    Well, I have been wanting to do this for ages, and just havent had the time and money.

    Well I have finally pulled my finger out and got it done!!

    Please excuse the few grubby bits on the car, just haven't had time to clean it properly as it was only finished this afternoon!

    Ohh, and the side skirts arejust for you n8 :hubbahubba:

    Its not complete yet, new wheels , spoiler and a few other bits left to do, but it is getting there now !

    Wow, wow, wow great job! I've been waiting to see these pics and they dont disappoint! Good job mate. Gives me an idea what mine will look like when I finally get the front bumper. I'm also fitting the splitter. To be honest I like the side skirts too.
    Bet you are really happy, :hubbahubba:

    Lovely car!!!!!!! Awesome transformation (you got to get yourself a gearknob, and fast!)

    I got almost all the parts - well the front bumper is still on hiatus - but anyway, looking forward to doing mine now!

    Looks :cool: - is that a FK front grille as it looks matt not shiney like the optics, matches the splitter well

    Yes, I agree a new gear knob is needed. It is on the list :)

    Certainly were. Very handy as the guy selling them was only 20 mins down the road from me also.

    That is very novel when you live in norfolk !


    Thanks for the comments guys. They are making me feel all warm and fuzzy!:friends:

    You have read my mind! Spoiler and new hoops next, then possibly lowering a bit more. I'm currently on eibach pro springs and dampers, but may drop a little bit more :)

    You fitted your badge yet Luke?

    Good luck is all I can say! You will need it


    Thanks for all the great comments people!

    Congrats mate, looks great! Mines booked in for 5th April for the S-Line conversion/paint work... I've got the FK-grille to apply to the s-line bumper - I'm wondering why you reference fitting of the s-line badge? cant be that difficult surely!?

    Oh, and did the re-inforcement bar need modding in order to fit the bumper or did you replace it instead?

    Looks very good, great turn around, side skirts aren't too bad, certainly not as bad as the S3 ones are gonna cost me £730 from TPS :undwech:

    Keep up the good work!

    I couldn't find a s line badge to fit the grill. I spoke to FK and also audi, and it seems there is not a badge that will fit. However, araldite and a file soon made one fit :)

    I have a spare badge if you are interested!

    My car wasn't a split grill model, so I didnt need to mod the crash bar. However, if your's is the split grill, I believe you will have to mod it . Dont worry though, it will be fairly straight forward to do. Just trim until the bumper fits!

    S3 pedals defo. Facelift rear lights defo. Rims defo . However, I am thinking I may go totally de-chromed, so may go black wing mirrors instead. Still undecided though!

    Bloomin 'ell N8, That is rather pricey! I went votex just to be a little different really. I do like the s3 skirts, but at that price :faint:


    Looking forward to seeing the pictures Luke. I know what you mean about the badge. When i first fitted the front end, I didn't have the number plate on, and it looked so good without. But I dont think mr plod would agree!

    looks nice apart from the wheels...look better on the DTM. get a roof spoiler and it'll finish it off nice.

    Looks great but the wheels let it down IMO (don't suit the car). Remind me of the smaller SE style wheels.

    Looking good scottie :icon_thumright: ...i did my sport to s-line conversion in Jan, but i've put off bonding my Votex skirts due to the cold!
    With it getting warmer now it's on the cards to be done in the next few weeks!
    How did you get on with the fitting... did you attach something to the bottom of the doors while the bond went off -in order to keep
    the skirts from rubbing?

    I cheated. My friends at the body shop fitted them for me. But I did see how they did it.

    Basically clamped everything up and used small spacers to insert between the door and sill to keep the gap correct until set.

    They did say they were a bit of bitch to get right, but the lads were perfectionist, and were chasing 1mm discrepancies !!

    Hats off to them though, They did a top job!

    Hi Scottie, car looks the business, i agree the wheels look superb.

    Can you confirm if that is a stock Cupra R splitter, and let know what it was like to fit? Really like it and would love one on my stock S-line... don't know whether it would go with the Brilliant red throu:think:

    As said ^^ it will fit fine and is easy peasy to fit. Half hour job tops.

    And I agree, It will/does look awesome on Red.

    Do it!

    Straight out of the pack and on.

    It is matt black, so I had a matt black detail put on the front to blend it in a bit.
