Ok so I finally got off my **** and started to sort out my new bumper which I brought off A3 Turbo(Jason) It had a few dinks and scratches and the biggest prob is the fact its Silver and my car well isnt!! So I gave it to Byzan A4's son to do a "college project" (cheap labour!!) and here are the results so far............
how it started

I will do matey got a few bits to put on now. Eibach springs whith OEM S3 shocks so it will be a little lower but not slammed. Chrome S3 mirror caps, 312" frount brake set, 17mm rear anti roll bar so should reduce the cars tendancy to understeer and make it more neutral without it being too harsh. My gadges are going into my blank switches on the centre consol by the hazard switch. Bit of a bodge job but I wanted them to be a bit more inconspicous. Oh and I finally got a centre arm rest too :) So all in all not bad considering I was'nt going to modify her atall!!! Meh thats what its for isnt is??!!!:whistle2:

That all the mods planned? Should look great when its all done. Lol haha same here i was like not going to mod. And already have a list which needs to be done in the next 4 months. New bumpers, lowering, exhaust, leather seats etc etc lol. Not good when you go in your wallet and your short on cash ha. But still worth it once all done :)

i heard those type of bumpers take some fitting as the normal A3 wings are not as wide as a S3 so they dont quite fit smoothly?

I'd have a punt, keen to find out what my car would run (low 15's I reckon)

Can we do what the slow aircooled cars do and do bracket racing instead of heads up please?! :)

I am 2wd so a different class to her, so luckily even if she is faster ( doubtful,once i set the Racelogic properly) I still have an excuse


I meant reason. PHEW!

Bracket racing?? where you basically guess a time your going to do it in and whom ever guesses right wins??!! Nope we will do it propper like lol


Bracket Racing - invented so people with slow cars think they're good ;)
 
That front end looks a beast. I'm jealous.....looks an ace job there.

S4 fogs wont fit, we borrowed them from my car and for sh*ts and giggles we tryed the A3 fogs.
so we assume they are S3 ones ,but we are going to have to wait to see if we can borrow one or a pair to see if the line up or not .
