    200bhp on a hybrid, seems a bit low tbh & hardly seems worth the upgrade cost, as a stock one would do 185ish, I would expect easily 220-230 everyday of the week on a hybrid.

    I have been looking at s3 brakes but there quite expensive what do I need to change over? And I know I wasn't putting like 220bhp and people start moaning that it won't get that much but you just shut anybody up :p and most companies were quoting 200bjp that's why I'm gonna go with fr tuning because they said about 220 but need a decat etc and are reasonably priced

    For S3 brakes you need the calipers, carriers, new hoses, discs and pads. i have the front and rear S3 ones on mine and the car really does stop nicely
