    Need some black wheels now mate, and maybe an inch bigger. Thumbs up for not following the crowd, it looks very well done.

    I think i'm beginning to understand why Audi didn't make a 3dr RS3. The front bumper just looks too much for the smaller/shorter body. Really needs 5 doors, imo.

    Good effort though.

    It just needs some width to counteract the length of the front bumper. Get some RS4 style arches and widen the track and you'll be on to a winner.

    This thread is so funny, I would just like to announce, I've also upgraded to the same bumper. Here is my car before:

    I thought one of reasons people pay a premium to buy an AUDI is because its exactly that, premium.
    And that the performance flagships can be quite subtle.

    I understand the tasteful swapping around of OEM and/or subtle approved or affiliated parts such as Votex/MTM etc..to personalise your car.

    So I dont get why you would fit a `snarly` aftermarket front end, and then put the badges from another car on it?

    Its neither subtle or premium??


    Or.

    Am I just too old for this forum?

    cheers mate darker wheels are on the cards eventualy, i like to do my own thing n hate been a sheep n having the same as other people


    cheers mate future plans should make the total look alot diffrent
    these are my future plans mate, 9.5 j rear wheels and 8.5j front wheels with archers flaired and rolled to suite

    tbh mate there isnt a huge diffrence granted they are diffrent , mainly mine is a more beefed up version, and imo i havent messed it up and have made it alot better, there are way to many s-lines and s3's arround thats why i wanted something diffrent and as i metioned before like to be diffrent from the crowd and like thing to stand out

    everyone is entitled to there opinion and obviously not everyone is going to agree, and a value peoples opinions, but im over the moon with it and thats all that matters

    Head on the car looks stunning mate, but from the side the width looks a little off comaped to the back wheel. I think the bumper needs to come in abit bit more. Seriously considering this upgrade myself.

    Your car mate, but for me, thats horrible, I think you've made a good looking car look like a essex boy racer, not saying with snobbery either, it just doesnt look right at all, all IMHO.

    100% behind these comments, not even same ball park.

    LMFAO had me on the floor, sorry man but thats cracked me up lmfao.

    No mate, but are you still wearing the kini's.
    For me, the solar orange car was always my favourite with black trimmings & an S3 SB would be great, buttt thats really left a bad taste in my mouth, sorry Chris, but acid dont agree with you fella :scared2:

    I respect all mods because if you like them, then that's all that counts. I must say that Audi did not make the RS3 grill to look like that for a reason ;)

    10/10 for doing your own thing.

    You can see a lot of the front tyre tread, it seems all out at the front, and a bit thin at the sides. Do they do a side / back kit to balance things out?

    A full kit is available but the rear is horrible and the sides are too big, like u say tho hopfully by end of the year I'll have 9.5 j rear wheels and 8.5j fronts and Flaired and rolled arches to suite .

    I value all opinions but at the end of the day oem + has been done to death and I like to be diffrent and try thing others wouldn't

    I think the reason I've tended to stick with OEM styling is because of the way it integrates so seamlessly into everything else.

    I've only ever gone out on a limb with one car, the misses VW Lupo.

    When we went to collect it from the local VW dealership it looked hideous!:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Hated black plastic bumper bits / arch gaps / alloy wheels being so small, so I had it sent to RSD in Daventry the day we collected it and they offered me some styling options for it. One option was a Caractere body kit or Zender grille kit, and neither seems to integrate well with the car, so we just ended up having the existing bits sprayed, new wheels, lowered and some basic tweaks to finish it off. We then had OEM rear spoiler fitted just to sharpen back end up.

    It's as extreme as I was ever prepared to go, but it's put me off doing anything since bodywork wise. Ironically whilst the wife preferred the way it looked in the end, the ride was catastrophic, but thats another story. This was back in 2001, so it all looks a bit tame by todays standards!

    Yes but the point is Warren, you have IMPROVED the look of the Lupo, not made it 10 times worse!

    It needs an alcantara engine cover to finish the look.

    I'm thinking of getting that velvet quilt on my engine with a nice bit of string to the hottest part of the engine.

    The bodykit looks nice on the Black A3 but it looks half done, which makes it not so nice, like theres something missing, beside the 2.5t beast.

    Its only the Asda/Macdonald's car par pikeys that like this stuff. Who else is going to be surprised that a barried up car covered in tat is actually a tractor engined hatchback?

    That orange thing is just hideous, it makes my eyes hurt.
