Good progress, love the rear lights, was the facelift hard? Are you a pro painter? Get that s line bumper on asap, also imo bi xenons are a must for facelift models.

Wow nice, can you get a nice finish like that with 2k rattle cans or would you need a gun and compressor?

Yes skirts would top it all off nicely. I'm finishing off and fitting my skirts this week. You thought about maybe painting outline of s3 diffuser grey to match wheels to it stands out! You payed good money for that shame if no one noticed it

I've come across this thread after reading the sportback inspiration thread and love the look how it's coming along especialy the facelift as I'm looking at doing it myself in New year

What year parts did you facelift to ? And was it bonnet, bumper and wings or more hidden bits

Did you use the original bumper that was already on your A3 to fit the diffuser and valance or did you have to get a new upper part too?

Great Thread btw:thumbs up:

Which bit is the cartridge?

Yes really. I'm not a mechanic or anything I've just learnt the few things I do know from reading and asking questions, hence the question, but never mind.

Sorry but I thought it was easy to spot as it's the new shinny bit and I show the old cartridge in one of the pics, but never mind

Can't see the pictures mate...I asked purely on the text you'd written :)
