    Eibach Pro with Koni FSD shocks removed all the fair ground ride for me, no more bouncy castle & rides at a nice height, not to low or high & very comfortable aswell.

    They look like replicas, the A8 ones are rare to find in oem spec. A8/S3 is the same design anyway so just one size bigger.

    The reps tend to be ET42 unlike all the others which are 45. This is just inbetween the size needed for the A8/S3 so the makers kill 2 birds with one stone by using ET42, thats why they fill the arch so well on th A3 platform.

    Those wheels, are they ET42? If so, what width are they? and what size rubber have you got on there?
    Thanks

    THx guys... wheels are 8.5J all around with 215/35/19

    Coilovers are in front on the lowest setting on HARD
    Rears i first removed the adjustment ring that way the car will be lowered an extra 1.5/2.0 cm... this was a little to low.. so back in came the ring, rear is now lowered @ around 55/60mm and also on the hardest setting..

    Only thing i removed is the small screw in the middle of the front wheelarch, it rubbed a very little there.. now its removed and no more rubbing..

    Maybe some light tint lamin-x and a flat bottom steering wheel but apart from that nothing mate. Looks sweet.

    Well.... time for some updates.

    One thing i always hated were small brakes behind big wheels........ so time for some serious brakes
    Orginally kit from the T T RS, with Brembo 4 pots and 375mm discs... (huge discs)
    I didnt like the black oem calipers so i painted them glossy black with red Brembo decals.....



    the calipers might look small but to be honest ..theyre quite BIG with their total length of 28.5 cms..

    I also had a pair of Brembo 6 pot monoblocks laying around from a Cayenne and theyre the big calipers (18Z instead of 17Z) these babies are some serious fckers..... and im gonna give them a complete rehaul and maybe install them instead of the 4 pots...



    gonna install the brakes this weekend, Cayenne calipers fitting is for later on this season.

    Also had this laying around for quite some time now..

    BOSE lilluminated alu thing for the dash, and as said before its lighted and goes 100% the same as with the oem dashlights
    the BOSE loudspeakercaps are also illuminated in red.... will look quite nice with the interior.


    Will post some pics next weekend.

    just a couple of random shots

    The Cayenne brakes are POO. Heavy and they under perform, have 3 years of experience with them on my cousins TT, he recently sold them for Carrera GT 6 pots..

    Heavy??I think your not thinking about the same brakes... I just bought this ( but dont think they are from a Cayenne, what do you think, they are from a Carrera GT2, how can I be sure? and they are less than half of the weight of the OEM S3 callipers...

    The brakes in the ECS Stage 5 kit are actually Touraeg Calipers, but same as the Q7/Cayenne.



    They are VERY HEAVY and as I said they under perform. My cousin has just switched to Carrera GT 6 pot calipers, I'm yet to test them out, but they should be much better....

    Thats what I think, I have them and they are the lightest callipers I ever saw... as I said they are 3 times lighter than my OEM S3... so obviesly we are not talking about the same callipers...
