    Looks great mate - black grill works well!
    Is that an odd wheel on the front though?

    Whats happened is the origional wheels have been removed to be painted black, while this process is underway they have just put some dummy wheels on the car!

    Rear Panel on Roof needs Painting IMO to match the Open Sky,
    I am sure that most Open Sky have this panel in Black to match,
    Could be me? have you spec'd it like this?

    I was following a black S3 sportback up the M4 from bath yesterday, although i didnt actually realise it was an S3 until i was close enough to see the badge. They dont look very "sporty" in my opinion.

    At least the white will shout it a bit more than a black one i suppose.

    Part of the fun IMO, if something looks subtle but goes like hell is sure to suprise people!

    But would prefer if it had flared arches bit more & little sportier looking so its worth the money

    Looks great in Ibis white. And the black grill and roof adds so much to the appearance of it.
    Very nice looking :icon_thumright:

    The mirrors have yet to grow on me though... just cant see himself liking them.

    What wheels are going on it then?

    Black roof and grill are an excellent combo. Gives the SB a nice bit of identity rather than a `stretched` 3 door.
    Enjoy.

    I have got the 18" S3 Sportback wheels going on it, in black. I am also getting the wingmirrors painted gloss black as we speak, should make them look a bit smaller. Though improved visibility is always a good thing!

    Looks great already and sounds like you've planned the perfect finishing touches to really set it off :thumbsup:

    We popped over to Swindon Audi on Saturday evening for the pre-meal drinks they'd organised and they had a clutch of white cars in the showroom which looked really impressive; the one that drew my attention immediately was an S3 Sportback with the Open Sky roof. I thought it looked fantastic!

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Agree, think the 5 door saps some of the sporty look in my opinion in any other colour than blue or white.
