    Nice facelift. Hope to see more ;)
    Change your light bulbs with Osram or Phillips they will be a major upgrade. I'm running with oem d3s philips

    Hi mate, the first as you probably know are OEM bulbs- the ones that Audi would supply if you went there for a set. The second are just replica's of the OEM bulb, quality will not be as good - but they should work fine. They may not last as long though.

    OEM light output is 4300k check the chart below as the second set you posted are 6000k so a better colour IMO match the LED's better, I'd give the second one's a try I'm sure a couple of guys have used their bulbs in the older bi xenon headlight

    Yes mate, that's pretty much what I said above :p lol.

    Here's a lil sneak peak at my one, not quite finished yet but all put together... I need some S3 sills though, small bit of wiring and coding

    [​IMG]

    Spent the better part of an hour trying to get that bloody S3 badge of the grill, but still couldn't shift it, back to the bodyshop tom for a few tweaks and they'll sort it then

    Not sure about those mappers, never heard of them bro. Nice looking seat though :) did you get wheels and drop sorted?

    When you say shake when starting what do you mean?

    Not yet hopefully over the next 2 weekends going to try getting the wheels refurbed,powder coated and get the drop sorted...on both.
    what setup have you gone with??? if you go 4 the s-line springs is it a matter of just changing the springs?
    that seat was mine b4 the misses took a liking to it...I do take it off her hands at times tho...but i prefer my a3 by far
    turn keys in the ignition and the front shakes for aprox 1-3 seconds....
    have been told a hotstart can sort this out which involves a remap and the guy was saying he will do something like an ecotune which should help economy and the remap will focus less on increasing power..its all new to me so i thought ad get some more info

    Well from what I have read most maps are pretty generic, if that's somewhat true then your economy map will probably be about 170bhp, 60nM plus on torque and claimed up to 20% fuel increase. I've heard of that tune to helps with dodgy start ups, but that was something to do with cold starts and the engine cranking a lot before firing up. This can be a couple of things, battery starter or maybe temp sensors.

    The shaking I have only heard about when the car is idling in which case torsion valve timing or dual mass flywheel (if DSG) are usually the culprits. Actually come to think of it the remap was suggested as a cure for the shaking too, as when air con switched on it stops.... I;m not sure your problem is the same though. Sounds like your car starts fine but then shakes a bit before settling if I read you correctly? Or is it shaking on idle?/ When in neutral...

    Its not shaking once the car is started. jus while turning the key...so you could be right
    He has said if it does not fix the issue,.I dont have to pay...so he seems quite confident...he also has said he has done a few now so see how that goes
    have you sorted your drop yet???

    Just got some used v-max coilovers 150!!!!! yes 150!!!!
    So will be getting these fitted soon to my car as the front has still not bedded in after a month thinking of a 45mm drop...or should i still wait???
    Does anybody know if the s line springs are compatible with the seat leon mk II?
    It is a sport reference which I believe has a 15mm factory drop...please correct if i am wrong i have forgotten most of the info on seats since the mrs has started to use the car
