    H&Rs are a brilliant mod:o.k:
    Amazing how much a simple spring change can make sooo much difference.

    I notice you have the front window wind deflectors on both your cars, where did you get them from? A3s suffer from water ingress badly when the window is open a crack, and i reckon this would be a good way to prevent it.

    Car looks good chief!

    Nice S3 mate but I would definately but the rear rings back on - maybe even black?

    The S3 badge looks lonely without it

    I agree, black Audi rings would look great

    I can see why Orange is one of the rarer S3 colours but its my fave thats for sure

    Cheers for comments people! next mods are going to be gloss black rear diffuser/grille/mirrors and the lower grey part on the front bumper! along with some lamin-x and window tints! and i need to get my springs fitted :)

    got them from ebay mate there team heko ones! i still get quite abit of water drip in sometimes! more if the car has been parked and i go around a corner! not sure if it improved it though as i put the deflectors on assoon as i got the car!

    yeah thinking of getting another badge and getting it sprayed black! mainly because its left a slight mark where i took the badge off! i do quite like it myself without the audi rings!

    Very nice mate. You clearly like your black rims and they suit both cars. The Vauxhall looked good too (and I don't say that very often! Lol)

    Look forward to seeing pics with the springs fitted

    How much was the clutch and where did you get it from? Any good?

    How hard was it to fit the coolant kit? I have it here but just waiting for the right time to get it fitted!

    clutch was approx 1k mate from bsh its not in yet but there meant to be good alot of the big power golfs etc run them including jonnyc etc! coolant kit havent yet fitted all the hoses! just fitted the easy ones! there are 2-3 which looks quite awkward so just going to leave them to my tuner to fit i think!

    no reason mate just that the forge one can come polished if wanted.. and think the bsh one is only black!

    should both do just as good a job as one another!
