    Lovely car, I really want to know if the new facelift S3 grille will fit the new facelift S-line.

    I know the pre facelift wasn't 100% compatible (it left a 10mm gap at the bottom) - can someone check ETKA and see if the facelift S3 grille has a new part number?

    4 DAYS FOR ME NOW!!!!!!

    Dont think the black does it justice to be honest.....or it might just be the dull wet weather the photos have been taken in.

    Tuesday afternoon mate, not counting today and the day I pick it up to make it sound closer. Boat docks tomorrow at North Shields so they have a few days to prep and sort my number plate out.

    On the subject of the "new" rear diffuser I know it is different but does not look that different to me on those pics, it does on other pics I have seen though.

    Trip the doctor may be in order, don't think you should be growing wheels.

    Still don't like them myself, like the front end though and don't mind the mirrors. Won't effect me anyway as I don't think I will be changing at the moment.

    The wheels do look far better in the flesh than on pictures mind, just seen them again this morning on the TTS.

    Those new wheels are growing on me now. I actually quite like them! I'm guessing that S3 was in phantom black because it looks very dull in that rainy weather.

    It will do, its a different shape at the top, not as rounded as the old one. So new bonnet & bumper would be needed at the very least.

    Sprint blue does look stunning. Just not sure the black optics suit it though.

    Totally agree about the black optics pack mate, the chrome just finishes the front off especially around the foglights which the one above does not have.
