure u will have something a bit different that can turn heads and secretly I think thats wot we all want

    I like the white wheels but I think the centre caps need to match.

    Bit far from me then, that's a shame. Not sure if I like the hole in the bumper, although at least it's not trying to be an 8P! Any idea what intercooler you've got on it mate?

    just for info mate. if you get a grill, it has to be a s3 one, not a3. is it fibreglass or plastic? maybe reiger.

    looks jap inspired with the number plate...

    each to their own mate. I think white rings with the white wheels would be good alongside a black grill. Good luck to you.

    What did you give for it ?

    Not to my taste but could be tweaked to look a lot nicer.
