    if you find any extra cash i'll take some :) mine could do with mapping sooner rather than later ... i'll be looking at GIAC or possibly Jabba ( 15mins away ) although I do like superchips too,

    I thought they were something like £450 for generic map and £550 for a custom map so nothing too high.

    Shorten drop links? What coilovers you going for??

    That is low! Once I've assessed my arches after they've settled, I'll decide on the final height :arco:

    :readit: Thanks for that Steve! Ur in the know :idea:

    That A3 is on airbag suspension so you will not be able to go that low with coilovers!

    do you mean the grey one?

    if so, that ride height is for show, when its parked up

    there will be a separate setting for ride height when the owner flips a switch

    there will be an air reservoir in the boot which will let the suspension rise or lower at each corner indiviually or in different sequences!

    Hi Nath, looking nice, love those wheels - they look like 20's! :)

    Didn't know you had 5 doors - so that's 4 sets of GlowHandles you want then? :)

    Looks nice! Good job!

    I like my standard suspension... good compromise all round. I wouldn't go on 19s... can only imagine the ride, especially on UK roads!!

    But good to look at for sure!
