    Hi all, after lurking around on these forums for the past few days thought I'd finally register and introduce my new Audi which I picked up a couple weeks ago. Its an A3 S Line Sportback 2.0 TDI 170, and boy do I love it! :D. Just a quick snap on the iPhone, will take some better pics when I get the chance[​IMG]

    Thanks Scotty, yeah I had the black edition grilles fitted, along with the headlights. Had it tinted, and sprayed the alloys gunmetal grey myself, as I wanted to change them for some BBS' or maybe even the RS3 alloys to complete the BE look, but don't have the funds just yet.

    Oh and I'm from Birmingham Sandra :)

    Do want to change the alloys and lower it, but not anytime soon. For now a remap is a must, probably paint the callipers red, and maybe wrap the roof, side mirrors, and middle bit of the front bumper in gloss black/black carbon fibre, still undecided. What do you think?

    black wrap sounds nice, not sure on the carbon.
    light tint lamix x on the headlights too and then move onto dropping her slightly with some nice alloys and you will have a true beauty there!

    I think the carbon would look better on the front bumper and on the side mirrors, but would be OTT on the roof.. But i'd like the side mirrors and roof to match.. So dunno. What percentage lamina x would you say? Also is it legal?
    Yeahh will eventually get round to the alloys and lowering, but not anytime soon.

    Forgot about matte, could go for a matte roof and mirrors carbon.. But gloss would give it a slight panoramic roof look :p lol.
    I'll pop into the wrapping place and have em put the vinyl against the car and see how it looks I guess

    It is supposed to be road legal. I had light tint (6%) on mine but the MOT tester said he couldn't get the correct pattern to pass it. I had to nip over and rip the laminX off the headlights, gutted.

    Still got it on the fogs though.

    Yours is looking very nice, BE alloys and lowering will look awesome!
