    Hi there everyone, I've been some what of a lurker on here for a few months before purchasing an A3 sportback s line 140 tdi.
    Glad to say, I've finally got one! (pics attached after first cleaning session).

    As you can see it's the s line spec but with the lower spec black edition alloys, the mods I currently want to make are:
    Led interior and number plate lighting
    Hid fogs
    Back 5 Windows tinted to approx 30%
    Black edition grills/splitter or plastidip existing
    Maybe a smart oem looking double din unit
    And maybe a remap and a hit with the lowering stick
    What do you guys think of my choices? Any opinions or suggestions would be much appreciated.
    Thanks guys

    So sad to see such a lovely car with no wheels :p

    (I don't think much of black alloys, oh yes I do, they look like s... :) )

    Lol :D

    Still look like big steel rims that have lost the plastic trims, especially when moving IMO :)

    Very reasonable and nothing that'll break the bank! Nice car, your planned mods will really set the whole car off.

    Just a quick update guys, had interior leds and new fog bulbs courtesy of t8ups, can't thank him enough for the support, how quick the bulbs arrived and also smart advice about remapping:

    IMAG0792.jpg
    Led number plate bulbs to match are one the way too
    The new leds have made me want to retrofit the interior light pack so I think that's next on the list if anyone has advice or experience on the subject?
    Cheers guys

    Haven't had much time/money for the car so have been doing little mods here and there so I'd thought I'd post the changes:
    First of all is the S3 chrome pedals - brilliant addition to the interior
    IMAG0913.jpg
    New wheel nut caps (big mod I know)as I always thought they let the wheels down
    From
    IMAG0859.jpg To
    IMAG0861.jpg
    Off track abit but I then managed to get this ( I dont know how although it was ALOT warmer when I got this as you can tell)
    IMAG0973_1.jpg
    After that I had the back 5 windows tinted by a company called Global Tint - happy with the results, just a touch darker than OEM
    IMAG1291.jpg
    Then a little larger purchase of the Xenonz RS3 grill - getting closer to the storm trooper look
    IMAG1422.jpg
    The back got a tidy up - The 2.0 badge came off and a pressed plate with no surround went on
    From
    IMAG1313.jpg
    To
    IMAG1348.jpg
    Aaaand then this happened - I got a free brick, when Autoglass repaired it they put factory tinted glass in though which was a plus I guess
    IMAG1359.jpg
    Boot trim being taken apart trying to find glass rattling in the panels
    IMAG1413.jpg
    Then some wind deflectors
    IMAG1420.jpg
    Let me know your thoughts guys, any comments are welcome!
    One artsy one for luck:

    Interior light pack is ace. Robin on here does a loom for a retrofit. I got red LEDs of tups and it does look great at night. Will post a pic

    @Ibisa3 That was on a 20 mile ish drive, dual carriage way and town driving, although to be fair I had the luck of the traffic lights with me and barely stopped.

    @lgooch I love the interior light pack, sets the cabin off nicely - haven't quite decided which way I want to go with the interior yet so I'm trying to get the majority of the outside sorted as I think but the interior light pack will be coming after seeing yours!

    @Lee78 Thanks for the kind words, most of the mods make it look like a black edition so you're way ahead! The RS3 grill has made a massive difference, just looks much more aggresive!
