    Fitted narrower tyres (225/40/19) so to clear the coilover on the front, lowered it another inch or so, and washed the car today!

    Quite happy with how its sitting now!

    Opinions?

    On the back, nope. only a small amount with a full car.

    On the front, yes. Lots lol. Tyres are catching on the arch liners which i can deal with, but theyre also catching on the wing badly when turning into the driveway and on roundabouts etc. Something i shall adress with a hammer......

    Take the inner arch lining out and if you have a lip inside the arch on the edge, get a dremmel and skim it down.

    car looks good mate, although it's a bit of a strange mixed bag to me!

    Red A3's look awesome.

    19's look cool

    Low looks cool

    Rear mudflaps though? really? and the rear wiper still on a car so incredibly lowered?

    Just doesn't look quite right with those bits still on to me. Also, raise the back a fraction, or lower the front, just so it sits level and not reverse rake.

    Still love them in red :( No red facelift ones around though :(

    I hadnt considered removing mudflaps actually but i may just do that!

    The wiper thing is a bit new to me to be honest but i may look into it!

    Like the stance and wheel choice, very clean car you have there. :cool:

    I would make the rings on the front grill black as my next mod if that was my car.
