    The New One!!!

    I've finally done most things I wanted to do to my new S3 so thought it was about time to post a pic for everyone to see!

    Looks spot on. Love that colour.

    Are those OEM RSTT's or replicas?

    Al they are OEM's it was one of the managers cars at the dealers so when it was ordered it came with a load of extras I suppose cause he wasn't paying for it!

    It's a really good picture. Good for comparing OEM's with Replicas. Really shows off how dished the OEM's are. Cheers Jam.

    JamS3... Nice car, that's the only colour I'd think about changing mine for!

    do you just have the eibach springs with OEM dampers, how did it change the way the car feels chucking it about with just the springs?

    Re: The New One!!!

    Yeah I've just got the springs on. The Eibach ones don't really change the ride that much, just a bit stiffer. More cosmetic than anything really as it was sitting too high on the 18's with standard suspension!

    Re: The New One!!!

    Just had my Bilstein shocks and Eibach springs fitted, looks like mine sits about the same as yours, was getting a bit worried the fronts didn't lower much.

    Why are my Eibach's so high compared to you guys? It's not fair [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    I am liking the car and the colour though. Great choice [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Agreed, it does indeed look very nice. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Out of interest, how much (roughly) are a set of Eibachs and Bilsteins fitted for the S3?

    (Had them on my old Impreza and was well pleased with that set up)

    Very nice car!

    I need to invest in a set of RSTT's for mine, they improve the look of the car so much!

    Alright Jam - been busy since I last saw you eh!

    How did you get all those mods past the missus [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img]

    I can picture it now, "its only 25 for the Remap and 10 for the new suspension, love honest they're on a group buy on the forum" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]


    As I said the other week, it looks really well. I still miss my S3 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Re: The New One!!!

    If you look at the pic of JamS3's car and mine, is it just me or do they look about the same height?

    I bought springs for mine thinking it needed lowered but it doesn't look much if any higher than Jam's?

    I wonder if mine has been lowered already. Mmmm.

    Smoothy... I'd say your car is standard suspension.

    This is mine with the same setup, it lowers the rear approx 25mm, and the front 10mm at most [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    At a guess; because the springs won't be much different, if at all - and our A3s are considerably lighter at the rear (well, all bar the 1.8TQ and 1.9TDIQ examples of course!) because of all that extra drivetrain in the Q models.

    Either that or S3 owners are all mercenaries with rather heavy corpses in their boots? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img]
