    If you haven't got footwell lights you will need to buy the kit from RobinA3.

    Arrived today and fitted in about an hour. The induction roar and turbo noise is perfect, just how it should sound from the factory.
    Matches the Revo Stage 1 map perfectly. May get some video footage tomorrow if it's sunny.
    Just need a TTS engine cover now.

    Dan-Jnr,

    Good looking motor and nice mods. I am seriously thinking of getting the Revo intake. Any chance of a video so I can hear what it sounds like?

    On Friday spent the day working over in Liverpool so thought it would be ideal to drop my car off at Pipewerx for their 3" down pipe and decat to be fitted to OEM cat back, only cost £375 all in.
    Finished working in Liverpool around 1pm so picked up my car and booted it over to Unit20 in Neston for Revo Stage 2 (335 BHP 310 LB/FT).

    OMG what a difference the DP and decat makes. The sound on boost from 3.5k is just ridiculous, sounds like a proper sport car now, and it isn't droning when cruising on the motorway. Pops and burbles nicely too. Very impressed with upgrades and will be enjoying the car over summer until I get more need for speed (Stage 2+) over winter.

    Next on my list is inlet valve cleaning, and most likely uprated clutch as I can't see mine lasting much past 60k with Revo stage 2.

    What are the Piperworx exhausts like then? Im on the look out for a performance exhaust but the Milltek is just to expensive imo!
    Id be worried about being pulled over with a decat pipe in all honesty... Bloody lovely car you have tho!

    Not sure on there exhausts but the down pipe and decat were top quality stainless steel. Had one on my S3 8L so trust their skills.
    I wouldn't worry about being pulled over unless you on boost all the time, and you can always play the ignorance card, saying it was like that when you bought it, ha.

    Think you can buy a pipe afterwards anyway if you get pulled cheap enough from them

    Installed a Power Flex lower engine mount insert today to reduce engine movement, this has made gear changes more direct.
    Whilst I was under the car took some pictures of the Pipewerx 3" downpipe and decat. Not a lot of room to get a good angle.
    Videos to come this weekend if the weather is nice.

    What is the cabin vibration like with the Powerflex lower engine mount? Also what made you change it?

    I'm running a cobra downpipe with sportscat on original catback and agree once warm it sounds good with no drone and loud when you want it.
    My only concern is when I start from cold the exhaust is pretty raspy almost like its blown.

    There isn't any vibrations, just stiffens up the engine rocking. Gear changes feel more solid too.

    No one recommend it, I had the uprated dog bone mount on my S3 8L and though this would be a nice little upgrade, it's just and insert to really easy to fit.

    Got round to customising the OEM engine cover I purchased off eBay for £20. Keeping my original engine cover as its in mint condition.

    I got them from Awesome GTI as I was passing through Irlam today, £18.91 for both items.

    They are available from VW too:
    Coolant cap: 3C0121321 confirmed black
    Washer cap: 8D0955455 or 1K0955455 confirmed this a blue, although told they are available in black but he didn't know the part number.

    The one I bought has a part number of 800 955 455 but the country details have been scratched off.

    After doing some research the Audi R8 has a part number of 400 955 277 for the black washer cap.

    Noticed the idle was ever so erratic, visually inspected then removed it and upgraded to the latest R revision.






    The latest revision R is designed differently to the revision F.

    Did you notice that the car wasn't as loud as before especially at the engine bay? Not only under higher revs but when idle also?

    Mine didn't change the sound or volume of the engine running. After the PCV was replaced.

    Firstly car clicked 60,000 miles so time for a treat for the S3.
    After months of searching finally found some genuine 18inch Audi Rotors wheels for a bargain price of £800 without tyres, they needed a little care to get them mint though.
    Two of them had kerb damage on the diamond cut edge so went to WRC Preston to get them re-cut. They did a fantastic job and were ready next day Will let the pictures do the talking.

    The Rotors set the car off nicely, especially with the privacy glass.
    Does the front pipe mod compliment the rest of the exhaust well? Will you upgrade in the oem exhaust eventually?
