That wont be Chris mate, the car was just as filthy as mine when I met him last week end!! Ha ha
nope gotten mine elsewhere and im paying about the same
right update time quite a few things have changed and happened since the last to this update will b pic heavy, which cant be a bad thing
right so since last update:
s3 front brake conversion
2011 rear lights
carbon b pillars and mirror backs
bbs ch 18's wheels
anodised blue wheel bolts
detachable tow bar
where the hell have you been ?
cars looking great
Where did you get the tow bar and bike rack?
nally , been rly busy focusing on my dh racing hence the bike lol, got lots of plans for car again so will b back online more now
shiggins92- i got the tow bar from ebay and the rack from my mates bike shop peddlers but are also available on ebay, i mounted the electrics in the boot so as u can see form the pics one the tow bar is detached you cant notice it has one
awsome my climbing partner is bang in to dh hes got a orange alpine 160 its sick, btw the rack is tight
Looking sweet mate. Seen the car around the area a few times, a real head-turner!
Was gonna say where have you been? Your car has always been one of my favourites from this forum Nice to see you back fella
Very nice. Roof looks cool and Im liking those plates. Where did you get them?
if you decide to get an s3 front bumper dibs on your s line bumper if you want to sell it buddy ???
Nice motor, where have my RS4's gone?
lovely car mate! im not so sure on the silver Ch and the rest being black. maybe shadow chrome or titanium on the alloys?
the roof certainly looks good too mate, would you consider getting that rear spoiler done carbon as well?
rockape- i got the plates from a online show plate maker cant remamber the name
tdi140- complete bumper-wings-headlights-bonnet-grill maybe up forsale next year if all goes to plan
aiden - i damaged 1 wheel and was proving difficult to get a exact replacement so just bought new wheels
itwasntme187- wheels will be going a diffrent colour if they get damaged, still toying with spoiler but few other things are going carbon
cheers for comments guys
Ok update time,
Today ive carried out some handling upgrades consisting of front and rear eibach anti roll bars with polly bushes, whiteline anti lift & castor adjust kit thanks to scott off audi-sport.net and also lower gearbox to subframe mount polly bushes. Also give the underneath of engine a quick clean up.
Here is the subframe striped off and old anti roll bar off read for new anti roll bar and anti lift kit
Old castor mount and new anti lift & castor adjust mount, (note old is from o/s of vehicle new is for n/s)
New roll bar and anti lift kit inplace
Sub-frame, new anti roll bar and anti lift kit fit and lower gearbox mount bushes
Old anti roll bars and castor mount and new rear anti roll bar
New rear anti roll bar fit
Over all the results are fantastic the ride quality hasnât got any worse, there is no body roll on the car comin into or in the corners, the turn in is so much sharper and there is no engine movement thanks to the lower gearbox mount all together feels alot more planted to the road and gets the power straight down
looks fantastic, id be tempted to black the center of the front splitter and poss the side rub strips in carbon wrap.
Looks good mate!
Absolutely gorgeous car - although I'm not feeling the silver alloys with the black grille and roof, I'd prefer them in anthracite.
Sweet car and nice DH rig, good work!
looking good chris mate ! deffo a change for the better since i last saw your motor . :thumbsup:
CHEERS for the comments guys wheels will change colour if / when they get damaged
recent mods over the xmas period involved getting a LCR front spitter and carbon wrapping it and since i had load of carbon wrap left did some covers in the engine bay, will get pics up asap
Simply stunning Chris
Nice car, love the colour and has given me some ideas!!
Who or where did you get the roof done at ??
Looks awesome m8, mine in Mauritius blue so may not go or look anywhere near as nice as yours does.........
I got the wrap off eBay mate £23 and got it fitted by a local sign writer for £40
Great job mate, looks really good.
Where did the blue wheel bolts come from?

and new battry this week as the cold weather has taken its toll on it
will get few up to date pics at weekend when its had a clean
well i for one am very pleased with Teesside Audi's service today, took my car in for the injector recall, got 4 new injectors, free car health check, free MOT which it sailed through and a free wash and valet and the best bit is i now have 0.3 bar more boost pressure, and my slight missfire in 6th under load has gone and my bad starting in the cold has gone, the car now drives so much smoother and pulls a hell of alot better
Nice one Chris!!
Glad to see someone has had a positive experience at Teesside Audi. Wearside Audi gets my vote everytime.
Chris,Did you ever get it RR? How has the car been since you got the DPF delete? Getting my new tdi 170 soon and seriously considering this!
