The entire reason we bought this Audi A3 in 2007 was because of the Rieger catalog picture of the red A3. Seeing how that cars stance looked was truly something that impressed us. After spending some slow time adding the bits and pieces to make the car ride well and have power, it was time to complete the outside package.
Having some great power and handling mods from StaSIS Engineering, Forge Motorsports Intercooler Neuspeed, K&N, Agency Power, JIC Cross suspension, IForged Monoblocks, Michelin PS2 Tires, Status Seats, and Rotora brakes, we also added Riegers complete body kit to the car. The full front bumper requires the use of a OEM Audi S8 grill. The grill was completely done in flat black to match our flat black IForged TE-10 wheels. The front bumper features provisions for the factory fog lights and includes mesh to give it an aggressive look. The sides of the front bumper have aggressive vents which we left flat black as well.
The side skirts feature a carbon look finish that we decided to keep like the catalog picture. These side skirts are not bulky and fit well to keep the same lines from the front bumper. The rear skirt replaces the OEM piece and allows for a dual exhaust setup. We modified our Agency Power exhaust with titanium tips to feature a complete quad tip setup. The rear also has mesh to keep an aggressive look. The car as a whole is MUCH lower which makes for interesting movement in parking lots with speed bumps. The car quickly turned heads with the upgraded exterior.
More recently, we added the Agency Power upgraded aluminum Paddle Shifters which give much more reach and ease of shifting on the DSG transmission. To keep the tunes pumping, we installed a DICE iPod integration kit and Diamond Audio subwoofers with amps. Our last modification before our magazine shoot is some custom Status Laguna GT bucket racing seats. These seats are all black leather and have red stitching to match the interior.
