    Best place for Mods on new S3 - Northwest

    Hi all

    Straight after delivery of the S3 on March 1st, wanted to get lowering springs and 10mm spacers all round, I'm from the Stockport, Cheshire area, not far from manchester.

    Just wondered where from your experience was the best place to get the above done??

    Had a price of Awesome, sounds OK, but not really any discount, are there any other reputable places that anyone could recomend, just waiting for www.racetechuk.com to get back to me,

    Any advice appreciated
    Lee

    Nice 1 mate, it's a toss up between Revo and Giac for me, they both dont add to the flash counter, they are both switchable , same gains , same sort of cost, same back up , free updates , it all comes down to the map!

    Revo is also adjustable, either by you or a dealer, with a select plus. I'm not sure if this can be done with Giac. Can anyone confirm?

    Got a good price from www.racetechuk.com today for the springs and spacers, including fitting.

    Has anyone used these before?? As will probably book car in within the week.
