    Not too sure to be honest. I reckon the bumper looks good, but not convinced on the bonnet. I personally think the color of the car is wrong to be able to get away with one, but its your choice! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Bumper looks the business.
    Can not say the same for the bonnet.

    Still your choice your car.

    I like carbon bonnets and to be honest in the flesh they look great on gold/bronze cars , the only other colours that can get away with it are white and black. Are carbon bonnets out for the A3?

    depends on if you like them or not, and the style you are going for. Pics are misleading as most things look completely different in the flesh. Also depends on what else stylewise has been done to the car.

    i love it, but it all depends what i do to the car, as Rich said. I would love it to be done but im leaving all my options open as i want so many things but money is a limiting factor. I have the full quote for the T28 turbo conversion sitting in front of me too, and im visiting Midas Styling this week to get quotes on what i want done styling wise. I can then go away and decide what i will spend my money on. I know it certainly isnt everyones choice but i appreciate your opinions.

    I'm with the majority, I think the whole point of an audi is the understated look and sticking a carbon fiber bonnet on it doesn't do it any favours. I can think of a lot of japanese cars it's done to, but very few euros.

    you should stick with the bumper and spend the 400 quid for the bonnet on something else, IMO

    good luck

    If you're that desperate to improve your power to weight ratio just go on a diet, or have a sh*t before you drive anywhere.
    Leave it to the Saxo boys & the japcrap dustbin tailpipe brigade.
    Not very Audi....

    He did ask for our opinions

    yep, your right. I asked for opinions on what you guys may think. To be honest, it makes no difference to my decisions whether you guys like it or not, it was merely a way of sharing what i intend doing to my car with other audi owners.

    I like the front bumper it looks a lot more aggressive. BUY it.

    Regarding the bonnet. Personnally I dont like it, I do like other carbon touches, like engine covers and bits of trim etc. I just prefer my cars all one colour. I prefer the clean de-cluttered - smoothed off look, which with a different coloured bonnet wouldnt work. Now if it were black then that may be a diferent story.
