    alrite everyone,

    Got a few questions regarding mods I want to do:

    - First off I'm thinking about a remap, which one is best (revo, shark etc.) and anyone know or been to any good dealers in the north west. Also what bhp can I expect, 300?

    - Looking at lowering would these be a sound option and do I need spacers? H&R 25mm Lowering Suspension Springs S3 8P / S3 8P Sportback 2.0T FSi Quattro 11/06> - £204.00 : The premier online mail order VAG suspension and performance specialists. We offer a wide range of all the best branded suspension and performance parts

    - Also what would be a good exhaust mainly for sound but also performance. (I know nothing about exhausts) I would like a nice noise nothing too loud but a nice grumble in idle.

    Thanks in advance



    p.s forgot to mention i have a 59 plate s3

    All the answers you are looking for are subjective.

    Your best bet is to use the search button and get reading!

    PM Damian @ DPM for lowering advice. He's a member on here.

    Now i'm older (42) and have got rid of my 8 years old loud modified Subaru I spent thousands on from new, I prefer the stealth approach! Forget anything except a stage 1 map. I used Shark and love it. Put all your other money and have a holiday instead! Seriously.

    Check out gnj motorsports for mods. As they are the cheapest around and Brotek performance for shark remaps :)
