    S3 front fog lights questions??

    I have owned my S3 for just over a week now, i'm missing both front fog lights. I'm new to Audis and wasnt until I had a proper look over my car I realised it had an intercooler at either side?? I'm thinking of ordering some new fogs to fill the gaps just wanted to ask weather removing them is a done thing for extra cooling??

    I doubt it... they can only just cope on a std map, once remapped they are next useless tbh....

    The SMIC's are tucked up out the way but there is a plastic 'funnel' that drives air to the SMICs... having the fogs removed won't make that much if any difference to their effectiveness...

    Depends on what FMIC you use... Forge and both AH Fabs V1/2 are designed to fit without removing fogs... AH Fabs V2 use 63mm pipework and is big enough for big turbo installs
