    Picked up my A3 1.8T S Line on Monday. It is a 2007 reg in Dolphin Grey with loads of extras. Pics at the dealership:

    Already knew the extra bits I wanted to buy to make it how I wanted it so got straight on with it and nipped into my local dealership to pick up my Black Optics Grill and a leather armrest (got a great deal on them aswell :)) and after much struggling, got them both fitted yesterday

    And today, the sun was shining so gave the car a quick clean. Process used:

    Snowfoamed
    APC'd 4:1 on lower half and wheels
    Washed with Megs Gold Class shampoo
    Dried with Sonus drying towel and Megs Last touch
    Vacummed and wiped down interior

    Looks good with the optic grill!I do like your alloys aswell! But i think the dark Rs4 alloys would like good with your colour of car. And window tints! I'm having all my windows tinted 3 back windows darker than the front. I know your not allowed the front two but i dont really care stupid law if you ask me

    Very nice mate!

    Used snow foam today on my car for the first time - well impressed with it - makes a huge difference doing this before a wash - you could see the foam/dirt running down the side of the car.

    Thanks for the comments chaps :beerchug:

    Grill was from a main dealer

    Got armrest with leather lid and full optics grill with plate holder for £325. Think RRP was £400 :) I know I could have probably got them cheaper if I waited for them to come up second hand on ebay but Im impatient :racer:

    Black grill suits very well. Always liked those wheels too. Lamin-x would look great!

    what is this lamin-x? I believe it is something to do with tinting the headlights?
