    Hi there,

    Been on for a while originally having a rs3 saloon in viper green on order but personal circumstances changed so had to downgrade somewhat but still happy with what I now have which is a 2014 s3 3-door in Panther black, when looking for an s3 I had a few options which I definitely wanted which was
    Pano roof
    Bang and olufsen sound system
    Super sport seats
    3 door
    Having browsed for a month or so this car appeared! Went to see and view it and had it purchased within a few days.
    First few days with it being home I’ve changed the front grill and added a spoiler extension and also changed all the interior bulbs to LED. Next things on my list are to go down the revo route and hopefully see 400+ at some point, no major rush. And also get a nice splitter, any other modification recommendations? Let me know!
    Cheers!

    Panther black to me is the best black colour I’ve seen on a vehicle, with that purple shimmer to it, nice one mate.

    Cheers! When I first spotted the car for sale it was just listed as black, but soon realised it wasn’t any old black when I went to view the car, noticed the metallic flake in it which in some lights goes purple and the odd time goes like a bronze colour, very happy with the colour either way!

    I mentioned it before on here when I detailed my TTS it was phantom black pearl and the colour absolutely popped which restored my love for black cars again. A good ceramic or wax coating and the car will be a dream to wash and maintain. I bought a sepang blue rs3 and reckon it will come up a treat when I get a chance to detail it in the spring. Enjoy your car mate

    Another Vote for the Maxton spoiler extension.

    Awaiting for my China Roof Rails first then the spoiler.

    Damn that's beautiful!

    Contemplating a black honeycomb grill with Quattro text at the bottom on my Daytona one, but not sure how that would work without it being a black edition!

    I have a set of side skirt extensions and rear bumper extensions for my S3 which I’ve never used.

    I have the rieger splitter on mine and the material doesn’t match. Let me know if the side skirts and rear interest you.

    @ANTS3 Love it mate! Where's the grille from? Oh and can you transfer the S3 badge over to the honeycomb one?

    Got if off a seller on eBay had like 6-7 in stock, it is a bit of a pain to change the grill over, but once it’s done it does look mint! And there’s no mounting point for the s3 badge but I’m going to work out a way to mount it

    Good to have at least two of you fitting them, just self tap into the sill, there’s no like groove for them to sit on, so you have to eye it up, and also if you have a 3 door you might have to trim them a little bit.

    Very nice indeed mate!

    What are you using for tints on the headlights? I installed fly-eye when I first got the car but took them off a while back.

    very nice job, but not a fan of the number plate on the side Alfa style, but each to their own.

    How much did you get your Turbo for @ANTS3 ?

    Car looks great was going to do mine very similar. I'm looking at stage 3 and not sure what route to go down.

    What stage you currently running?

    I got everything through my local revo dealer, at the prices stated on the website, and no stage running just yet, going to go from standard straight to Stage3 once everything is bolted on

    They’ve used window tint film, gone lighter on the front and a bit darker on the rear
