    Nice video, i thought of doing something similar myself...if i could ever be bothered.

    Not sure on the front number plate position, or the rs3 badge...

    I was going to get an 8P S3 intercooler and try that as a pal runs one on his 20vt polo but people still wanted silly money for them at the time. Chose not to in the end as it was a gamble if it would fit

    WOAAHHHHH carnage to that engine block.

    so many bad and good things to say about that car.

    one thng i do really like tho is the bonnet, that looks subtle but totally awesome touch.

    i think he has his front n/plate like that to allow for max airflow to the cooler, im guessing thats the reason for it, otherwise it's just silly, i kind of like the car, everyone likes to put the own stamp on it and look so to speak but it wouldnt be a bad purchase as a base to work on ;)
