G'day from Oz - new member with a query
Kinda new to the forum, I used to post here whilst having the previous model S3. Its been about 5 years now since I sold the car. Since then I found myself jumping into a 350Z which was fun for around 2 years and then needed something a bit more practical so found myself in a MKV GTi great car brilliant in every way but Im a bit of a mod head so found the FWD started to hinder my future plans for the car I got up to Stage 2 which included the APR ecu flash & 3 turbo back and BMC CAI this got the car around 165kw and 380NM which was hard to put down with a FWD just sold the GTi and patiently waiting for my new baby to arrive at the end of July.
Here in Aus the car was released about a month ago so fairly new and not much information in regards to specs and user reviews Ive been reading through this forum with much interest over the past few weeks. Currently being without a car has been a testing time for me to say the least.
Hopefully I can add to the vast knowledge and experience in this forum I love reviewing products and work closely with the guys in APR/ Oettinger in Aus with new mods for audi/VW - have been know to be a guinea pig with mods :) Anywaz just a quick intro to say hi and a quick question hope u can help
Im planning doing the following mods shortly after I run the car in and will post my dynos & reviews just in case anyone here is a bit nuts like me ;)
19 wheels upgrade
Bilstein PSS9s coilover kit
H&R anti roll kit
Haldex controller switcheable controller that adjusts the haldex system
APR/Oettinger direct port upgrade (basically replaces chip via software thats undetectable and controlled via cruise control to switch from stock mode to upgrade mode) APR predict 240KW (321hp) and 420NM - this is great for ppl who worry about warranty insurance etc.. totally undetectable.
Milltek or Oettinger 3 turbo back system
BMC CAI same as the one i had on the previous S3 and GTi
This brings me to my first question, could I please confirm that the standard wheel offset for the S3 is +ET54mm
Im thinking of going 19 x 8 with +ET45mm do you think I would have rubbing issues with 235/35 series tyres. Im considering doing 225/35 just incase as I have heard allot of rubbing issues on this and other forums from members who have upgraded their wheels.
I would really appreciate feedback
Thanks for your Time
