    Bar's and bushes :)

    Hey, as above I'm interested in the above (aren't most guy's lol)

    On this occasion I'm talking running gear upgrades though.

    Basically I have just been told my insurer won't cover any modifications so I have decided to start collecting parts ready for when I get a proper insurer!

    I had decided that before I went for any engine performance upgrades like a remap, exhaust/induction etc I would get suspension, bushes and ARB's sorted.

    I think I have decided on KW coilovers, good choice?, and H&R front and rear ARB's, again good choice?

    I'm not really au fait with what bushes are required however?

    I notice a lot of people go straight for the stage 1 remap but I want to do things a little different by having the running gear in tip top condition first.

    Any advice? Car is a 2012 S3 BE 3dr.

    Cheers,

    Tom

    I am a Polybush distributor. You want KWs and H&R roll bars for sure.

    Sorting the wobbly handling makes any upgrades more usable.

    I took H&R ARBs and kW v3 suspension but also Superpro bushes and anti lift kit.

    Yes.....those are good coilovers,although you do sacrifice some adjustability with the V1s,which can be a good thing unless you're an incurable suspension tweaker....!
