    Looks good, are your normal beams HID too?

    What wiring did you need to do to retrofit the front fogs?

    Yes I have HID dipped, main and fog lights. You need to run a positive and negative from the fog lights to the fusebox area, wire that in to a relay and get a 12v output from the light switch which will power up the fogs.

    Looks tidy that one pal, good move with the lights. Rear got to go first imo..

    ya might as well go for S3 facelift front end from a breakers for what you'd spend on lights up front.

    Good move on the lights dude, makes such a big difference to the back end, especially on a black car.

    Purchased an S3 just over two weeks ago now. Quite a jump in terms of quality from my previous car! Saving up to get it remapped and some BBS CH's. Need to take it to Audi to get the rust sorted on the bottom of the doors :(

    Thank you! I still have it, it's a Clio 16v mk1 (1.8 16v) with a Williams engine in it (2 litre). Currently cammed and a few other bits, the s3 isn't as quick or as enjoyable to drive but well it makes up for it in terms of reliability and comfort :p

    I've just sold my DC2 Integra type R, and between both this and the S3 the teg felt quicker (s3 was a pre facelift 210bhp model) but both very different beasts. Definitely you have to drive them differently, the Clio is similar to the Integra as you have to grab it by the scruff of its neck and rev the nuts off the car, whereas I found on the S3 the power is more effortless but still as potent a point to point car. It's just getting used to it I think!

    I miss my Type R though... :-(

    Car looks nice Gaz.... Ive been looking for an arm rest for a while...
    Where did you get the Mats from?
    The sub sounds 10x better then the original sub, very well made, and it neatly fits on the wheel arch so get to keep the limited boot space you have....

    Autostyle mats £75 always use them to be honest with all the cars i buy
    Sub wise im binning the idea of the andy mac sub and sticking 3x13" JL audios in there in a custom box instead.
    Arm rest is a must for me as is everything else the car has psec wise best i could find for under 10k
    Debagded the QQQQ on the boot tonight
    Will be binning the S3 badge off tomorrow night also i think!
    End of month itl be having new IVA511 TV/DVD and wheels powder coated in a fresh sparkly silver finish.
    Then next on agenda is two rust spots done under audi anti corrosion warranty and both sides resprayed and front end also.
    Then uprated brakes and lowered and big turbo conversion upto around 400bhp.
    Stereo finished and that will be the car done!
