    Well i'm waiting to get my car back from audi and booked in with rick to hopefully get it sorted once and for all.

    Got all the bits in the last 2 - 3 weeks so as you can imagine i'm wanting them on the car.

    Hi Andy, mods look nice and it's similar to what I'm looking to do. What kind of prices did you get each item for and where?

    Where did you get the grill from? I've been trying to find one that fits pre facelift s3 for a while now.

    Ill have to get the link for the grille cause can't think of the top of my head, was £23 I think. There is a few threads on here for the grille though thanks to others.
    The FBMFS was from eBay, £400 delivered.
    The RNSE was also from eBay, £360 delivered.
    The TT vents were from a 2003 and they were off eBay, £20 delivered.
    Got to love eBay lol

    No I don't know why people would PM the prices either, I know I wouldn't hide what price I paid or keep it to PM only. Maybe just looks it in the pic, it's white with a matte black wrapped roof
    Danny can you pm me a pic please, thanks.

    Hi icekay, the seller on eBay was damianme-uk. Don't know if they have anymore but with most items I send the seller a message offering them an amount straight into PayPal to avoid eBay fees. Yeah it's a risky way to buy but your protected through PayPal if your paying using goods and services so that's the route I went down personally, it's obviously up to yourself how you choose to buy things.

    Yeah really simple, there the MK1 TT vents. Literally just pull out the old ones, they have a locating strip of plastic on the bottom so don't twist them when your pulling out just pull straight back, think NHN said he's used a rod hooked at the end before. the new ones were a tight squeeze.

    I just deleted a post and didn't mean too.
    Anyway I left the peddles on cause I didn't see any point in removing them, I'd rather they were there than risk breaking the chrome plate you have to remove to take then off.
    Something to play with on long journeys or if I want to pretend I'm a racing driver lol
