    I think red calipers would look best all round.

    Thanks everyone! Your comments mean a lot. It's been a long road but I'm very happy with the end result. The amount of people on this forum that have helped me get to this point is unreal. I could have never achieved this without the help and support of Audi sport net. I'm looking forward to seeing you all at various events over 2014. This car is going to be my demo for a venture that is not far away from announcement. I hope I can return the favour to everyone who has put 5 minutes aside to point me in the right direction. :)

    I'm running Eibach coilovers and anti roll bars, alongside 19" BBS CH et35 offset mate. Loads of room for the caliper and sits perfect at the rear. Catches the inner arch a touch over bumps but I'm just waiting for the suspension to settle and the adjust it to the appropriate height so it doesn't touch. I highly recommend these coilovers as they still offer the same oem feel... But can step up when you want them. I'm very happy so far. Not crashy , just comfortable

    The reason I went yellow was from working on prestige cars for 4 years. I was working on a 911 turbo (997) red with black wheels and yellow carbon ceramic brembo's.... I just thought... I got to do this! And here iam. Plus I wanted them to stand out without over cooking the black and red combo

    I want it to still hold it's own mate, as I never wanted it to be a replica of any kind. If I remove the badge I'm trying to hide what it is. I like the surprise element of it. People expect it to be slow but it's just the complete opposite. It's going back for the final map next week now all the problems have been ironed out. I can't tell you exact figures as I just don't know. But it's over 300bhp easily. Dyno results will follow as soon as I know :)

    Its fine hiding it but your not replicationg anything by debadging are you! If you stick an S4 badge on then thats different. But i see your point also is good. 300+ hp nice :) The silver tubing in the fogs makes it look beast with the red paint :D

    That's for the front mount Intercooler mate. Tried to hide it the best I could but that's the best I could do lol! Managed to trim the original fog light covers and plastic weld them without the centre strip. That's as close to oem as I could make it. I still look at it now and can't take it in. Love it!

    Thanks mate, I was torn between white or yellow, but I think yellow was the right way to go. They stand out like a stiffy in speedo's aswell!
