    Finally S3 arrived. a busy project day

    So, it finally arrived. A few of you on here have helped me no end on this, so many thanks to you all, and i promised a few pics.

    a trip down to Poole to collect the car, and loaded it up with all the goodies which all seemed to go on just fine.

    for those that have worried about what rubs and what doesnt when looking at 19's on an S3, here is the definitive answer.

    the wheels are ET45, and the tyres are 225. i was warned that it would rub and it did. i removed the screw and drove 100miles with it and by the time i was home its pretty much gone. also consider that it had the OE wheels, springs abnd ARBs and it wasnt too bad. i have to say though its taken to the max. in hindsight though im happy with going with the decision i did. Anyway, i will leave the rest to you, its good to be one of the community again, 3 long months since those dirty toe rags nicked the last 2. suffice to say the security is about at its max.

    hope you enjoy my addition here guys and no doubt be catching you all at a few events this year.

    Stage 1 inbound, someone crack the 2010 DSG codes for me.

    it depends on the offset, but ET45 and 225 on H&R just rubs a little. 215 would not rub at all and certainly not at ET50, but im happy with what i went with.

    cheers N8. wow i deliberated about the Helios for weeks man. went with the VMR's and am pretty stoked, but not taking anything away from the Helios. just wasnt sure about making them anthracite, could have been sacrilage.

    Very nice! I wonder if it's worth doing something about the mirrors as they look out of place in 1 picture.

    N8 - I also need to update my pictures as I have had my Ibis White S3 since January, but what with re-locating, I simply haven't had time to take some decent pictures. Me bad.
