    It the standard airbag for the rs6 steering wheel but I got it cheap as it was scratched so I smoothed it and sprayed it satin black

    That's one agressive looking sportback, b19ctr! What sidelights and Xenon bulbs are those? They match u really well.

    Looks stunning, S3 rear valance added to mod list... is it a straight swap?

    From the standard s-line suspension, how much lower is it sitting?

    Do you notice a huge difference after fitting the Forge Quick Shift?

    believe me and you have a mutual buyer friend haha, Rob the lad who bought your rear brake setup has bought my s3 front setup. nice lad, he started talking about the rears etc then said somthing about who he bought them off (you) somthing about s5 seats with stitching, so i asked more indepth and of course he described the car as yours.

    he said about you being bit done over by the guy you bought some front brakes off? hope everythings ok bud.

    I've had no issues zed. The engine is a lot smoother when it comes to power than the 140 I had before. The Quattro system is awesome I'm going to find it hard when I change cars in a few years as I'll want Quattro again.
