    Yeah it's a good way to stop that pesky td1 error code popping up. Now this tuning is for the S3. What about other engines? Any developments for us slower kids?

    1.4 TSI COD is available, and the 1.8TSI 180ps is actually scheduled to hit the dyno tomorrow

    I'll post details for the 1.8 Tsi as soon as we have them

    Sorry guys, this week has been hectic at work to say the least so not had chance to have a mess around and clean it for some pictures.

    Hopefully tomorrow will be a bit easier so we can start the blog for the car and give it a good clean for some pictures.

    Can report back that the box has been performing brilliantly when I have been out and about in the car! As ever give us a shout if anyone wants to pop over and try it and/or order a box

    Yeah, we have kits for the 122ps too,

    A minimum extra 22 bhp and 30nm, the reason I say minimum is that until the S3 all of the cars have been dynod without my adjustments being made to the box. I'd think I'm reality you'd be looking at an additional 30hp and 50nm

    Again these kits are available from ourselves or from GNJ

    Any more pics of the whole car bud? The colour combo of black on black is what I'm aiming for if I order a new s3.

    Where are you based? Is it possible to get a ride with the tuning box fitted as a demo if one was interested in buying?

    Sorry mate.

    To say things have been hectic for us since Christmas would be an under statement. Good in most ways but our progress thread has been neglected!

    Anyway....

    We finally managed to find time (after they sat under my desk for 3 weeks!) to fit the H&R springs and wheel spacers on Saturday afternoon. We have also had the DTUK/Shark tuning box on now for weeks and its great! PM me for pricing on this

    The springs are great, they have stiffened up the ride a very slight amount and improved the handling when pushing it which is pretty much as you'd expect from H&R springs. The stance is spot on, it left the reverse rake intact at first but it has since leveled out. I will get updated pics soon as the below pic is just after fitting.

    With the spacers we actually have 11mm Forge spacers on the front and 20mm TPI spacers at the back. We messed about with them and after much deliberation we decided this was the best combo. I'm going to try a set of 12mm TPI soon as we can then put a kit together that is all the same brand. No rubbing at all as yet, the 8V seems to have arches that are great for spacing/stance!

    Anyway...a sneak pea before we get some proper pics with the springs settled.



    I will post prices for the springs and spacers in the morning

    Looks perfect. Exactly what I'm after. As soon as I can after I know when I'm getting the car/know build week for 100% I'm ordering spacers and h&r springs.

    Could you do the longer wheel bolts too as a spacers and bolts package? Would make it easier and a more complete package. You could call it the "S3 8V Stance Pack" haha

    I have 20mm spacers all round in my a5 that I was going to take off and put on the s3. Do you think the front could take 20mm spacers?

    Car looks awesome i will deffo be ordering the h+r springs too.

    Question for you,

    If you have mag ride can you change to lowering springs with no detrimental effect and would the lowering springs void warranty?

    Yes that is exactly as we are doing spacers, bolts, lockers all in a kit. We thought 'track widening kit' rather than 'stance kit' haha

    20mm would be too much up front. Just get a set of 12's for the front.

    Yes there is a kit for mag ride. Hoping to list them tomorrow on our site. Any springs will void the suspension warranty. Naughty but you could always get them swapped back if something does go wrong.

    Do the H&R springs sit level? I hate the look of the rear been lower than the front.

    At the very least it has to sit level or the front being slightly lower than the rear would be spot on.

    don't you think putting wider spacers at the back will change the balance of the car ?

    It's wider at the frond because it needs to be so the car is not understeering too much, with those spacers you will make the car understeer even more.

    In a word, no. We have put spacers at the front as well. It certainly feels more planted with the springs and spacers on.

    UPDATE:

    We are collecting the car from Forge Motorsport on Thursday. Next stop will TAROX for some big brakes and then Cobra Sport for a full 3" turbo back exhaust system upgrade.

    I will post about the results of the trip to Forge when we have the dyno graphs but all I will say is we should have a 400 BHP package pretty soon

    We are going to make the S3 8V section on our website a little different to the other parts with us having the demo car, so once we have done that I will post a link. We will have loads available for them shortly with fitting available as well.

    Is there a tarox kit for the 8V or are you using one for 8P ?

    No they are using ours to measure up for a bespoke kit for the S3 8V and we will be testing it.

    Thanks, do you happen to know if a braided brake line from a golf 5 / 8P can be used for the 8V ? (for a Porsche kit)

    We're incredibly busy sorry. Dealing with orders and the workshop backlog has to take priority over the S3 as much as I'd like to be on here all the time. Should have more time soon as considering getting another member of staff.

    We have just taken delivery of 5 sets of H&R's.

    Special offer of 10% off and free shipping. RRP £224.39 Sale price £201.95 delivered. Next day delivery.

    The easiest way to order is via phone - 01254 883345

    Just a quick pic of the car after a detail at Miglior Detailing recently



    Gives you a better idea of how it sits on the springs and spacers as well

    Not sure why, I will look into it.

    Latest pic we have....excuse the dirt this was after a 2 hour drive in the rain



    Just dropped the car off yesterday for the exhaust development at Cobra Sport, so it'll be away for a few weeks again. I have some pics on my PC at work of the car and we are going to do a proper update this week along with properly populating the S3 8V on our site with every product we can offer so far which is quite a lot to be fair with the short length of time the 8V S3 has been out
