    Sandip,

    Still loving the RS4/TT 9 spoke wheels, there are a few polished and diamond cut ones on ebay at the mo that look spot on for good money.

    There are a set done by GMP (italian) 10 spoke which look hot but I've only managed to find them in 17".

    Dare do some nice wheels but finding the correct fitment is a headache and it seems once I have decided on a set, I see a new set and I'm like whoa they look nice....I wonder....

    I'll post up some better pics later, not happy with those below, they are unflattering to her.

    What I was going to ask was on your car are those rubber strips on top of the lights standard or did they come with the eyebrows?

    Cheers

    RS4/ TT 9 Spokes always a good choice, can't go wrong. I've got them in satin black for winter, black ch's or lm's with a red lip would look really nice. I've seen red S3's with the diamond turned RS4's they do look good but never seen a red one with the black ch/lm combo. Your car's not got hardly any shiney bit so if you got the black ch's or lm's and then did your headlights black, that would look stunning:yes:

    The things on top of my lights are eye brows, i didn't put them on, came with the car. I've thought about getting rid of them but they make my car unique, don't tend to bother what others think, i like them so thats all that matters lol

    :hubbahubba: Almost as clean as mine:) Looks good mate, some black wheels with a red lip, blacked out light inners, a spot of lowering maybe even a black vinyl roof and thats going to be a serious stunner! What ever you do though i'm sure it'll look good, keep it up

    Rimstyle do alot of wheels with a red lip - it's where I got mine from.

    Loving the "black detailing" theme you've got going there - I'm going down the same route myself ;)

    A little update on my A3, some of you will know the story of saving it from the scrappy on a last minute ebay special. Its been a long and expensive journey that still isn't quite there. Its not the cleanest example or the most special model ect but its mine and I can have the pride in saying that the engine has been fully re-built and tweeked by myself. For a more complete story check out my 'garage'

    cheers Ash.

    Not in the best condition, had a lick of paint in its time (but a pretty good job). Not planning on any real mods.

    Hi Nattie! When I bought the car there were standard xenon bulbs fitted. They are 4300K, but I replaced them with 6000k one. They are more blue but also brighter, cause the "daylight" is about 5500K so it is the closest to that You can get. And I think that blue light looks better when You reach somebodys rear bumper ;).
    But what You can see on the pics is light from my parking lights. To take good picture of such dark car in the night, shutter in camera has to be open for a long time so that gives that effect.

    think everyones already said whats what .but the car had the 10ks on when i bought it but the former owner didnt up the ballast and now and again one doesnt light until i try a second time . pretty sure the only reason it was done is because its a bluer light hope that helps.

    also its a seat leon cupra r splitter u have to modify it abit to get it to fit but well worth it wonce its done makes the front look alot meaner and a lower stance.

    Thanks Nattie needs to be lowered badly but i just havent got the money at the moment :(, Yes they are DTM's i use to have them on my old A3 and i like them....Didnt like them on the S3 at first but now theve grown on me but im still going for some black CH's when i but the lowering bits and bobs.

    Cars not for sale anymore, It was just there so if i could sell it for the asking price i would. Lots of interest and messing around though so now its staying and will get spoilt badly soon!
