    Looks good fella, interested in a comparison between the standard s line springs compared to the H&R assuming you have kept the standard shocks? Also wondering if you have considered the B5 spring plates?

    Considered lowering caps but to be honest I use the car as my daily/family car and there are loads of speed bumps near me so I dont want it any lower or think I may drag my splitter off or get some rubbing. Rear is tucked and front is just a 1 finerger gap ride is just as good if not better than s line.

    Nice vant, the lowering (b5 perches) caps will level things out and you should be fine over speed hump's . I thought i would have the same problem as there are some massive speed humps in my work place and i was bricking it when i first reversed up my drive thinking i was going to damage my bumper so I had the welder in work make me some ramps just in case.

    This Pic shows before the B5 perch mod, to be fare i still have the same clearance now and have no need for the helper ramps.

    Am I the only person on this earth that dislikes the dtm alloys?
    In my opinion audi's look best with a five spoke or bbs rims, sorry!

    Have to say I love the look of you car, its the first B7 that I have seen with a cupra splitter that I like! I assume the spacers you have fitted are hub centric? I was looking to fit the same to mine to fill the arches abit more.

    Thanks

    Hi i have just bought avant same colour as yours,have you fitted b6 spring plates,i think my stock one definately need to be lowered a touch on the front,anyone else done this mod?Ordered rs4 arb,got 12mm spacers for the back to fit and will be ordering 10mm ones for the front.Loving the LM's on that colour car they look sweet with all the chrome trim,i would love a set but too much cash,i think i would go k04 for nearly the same money,lol.Mine has silver roof rails,are you going to audi international @combe?Will get some pics up before i start tweeking,lol,Cheers Andy

    Looks very nice.

    Just got the BSR on mine. Can you hear the a fluttery turbo blow off noise? Or is that the forge atmospheric bov spacer I have on? It's confusing me.

    Ye mines fairly loud up to about 3-4 k then it recircs and you cant hear it just the louder than usual turbo whistle. I had the spacer on for a while with my BSR but it got too loud for me with both and I thought it sounded a little tacky so removed the spacer so that is def what you can hear dont panic. Will take about a month depending on your milage but it will get louder.
