Nice, if i was on FaceBook i'd hit you up with a like
Shot of my car from this article:
Event: GTI International 2014 - Fourtitude.com
Amazing, The attention to detail is incredible. Stunning car with some equally stunning and impressive mods. As soon as I opened this thread and saw the spec list I knew I was in for a treat reading and looking at all the pictures.
Wrapped the door mirror casings a while ago in Avery conform black chrome vinyl wrap, but due to the complexity of the mirror casing shape had a few join lines which I never liked - found these brushed black chrome door mirrors which will go nicely with the HRE Performance Wheels brushed dark tint finish very nicely - am not going to rush to fit them as will get them sprayed in a clear lacquer to protect them first.
Nice touch, again, I like the attention to detail.
I looked around your car at Blyton afew weeks ago. Truly impressive to see such a well done car in the flesh.....err.....metal !?
Nice 1, really enjoyed reading through the build!!! Love the car mate!
Just one thing; wouldn't it be safe to hide your number plate as thiefs could easily find out your details through the reg!
Anyway thanks for the posts! Really really enjoyed it
After I had accident last week, now considering getting either S5 V6T/V8 or S3 Sportback...
But surely tempted to go for S5
Wonderful car and V6T + tweaks is an inexpensive way to get some serious power.
When upgrading the brakes, what additional coding did you have to do for the ABS etc?
Fantastic car and so jealous, you must have a well paid job or a drug dealer LOL
Speechless, will be keeping an eye on this .
No coding required, just needed the RS5 brake booster
Where can you get these looking for some to fit my a3
I got mine on eBay, they are made by GRD Auto, but the gloss black chrome and brushed black chrome are hard to come by
Thanks found em on facebook just messaged em 4 a price
Been a bit quite recently, thought I would experiment...
Very nice, looking forward to seeing this at ADI
Wasn't able to go unfortunately, hospital visits took priority.
Sorry to hear that, I will hopefully see it in the metal soon though
Are these real carbon parts? Or have toy had them wrapped dipped?
They look great. Was thinking that lot would cost a fortune in real carbon fibre
Was sad not to see this beast at ADI this year!!
Was sad not to be there
I just asked myself how the hell do they 'dip' a carbon fibre pattern... 'surely its a wrap'
Just googled it and now I know -- looks awesome!
Where did you get it done?
Wicked Coatings - ask for Lyle and tell him Cuppa sent you. Absolutely top drawer job, and wrapped and packaged really carefully for return.
that's who popped up when I googled it, cheers
First stage of a little mod I've had in mind for a while...
Voila. Anodised red to match the calipers
Better shot in the sunlight
Got another makeover in anodised red coming shortly (fingers crossed).
Cheers - hoping to do a few more things end of this week
A sneak peak from Issue 3 of Audi Tuner Magazine...
Just got my issue of AudiTuner issue 03 and noticed your awesome S5 straight away
Cheers. Get my copy tomorrow hopefully
So car was due an annual service and MOT over at MRC Tuning on Saturday 20th June. Also needed a few other bits fixing, some rusty bits underneath and a crank seal leak.
Went out on the Thursday before to start it up and nothing. Had the joy (or otherwise) of watching three different car transporters attempt to get the car onto the transporter before one could do it (due to it being lowered).
Waved it bye bye and once MRC had checked it over it was just the crankshaft sensor after all that.
Anyway, since I replaced the front bumper (and now had the open RS5 fog grilles) I had wanted to move the air intake down to the front right so I kept it as far as possible from the main radiators. Always thought the default position for the intake scoop is a bad choice since when the car is at a standstill all that hot air just goes straight up the air intake.
Anyway, Doug and the guys moved the intake down to the front right and thought I'd share the photos he sent me...
Even with 8 week old fuel sat in the car the dyno run showed an increase of 11Nm and 4PS over the last one so I'll take that :thumbsup:
A few changes before AITP7. Had this intake pipe sat in the garage for a while, finally got around to fitting it.
Also, finally added a little cosmetic touch I thought would be good for shows with some metallic silver and red vinyl lettering (For the keen eyed / OCD amongst you the word Coupe is missing an accent on the last e, so that needs to be added when I get around to it).
Very very nice mate looks spot on
I remember reading about this AT and enjoyed that, but after reading this from start to finish, one word STUNNING
everything about this car is just pure class and amazing piece of work mate well done.
I like the color of those brake calipers, wouldn't mind mine in that color
Can I ask your profession of work ? Wow crazy money spend never seems build so good
