    Ok so i didnt have a great deal of money but really wanted to do a few more things to the car so the joys of ebay helped me out. Let us know what you all think.

    1) 2010 rear bumper ( the smoothed one)

    [​IMG]

    2) tinted wind deflectors as i cant have the window open if it rains and this annoyes me

    [​IMG]

    3) new tax disc holder as old one was pants.

    [​IMG]

    4) Good quality thick mats toprotect the carpets.

    [​IMG]

    And a good clean so she looks nice

    [​IMG]

    So what does everyone think of my car then?. I was toying with doing an s3 front end conversion but i really like my front end now other plans include s3 interior with the rs4 front seats, s3 side skirts, uprated speakers and head unit, a miltec exhaust and 09 shape rear lights.

    As i said in the other thread, i don't like the front grill....just looks odd

    Other than that it's pretty much standard, but a nice example

    Well its got the badgeless grill, debadged and dewipered rear, wheels, lowered, remap and leon cupra R splitter i wouldent say that was standard. If you want the splitter mate brand new from seat £25 just takes abit of time to make it fit.

    I didn't mean standard standard buddy, was just saying that it's got some wheels chucked on as the only noticeable mod from those pics

    Good start and some good plans for it though

    This is just a daily driver so i dont want to spend silly money on it. I love the car and just want to make it as good a posible without going stupid as im hoping to get a evo x next year which i want to spend the money on. Id love an s3 but i think they are quite over priced. Saw somepics of your car aswellgood job mate itlooked really nice liked the brakes on it.

    TTRS setup goes straight onto an A3, will be up for grabs soon if you're interested?

    S3 front was a minefield of stuff, was a lot of money and work by a member off here in the end

    I dont mean to be rude, so please dont take this the wrong way, but why have you got S Line mats and tax disk holder, when from what i can see its a sport?

    Other than that its clean car mate! Deffo do the single grill conversion though, it transforms the front end!

    Like the wind deflectors may get some. Rear bumper looks good any more photos? Is it an s-line/black edition or just a standard one? As said in the other thread car looks nice and clean.
    Alloys look good aswell. How low are you?

    Says you dont want to spend silly money but those rs4 bucket seats are silly money lol! There a set on ebay with a few hours left at £1,500. Few of the guys on here have paid between £1,500-£2,500 for them. Neither is the S3 side skirts and front conversion... But good luck with the mods and keep us updated on how you get on.

    yes i have got the sport and some people think i might be gay because ive got s-line bits but ive got much better wheels than an s-line, s-line rear bumper so i just need the interior then it pretty much is an s-line. And dont worrie i wont take affence everyone has there opinion. And yes i know how much the seats will cost me but thats the most expencive bit il be buying on the car and if i decided to sell the seats id probably get near on what i pay for them. I was thinking about doing the single grill front end but that will cost £1k and thats more than im willing to spend if it was a case of just buying the bumper it would already be done.

    Oh and ive lowered it by 45-50 mm on eibach springs.

    Regarding the front end conversion grab an s-line front bumper off ebay there normally at least three on there. S-line grills are always on ebay. S3 bumpers and grills do pop up but most times stupid money though but do find the odd bargain got my bumper for £180 and new optic grill £150. Then got my bonnet off a seller brand new for £120.33 :) Bonnets also come up but are gold dust. May have to bite the bullet and buy directly from the dealer. Then just the fog lights and fog lights surrounds. S-line conversion alot cheaper than the S3 as you probably already know. If you do get the seats and decide to sell you will have a huge que of ASN member wanting to buy them lol

    I quite like the grille!

    Got any more pics of the wheels, what spec are they and the tyres?

    I'm guessing 18 inch BBS CH replicas?

    Well i wanted to get rid of all the badges on the outside of the car and i like the grill if we all liked the same thing we would all be driving the same car how boaring and its not like ive sprayed it bright orange or anything.

    As for the wheels my mates got some really good pics of the car il put them up when he e-mails them to me. They are BBS CH replicas 8'' front 9'' rear both offset 35 with falkon 215/40/18 there slightly smaller than other make tyres so they dont rub. If anyone is thinking about getting same spec wheels make sure you get falkon tyres if you dont want rubbing issues.

    £550 with quite good budget tyres, balanced, decent vavle caps and all new wheel bolts and that included postage. I know budget tyres and good shouldent go in the same sentence but they were actual quite good. Only reason i changed to falkon tyres was due to a puncture.

    Um to all the questions wheels came from Reevawheels.co.uk/.com cant remember there also on ebay but if you ring up its cheaper. And the wind deflectors are made by team HEKO i got them from a u.k dealer off of ebay they were £22 plus £6 delivery and came within 36 hours of me ordering them so was pleased with postage times. To fit them you just put your windows down and they push up where the window goes it the window seal. They are perfecly held on only take a minuite either side you do need to be carefull tho you need to bend them abit to get them in but thats so they fit tight. And no they dont fall out if you put the window down. A friend of mine has had the same ones in his civic for two years now and never had a problem with them.

    Oh forgot to mention they also do a four peice kit for the sport back for the same price.

    And my 2010 bumper i also got off ebay for a seal £40 but then was another £120 to get the parking sensor holes filled in and sprayed. I got it stupidly cheap tho others ive seen on there go for about £80 but def a worth while mod back end looks so much better. Ive always hated bump strips on cars so wanted rid of it off the back.
