looks nice any more pics???
Hey mate, car looks good with the TT Comps, I had them on my S3 when i brought it, then went back to the standard Avus's, still very nice though, had a set on my Mk3 GTI as well.
I love TT comps
my Aussie version, following installation of a set of Koni coilovers
it does emphasise how undersized, both diameter and width, the wheels are
and how it sounds with the APR kit installed
I do love the comps, just wish they filled those arches a bit better
A couple more...
Think i could do with some rear spacers tho?..
And an old one of the bay, ditched the splitter & carbonio is on now the rainy season's coming to an end...(fingers crossed)
Looks good feville,i have allways liked the TT rims.Whats the air filter you have mate?.
the one shown was a ebay special, i think it was from ashsiliconehoses but the silicone joiner and alloy bend are from my Forge Kona carbon CAI kit (the pic shown is my winter setup)
How did you find the DV relocation kit, any good?
Oh cool,im just looking into what air filter set up to get.As at the mo i have the oe box smoothed with a cold air feed.Was just thinking of gettong an induction set up or just get an uprated panel filter.Whats it like with the filter on?
Ermmm cant say i have noticed anything mate at the mo.i think it gives better life to the turbo as its giving cold air back dude.
As a photographer I should do some special shots really but until I do, heres a basic shot. Totally Stock and proud
with the filter as pictured is sounds great with the induction roar and loud dump from the 007p but its just sucking hot air in from the bay :-(
With the Kona CAI fitted the noise is cut with less roar but a nice pitch and a good dump sound still just no where as loud altho i beleive perfomance wise just fitting a pannel filter to a smoothed air box is the way forward!
When i first put the CAI kit on i did think i noticed a perfomance increase but that could just be noise playing tricks on me. car did make 160bhp before it was mapped tho with the addition of a cat back sys tho
Here is my S3
Not Realy had a chance to do much yet.
Got some new silicone hoses, aero wiper blades amd some silly repair jobs,
Fitted a Pipercross panel filter, have a Forge Recirc valve to fit and am having it Revo'd ASAP
From the pic in your sig I would've said no, but from the front... maybe 10-15mm would be :icon_thumright:
The TT Comps look great when shiney!
Edit: Try PW Motorsport for the spacers.
Yeah my sig pic is at a great angle
Thanks for the input i'll check out PW motorsport :icon_thumright:
Thought id share a couple of pictures of mine
random one i just found of an s3 in majorca last september
Mike those lights look ace!
Nice find Gav, an S3 with the same light brows as mine lol
I have been thinking for ages wheather to do my headlights like thsis. I want to but havent got the guts just yet lol just incase I dont like em but yours looks ace.
How did you do yours
haha didnt notice them well spotted
Thanks, was not sure it would look any good but with the ABT grill it looks pretty good. I heated the lights in the oven til the glue was soft and then i removed the lense. I removed al lthe chrome off to the bare plastic with the mrs' nail varnish remover and sprayed it black with satin paint. its nice cuz it is different still, makes mine stand out a little from the crowd. glad you all like
here are some more pictures of a3. (SLO)
heres some better pics of mine with my new wheels

Those look fantastic Gav, perhaps my fave looking S3 on here

i don't think i could sell it mate love it to much lol
I see where you're coming from
I really want a S3 or TT next!...i had a look last night and S3's seem to be going for more???.
Hi Gav, Found a fog lamp which should fit, it says a3 but iv ordered it before and had to send it back as it would not fit and i belive its the same as the s3 fog lamps.
Iv used the seller before and would recommend, hope that helps, stunning car btw.
thanks mike someone on here is hopefully selling me one, but if that don't go through will email the guy selling the one you see,
it does look like an s3 one :thumbsup:
