    Ok I have my S3 bought it standard 3 years ago and it looked like this [​IMG]Over the last couple of months I have been modding it a bit with some tasteful modifications I got the standard Avus alloys painted black[​IMG]I had the Forge 007p Recirc valve replace the oem one and fit a K&N panel filter[​IMG]After having the K&N filter on for a few months and being on the forum heard a lot of good things about Jetex cone filters I had to get one I fiited inside the oem airbox to begin with the standard TIP [​IMG][​IMG]Had this set up for a while which was good then I done the Dog bone mount bush [​IMG]Decided to get the RSTT Alloy wheels seen them on Gumtree for £300.00 with nearly new toyo proxies so went and got them.[​IMG][​IMG]They needed a refurb but just wanted them as it was a good price, I put my Avus alloys for sale on the following Friday and had sold them to a guy with a mk4 golf for £235.00 A couple of months past and didn't do any thing to the car until there was talk of a TIP that made your car fasted and louder the BADGER 5 TIP got it ordered about a month and half and i'm still loving the extra power thanks to Sideways Steve for fitting it:thumbsup:[​IMG]With that fitted I'm happy now with the power so I decided to turn my attention to the looks of the car, I had been looking at posts about lowering S3's for months and with the terrible roads that Edinburgh has I decided to go with lowering springs instead of coilovers I got the Eibach pro low kit as I saw them on Buzzers car and they looked good.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]With the car lowered I decided to get the wheels refurbed, I took the wheels off to save a bit of £££ [​IMG][​IMG]While the wheels were off getting powder coated I gave the centre caps a bit of a clean [​IMG][​IMG]I was going to have them done black but changed my mind at the last minute heres the end result dropped the wheels off on Monday and picked them up on Tuesday!!![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]Big thanks to Pete and the nice people at Pentland Powder coaters for their great workAfter the wheels were on I got my LCR splitter on was really happy with how a piece of plastic can make such a difference to a cars looks [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]Thanks for viewing

    Hey mate, did the badger 5 tip make a big differance in noise compared to the standerd one? I ask as you had a Jetex filter on your standered tip :)

    Aye when It was fitted the car felt it had a remap with the more power and torque it was only a bit louder as I had the Jetex filter on the standard TIP!

    I got some 20mm spacers a few months ago and they were the wrong offset gutted as they cost £30 and were Eibach's
