    Markey,

    No experience with the eibach ones but can say my set up certainly did stiffen the chasis and sharpen up the steering. I still have my old front and rear ARB's if your interested. As you dont have the sport set up I understand that the front will be approx 3mm thicker than what you have as my OEM one is exactly the same as the S4's and I think my OEM rear is 1/2 mm thicker. Can easily check the thicknesses for you if you want.

    I am not sure about prices for the eibach kit but I ended up paying around 500 for my H&R front and Neuspeed rear. So if you are intersted in mine you could have a cheap upgrade at 100 for the both.

    Just one last thing to note. Even though my car does handle much better with the ARB's they have made the car so stiff that I has taken almost all feel out of the steering wheel and although it corners extremely well it doesnt actualy feel that fast & hense can kill some of the fun.

    Markey,

    Its a long story and I have still got a few issues to sort out with it. However the perfomance figures are off AmD's rollers. To be honest I am not 100% confident that they are accurate and think they maybe a little over. My car only boosts to 1.0 bar and other tunners like Jabba say they can only get 230 ish from 1.2 bar hense the reason I am a little sceptical. However AWE & a few other american tunning sites claim 230 @ 1.0 bar for a K04 so perhaps my figures might not be too far off. Until i get it run on a different dyno I wont really know. BTW when you going to get yourself a boost gauge? Cos you really should get one as a diagnostic tool as you have spent so much on tunning your car. I would be interested in hearing what type of boost figures your getting.

    Funny you should say that mate im buying one today a digital one here is a little piccy it does both boost pressure in PSI and Charge Temp which i think is a good gimic. And to see how well my FMIC cools the air.
