As some of you may or may not know, I sold my S3 and now own Turbo Paul's old 1.8T.

Alot of people remember this car as being a anniversary look-alike, so I thought I change the overall look of the car and make it feel more my own car.

I hope you lot like my work in progress and your comments are welcome (Good or Bad)!

I have fitted these temporarily units until I source an O/S OEM xenon headlight

Looks good mate.

I love the gauges in the dash, very nice.

If you dont mind me saying, US spec rears suit darker cars, better than Euro's, but thats just my opinion.

Dubswich: I had US spec lights on the car previous, I change the for the Euro version as it breaks up the blackness of the car. An to be honest I always preferred the Euro spec.

Very nice, [H] maybe a black badge on the front?
I have considered that, but may keep the silver badge to go with the headlights or even consider debadged the grille.

The pictures dont do the car justice really, I was well impresed at E38. Thought it looks much beefier with the R bumpers than before.

I think you should go black badge or debaged grille on the front though, would flow more with the bumper IMO.

Good work Nick. [Y]

Fair comment, personal choice and all that. Not slating your Euro's they look good, I just prefer the darker lights !!

That looks absolutely superb Cage!

Love the LCR front splitter.

Is it on Eibach coilovers or just springs/shocks?

Only thing I would change is the position of the front mumber plate - would look much nicer if it was mounted on the proper R32 plate holder [;)]
