    IMG_0782.JPG Bought the above around 2 months ago and have to say really loving the car. It's only the 1.8 TFSI so not big power but it goes OK when you need it to.

    Love the black bits that go nicely with the Red but like my cars to be a bit different from the norm and have done a bit to change the overall look. Will not be to everyone's taste but I have trialled stuff (some of which ultimately I didn't like) and listened to other comments from a previous post to end up with this - won't be to everyone's taste but I am happy.

    First off - did the front (black circles) and changed to a European style plate holder and finished it with a carbon lettered plate from www.number1plates.com - really pleased with the finish and very good quality

    Next - got the secondary centre console insert (no image as plenty posted on another thread) what a really good edition and fantastic service with very quick delivery)

    Also fitted a new gear knob that matches the radio buttons and looks soooo nice as a contrast to the black interior http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261779283557?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    Played with a few colours and stickers for wheel caps. valve caps and Audi decal and ended up with this. Decided to paint the calipers black with white decal - used the wheel sticker size of decal as I think they suit the curve of the caliper and their size better fits the small caliper body. Decals from http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271304496472?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT.

    White decal on the wing mirror to give a bit of contrast - tried a black one but it didn't look as good so will stay with the white and also changed the silver s line badge on the front wings to black

    Also fitted 12mm spacers to the rear wheels only and think it looks better with the slightly wider rear wheel stance

    De badged the rear and again black circles with the European style plate and carbon lettered rear plate

    OVERALL - pretty happy with look - can't decide whether to tint the rear light clusters.

    Finally - is it me or is Audi paint made of chocolate - found quite a few stone chips that have been touched in ???
