    QUADS finally fitted

    Hey Fellas, I finally got round to doing it, personally I lurrrrrvvvvv it. Sounds real nice too, although maybe a bit too loud at around 4000rpm lol, but fine after that. Plus I've realised it's opened up the gears and top end speed, I can get 140 in 5th gear easily, seems to be real smooth on the motorway so I'm happy about performance as well. let me know what u guys think? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]








    The opening on the left hand side was not made bigger, although he did make as similar a cut on the right and if you look reaaaaal close you might be able to tell that the new cut is just a bit too small (nothing that can't be sorted) and it may make the exhausts look slightly off center at times, but I've measured them up and they're dead perfect to each other so it's just down to a bit of body work.

    P.S. Sorry about the trigger happy pics [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif[/img]

    Re: QUADS finally fitted

    I don't go for the quad look, but I have to say its a damn tidy job. I'd agree that the second tailpipe aperture does need a very slight trim and the edges rounded a bit.

    other than that, a very tidy, but more importantly, OEM looking install. Well done.

    Re: QUADS finally fitted

    So come on then... how much was the damage?

    I was thinking about the second hole bit before, I think it'll always look a bit wrong unless you make it so it goes back like the other side does if that makes sense. Because you'll always be seeing an edge rather than the continuation as per the original side.

    Think it looks pretty good, although if I had one, I'd want straight cut pipes like the M3 and I don't think I'd want it stick out so far.

    Top job for putting your money where your mouth is as well! :-)

    Yes, I'd get that vinyl lip colour coded then it wouldn't show at all.

    Re: QUADS finally fitted

    I think the 4 pipes look great! Well done mate.

    Personally I think the end result looks better than some of the other pics you posted in the other thread.

    My personal taste would be to have the pipes not sticking out as far...but thats just me. If you are happy, thats all the matters!

    I noticed from one of your pics that the new exhaust section doesn't go all the way to the cat, am I right?

    Re: QUADS finally fitted

    Cheers guys, didn't expect to get so many good comments lol but thanks. I thought of going for the stright pipes (M3 style) but thought they'd stick out even more. All in all it cost me Ł735, and I have to take it once a year to get inspected but that's alright with me. I agree Andy the vinyl lip would cover it up, just not sure if I want to take that route, and AL the new exhaust does not go back to the cat (hopefully that's for another time) maybe after a chip or two [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Looks like they have made a good job, but it's not to my taste. Reminds me of a wheel barrow [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img]

    Anyway fair play for doing it.

    I agree... I've never been a fan on RSTT's, and flatly refuse to put them on my car. BBS would be a good choice!

    I'd be happy with some Avus S3's for my A3TS instead of the standard alloys.
    P.S looking good.

    Re: QUADS finally fitted

    Thanks again for the compliments. I do like the standard S3 wheels, though I want to go 1" bigger [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/goofy.gif[/img], 18's look real nice and make the car look much lower. The tints are 35% front, 45-55% on rear, both unbreakable. 75% on the boot. the sides have a slight silver reflection especially when it's sunny so they sometimes look a bit darker (or more reflective).

    Indeed, I love BBS's too, I just see alot of peeps with the CH's now. They are a good looking wheel, which is why they are popular I suppose, epecially with the MK4 guys.

    RCs are lighter than most other wheels on the market...and stronger too.

    A masterpiece really...pure class, of the absolute highest order.
    (I'm a fan...can you tell?)

    Great wheels... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif[/img]


    But you really can't go wrong with any BBS wheel...all strong, light, properly engineered and less likely to bend than most.
