    On all my other cars I start with the suspension, poly bushes etc.
    Whats the best upgrade to start with on the S3, springs, dampers, poly bushes, rear arb??

    I may have a remap at some point but I like to get the cars handling sorted 1st, already got braided brake lines, decent fluid & new discs to fit, will prob get some pads on there at some point as well..
    Cheers

    theres a few options Steve,I chose Koni FSD's and HnR springs lowered 25mm with R32 ARB's.
    I was recommended these for optimum handling by Stealthracing,some go for Bilstiens

    if i wanted to spend the money & could start again with my car, i would go poly bushes, coilovers, ARB's (H&R), brembos, FMIC, ForgeDV, uprated TIP, turbo down pipe, miltek or similar & then a remap + consider a hybrid conversion.

    Or just drop a bi turbo out of an RS4

    I will be starting soon..(when enough $ are in) and i think ill go this way:
    Car already have sports springs and damps;

    - ARB 22mm front and 19mm rear probably neuspeed
    - Pollen or cone air filter
    - Forge 007 dv
    - 3" Downpipe (maybe decat too)
    - Ferrodo/EBC pads + black diamond discs
    - Remap

    and thats it. around 1200$ US (im still shopping) :D and hopefully enough bhp (200+)
