Racingline Mods

Some nice mods, its tough when your leasing like me, do you spend then spend again to remove everything before it goes back, plus keeping hold of everything already got wheels in garage, gonna be springs, exhaust and brakes at this rate haha

well i got shipping confirmation of my springs being sent out, and today i received the adjustable drop links from RacingLine. springs should arrive Tuesday i think.

collecting the car on Tuesday. I'm going down on the train on Monday and just saw in the news that they're doing repair work to the tracks which is awesome. was there not the last whole year they could've done this? :frowning: its like they waited for me!

got the drop links from progressive parts but came shipped from awesome gti , got the springs from awesome gti but were a factory order i think. anyway looking forward to booking it in to get done ASAFP.

I think the 12v covers were at least 5 bhp each
Thanks. Bit by bit. Thinking a big brake kit next.

Look good those, has anyone on here looked at the R600 intake and housing?

Yes me.
Racingline are currently developing a modified version as there is apparently a new pipe on the S3 in the way of the R600 air box.

They’re also doing an optional carbon fibre top cover. I’m waiting for it to become available, and I’ll be choosing the cotton filter option. Already have the foam oversock.

They should pay me to be the racingline ambassador

I’m considering the 380mm stage 3 brake upgrade they do too. Never modded my 8V too much and I’ve got the modding bug again! Especially having a lease car for the last 4 years!

Would be interested to know any sound difference with the R600 once you’ve got it on.

Looks the part too, which helps.
Yeah I’ve not modded a car in a while now, and now I’ve got the exhaust I may be falling down the rabbit hole!

I had on the 8V, no reason to expect it would sound different, but then again!
I’m expecting a little louder air sucking noise and occasional hiss. I think the turbo whistle is quite noticeable on the 8Y. Not sure if I could hear it on the 8V.
Not a fan of the turbo muffler delete though.
