    did i do something wrong?
    I also agree that this is weird because I never heard that the master cylinder is too weak from people that are running BBK, so I dont know what is the problem, even brembo have the 6 pot with the 380mm rotor in their offer and they do not advise changing the cylinder, are you using uprated brakeing lines???

    P.S. PLEASE POST A PIC OF HOW IT LOOKS!!!

    Deckedm you made me very curious how would you rate the V-MAXX XXtreme coilover kits against Bilstein B12 or even B14. Many thanks!

    Bilstein coilovers are too much and KW over Bilstein all day long, V6 Pete has V-Maxx and rates them highly...

    Guys...

    Talked to a mechanic today and he had a sit in the car and felt the pedal.. 100% he said bleedproblem... so we didnt do it the right way.. he said that the contact/engine had to be on, had to do something with the ABS.. we never did that :S
    gonna have him do it this week, i did some serious braketests even with the sloppy brakepedal this babies brake like a mofo!!!!!!!!!!! insane!

    Ive made some crappy pics during install..

    here they are, ive also picked up my new wheels yesterday and im gonna run 19inch Porsche 997 Turbo wheels, just ordered adapters and have to wait for them to arrive, then its picwhoring time!!!!


    in the pics theres still the protective coating on the discs (so thats why the look flat, now theyre nice and shiny)






    ive measured the discs with 3 different springroles and the discs are 375mm in diameter,quite huge ****ers for just a slow diesel but hey its al just for pimping anyways

    they look great and i'm glad that you are happy with the coilovers. I have one question regarding them how did you align the wheels, i mean if you lower the car the camber will change, did the coilovers came with the new specs for the wheel allingment, camber angles etc?

    When fitted you should keep alignment as close to factory settings as possible. The front camber is not adjustable, so it is what it is...

    Mine is regular V-Maxx - which should be slap bang in the middle of where the adjustable kit is. So you could adjust to harder than mine, or softer than mine.

    My A3 on V-Maxx fixed damping rides no harder than my A4 S-Line did!

    Ok..... better.

    S-Line doesn't handle as well as the firm rate would make you think it should!
