    So this is was my first car;
    [​IMG]
    Broke my heart putting it back to standard but it had to be done, but bigger and better things is what they say
    But last week i collected my new little toy, an Audi A3 TDI S-line
    [​IMG]
    Already done a few little mods to it already deleted the rear wiper, removed the 'A3' & 'TDI' badge of the rear and added pressed plates
    But i collected some new wheels of Robin Pinning a couple days ago...
    [​IMG]
    So today i decided to chuck em on to see how they looked etc and this was the outcome...

    Nice car mate, not a fan of the wheel upgrade though.... The stretch look is better on a Lupo but that's just my opinion! :yes:

    Our cars look nearly exactly the same, except you have the newer rear lights :( haha

    Looking good dude! stretch could be a must and will be interesting to see this when its dropped.. I think the comment about painting your badge the same as your wheels is a good idea. Even if you try and do just the sides of the badge and not the front (if you can do that with the audi badge)

    TBH with the car on stilts, it doesnt do the wheels any favours at all, still reserving final judgement until its lowered a little, but atm, they dont suit the car at all imho.

    looks ok, but hard to tell without lowering, Front drivers side wheel has tyre tread wrong way round btw. If its a Toyo that is.

    Gotta agree with this.
    The height is just killing the look at the moment....

    [​IMG]

    ....especially at the rear wheels/arches.

    In your last photo I thought your car was still on the jack.


    But saying that... once its dropped I think the colour scheme (the red wheels/black tyres against a black car with red MY09/MY11 tail lights) will look very good. :icon_thumright:

    I think the car looks smart however, the wheels do NOTHING for it in my opinion.

    What else you got planned, just so you know, the wheels you've taken off it are worth a small fortune. I was on the hunt for some of those for a while, gave up in the end and had my wheels powder coated instead.

    If the condition of them is good with good tyres i have seen them sell on eBay for £650+. I wanted a set but i couldn't stretch to that.

    You broke modding rule number 1: Never do the reveal of your new wheels before you have the car low and stance roughly right.

    :)

    These are gonna look great when you're low.

    Everyone keeps asking about my 'new addition', "when are they going on?"

    I keep telling them I ain't ruining the grand unveiling with 4x4 stance :lmfao:

    been waiting for your thread jason! didnt buy quite a few set of rims before your car arrived ? lol! these ones are good, but speedlines seem a bit dated to me, but they are very nice...just not in that colour man!
