    No mate I have RNS-E, but you were asking about a potential price a while ago weren't you? I sure someone would want it as I'm sure it's a good bit of kit.

    Yeah, think I will keep hold of it though for resale time! But if offered good money for it I would have to think about it!

    Loving the RNS boydie, you won't regret the headlight switch, makes so much difference.

    Mate, I completely love your car. It looks and sits beautifully. I'm in awe. When I come around to buying wheels, you're gonna have to be my consultant!

    The suspension is not really much harsher than it was standard on the 18s and suspension

    Just get a decent set of springs eg H&R and a decent profile tyre and there should be no issues or worries!

    Thanks for the comments! :)

    Not much has happened with the car at all since October but over the xmas period my friend and I installed Cruise to both our S3's

    Such a cheap and easy mod to do which literally took us 35mins to do each car.

    A £450 optional extra from audi done for £75 in parts and a bit of research! :)

    Also finally got a S3 badge for my FBMFSW!

    The car is currently covered in muck, slush and slat during this bad weather :( can't wait to get it cleaned properly! Nothing beats a clean car in the middle of snow!

    £450?! It was £240 when I ordered mine, still a rip off though.
