    Not too sure what's under the bonnet, but it's definitely not an S3 as the badge that's stuck on the bootlid suggests lol. It had a bodykit of some sort, including sideskirts and front and rear skirts which are add on for the standard bumpers. And it had Mk5 Golf GTI 5 spoke rims(telephone dial ones).

    Not too my tastes, but so long as you are happy with it... so own up if you are about. :)

    Yep, seems to be. Not sure about wheel choice/bodykit but it looked tidy enough, each to their own though!. It was very clean so he obvioulsy takes a load of pride in it anyway.
