    Rear anti roll bar recommendations?

    It may help a bit but will just depend on your driving style, if you are tracking the car, etc... I had H&R on my S3 which did make a difference a long with an anti lift kit for the front. Check out for prices for bars

    A lesson in engine mounts / advise please

    I had Revo engine mounts in my S3 and I thought they were brilliant - engine noise changed and felt a lot more secure changing gear and putting the power back on Something I haven't considered yet in my 8V but never say never

    Mapped s3's what mileage are you on?

    My 2007 S3 was mapped from around 20k miles and I sold it at 87k miles with Revo Stage 2+ and 372bhp with no issues - driven daily, all over ireland and UK Bar the obvious clutch slip but thats part in parcel with tuning - replaced with organic sachs clutch

    Remap ?????

    Depends where you to and your budget but its a well tried out process with many companies carrying out remaps successfully Personally speaking, I am Revo through and through, mainly because they are the best locally to me. I had my 8P at stage 2+ for over 60k miles with no issues what so...

    Which s3 exhaust for best sound

    I had a full Miltek resonated exhaust on my S3 - I thought it sounded great even with the resonated section. I think if it was non-resonated it would be too boomy If you have gone to the lengths of having the car remapped and stage 1 tuned then you may as well get the right exhaust - nothing...

    Remap Advice

    Having a dyno run is not essential but I prefer getting them to see where the car has come from and what gains it has made - however, a dyno run is not a true reflection on the cars power, it will just show you an increase. You can go to one dyno and get a result and go to another a few hours...

    I'm Back - 2009 A3 S-Line SB BE 1.8TFSI

    Since I got my 8V S3, progress on my wifes A3 has been slow but getting there Managed to finally get my hands on a set of pedals after being scammed on here by a scumbag member - easily fitted, as usual the accelerator takes a bit of wiggling to release: Makes a nice difference to the...

    S3 style silver wing mirror covers

    Aluminium style wrap as well, i have been quoted £80 for the pair to be wrapped but ideally I would like OEM What year is your car? The style of wing mirrors changed over the years 2007 - 2008: no indicator slot 2008 - 2009 and 2010-2013: the ends are different - as far as I know, in 2010...
