Well after Liam (tinter) had tinted my windows, I thought I'll get Ram (R44MS_K) to take a few pics[8D]. (Apologises: The car is not clean, as taken straight after tinting windows[:I])

As you from my previously thread, the modding bug as already kicked in[:p]

This is the car when I 1st purchased it

I wanted a Dolphin grey one too! Had to settle for Silver in the end.

Looking good, how about fitting the facelift S3 badges too as I see you have already changed the rear clusters?

Thank for your comments guys.

Faisal: I went for 35% on the rear windows and 50% on the fronts. The S3 windows are quite dark standard compared to the golf.

Sem: I was considering getting the new style badges. I been watching a poll on Audi-sport.net regarding what people prefer: the old or new style badges. I am on the fence at present, because I like the both.

Nick, that is looking SWEEET! Always liked A3's but the S3 is the daddy. I always wondered if the rear lights could be changed for the newer style ones and your piccies proved it can. Can the front ones be changed as well or is it a different shape completely?

Ray, I read on another forum that they can be changed with some fettling here and there, but I prefer the old style ones for the reason that the xenon light is on the outside next to the indicators and not on the inside next the grille on the 2001 on facelift models.

Ram: Yes, I must get round either posting or going to the DVLA and put on my new private plate.

S3NCY: Yeah it is a dealer in Palmers Green. AYCars, I had done business with once before, when I had a got a BMW from them (when based in East London), they provided reasonable good aftersales services.

MkIV Turbo: Hopefully will get a remap within the next month or so. Trying to decide between the APR, Revo or Jabba Sports custom remap.

Not gonna consider AMD mate?

Alot of the S3 boys from audi-sport.net go with AMD and i've only read positive stuff about them?

Sem, I did consider AMD, I din't think it will be worth paying and extra ?120 for the same power Jabba could offer.
