    That was my first choice but most people at work have been saying it looks "cleaner" with the white roof ..

    Yeah but cant post it up cos my misses dropped our laptop! I thought it might look a bit plain or too much but i was real happy with the outcome, Got plenty of other black bits to break up the white. I'll try and get some up soon, might even be some on the B5 section on my re-spray thread

    Hey Kal,

    Im thinking all white...looks alot smoother and slicker.

    For some reason, the black roof looks good on silver, but on the white, i dont think it goes.

    Having it done at a family friends body shop so is doing it cheaper than they normally would (£1400)
    Having the S3 wings put on along with the S3 side skirts (this has been a nightmare)
    Rear arches are being tweaked to line up with the S3 rear bumper better
    Having S3 spoiler fitted too
    Had bump strips from doors removed
    and getting the boot lid de-locked and smoothed to match the smooth front and rear bumper

    alot of the grey plastics are being painted Gloss black aswell (round the front grill and the lower door mouldings)

    Went to see the car yest and its coming along should be going in for paint early next week!
    90% of the car has all been rubbed down now and the holes from the bump strips all filled in feels smooth !

    S3 lower door mouldings should turn up tomorrow then can make the final adjustments to the side skirts

    White with a black roof will look good, so what if its been over done, it's because it looks good :)

    You have black wheels, will you do the rings and mirror covers black too??

    Thanks! Yea I still haven't seen one old shape A3/S3 in white in my area let alone with a black roof so it should stand out :D

    Mirror covers are already black from when I had the roof done last year and I will leave them black, but was just going to leave the rings chrome on the front and debadge the back completely. Still wanted the rings visible

    I had the outer rim of the front grille painted in gloss black and rear bumper insert last year too

    That looks great !

    One thing though...any reason you didn't opt for facelifting the front end when it was all being done?

    Facelifting the front end ? Are you talking about changing the headlights to the one piece lights ? If so I am looking to get a set soon

    The wheels are the 5 x 100 Mille Miglia wheels so they are a direct fit no need for adapters

    At the back above the number plate where the key lock is it sticks out on my car, I have seen some that sit flush with the car.

    Does anyone know where I can get that from ? Or does anyone have the part numbers of the bits i will need ? I assume all the number plate lights would need changing too ?

    [​IMG]

    I want to do something similar to this

    The lock on my s3 sits out slightly. If you want it not to stick out as much then I guess you could put some washers/spacers on the bolts inside which holds the lock barrel to the boot and that will mean it sits back slightly. As for the paint job, it looks awesome, mostly because I have spent the past two months doing the same to my s3!!
