    Exclamation S3 a bit loose...

    Hi guys the s3 to me feels very loose round corners compared to the r32 handling on the r32 is amazing compared to the s3 feels much more planted to the ground... im thinkng of doing some HnR arb's and hopefully it will handle much better....
    has anyone here done the arb's if so whats your view on these? was ther a big difference in handling..?


    revo stage2, Milltek TB non res, forge cai, forge dv, HnR springs,bbs ch black eddition, optics grill, LaminX, lcr splitter.....
    soon to come....gloss balck front and rear valance, side mirrors, RS4 brakes, revo stage 2+, fuel pump......

    Yep - had them on mine for a while now Saf.
    Really rate them, mixed with the H&R srings you already have.
    Certainly tightens everything up no end, you can hold a line tighter, faster and get on the power earlier. Well worth doing mate.

    Well I went with eibachs & the guy who was supposed to fit other day let me down, so me & mate gonna do rear tomorrow & then I'll get another mate with ramp to drop sub down & do fronts, then I'll report back, sorry Jamie I did appreciate the advice on H&R but Damian only had eibachs in stock which were almost same size, but when I decide to get S3 I'll do H&R most likely, anyway so far eibach parts have impressed me alot, springs are great & seeing the bars makes me think they're also a serious upgrade over stock aswell mate, time will tell huh

    Anti Roll Bars
    Reduces lean in corners, keeping all tyres planted and can adjust how a car behaves on the limit. The H&R set up eradicates understeer unless really provoking the attitude of the car. Turn in is much improved... well worthy mod IMHO

    Pics on track with the roll bars on:







    And some S3's on track without them:

    i think the S3 is lower than the s-line by 10mm, so you'd be looking for a 35mm drop.
    If you have a chat with Damian @ DPM I'll bet he can tell you exactly what to look for

    Cheers Saf mate.
    Be warned, the cost to fit the bars is pretty high, as to fit the front bar the sub frame needs to be dropped.... cost me about 260 to have the springs and bars fitted and I'd say 80% of that cost was the bars

    So. You don't bother to use punctuation then? No wonder it's hard to understand what you're saying? The site doesn't tolerate "text speak". I think it should also consider not tolerating unpunctuated text..

    I hear what you're saying, but I think a lot of people access through iphones and other mobiles.... sometimes punctuation etc suffers as a result.

    Well who cares cause at moment its a feck load of fun, really is, Jamie was seriously right, he suggested H&R but Eibachs have also transformed corners, he was so right, so kudo's to him, I actually go round them now, lol, cant wait for fronts to be done & yeah thats on my wish list for new house, ramp, lol

    But I want to again give serious Kudo's to Damian@DPM yet again, fantastic service, support aswell been great, I cant say enough about this guy cause items arrive next day & transactions are very easy indeed, I can 1000% point anyone to DPM for items he sells, for me, even though pricing is brilliant aswell, the service I get is well worth it, use them anyday of the year.

    Not being funny but I think you're of the intelligence to understand even text speak, lets not try & turn this site into something to anal ffs, I mean really if you couldnt understand that then does make you wonder, I read it 1st time without a problem, lets not get overexcited now afterall its friday not monday.

    PS. Eaten 2 mcdonalds in 2 days, not good, soon I'll be supersized
