    I was quite pleased at how well the FMIC fitted under the bumper.....

    ... and finally my rescent 256mm rear brake upgrade (excuse the orange discs, just been washed!)

    Cheers mate, i got the bumper off of ebay but it was quite badly damaged, so got it cheap :D and then got a mate to fix it and spray it. yeah its a straight fit, only problem is you have to drill new holes in the inner arches to line up with the s3 bumper.

    Cheers! I think the carbon is quite well suited with the colour of the car, nice a subtle :D
    Dont think i could keep the fogs unless i got new pipes made up.
    Agree with the wheel nuts! will be getting new ones when i get some wheel spacers!

    Looking very nice, really digging the headlights and bonnet.

    I did it on my previous car and it made such a difference. I sprayed my wheel bolts, either same as your wheels or completely different like green or red. Team dynamics are ace and the bolts do it no justice.

    looking smart mate, thought black wheels would look too much on the black ! but i was wrong, looking really good, id try and powder coat the the foglights a matt black or something, so there not shiny or anything. Liking the Td's. Take it you dint need that bleeder kit in the end then lol

    Oh right lol what i think would look smart, i was going to get it done to my a3. Instead of having chrome mirrors, get them done in a smoked chrome ( black chrome), so it matches the stealth look your going for. chrome would look too shiny for your car i rekon. The person said itd cost £100 for the pair. Wish i did get it done! Could also black chrome the fmic pipes too :D

    looks good mate. If it was me tho the bumper not lining up with the arches would **** me off.

    Hmmm, not keen. All looks pretty higgledy piggledy to me pal - nothing fits!

    I like the idea of black everything and carbon look - nice and stealth. Shame it's just a bad fit :(

    Higgledy piggledy?! The only thing that dosnt quite fit right is the bumper, but that is only miniscule as I dont have the s3 arches to match. But each to their own i suppose :)

    It hangs forward further than the wings and in the middle it bows up more than it should, the middle should be closer to the top of the bumper of the bumper if you get me! Dont get me wrong mate, i love the look i was just saying :).

    So what size are the rims then?

    before we all jump at Liams Bonnet for not fitting quite right, it's not the bonnet it's the car.

    Even when I first knew the car in July 07 the original bonnet didn't fit quite right at the front edge, it always looked slightly like it was left open. I think at some point the car's had a small shunt and pushed the slam panel back a touch.

    In the flesh the finish of the bonnet if first class, and the misalignment is only noticeable from a low front on angle, just a shame these pics picked it up!

    Looks good Liam, I want another blast!

    As for the wheel size... They are 17s :)

    Nick please don't think I'm slating his car, far from it, he's got the look I'm going for, all be it I'm going for 18, I was only asking why the bonnet was like it was.
