    Front grill badge

    I could do with replacing my front S3 grill badge as it’s a bit tatty. How is it removed ?

    Wheel spacers on 8p s3

    I have standard S3 alloys with HR springs and 15mm rear spacers. I get occasional rubbing over large fast bumps. Even when 4 up its only occasional. I've also removed the said screw. Personally I'd go 12mm if buying again. Tyre type also make a difference depending on the shape of the...

    I want some growl

    I bought a Milltek non res cat back system and fitted it today. Sound is spot on, just what i wanted and so much better than i anticipated. There is a nice deep note on start up which rises when revved. Under load it sounds awesome, very addictive. Youtube vids dont do this system justice.

    I want some growl

    How does it compare in the flesh to YouTube clips ? Resonated tend to sound almost stock on the vids I have seen.

    I want some growl

    I shouldn't have mentioned the R32 as it's clouding my original question. Either way what I gather is there isn't a mainstream exhaust manufacturer that have produced such an exhaust. Unless I go custom which I will look into.

    I want some growl

    4 pots can still sound good which is why I can't work out why the S3 sounds rubbish. I had a VXR Nurburgring with Remus exhaust which sounded mint. I've heard an awesome sounding Seat Cupra. Again 4 pot.

    I want some growl

    Its an exhaust matter. I have always preferred a bit of throatyness to my cars. The last one being a Mk5 R32 with non res Milltek. In a word.......Epic! My S3 sounds pants and while I would like a full BCS system £1200 is a non starter. My budget is £500 max so I've considered the usual...

    Alloy wheel refurb

    I enquired at Prestige wheels a few years ago. They were dear, around £400 and it was 3 day turnaround. I found they had a sh1t customer service too. Diamond wheels in Stockport once made an abortion of some alloys. Never again.

    Wheel spacer recommendation

    I have an S3 2009 model. I have 15mm spacers on the rear and there is slight rubbing with passengers when cornering etc. I have H+R springs fitted as well. I would recommend 10 or 12 on the rear, not 15. The front is standard.

    Alloy wheel refurb

    Some pics of the alloys once they had corrected the cracks. Not great I'm sure most would agree.
