    Just took another look at the pics (now larger on Internet Explorer at home)!

    Well done Sarah - Looks absolutely great. I'm liking the black/Blue theme going on too. Rings are fine so IMO!

    Hats off to you for the DIY - good stuff!

    Great job with the bigger pics Sarah thanks!

    Do you by any chance have a close up photo of your washer bottle? I`m about to do a washerjet retrofit and i would like to see how the pump is secured!

    Cheers

    Very very nice. Rear bumper and 09 clusters totally transform the rear end too!

    Once my student loan gets in I'll be looking to do this to my car, so look forward to some PM's :) haha

    I see Dave was a great help......At holding the camera.LOL


    Looks good in the metal, glad it was completed for AITP

    I spose the name WIDOWMAKER for the useless Audi jack gives a clue to how safe they are.:faint:

    really nice sarah... colour works very well with the dark accents... as Paul said... you need to get that gap a bit smaller and poss spacers then will look ace.... :icon_thumright:

    and you have balls (if thats possible) gettin under the car on an Audi jack... wouldnt do that myself... i seem to remember mine almost bending last time it was jacked on mine... :blink:

    Hiya you, thank you.

    I agree it would look better lowered and may well do in time. Already looking into spacers lol! Oh it never ends.....

    Didnt have any last time I looked lol, but yeh, know what you mean, but didnt give the jack a thought tbh!
