    Dont like these either. If they made them look like the faclift ones but with LED's theyd look nice. But these look cheap, ive seen them on a couple of A3's and let the cars down really

    Have to agree, standard facelifts are the way forward. Some cars just don't suit LED's. Only those where the factory decided to add them as a facelift look right

    You've done some decent mods - I'm pretty sure this wouldn't be one of them!

    They look ok on this one from the audi day at castle coome, but it was stipped out, had a black roof, bonnet etc and seemed to be acceptable:

    that white S3 was in redline a few months back and he ended smashing it up on a track in germany, nice motor.

    i like the LED lights on that white S3, i wouldnt mind them on my black S3 to be honest

    it does look good, although gotta agree with HTC!!

    ah is that the S3 that crashed.... didnt recognise it.... certainly done more too it i think from memory.....would love to have the cash to have the S3 primarily as my track car (even though there are better options before you all start:eek:)

    I quite like those lights and the fact that no one likes them makes them even more unique for someone that is brave enough to buy them...

    Its good to be different!

    yeah its good to be different, borats thong was brilliant, havent really worn one to work yet though, happy to keep the unique label seperate for now....some things should not be done..... if you want a corsa go buy one instead of making an A3/S3 look like one
