    My answer to 3" intercooler piping and fogs

    So I ditched the std fogs - ( free to anyone who wants to pay shipping from Dubai ) and closed off the lower grill and fitted some led lights. Its wrapped for now, thinking about making a proper carbon fiber lower insert same as my setup.

    i guess you will know this but in the second picture your bumper is bulging out and twisting.

    are you going to get the bumper on properly?

    The first time i put an intercooler on my a3 the bumper was like that and it didn't take long for it to pop the bottom half of the bumper off luckily i wasn't driving or it could of ripped the whole thing off.

    I do like that, personally, o would spray the cooler black to keep it stealth and not as obvious
    Word!!!

    My A3/Martys Golf would smash that, and this guys £7000 GT9743 supercharged love machine.

    I'm still pondering about spraying the cooler black. It's just it gets so hot here and the heat soak from being parked in the street is bad enough.
    If you leave a spanner on the concrete/tar floor, in the shade, it gets to hot to pick up in 20 minutes.
