    Very nice what size are your wheels? They look like 18s

    Love the bumpers, are they s3?

    And the lights are quality was they a straight swap for old to new?

    The front splitter can be purchased - i only put it on as i found it for cheap £40 and stuck it on. But im on the look out for an s line bumper when ££ available

    Very nice attention to detail mat1987 love the mirrors with the indicators in, did you remove the indicators from the wings or is that how later models come??

    @syko what are your plans so far

    I want to remove the bumper strips and door strips and flush it all for a clean look and I'm looking for some nice side skirts, and toying with the black grill idea

    Anyone know the best paint for the grill ??
    I read somewhere plasticote is the best stuff for durability

    Yeh it's Scuba blue and really fell in love with the colour. It's a 2 litre TFSI petrol which is 197bhp, so I'm looking at getting it remapped and a stainless steel exhaust fitted possibly later next year. I'm thinking about taking it to a detailer to get a minor paint correction done as it does have some light scratches which will look mint then. Also both front alloys have some curbing so looking to get them done aswell.

    Sounds good @TomL83 mines the same in a quattro and want to end up with a stage three monster lol I've found a company online that will custom make a full stainless exhaust from turbo back and it's half the price of the milltech one can send you a link if you like ;-)

    I've done a bit of research and with the exhaust and map they should achieve somewhere in the region of 280 with a cold air In take, that will be first port of call for me then big turbo after brakes and suspension

    Cheers mate. Yeah she's on a full Airlift V2 Performance kit. Best thing I've done to it bar the map. Means it looks good at the shows but I'm not scraping over everything on a daily basis (lots of speed ramps round my house)

    Think it was about £2400 if I remember rightly. Been paying it off monthly so it's been easy enough on the wallet :)

    Fair play mate might have to be coilovers to start and
    Maybe go that way in the future, your stance is worth it mate it looks amazing
