    Yeah looks ok,I would have left the badge silver and blacked the background.

    Surley the 10Ks give out no light?

    We had to change to 4300 from 6k to get decent output on our TQS

    Sorry, But I simply have to agree 110% with BYZAN_A4 that Audi badge should not have been blacked out ! blasphemy !

    Personally it matches the chrome surround of the Grill, simply add chrome around he number plate and some round the front spoiler..........now that looks better !

    Interesting colour - I've not seen many of them before!

    I had the TT rims on my first A3. :) Nice car.

    Wrong size of tyre for the wheel IIRC and if you go lower than 40mm, I would get shares in 'Sumps R Us' as you will start eating them...

    I also have to agree with other posters, blacking out the rings isn't a good look (unless you de chrome everything then its passable) and you sure you are running 10k HIDS? driving at night must be quite scary!!

    Quite like the colour of the car though, interestingly different as Jim says...

    I think chroming just looks tacky all together, you could just spray your grill surround to make it look better though. Is it a very dark green ?

    i dont think the blackout grill looks too bad but then you need to blackout all the chrome. Car looks nice mate. well done. each to their own.

    Looking good mate, as above tho' black out the surround as well as the rings, will look ALOT better.

    Also the tyre size is incorrect, you will need to go for 225/45/17 as too keep the same rolling radius I believe.

    Oh and finally as Mark says, change the 10k's to 4300k or even 6k, as you will get so much more light out of them.

    Not sure if you know or not, but it actually works the other way round on Xenons, the higher the rating the LESS light output.

    Thanks alot for the comments, ive got a badgeless grill now anyway so its ok.

    1st of all the hid's are realllyyy bbright and they light up nearly the whole road so i dont know if you guys are taking the piss or being serious.

    ALSO, i got polished TT competitions yesterday...put them on...i already have 40mm lowering so the back sits nice but the front is still abit high...but the car looks high infact its quite low with these wheels on as its now 205/40 instead of 225/45

    Im getting spacers sometime this week aswell...but yea it looks alot better with the tt competitions and badgeless grill now..

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Yea mate, im on the look out for coilovers now, springs are no use it was a big mistake.

    Yea you are actually quite right about the hid's but there we go, cant just throw 50 quid in the bin.

    Progress atm: Slamming
