Post Pics Of Your A3/S3 8Y In Here

Love those wheels mate. What size are they?
I’m sort of regretting the 19s on mine. Should’ve got some nice 18s I think…

I had the 18" x 8 x 46 and liked the design but they looked really small to me, the new wheels are 19" x 8.5 x 45 they still don't look big but better than before and the extra width really fills out the arches better, I was gonna put spacers on but don't think it needs it now. I put eagle F1 Asy 5 tyres and haven't felt any diff in ride quality from the 18's with Pirelli. All personal choice mate but I prefer 19" think they suit car better

Yeah agreed the stance of the cars is much better on 19s. Maybe it’s by Bridgestone Tyres which aren’t the best.

Lovely design those though regardless.

Road noise is quite high. Although could be the roads near me being s**t!

I tried a few tyres on my last TT, hankook from factory, Michelin PS4's and the eagle assy and I found the Eagles best balance of comfort, noise and all weather use, yeah the PS4's awesome in dry for grip but all-round for me (no track days) roads in Manchester and **** weather happy with the Assy5

Duly noted, just need to burn these up now!
Yes Manchester roads are pants!

Collected my new S3 Saloon Vorsprung today from Brighton Audi. Absolutely love it. drove back home (approx 6 hours) and was fresh as a daisy when I got out. Only had time for one pic at the dealers.

yeah I agree especially on lighter cars, and always thought I would deff get it done as soon as I got the car, since I've had it I've kinda got use to it and think the contrast suits the black colour, but 10 mins later think I'll do it haha
I'm in the same boat, on the A3 Sport / Black coloured pics on internet, in my mind I will do it. Then the other day I saw in the flesh (not mine yet) another A3 sport in Black, and realised, it looks quite nice actually with the light coloured vents, and the standard LEDs in real life looks like they are tinted a bit (which looks cool).

yeah its a tough call definitely agree it suits lighter cars and dark too but on black/blue it is a nice contrast and highlights the lines of the car, might have to get the black electrical tape out try one side and compare haha

ooh electric tape didn't think of that, was tempted to tape a bin liner or black cardboard cut to size

Was all down to price. Doesn’t matter to me where I get it from as long as it’s the best deal.

Nice. Like the S3 badges matching the brakes.

Had yellow callipers on my laser blue golf GTI a while back. Nice combo

White is definitely the colour for the 8Y going by the photos on this thread

You get this done at ultimate customs mate? I'm booked in with them to get RS3 fully de chromed and coincidentally calipers done yellow lol. They did a great job with yours

That is sick. How much did it cost you for the wheel spray, brake spray and the dechrome? Belter job that mate looks mean

Thanks very much mate, massive difference! I got it done at 2 different places - £600 for dechrome roof & spoiler and i was £300 for alloys and brakes
