    2 Rabit222> Your car looks Great!! What ET are this wheels and what width are they? 8''? With this H&R spring and this wheels do you get rubbing on agressive cornering driving? Tyre is 224/35 19 ? Is car with such a setup much stiffer than serial? Sorry on such many questions but I'll put 19'' CH probably on mine and I'm curious

    I really dnt understand the fitment / Offsets / Wheel bearings.

    Ideally Im guessing I would want BBS 19" CH with 35 profile tyres.

    Thanks mate. Wheels are ET50 and 8J wide. I am running them with 235/35/19 tyres. I mentioned in another thread that I removed a single screw from either side of the rear wheel arch and that sorted out the rubbing issue. The wheels are a perfect fit for the S3 and the H&R springs do compliment it quite well. I have decided however to replace my stock shocks with Koni Sports as there seems to be occassions when the stock shock bottoms out...I have had these springs fitted when the car had about 100kms on the odo...it is now close on 18000kms.

    Ideal fitment for your car is

    OFFSET = ET50
    Width = 8J
    Tyres = 235/35/19s

    Would a GIAC remap / DV / Intake get it sounding like yours?

    I don't know really who to go with. I have all different reviews which all conflict with each other or should I say have pro / cons.

    I was going to swap for the new facelift, but I'd have much more fun in doing my own enhancments.

    Ideas are new Black 19" CH's, then remap / intake / DV. That would make me very happy.

    What tyres did you go for? Where do you live, If I was real cheeky I'd love a ride with you hehehe.

    Rabbit did you put spacers on as I like the profile of the sides, do the HR make it hard going with such a wide profile on the wheels as otherwise rubs no?

    How is sunny SA these days as havnt been back since 01 after my years stint in CT.

    Hi Nigel,

    I havn't fitted any spacers, it could be the profile of the tyre? 235/35/19s. Initially the ride was comfortable but with age she has become a tad hard...I have no issues with rubbing at all.

    SA is going well, we are in the middle of winter now so I'm shivering my ass off

    I'm based in Pretoria, about a 20minute drive from Jhb. Thanks for the kind words Nigel.

    @ Davidmann, I'll try and get some engine bay pics and hopefully another video or 2 this weekend for you.

    They are more in the townships, most of what you have seen is actually happening or has happened in the townships. Things have quitened down significantly...about Mugabe, no words can express how much I hate that man, infact my sentiments are shared by all South Africans.

    Here are some before pics I took. I didn't like the aluminium bling factor in my engine bay so I decided to have my intake sprayed black using a product called POWERKOTE. These pics were taken before I fitted the intake....

    I have sent it in to an engineering shop to have it modified a bit...if that doesn't work, I will be ordering an EVOMS engine cover as I hate the fact that my engine bay looks naked now. I wonder if Forge is working on a replacement engine cover?

    I was thinking that. Was the Carb intake any good? What differences does the forge one have, do you know?

    No it wasn't...ended up being more a cosmetic mod then a performance mod. The Forge intake showed an immediate 10kw ATW gain on the dyno....definitely is worth the money, the Forge intake that is.

    Ye, what gives the sound on your video? Is it the forge DV and the remap?

    Its the combination of both the Forge Intake and Forge DV. The intake on its own barely makes a noise, the DV helps it along nicely....

    The intake is making the noise, the Forge DV is just amplifying it somewhat.
