    The BE grill is exactly the same as the standard one, just without the chrome.

    If you want a different look, as you said, go for an S3 version :) I've got the chrome S3 grill, or you could get the BE S3 grill. Either will look spot on with the Bi-Xenons!
    Lovely car matey!

    Nice one nally.
    And yeah the older grille probably does look a bit better than the new one, but the newer headlights look A LOT better than the old ones! :yes:

    to show current speed i think you have to press the button on the underside of the wiper stalk (not the up/down buttons on the tip of the stalk)

    they have done a cracking job on detaling it inside could do better outside. ill do it when i get back off hols ( its only gonna sit in the airport for two weeks)

    need to clean the nut covers badly and the exaust tips. any tips ? heres some pics anyway

    Keep the chrome fogs mate unless you go for stealth :) I've sold my black ones anyways!

    Autosol will sort the exhaust out, as it has a DPF it doesn't get black quickly again either, also pop to Audi and buy yourself some replacement wheel nut covers, matter of pence each. You'll need 16 normal size and 4 for the locking nuts as they're a different size :)

    Oh and sort the rear plate out..... :p
    Nice car Nally, enjoy!

    No, your new A3 is Common Rail, your old A3 would have been Pump Duse. 2 different ways of injecting fuel, you'll also find the Common Rail should be more economical :)
