    Hi everyone,

    I've had my A3 a couple of months now and I felt like getting into the whole forum thing again after my time tinkering with my old 106! A slight improvement in this car mind! ;)

    I've had a small look around, and whilst i'm pretty with the car I've got to say, I would love to do a front end conversion, it does look a little bit smarter!!

    Other than that I haven't seen much in the way of customising things, as it's my first Audi I am a little clueless, but it's always fun to learn about a new car.

    Any tips/recommendations on little tweaks would be appreciated and maybe an idea of the kind of work/money involved in doing a front end conversion... just in case ;)

    Unfortunately, she is a little ropey for the time being, a few paint chips here and there and a dink in the back bumper. I would rather replace the back bumper with something a bit smarter than standard, based on my reading so far back bumper is a straight swap? regardless of what model?

    Lastly, the one thing really bugging me is the crack in the centre front bumper grille at the bottom (easily seen from the pictures) I need to get it replaced so it smartens her up a bit, but haven't really got a clue what i'm looking for, where to look or an idea of cost, any advice would be awesome.

    Cheers,

    James

    Thanks everyone! Bit of a delayed response as I've had studies to focus on.

    First mod will be buying a new tyre as I have driven over a screw. perfect!
