    Hi all,

    I have returned to this forum after an 18 month stint in a TT. Now I am the proud owner of an 07 S3 :)

    To - Do List
    De Chrome front grill - DONE!
    Powdercoat Wheels - Anthracite
    MY11 Rear Lights
    Cruise Control
    Auto Headlights
    US Style Centre console
    Armrest

    Mods are mainly aesthetic for now untill i get bored of the power then i will be going down that expensive and slippery slope!

    I will take some decent photos when i have the lights and wheels done however here is the car awaiting my collection

    A hash? By changing the colour if standard wheels and going black for the grille surround? Bit excessive?

    Black grill and anthracite wheels are overdone mods as it is (see any poor mans diesel A3 around here) I know a lot of people don't like chrome now but I think against black paintwork the S3 grill and mirrors look far superior to emptying a tin of paint over the car and saying "yer, modz (Y)"

    Stay classy San diego

    Chrome looked good about 20 years ago mate, FYI the mirrors are more brushed aluminium (hence the flat matte colour)

    Maybe in your opinion it wont look good, but seriously get off your high horse
