    Looks good.

    Question, have any of the S3 members got mud-flaps attached? I brought some for my 1.8T and they fit like a glove. Think they were brought from Vag-parts.

    Can anyone supply images on an S3 with the same flaps? It's something I've been considering for mine.

    Looks good, doesn't seem to have made quite such a big difference as they did on mine though. What bits have you got fitted?

    h&r`s lowering sprngs and billys. One thing to note the front tyre has changed from a toyo to a avon and looks a looks a lot better imo. Think I have taken the 2nd picture a little lower.

    im happy with the ride and height, think the biggest diff is the rear

    Have you gone for the adjustable tie bars, and had the geometry setup? It made a huge difference to mine the turn in changed dramtically. SO next thing is ARBs then?

    Sportecs are bitchin', good to see some different alloys for a change, they suit the silver colour really well too.

    its very good on most roads but if you hit a suncken manhole then you feel it. My dad liked it so must be good as he was worried I was going to ruin it and hed no longer want to borrow it lol.

    Scott your not far from me really Im in Huddersfield near emley moor mast. If you want a test run let me know we could meet up. On hol for 2 weeks from Sunday but just let me know. I actually work at junction 41 on the M1 so even nearer isn`t it or am I getting my directions mixed up ????

    oh and yes had to do geometry twice as they fecked up the first time

    still like it, I do feel the bumps on some roads, the roundabout where the m62 and M1 meet is bad but all in all im very happy.

    The billys are about £100 a corner and tbh I wouldn`t do the springs alone, shocks first if I had to choose one first.

    Yeah I think that it would be a bad move upgrading the springs without shocks Scott.
