    New Arrival (incl pics) & some questions

    Hello,
    After a long think I took the plunge decided on this A3 (my 4th Audi!) after deciding my TT is too impractical! I know you lot enjoy a pic or two so here we are:










    It has 53k, 3rd owner, £8,800.

    I am planning on adding some H&R spacers at the weekend (20 + 30mm per axle) and getting the calipers painted at some point (nothing worse than rusty calipers, really spoils the car!).

    The car sits a little high so thinking about some -30mm Eibach lowering springs which I understand will actually lower the car by about 15mm (seeing as it has S-Line springs already – thanks Damian @ DPM). What are ppl’s experience with H&R?
    I don’t want to go too low and want to maintain some comfort (ie close to OEM!) because some roads around Surrey & South London are horrendous!

    Also planning a remap – anyone recommend any in particular? I had a Revo on my TT and seemed quite good. Heard a Wak is meant to be good?

    Cheers!

    Nice1 Ash. All the Audis drive great as you'd expect, the TT was always a bit of a nightmare to get in/out of without kicking the door/seats etc - ha. Could be cos I'm turning 30 soon .... just wanted something which is a bit more subtle which attracted less attention, practical and still GOES :D. Also being quattro the TT did feel quite a hefty car at times and now driving the A3 made me realise quattro is nice to have but certainly not essential. Hardly any difference in handling apart from a bit of understeer. I'd rather save a bit of dosh on the petrol (2WD being c70kgs lighter than A3 quattro equivalent) and tax/insurance etc and getting off the line quicker. TT was also a nightmare to park at times cos ya can't see where the damned front or back ended! The 8L S3 was great but things like the interior began to feel very dated so chopped it in but missed the 'hot hatch' feel which is why I chose an A3.

    H&R spacers are on! Sorry the pics aren't great but you get the idea .

    10mm each side at the front and 15mm each side at the rear. They really give the car a better stance and push the wheels almost flush with the bodywork. An essential mod!

    Only just seen this reply fella sorry. Car looks good with the spacers on. Any other plans?
    Lol good excuse "could be cos im turning 30 soon". Yeah thats fair enough reason for going to fwd.
    Good choice on the replacement and like the pass cars as well

    An update for you.

    Well, my engine bay was looking a very sorry state. The engine cover was broken and the oil cap....well....







    So I managed to get an S3 engine cover from the Bay and a genuine Audi R8 Oil Cap. Here's the results:









    S3 engine cover fitted:











    Feedback always welcome
    Cheers,
    Donny

    Nice one Chris - that's exactly what I've read and wanted to hear buddy! Some roads around South London/Surrey are fairly horrendous (speedhumps and potholes everywhere ) so couldn't go too low and wanted to maintain some comfort otherwise I'd get earache from the passenger lol.

    Another update -
    Now lowered on Eibach Pro springs yest. Still needs to settle a little but I'm impressed it has maintained near-OEM comfort:

    You say the comfort is pretty much the same as OEM, and the height of the pro's is also pretty much s-line height.
    Out of interest... why did you go for Eibach Pro springs??

    @ N8 - Ha ha, nicely put mate! Maybe I'm weird but I think the standard S-Line set up is fine. I prev had an 8L S3 on -50mm H&R Springs which handled GREAT but killed my spine so anything else now is silky (!). Which leads me nicely onto Ads....

    Yeah it's a good question Ads. Some roads around South London/Surrey are horrendous (speed humps, pot holes etc) so rather than go for looks/handling I settled for compromise. The Eibachs have lowered it by about 5-10mm than what it was before so I'm happy with that. Coulda gone for the Sportline kit but prob woulda been a terrible ride :/

    I've got to kinda agree with you there. The s-line set up is nowhere near as bad as people make out. Its firm but not the bone shaker that people say it is. I've been in plenty of cars that are A LOT worse. Which leads me nicely on to......

    I know you've gone Pro springs now but just for future reference...
    You would've been fine on Sportlines. I've got them and live in East London so the roads are as bad (if not worse) than yours. Even though 25mm lower than s-line they're fine and still more comfortable than the s-line set up.

    Interesting Ads, cheers i'll bear that in mind m8! How can they be more comfortable than standard even though they're lower then?

    Ads your car's stance is awesome btw, does it still allow for much suspension travel?!

    Eibach have a "progressive" design. This means that the spring is wound more loosely at the ends and tighter in the middle. This gives a softer ride over smaller bumps and during normal driving, and a firmer ride over large bumps and reduces body roll during hard braking and fast cornering.

    Ads your car's stance is awesome btw, does it still allow for much suspension travel?!
    Thanks fella.
    Yep, as above, the suspension travel is fine under normal driving, but as soon as the you start driving hard it stiffens up nicely and keeps things nice and level.
    I'm still running my 50k miles standard Sport shocks and they are doing fine at the moment, but when the time comes to change them I'm guessing the ride will be even better with uprated shocks.

    Couple more pics of the flat bottom - note no redundant flappy paddles or multi function buttons

    Loving the car and the subtle but tasteful mods. I have been asking others what difference the spacers make to the steering feel also any tramlining ?

    Thanks m8! It makes hardly any difference to steering feel or handling - imo they're purely on for looks!!
