    Funnily enough i've just taken my S3 in the same colour for the grill/splitter/diffuser doing gloss black aswell. Glad to see it looks good, but i think i'll be getting the fog surround done like your saying. Haven't had the wheels done yet though, was thinking about just buying some black ones than rather spraying the one's i've got on now (which are the same as yours) but now reconsidering it.

    Looking good Danno. Once I get the winters off and the CH's back on, I'm going to try the Alu mirrors again. My CH's have the silver rim protector, so I hope it brings in the mirrors to match the Audi rings as well.

    I reckon painting the front and rear valance black is going to be "the thing to do" this year for A/S3's with optics.

    I wonder how it would look with the 'hybrid' grill, Rich (optics slats and chrome surround). Should echo the wheels, could look good?

    There's plenty I'd really like to do to S3, the wrap/paint front and rear valance, exhaust, coils, map, hybrid grill (cheers Martin, forgot about that :banghead:), but I'm saving for the new car (to me) later this year. Changing my mirrors is simple as I've got both sets and the wheels just need to go back in the next few weeks. I'll just have to live with it like this, which isn't a bad thing to be fair.

    Problem is always that you think you're happy, then another thread pops up with a mod you've not considered before and you immediately think, I'd like that! Must resist.

    Was in picking up my ashtray delete bit today and they had all the 12-plates being picked up so the lot was full of 09/10 cars and there was a few 8P3 SBs that I had a quick peek at... very tempting (even though I don't need 4 doors).
