Mine in the rain today:
an 8l with 8p conversion?! i have to say thats the best i've ever seen! id lose a lot of the chrome though imo.
Fahd, you got any more pics, be interesting to see what you've done!
how did you do such backlight?
i did'nt take the photo's a mate of mine who works for golf+ magazine took them these are some of the pics that may make it into my upcoming feature in the mag
was along these lines there were deffinantly 2 tripods of remote switch not so sure there was a softbox involved though
Here are a couple more of mine now ive got the rstt's on and de-chromed the grill surround...
Cheers man...just need to get that suspension sorted out now, lol...
one thing, I think the chrome grill would complement your car!
i think the de-chroming makes the audi and s3 badge stand out more, makes the front end look cleaner and less cluttered too.
also what offset are your wheels mate, and have you got spacers? only i've got some ready to go on and have no idea how they'l look.
I'm glad you guys like my car. I'm loving driving it. Yes superkarl it's an 8p conversion. Dani I do have more pictures, I'm hoping to start a project thread soon, detailing the pretty large amount of work that's gone into it/ going into it soon. I'm just waiting for the site administrator to change my screen-name (it's a long story), although I sent a request about two weeks ago and they still haven't changed it.
S T U N N I N G mate! Really really nice. What suspension you have on it to make it sit like that?
cheers for the comments, I prefere the de-chromed surround for the grill as it makes the S3 badge stand out more...ive still got another chrome grill surround if i should ever change my mind, lol.
superkarl: not exactly sure of the offset off hand, but they are original RSTTs so I think im right in saying the offset is 35... but I could be wrong and I hope someone who knows better will correct me, lol. when the car was in the garage they told me it had hub adapters on the back which must have been fitted by the previous owner so am not really sure how big they are, but other than that the car is compleatly standard. What wheels you got for yours?
i've got rs4 wheels same as yours, but mine are reps, got them cheap, there offset is et45, which means il have to fork out for spacers and bolts. using a wheel calculator they'l be further in by 7mm, so to fill more than the 17' avus wheels il be going for 20mm spacers on the back and 15mm on the front. just more expense.
your car looks very clean nice and original, i like it.
AP coilovers with no rear adjusters just the spring and plastic cups bonded onto the trailing arms
Heres a few pics of mine. The pics arn't great but they dont show that my wheels need a refurb lol.
I thought I'd put some pictures of mine up since my mate did a minor correction on it.
And finally a nice reflection shot
Pretty pleased with the outcome!
That's nice Dane. Mine looked like that yesterday. Then I drove it today and it looks like it's not been cleaned for weeks! Welcome to winter.
Here's a few pics of mine:
Took rear adjusters out of the coilovers today so now back end is sat like this:
Need to un-seize drivers side front coilover so I can match the front end to level it out.
heres some of mine with my new lights
some my new pics:
AshC09, what wheels are you running on your Audi mate? they look fantastic, what size are they too? as I'm very interested in buying a set of those for my Audi, cheers.
fahd, they are audi rs4 replica wheels and they are 18'', hope this awnsers your question..
Thanks for that mate, I'll have to look into getting a set, could you please tell me before fitting these wheels were you running smaller stock alloys? if so what was the difference in ride and road noise comfort like? is it particularly noticeable? also do you have any problems with the wheels rubbing in the arches? thanks again Ash.
Hi Fahd, To be honest, the ride is a little more bumpy, but its fine really, no problem with the arches rubbing, it handles a bit better imo, yes i was running the smaller 16'' stock wheels.. hope this helps..
Hey guys, im fairly new around here - Some awesome cars
Thought I would upload some pics of my A3 1.8T Sport What do u think?
Nice clean car. I would however realign your boot badges to where there supposed to be.
Have recentley joined and thought id post a few pics of my current and previous a3s all have been 1.8 t sports and all great fun... this is my most recent audi and it is nearly full s3 replica .
the kingfisher blue was my first audi which had been lowerd and had rs4 alloys aswell as quattro leather interior and induction kit , remap and dv and s3 mirrors. having trouble loading my pics of my audi a3 project car that sadley neva made it onto the road for very long due to head going on it due to bad water leak during the winter. i think the water froze and cracked the block or sumthn but im no mechanic.. ill try get pics up soon tho cus i worked hard on that car just to have to sell it for spares and repairs... it had near enough spec to my kingfisher blue but was unmolested and had no engine mods or lowering springs.
