    A3 1.8T With pictures

    Hey all,

    Here's my latest A3, I bought nearly 2 weeks ago but only got round to washing it recently and taking some pictures so here it is







    It is currently running with
    full milltek exhaust system
    Forge 007p DV
    K&N Air filters
    REVO Stage 1 Remap at 200BHP
    S3 Alloy Wheels

    Next steps I want to do is
    Alloy Wheel Refurb
    FMIC
    TIP
    REVO Stage 2
    Tinted read windows
    Possibly lower it, but I like the ride so not sure?

    If you want to retain the ride then go with Eibach Pro-Kit springs.

    Subtle drop and better than factory ride quality.

    Been looking at these springs, it quotes to lowers it 25-30mm. Is this right? I want it better ride and handling but not too low, I hate speed bump scraping and my drive is quite steep

    Sounds like the Eibach pro kit will be perfect for you then. See here for our prices for these:

    Audi - A3 8L (96-03) - Lowering Springs - GNJ Motorsport

    I have always fitted either Eibach or H&R springs to my own cars and can't recommend either enough really.

    Another mystery.....01 plate, yet the indicators are rectangular not square!

    Seems the 8L comes in many different versions, like the guy who has the intercooler side of he bumper (by the tow eye) blanked off, where mine was hollowed out

    550 cc Injectors / Milltek Exhaust Manifold

    Forge Silicone / Goodridge Hoses / EBC A/R

    G60 SMF / Launch Control Map

    Powerflex Black A/R / H&R Anti-Roll Bars

    Carbon Wrapping / 104Db @5400 RPM

    Not really a mystery, my last TQS was an X plate (facelift) which was the cross over. Y plate and beyond was facelift, meaning rectangular indicators etc.

    I'd hazard a guess that your was registered late then, as Dane's old S3 was also an X plate with facelift bits.
