    So, the question has to be asked, is that a real S3 (I'm pretty sure they're not available in the US)?

    Looks great! However i dont think its real as our friends over the pond don't get the S3.....dont know why though, probably emissions regulations or some other dumb reason!

    Yeah I hadn't heard of them before but I mentioned it to my mate and he said "Yeah they sound like Alcons. They're expensive!"

    I didn't realise they were little grooves on the discs, I thought they were painted on lol

    Think he's dropped it on springs, be interesting to see how much the brakes cost, alcon are excellent and underrated brakes.

    Why have you quoted your own post???

    And is it an S3 or a 2.0T?

    After looking on all the USA forums, this is the only facelift A3/S3 conversion in the US. We envy you guys as we all would love to have S3s. I am working with HPA to install their FT425 kit. Since I am so far away from their facility, I am coordinating with a local tuner.

    You omitted the term "LOOKALIKE".

    It's not an S3 conversion until you replace the motor, in my book.

    Don't get me wrong, it's a lovely looking car, but even a REAL S3 with a standard 2.0T engine (flashed or otherwise) is not an S3 any more.

    I have to say I agree with Keith. It's been said before and this time is no different. It's not and S3 unless it's an S3.
