    Some pics of S3 + H&R + detailing

    Had my suspension sorted yesterday, really pleased with the feel and ride now, corners are great now, very little body roll

    Had the car detailed today and was pleased with the results, here are some pics:

    Thats where I'll end up going for the suspension, exhaust and CAI I think.

    Does it handle better? how is the ride?

    I think the handling is spot on now, a lot less body roll and less wollowy (not sure thats a word) I did find the standard suspension abit slow to respond on fast B roads.

    It basically feels like my Mkiv R32 ride and goes round corners as fast

    Your car looks very nice I'm definately going to fit H&R ARB's and Springs along with some spacers as soon as i get my S3. Do you have spacers fitted to your car?

    How much did it cost? Did you need to get wheel allignment done afterwards?

    You will probably find very little problem as they would need to prove (and the onus is on them) that your mod caused the issue, and I feel most dealers would just over look such items - in fact some probably wont notice!

    Are you getting any rubbing with it lowered? Also with your 10mm spacers what is that equivalent to whilst using the stock wheels?

    Cheers, the ARB's and Springs including fitting and geometry etc.. came to just short of 900. Not sure how that stands as far as suspension goes, but if i needed to spend that again I would, to get the same handling/feel/visual improvement.

    Its got rid of the only thing that disappointed me with the whole car
