    Got a few things done last night, fixed my spots as they were wobbly and that, then redid the film on them as it was looking ****, fixed my cupra lip as it was pulling off, serviced my dv and got my UNITRONIC plates

    Those plats are pretty epic! Aren't you worried about unwanted attention from the cops?

    its FWD my bud, yeah its pretty big but it was designed to fit even my 16" spare wheel with no issues. Its s3 312mm disks that have been heat treated and grooved. cheaper to replace then 200quid per disk for the 330mm 2 peice disk

    hey guys

    been a busy month so far, had our annual DUBRUN and done some mods to the car.
    ill start with the dubrun.

    and now the modding......

    when we were down at the coast i was very interested in seeing what figures the car does down there

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    now reason for the run on the dyno is i live 1800m above sea level (as prawny says we are mountain goats) and i was very impressed with the figures as these are done on the wheels not on the motor so managed 230whp and 389nm

    [​IMG]

    and vid of said dyno

    UNITRONIC audi A3 1.8t stage 2+ dyno run at coast - YouTube


    next up was fitting S2000 filter

    air duct to filter (its just a temp one as i still need to do the air ducts for the brakes

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    drained oil and replaced it with motul gear 300 ( thanks to prawn for telling me about it, and thanks to ASH at goldwagen delarey for organizing )

    [​IMG]

    and did a oil change of the motor to Motul fully synth as well

    next up....

    i took my 18's off and sent them in yesterday to get the stud holes drilled bigger and full refurb of them and fitted these 16's which made the car alot lower lol

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    next up is the stud conversion.
    the reason for this is i have 4 different sets of spacers from 5mm to 20mm and 3 different sets of wheels and to carry so many different bolts for the wheels is stupid!

    1st up is the stud its 90mm in total length

    [​IMG]

    cleaning the stud

    [​IMG]

    now to put some thread lock

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    fitting the stud i used 2 nuts and locked them then turned it in

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    with all of them done

    [​IMG]

    and a 10mm spacer on

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    20mm spacers on the rear
