    Looking for an A3 S3 rep, Jazz/Noggy blue, was on eBay a few years back

    No, after some research I think it was Cornflower blue. I was looking to buy it at the time but missed it sadly, just wondering if it is still about and if the current owner would part with it. If I had the reg I could do a check to see if it was still alive at least. I'll keep looking for...

    wrapping bumper inserts and door blades, anyone done it?

    I painted my front and rear bumper inserts satin black, only took about half hour to do including drying, a lot cheaper than wrapping!
