    So was it an easy job fitting the intercooler? Did you do it? That is a fair size so did you have to have the cooler pipes coming out where the fog lights are meant to be?
    I wanna get a det cat but as i've just bought a house got to e sensible with money for a bit!

    Have you got a Turbo intake pipe on yours yet?

    With the decat you could release a whole load more top end power, in terms of that it can still produce torque after 6000rpm, and the FMIC will help with charge temperatures.

    You could look at getting it custom remapped to suit the mods, but thats expensive.

    A generic remap will do nothing for it. Bhp wont go up if you do get it remapped, but it will produce a better driving experience.

    Going for the jap look then Jeffers!!

    Couldnt you just have trimmed some bumper away? The S3 bumper has more gap behind it than the A3 and I 'just about' managed to squeeze mine behind it.

    Silicone TIP, uprated DV... you got those fitted? I'd say get a custom remap to encorperate the new mods you've mad as they will of made a difference to how the cars running. We can do one for you for 440 all in.

    Hope this helps!

    Hey jeff it looks really nice mate, think its time to get mine done now!

    I think i paid 400 for a custom remap and Forge TIP at MRC, So if DPM are doing it for 440 all with a DV and TIP i'd say go for that!
    I've heard good things about them on here and i think alot of people will agree .
    If sure if you ask them nicely they might round it down to a nice 400 figure.LOL

    Mine IS unfinished, I can't hide that offside pipe until I can remove the front towing eye, and to remove the front towing eye, I need somewhere else for the towing eye to go, as you must have one for track use.

    That said, Jeffers looks as if some stole his lower bumper, or its been in a bad crash and he hasnt had the body shop finish up yet...

    Funny enough mine was in a bit of a bump i bought it bumped lol but for some reason even before it was bumped the bumper has always hung down strange really must be one of them ones ..

    But it works i suppose i need some good weather now to finish it off tho could be a long wait..

    RichA3Turbo has the perfect bumper to hide the FMIC, although its &#163;&#163;&#163; and apparently a bugger to fit...
