    I agree that having no sensors look better, cleaner lines. That's the reason I dind;t tick then wehn I orderd my sportback but I do think Audi parking sensors don't look that bad. They are nice and flush and painted. Most other brands have big black pimples sticking out, now that's nasty!

    Yeah & when you/mrs reverse into a wall or car you'll be saying oh I wish I was a girl, lmao, but seriously I've just done the oem fit & they're hardly noticeable atall when painted & even less visible on the s3/sline as they're almost half the size of the older 03-05 ones so cant see why they would look ****, of course only IMHO

    Looks white to me!???

    I'd keep the wheels but get them painted bright red, I think it would be risky but possibly great! :arco:

    I'm afraid that if you carry on this route of modding this car the way you are Alex, I shall be forced to find out where you live and steal it.. :sly: :drool:

    On a serious note, I would go with the Speedlines mate. As they are slightly lighter than the standard rims and once you've mutiplied that by 4 and removed all your other bits, you'll have a nice few kgs removed from your kerbweight. My rims are nearly 5kgs lighter on each corner and you can notice a difference straight away. Plus I have removed the rear seats on occasions before in a few of my cars and that alone makes a big difference (especially when you a Milltek, as the sound is worth the removal alone ;)).. Also the Turinis are lush rims..

    Anyway, that motor of yours gets a big fat :thumbsup: from me.. One more thing though, can we have a closer pic of the red buckets please? ;)

    They're just covers. OK, flaming expensive, extremely nice looking covers, but they're still the std S3 buckets underneath. Now those that N8 posted... Where do I sign?

    Now I'm really confused, you buy this really quite expensive car and begin to mod it in what can only be described as an 'individual' manner and then you tell us it's for sale on your website??

    Are you bored of it already?

    TBH i think you may have issues with a small battery, there is so much electronics on a car now that needs power. You may end up having starting issues. Do you have coming home lights, the xenons draw so much power, ive had a flat battery a couple of times when working on the car and not having it running.

    lmao, yeap a regular jack nicholson I am & why the hell not, better than being a miserable ***** like many I see around this country, if you cant laugh at these things then you've got no hope, lol

    Anyway rear heated seats is an option on 8P's as I've got, never heard of an option that an S3 cant have, wiring is probably for fuel tank sensor etc no as thats where its going into I think, unless the rear seatbelts have a warning system aswell which I doubt but never know, have to check the latest schematics

    & leds eat very minimal power its when the xenons are on, but guessing if coming home is the leds now then not a problem but think matts just saying watch yourself with xenons on at night auto mode as that'll flatten in minutes as I had same issues when working on car & they came on auto, dead within minutes when not starting, damn things eat power like anything
