    sandip your car is mint. I remember when I was looking for my nogster, I seen yours for sale and was honestly thinking about giving you a ring. I wanted a complete standard S3 though but your car has made my mind up about spraying my grill, thanks dude

    Thanks matey, i think its just a case of trying things out and taking a risk, i have a few things up my sleeve yet, just have to be careful i don't go to far, theres a limit to how much you can do before you start to ruin the car

    I had to do a double take there.....

    That looks really good with black RSTTs. Nice and clean too! I had originally planned to use mine, until I decided on the MTMs.

    Noggy blue and black looks the best.

    Gloss black roof would look awesome on that, seriously awesome.

    You could get it wrapped so you can always put it back to stock if you wanted to.

    Do it!.

    Personally, I'm not a fan of black roofs and I'd prefer to keep the black tones nice and (agressively) subtle. If you were to do anything, I'd go for the aero wippers, a short number plate, LCR splitter, blacked out headlight internals, light smoke tints, and a short black sumpy aerial. :)








    Or do nothing as it looks good the way it is.

    I was thinking about black headlight internals. I found a guide on here but cannot see the pics, think because the thread is old. I was also looking at vinyl, can get a full car covered in any colour for £700

    £700! thats cheap, wheres that? Whole car in white vinyl would be interesting, I've decided to get the aerial and get my headlight internals done black, does anybody want to do it for me? Or advise me on the best way to take the lights off, last thing i want is to break the headlight washer system or ruin the front bumper fitment

    Doesnt painting your headlight internals involve putting them in an oven to enable you to melt the glue and open them up?

    Sandip will you be posting up a guide to the internal headlight jobbie. Cant find any picture guides which I find the most useful part of guides lol

    The 8P S3 ariel is what im going to be changing mine to, what you after.

    A member on here told me about it. Il get in touch with him and find the company that does it. Do 3 years warrenty on the vinyl to. Seen a White E46 M3 vinyl rapped with a black roof it looked MINT

    When i get round to doing the light i'll defo put a guide up, try my best. Tom my lenses need changing anyway, the light brows will be going when i get the lights blacked out, don't think its that difficult to get the lense off, spraying it shouldn't be a problem, i hope!!
    Nattie let me know about that aerial please, i rang audi today, as usual they didn't have a clue what i wanted lol

    Well got to get tires friday ( Goodyear Asymmetrics hopefully or Potenza's ) then getting my ariel sorted will be next. Previous owner has snapped it from the base and the thread as snapped so I thought 8P S3 will be replacing it.

    Oh the website for the vinyl rapping is www.totally-dynamic.co.uk its getting me so tempted

    Correct in the first instance. That was outside my flat in the old Earls Court Hotel (Egg&Dart). Used to parked out the front near permenantly.

    The second is round the back of Cairnfield Place (just off Midstocket). Is Yates' still on the go?
