    Well, just got an S3 so thought i'd put up some pics of it on here to see what you think.

    I'm really pleased with it, even though at the mo there is a problem with it (see other thread)

    The car is a facelift model on an x plate, it's got 19's, blistein suspension, carbon fibre induction kit and a remus exhaust system, has full black recaro leather and the bose system.

    I'm from south wales , can anyone recommend a good VAG specialist in the south wales area.

    Thanx

    Paul

    I'd like to get it remapped as soon as i sort the problem out with it at the mo, wouldn't mind getting some light tints and thats about it really, think it looks great as it is.

    Nice car! (even the same colour as mine).

    i'd strongly recommend you instal a Cupra Lip on the front end

    (oh and when you finish, let me know the detailed instructions:laugh:)

    hi Dan, youve got black rings on your grille, whereas mine are silver. Is that painted or new grille? If a new grill how much and where from?

    Cheers

    Looks nice and shiny!

    Bin the dealer tax disc holder for an Alu version and get yourself some aero wiper arms and blades.

    theres two ways of cutting the sides Gaz.... you can either drop off the edge to meet the wheel arch liner or do what i did and cut with stanley to marry upto the curvature of the bumper where it drops to the wheel arch liner...this is much more flush

    be careful not to set it too far foward too, looks really daft
