    Seen a vid and a post on R-Techs page about a 445bhp S3 with a new FMIC (peron) which is apparently performing very well. I think its running a LO4XX? Just wondered if you were in here :icon thumright:

    Incoming Daveb Bbk - Anything Else I Need?

    My kit (TTRS calipers / AP discs) should be with me this week, hoping to get it fitted next week. The alloys I have are 18" TD Pro Race 1.2, so I believe I need a 5mm hubcentric spacer to be on the safe side, anyone got any links to places they have bought their spacers from? Is there anything...

    Picked up my S3 this morning + Build Thread

    I was active on this forum some time back when I had an A3 8L T sport, was a cracking car but I sold that on and moved up to a leon K1 which was stage 1 with an ITG induction kit. The K1 was nice but I had a bit of drama with it which took the edge off of owning it unfortunately. The car...

    What DV is this?

    Any ideas, had it fitted some time ago, maybe a few years I think :uhm: I'm guessing it isn't a 007p...? I have been away from these forums for a good few years and heard the lastest buzz on DVs (after reading for a few hours lol) is the 007p. To be honest what drove me here is...

    soundproofing has finished so i though i would share a few of the pics being german the A3 isnt exactly tin but did benefit from a few layers of dynamat extreme, other folks sometimes go for flashing tape (if you're doing the job on a tight budget), from my previous experience with that stuff...
