    Westy mate, save yourself £50 and stick with the oem brake hoses, unless you're going to be taking your car on the track and doing some very serious and prolonged braking

    I've already got braided lines for my stanard S3 brakes but I need new ones for the Porsche brembos as the existing ones won't fit.

    The braided hoses I need have different sized bolts for the Brembos. If you can get a set of Boxsters like mine for under £200 then carriers £100, lines £50, pads £130, and your bro can refurb them cheap you'll be looking at a 4 pot setup for around £500.

    Yeah bud. I can weigh the box later and let you know the exact weight. Royal mail is the closest to me but It'll be about £15 each way with them.

    I just don't mention what's being done, unless it can be seen, and then I say it was 1/2 the price of what I actually paid for it! It's alot easier that way..

    Knowing what you know now Westy, if you were doing it again, would you still recommend that intercooler and setup that you went for? Also mate, what did you pay for the rear tie arms if you don't mind me asking? I'm assuming they are from S3dave?

    I've not fitted the FMIC just yet so dont want to make judgement just yet. The smaller ins/outs isn't an issue because 2 63mm to 57mm reducers was only £10 delivered then I can use all the other hose I ordered.

    The tie arms are from s3dave and you'll have to PM him for a price but they are a lot cheaper than anywhere else and very good quality.

    Dave's copied the Forge ones design wise and they are good quality. Dave owns his own Steel fabrication company so he's a handy chap to know. He's going to knock up some FMIC mounting brackets for me too

    What size is the pipework already on the car that the FMIC pipes connect up to? Just wondering whether it's easier to buy and source pipes myself or just buy one of the kits off eBay.

    The standard smic pipework is 63mm hence why I bought a cooler with 63mm in/out to try and keep it all the same. Obviously that didn't happen though not sure if the hoses are smaller on the A3 though.

    Yours are 63mm pipes, but you lose the fogs and I want to keep mine as standard looking as possible, meaning that I want to keep the fogs. I think all the ebay jobbies are 63m.

    Also Paul, the pipework that leads to the TIP, can it go along the side of the engine a bit more/rather then above it as it seems most A3's seem to have?

    yep mine does exactly that will get some pics up if got chance at weekend stick me head under and show you the route will look at the gap in mine as hine has loads of the crash bar cut out to fit it in the reason why the fogs have gone if you can mount it behind the crash bar 63mm will be fine.

    either that or put 2 sharp 90 degree bends next to the fmic so you could only have about 4" of pipe showing with the fogs covering the rest

    Cheers mate, that'd be great. Be glad when I've got it done and fitted, as there are so many variations and options that it's just a pain in the ass. It's a shame that the s3 setup is not the same, or I could have just copied Westle, sorry W3stys list of parts.

    Reesy I bought the entire S3 caliper, both front and rear, from a VW/Audi brake specialist on eBay. He had reconditioned them, put new pistons and seals in and powder coated them red. Good price mate. The 256mm disks are from black diamond.

    Syvo, does that mean he is able to assess the cost of
    body repairs? If so, we need to talk
