    For those of you who have asked, This is the bar on the front sline bumper. I've had it painted matt black to blend in with the lcr splitter.

    [​IMG]

    I also got the lower rear valance painted matt black to match ( and get rid of horrible platic fady look :) )

    Looks good but I will leave the bar on my S Line Blue (cant be exactly the same now can we). Like P5SND said, tints are a must (love mine) and Led Tails!!!! (Oh and xenons beneath the Laminex!!)

    Looking good though!

    As i said looking good,I did think about doing a black roof and still undecided.
    Ours are quite similar with the black look and i have now got rid of it all with the black audi rings.

    I don't think i would do your roof black though as it is such a dark colour to start off with
    that i don't think you would get the contrast you get with the lighter colours.

    But i love it how everyone wants to spend your money,me and my mates are just the same :laugh:

    looking great now, is that the FK grille? If so does the S line badge fit on it ok?

    Also i notice your Audi rings badge is way too high on the back! Get it painted black and put it back down where it should be, :)

    Scott love the car as you already know when i told you on sunday!
    Love the whole black on blue theme, car looks well aggressive. Alloys look much better than they did in chrome.
    I got quite a decent photo of them. Will send you it.
    Probably one of the best looking Sportsback A3 i've seen. Keep up the good work:thumbsup:
    Ohh do i see some of my photos in there haha
