    Hi guys been on asn for a while now. Signed up when i first got my a3 juat for general information and inspiration. Been doing a few things to it now so i thought id make a build thread :) ...

    Got it as completely standard on 72k with fash. And got straight on with a mini detail...

    Sadly i had to purchase some tax and i bought the cleaning gear so i had to bite my lip and leave it standard for a few months.

    It now sits like this...

    looking good mate looks like some garage you've got there complete with microwave and washer!
    what about a cupra r splitter? and where abouts did you get them reps from? they look spot on!

    Yeah im thinking lcr spliter after the bumpers have been smoothed&colour coded.

    Lm reps are from bm autosport, i could recommend them enough for £550 with bbs caps and completr set of shiny wheels bolt and lockers.
    They are very very good reps, they even have a little indent the whole way around to enhance the split look.

    Luckily the bloke who wrapped my roof gave Me a few left overs of vinyl so im going to have a go at a few interior bits.

    Wheels are from the same place too haha, top bloke he is at BMA. Roof looks good. Spacers would be cool too, hoping to go wider myself but could do without the expense. Would rather buy a turbo :)
