    Well due to the thread started about me last week :ninja: Also the amount of people asking me, I thought I'd show you lot the latest pictures of my car and new mods I've had done, which since last time are:

    S3 Sportback sideskirts
    2010 RNS-E
    Air Ride
    Re-trim
    3M Carbon Wrap

    Mines the Sportback, my friends the B6.

    The seats look lovely (maybe not the colour I would choose). Looks a quality re-trim though!!!!! Who did it? Always good to know a company who do a good job!

    Not too keen on the stance though........

    That is simply gorjus!! every single little thing is spot on! :drool:
    Although one tinnnnny thing I would do is to debadge the s-line badges on the side.. Would look clean, plus i don't think you've left any s-line bits on :uhm:

    Did think of that before, but I have an S-Line badge on the grille, so I will leave it be.

    But in all fairness, they are VW alloys, so if I put audi badges on it, then I'm being FAKE aren't I, all the original badges are left on i.e. R8 brakes/RS6 Steering Wheel, RS4 seats and TT-S shifter, ties in with my OEM + theme if that makes sense?

    to me OEM+ just means using parts make the car look like they came out of the factory looking like that. if you're doing that then there's nothing wrong with changing the badges. get yourself some Audi centres :p

    As hard as this is to understand, but the VW badges on the VW wheels are staying.

    How does it drive on air suspension?

    Do you have settings to enable a decent drive as well as the `in the weeds` look?

    interior looks very well put togther, spot on infact. just dont really think the colour on the out side ties in. looks randomly low i reckon a few notches up and will look proportionally low instead of the all out decked look.

    thats just my opinion though mate

    N8 your car is stunning especially the interior not sure if I could pull off the purple wheels personally but as long as you can thats all that matters.

    The A4 cab is also very nice got a soft spot for the red hoods seriously considering one next for me and them wheels are to die for!

    Excellent job on the interior N8. You must be well pleased.

    Just to ask you a quick question, the only thing that annoys me a wee bit about my bucket seats is the fact there is not an S3 logo on the head rest. Do you think your re-trimmers would be able to carry out work such as this to add one, as l would be interested in getting mine done. Not sure the price of doing it could be justified though !
