1.8T Sport, just had suspension upgraded...
Just got my car back from a local Audi specialist based locally.
I asked him to fit a full set of Powerflex bushes (all bushes front & rear), a Powerflex dogbone engine mount, an alloy strut brace & some FK (Koni) fully sdjustable coilover kit.
I have only driven the car back from his workshop to my house, so have not had chance to get a good feel for it (i only use the car @ weekends). On first impressions i think it seems to sit a bit lower than it did before (OE shocks & spax lowering springs, fitted already when i got the car), the car seems a little firmer (i asked him to set it all up as that initially).
I think the front needs to be stiffer, because when cornering, & on a delcine im sure the tyre fouls the wing.
Does anyone run the same setup as i do on an '98 A3 1.8 T Sport?
What settings do you find best?
I know its all about personal preference, just wanted to know others views
Think it might be time to go for a little drive round some bendy b roads
Well, went out for a bit of a hoot earlier & came across an E46 BMW M3 cabby.
I tortured him on the roundabouts & was all over him on acceleration. I think i gave him a suprise (aswell as myself). Obviously i was no match for sheer engine capacity that the beemer boasted.
It was a very enjoyable experience overall :-)
Incidentally, prior to seeing the M3, i had changed the front shocker settings to maximum stiffness.
I personally think the car would be even better if it was firmer still.
I really can feel the difference that the powerflex bushes make.
Overall, i would say it was a worthwhile upgrade considering the car has more than standard power.
Will post a few piccies as soon as i sort a pic hosting account out.
see we dont always have to have a BMW to have fun,the old gits AUDI still preforms well agaianst its german brother
