    Nice Car but in my opinion, OEM Wheels are way better than those Lambo Reps....

    I have a local guy with a orange s3 with these wheels, looks good. But I also really like the oem ones too. Btw did you say audi is getting back to you for buckets .... you better be sitting down when you hear the price lol. And audi dont sell the bucket seats as a whole, you need to buy the bits seperately and put them together, I was told this when I asked my audi dealer.

    nice mods mate. im undecided about the wheels, at first glance they dont look all that, but the more you stare, the more you start to like them, then i read the Focus ST statement.... :iagree:

    mmm, just seen wheels in the flesh tonight and I must say they look great - the 19" with H&Rs fit the arches nicely. They aren't chrome, they are silver...

    Not big fan of the wheels but love the interior mods, how difficult/expensive was it to install the mfsw?

    Thanks

    Good, i hope you can finally get it sorted. You best double checking how the mic should be wired so that you can use the bluetooth & SDS hack together though hopefully they will know.

    Did you have a normal mfsw as standard or did you install all controls yourself?

    Hi mate when I bought the car me and the guy were talking about the giac flashloader as I had my cupra R mapped with giac and he then said it had a superchip aswell so I don't if the two work together or not but when I'm wanting a bit of fun then it's the flashloader I use either on pump or race all I know is a superchip has definately been fitted as I said I have the receipt

    hi mate was at a4 audi today getting my AC sorted , saw your car there. Wheels look good in the metal just need to stick the centre caps on.
    Saw your Flashloader as well sitting on the seat...
    ive spent so much money there their fixing my AC for free as they got a new points card system. I think with my new GIAC stage 2 map and the killer torque + hard driving past few months I'm getting some dreaded clutch slip....ekkkkkkk may uprate to the Sachs clutch i'll see what Andy can fit that for
