    That looks really well, I know I said it originally but I think you made a good choice with those wheels, looks awesome now. S3 front would be mega!

    Looks well, the rear exhaust needs re-aligning BADLY and looks small in the S3 valance now though..

    Looking very nice indeed!

    Agree with N8 about the exhaust, it looks odd now.

    Good excuse for a milktec :)

    looks loads better but even with 35mm springs, it doesnt look as low as my standard s line with the same wheels!

    I don't think the ride height looks too bad but im not into slamming too low. Couldn't you just have the exhaust ends modified (cut & re-welded etc)? Sills look good but I've never liked those wheels, sorry LOL

    Looks good, exhaust need sorting and maybe alu mirrors would look good.

    I'm thinking the brushed Alum mirrrors actually look good on our colour of car Lee, I imagined them looking overwhelmed with the car's colour.

    I like the way they are subtle, not obvious unless your in the know! N8 also has them on his akoya

    I remember that option at point of buying - Chrome or black grill. Matt had black & Nate had chrome. Felt, TBH, chrome was more dignified/classy & black more sporty if you know what I mean. I felt Akoya was a dignified colour so that coupled with price difference went for chrome but TBH, it was hard choice as both looked good.

    The S3 badges are now gone! Replaced with A3.

    S3 front is deffinatly my next step! Easy 850pounds though lol! What's the difference between pre 2009 rear lights and post 2009?

    Thats why I went chrome/silver, as I feel akoya is a glassy colour, and black doesn't work with it IMO

    Car looks good mate,i have just fitted the S3 diffuser and it is not as simple as just realighning
    the exhaust,it won't happen, I have a milltech exhaust coming and i believe that it will still fit
    slightly to one side,so if i am still not happy i will get a stainless steel exhaust place to redo the tailpipes
    so they are centre.
    If you have a place near yourself you could maybe just get a new back box made,so it sits right with slightly
    bigger tailpipes would look great

    Are those pics after the car was lowered? Were they the right springs? It looks higher than a standard S-Line to me....
