    Got a few things done last night, fixed my spots as they were wobbly and that, then redid the film on them as it was looking crap, fixed my cupra lip as it was pulling off, serviced my dv and got my UNITRONIC plates

    its FWD my bud, yeah its pretty big but it was designed to fit even my 16" spare wheel with no issues. Its s3 312mm disks that have been heat treated and grooved. cheaper to replace then 200quid per disk for the 330mm 2 peice disk

    hey guys

    been a busy month so far, had our annual DUBRUN and done some mods to the car.
    ill start with the dubrun.



    1st up its traditional that we all hook up the night before the run and tape up our cars with unique designs with blue masking tape.



























    now the drive down

















    and now the show and shine and the event on the saturday

    and continued













    obviously some drinking was involved the whole weekend











    and then we decided to go take some photos, these are only a few will get the proper ones at a later stage

















    next one will be the modding and dyno run

    and now the modding......

    when we were down at the coast i was very interested in seeing what figures the car does down there





    now reason for the run on the dyno is i live 1800m above sea level (as prawny says we are mountain goats) and i was very impressed with the figures as these are done on the wheels not on the motor so managed 230whp and 389nm



    and vid of said dyno

    UNITRONIC audi A3 1.8t stage 2+ dyno run at coast - YouTube


    next up was fitting S2000 filter

    air duct to filter (its just a temp one as i still need to do the air ducts for the brakes









    drained oil and replaced it with motul gear 300 ( thanks to prawn for telling me about it, and thanks to ASH at goldwagen delarey for organizing )



    and did a oil change of the motor to Motul fully synth as well

    next up....

    i took my 18's off and sent them in yesterday to get the stud holes drilled bigger and full refurb of them and fitted these 16's which made the car alot lower lol

















    next up is the stud conversion.
    the reason for this is i have 4 different sets of spacers from 5mm to 20mm and 3 different sets of wheels and to carry so many different bolts for the wheels is stupid!

    1st up is the stud its 90mm in total length



    cleaning the stud



    now to put some thread lock





    fitting the stud i used 2 nuts and locked them then turned it in







    with all of them done



    and a 10mm spacer on







    20mm spacers on the rear

    remove the link buy pulling back on the spring part



    now fit new shifter



    and fit back all the links





    and there you go done
