    Think 280 bhp is a bit high imo.

    Thanks.

    Do you mean you think it's not a correct figure or that's too much power for the car?

    i havnt got am s3, but from reading other threads etc ive seen alot of talk on how much you can expect from an s3, with a phase 2 remap, the phase 2 remap would mostly increase throttle responce etc, around 260 bhp is what ive seen and read others talking about. An s3 owner will correct me if im wrong though lol the s3 can handle way higher than 280bhp around 400bhp i believe or more even?

    I like the line 'I bought RS4 alloys as they have more grip than the standard alloys'
    how does an alloy grip ?

    The guy sounds like a tool, ebc brakes are not what id call a performance upgrade, mre like a de-grade and whats with the 280bhp b***ocks, more like 265bhp, and that cars never seen a performance induction kit, more like a panel filter, or no sorry hes put a sticker on the airbox which must add at least 10bhp if not more.

    Sorry im that way out today lol.
