    ok so done a few bits and bats since last update which included selling the helios wheels and the weitec coilovers as I just wasn't happy with the ride height on them,ive since replaced them with some fk silverlines which im far happier with although im still on the hunt for a nice set of rims as im running 19inch bbs/speedlines for the time being....
    after another play with the coilovers...

    I then also got offered a forge twintake for a good price so decided to have a go with it,overall im happy with it as it sounds immence

    after this I thought it was time I bought some mirrors as ive been running with no side repeaters since I facelifted the front end also mot is coming up so took the plunge think its finished the front end off nicely even though I would've preferred the smaller later type ones the dumbos were a steal so on they went.

    your car looks fab, but then it should it an audi.

    it would seem i am following suit, got mot coming up and need side repeaters, like you i wanted the smaller one's but it would seem i have brought the Dumbo's, i think they look good, should be able to read my rear number plate now, was just having a look on ASN to see what they was like fitted,

    did you cut and splice or change the door ecu?
    are you going to audi's in the park?

    After a couple of weeks with the dumbo's, you'll think the old ones look odd.
    I had this. I drove my new A3 for a few weeks and then went to move my old A3 and hated how the little mirrors looked. It's weird how quickly you adjust.

    So what was wrong with the weitec coilovers? I'm looking at getting some so wondering why you changed? Didn't go low enough or?
    I'm currently on the cheap JOM coilovers and with it being a 2.0TDI Quattro, think its to heavy for them tbh!
    Any thoughts appreciated!

    Looks nice but is the result a 2007 a 2012 or neither? Could the money spent have been better put toward buying a 'proper' 2012?
    A main dealer wouldn't touch it come sale time if and when that happens, so only another enthusiast with the same taste as yours would be interested but it does look tasty so maybe they will be lining up at your door.

    The weitecs ride quality were second to none it drove really well but just didnt go anywhere near low enough unfortunatley,i barely have any cost in the facelift change due to my mates bad luck [his was rear ended so i took his front] and the work was done with the help of some useful mates,on the selling front i know ive ruled the dealers out but due to the condition and mileage etc i dont think id have too much trouble selling priveatly.The conversion itself wasnt that hard its the front wings that cause the most problems as they sit totally different so had to make some brackets but other than that its fairly straight forward. and thanks leeds2592 it does finally sit quite well although i have sacraficed ride quality its now on fk silverlines.

    Hi
    What size and offset are the rotors ?
    I have just just had delivery of some ebay 8.5" x 19" rotors with 235 tyres but fitting one of the front wheels the tyre was sticking out of the wheelarch by a good 10mm , there is no way i'd get it as low as yours.
    would you know if the arch's are the same size on the S3 to a Tdi quattro ? , I know the RS3 arch's are wider
    Cheers Ian

    Hi
    The rotors I had were ET42 , so thats the 10mm difference in why mine are sticking out further , I have packaged them back up and they are going back today , all the reps I have seen advertised are either 42 or 45 ET , can't find any other bar OEM at ET50
    Cheers Ian

    I ask them if they could fit narrower tyres and they said it couldn't be done as they weren't wide enough , I did contact someone this morning who said they can supply me an 8" wide rim , the ones I had delivered yesterday were 8.5" , with an ET of 45 and a 215 width tyre so looks like thats the way i'll go , i'll just confirm the sizes they have given me are right
    Thanks for your help
    Cheers Ian
