Glad to see you did go down the Shark route mate
where did you get your RS3 Grille from and how much ??
ps your car looks excellent..
We got it from Harrogate Audi and the cost is £650 plus £85 for the plate carrier.....
ours was FOC
I,d like to have seen Guildford throw one of those in ...........NOT
These days on ASN its just Shark Shark Shark
Anywhere near the sunny North East by chance?
I have an S3 BE DSG here crying out for Stage 1........
DIY looks fairly straight forward but I like the idea and re assurance of a dealer doing the work...
I maybe able to help Paul, if I can do it, anyone can.
Alloys arrived at Revolution today, however the tyres I wanted apparently won't be available for another 3 weeks.....eeeekkkkk
They offered me Avon ZZ5's which I've never heard of, anybody got any experience or opinions of these?
Avon's are allllllllllllllllllllllllllright, what tyres you waiting on?
Had them on my mum's Focus a few years back when they didn't have any Conti SC2s available to replace a punctured and worn front tyre. They were pretty good, a bit noisier than the SC2s though... might have ZZ3s we got actually, since this was way back when SC3s were just out.
Ah good tyres!
Going to talk to them tomorrow to see what price they can offer me on Toyo TR-1 instead if there isn't much difference in price
if avon are anything like there cosmetics i would say no thanks,, conti ,michelin ,pirelli,Goodyear any of these tyres all day long..
You had much experience of the Avon cosmetics have you?!
That's kind of Andrew and mine feeling, not heard alot about the brand. I know I want my new wheels on but with the plans we've got for the Goblin I need decent tyres. I'll update tomorrow, not much else happend as it been busy at work. With DTUK we are working on a secret mission and Andrews off to Landrover tomorrow morning
Lol ,yeah deodorant spray...total rank..
I have used AVON ZZ3s many moons ago on a Civic Type R and there were very good.
I and several others on here can highly recommend the Goodyear Eagle Assymetric 2's......fantastic tyre for pretty sensible money ?
N8, regarding the STS box, if you have more than one car ( you know where i'm going with this ) which would benefit from a remap, could you re-use the same STS box, or would you need one for each car ?
Sorry to hijack your thread Jen........you sure you can hold out three weeks to show us those wheels......I can hear you cracking under the pressure already ??
Conti sport contact 5's are what you want Jen. Brand new top end continentals, they ain't cheap though, but better that Michelin ps3's by a long way. Avons are mid range tyres which are ok for the price. Toyo tr1's are to be avoided if you need good tyres to put power down, they are very over rated
No worries Cracking under the stress defintely as its been one a hella of a day and I've not had chance to speak to Revolution yet and I wanted my new wheels on by next week for The Fast Show....
that looks fab, cant wait to see more pics
So want your car!!!!!
Tyres came in today, so wheels collected and being fitted Monday with the springs ......pics to come!
can't wait to see them on the car jen
We're all on tenterhooks here )
Hopefully get chance to put some jetseal on them before they go on, then it's over to my new unit to get polishing
Car looks really good jen.. Not usually a fan of green cars but think this will be special.. What did you do with the optics grill?
Waiting to go up for sale when we get 5 minutes.
Wheels went on today...springs tomorrow (couldn't wait lol)
Excuse the dirty car and no tyre dressing!
The illuminous goblin
Beading porn lol
Doesn't look like a car but some kind of plant!
Jen Jen Jen Jen what about the first choice of wheels that you mention me???
Still a very nice choice girl
Decided on the 19" bbs instead, satin ties in nicely and the chrome trim with the mirrors
looking goooooooood jen , tut tut tut for no tyre dressing lmao
Oh my... Great choice of wheels
Excellent choice in wheels!
Look fantastic. Love the beading too. As you said, not like a car at all.
Tbh the pictures don't do the wheels justice they look much better in the flesh
