Hey All,

Been a member of this forum for a while but haven't got around to posting any pics of my S3... had some work done to it over the weekend so thought now is a good a time as any to post some pics up.....

Before: (Standard)
All four wheels corroded and curbed badly by the previous owner....

Hope you enjoy....

I like the front, with the black grill, I miss my tints now, I don't know why took them off!

Defo worth the wait :)
Looks really nice mate, well done, just one thing though, change your wipers, get a set of aero blades on front and back, will really clean the look up for you.

those satin black trim bits look really good, way better than the faded grey plastic

Not entirely too sure what paint they used... Car was given to a body shop for the moulds and wheels, while they were doing those I asked them to paint the calipers for me as well....

Sanj and Sandip, sitting in a tree......

LOL...both cars look VERY nice...

Sanj, was going to say you dont need to swap the whole arms and everything, you can just get replacement aero blades, thats what I and many others have done, only cost about £15 for all 3 blades, have a quick look on Ebay, they have loads on there...

From memory, you need a 21", 19" and a 15" blade for yours.

Hope that helps.
