Agree with PP (apart from the FMIC, it's just the radiator!), looks like there's just a gaping hole in the front of your car. Needs something to break it up a bit. Just my opinion though, hope you like it!

I'd personally go back to a silver audi badge. Other than that. Quite tidy!

Looks like someones removed your grill,need rings coloured or back to chrome.I saw an A3 with an ABT grill which was all black but it carried it off as it had a chrome ABT badge on and was a lot smaller grill but yours is too big but hey it's your baby and beauty in the eye of the beholder.

Nutkin, how did you get the rear badge off? I was thinking of doing mine matte black last weekend but had enough of a battle taking the A4, SLine and quattro badges off so didnt even start with the rings!

Looks great :icon_thumright:

I bought the badge from an american on ebay for a tenner or so. To remove the badges i have a special trim removal kit, which i bought that is basicaly a set of mini crowbars made of plastic, the plastic is softer than the paint so doesnt scratch so i can ram it under the badge and remove it sooo easily.

My trim kit is like this, i used to compete in audio DB drag and such so i had these from my instal days for removing trim in the car without marking the plastic. Very useful.


Is that a quattro or S-Line badge on the right hand side? It looks red.....?
pjmspeedy used to have some, I don't know if he still has.

Its a quattro badge, cause of my theme i had a company knock up some custom quattro badges written in red with a black background. one on the front and the back.

Yes Nutkin, looking good loving the blacked out look tell me the chrome trim along boot is that easily removed to re-spray/reinstall???

very easy to remove, very fiddly to replace. theres clips at the front and they break so very easily.

Would recommend the trim removal kit above, makes it very easy to remove without scratching the car.
