    Hiya I won't bore you with everything I've played around with on my car . I now want a fresh new look on the outside of my car . Need some ideas and links so I can start making purchases. I will post some pics of my car so you see what I currently have. Im looking to change the look of it.
    Would a whole new kit on it maybe give me what I want.

    How much would it cost to change the front as in lights, bonnet, wings and maybe adding side skirts and changing the rear to make it look newer. I wanna change the reread lights and also mirrors.

    I also keep looking out for a newer model of my car and seeing if it would be cheaper that way and move all my mods over but getting a quattro audi a3 2010 is a bit pricey.

    Might be easier if you have examples of what you want it to look like unless you are looking for any ole ideas ...

    I like the rs look but my car is only 3dr so dunno if it will just look tacky.. I've not seen a 3dr rs around my area. I don't mind the sline bumper just feel it needs to be lower and not so high up. I dunno where to start to look as I don't know my options.

    Face lifting isn't cheap, done a number of cars, what's your budget?

    I haven't set aside a budget yet. I won't spend any more than 10k though. Just want to get my car looking decent as I haven't spent any time really on the cosmetics side of things. Down the line I plan to change my seats and get a flat bottom all the little touches. I like some of these honeycomb grills but I would want my reg plate on the front aswell.

    wouldnt mind only spending about 1-2k on parts with the respray as in bumper/skirts/ bonnet wings if i need them then i would like the new lights and maybe wing mirrors , if i could keep the lot under 5k as like i said above i want a flat bottom and new seats ect touch up my car with other respray repairs

    You need to buy all the parts from a facelift car, bonnet, wings, front bumper, headlights etc...

    There are a few ppl on the forum who have done this and I can recall a full list of parts being posted somewhere. You will need to add a front number plate, either in the original position or to the side;

    You need to look at 8P3 S3 parts what are from 2008-2012's

    To get that exact look you would need

    A3/S3 bonnet
    A3/S3 front arches
    S3 front bumper
    RS3 front grill
    A3/S3 Bi - Xenon headlights
    S3 Side skirts
    2011 A3/S3 rear LED lights
    S3 rear diffuser
    S3 2011 LED Wing mirrors .
    Any Dual Oval exhaust tips .

    Will cost you a fair bit but all those parts would make your car look identical to a Facelift S3 .

    I would try Ebay and local breakers as they will have the parts way cheaper than Audi or TPS . You could also sell all your old parts once you have your new body sorted .
