    So out went the crappy annoying TA technix coilovers which have leaked out oil, and physically bent...and in went the KW V3's with silver project camber tops. Such a change in a ride quality, very please with them...nice firm ride. Still have to learn how the damper/rebound works and what effects they have on the car though. Can't wait to hit up the track!

    Not much has been happening here since the coil overs went it.

    Took the rear seats out for weight reduction, was surprised how heavy they are!

    -Silver project camber tops are in. Pretty happy with them, no noise/knocks.
    -Painted stock wheels in satin black.

    Next up on the list
    - Slotted/drilled discs
    - EBC red stuff pads
    - Braided lines
    - Fluids
    - 235/45/17 Kuhmo ku36 semi slicks
    - 25mm spacers

    Hitting up my first track day with it on the 29th September!

    I'd stay away from the drilled discs fella...there prone to crack with the extreme temperature changes they have to cope with.
    Just stick with slotted ones and if you can stump up the extra dosh go for DS2500 pads :)

    Time for a update!

    Fitted slotted and drilled discs rotas, EBC red stuff pads, braided lines all around and ATE racing blue dot4 fluid.
    Also, got around getting some OZ saturn wheels for $250 locally, then got around getting some Kumho KU36 semi slick for it, just in time for my first track day!

    Had a few issues blew open the silicone turbo outlet pipe, which is a worry...I thought they good against heat? Lucky a friend of mine drove his s3 on the day, and used the his OEM so I could keep going throughout the day.

    Popped a bottom intercooler hose off as well during a session, easy fix!

    At the end of the day I noticed a lot of oil pissing out of the catch can, is this normal? I lost quite abit of oil due to this. High oil pressure in the head?

    Block is off to get bored out and decked. crank and the bottom end are off to get balanced and linished.

    Had to swap over the oil gear from my old 1.8t crank to the FSI to prior to this.

    Should get the bottom end back next week from machine shop, getting the crank gear dowelled too which has delayed the balancing by a few days.
