cheers nomis i have got gloss black wing mirrors to go on waiting for them back from a mate then the front splitter and the rear valance are also going gloss black

toying with the idea of having the rim protectors colour coded to orange might be a bit OTT though

still think i'd have wing mirrors orange,but defo agree with splitter and valance gloss black.I would leave rim protectors as they are.

Oh my! That looks absolutely tremendous!!! Mirrors, diffuser and front lip will look great in gloss black, but I personally wouldn't do the rim protectors in orange, TBH they look great exactly the way they are, breaking up the whole black wheel thing and giving a bit of definition between wheel and tyre. Exhaust, AP brakes and KW's are the absolute BOMB, ..not forgetting your grille of course, lol!! Love every bit of it, well done Fella!! :wub: xx

beautiful car! and that colour is an absolute head turner!
i agree with the black mirrors rather than orange.
that exhaust system is gorgeous! and top quality work on the rear diffuser! looks just perfect.
if you want orange near the wheels i would say get the centre caps orange rather than the rim protector.
also some subtle tint lamin x on the headlights would look good.

lots of serious work has gone into that car...

i'm seriously considering it i have just ordered a new car my S3 was never really what i wanted don't get me wrong it is a amazing car and have loved every minute of owning and modifing it but it's not what i want and you only live once so ive decided to have the car a i really want even if its for 6 months and i then trade it in, my problem is i have no idea of the value of my S3 been told it should be worth about 25k

Big thanks to AMD for sorting it all out.

Good to hear that.....it was a great evening out,and a pleasure to meet you and your folks as well as giving the cars a bit of hoof.
Mine is staying as well(but I think I'd always planned to),but is getting the suspension revised,and a larger set of wheels and tyres.....you'll love having a BT kit on that car,and it makes a huge step from Stg2+.
