    i always wonder how is driving trough the corners (and i mean "real" driving) with that wide spacers infront. Its obviesly you do that because of agressive look of the car, witch is werry nice i admit that but man that wide spacers in the front of car making car undrivable trough the corners. Dont get me wrong mate your car looks absolutly great (i like the rims just in another colour but thats my opinion)

    cheers

    In what way would a wider front and rear make it undriveable through corners? in my opinion it makes the car less twitchy and feel planted through the corners.. Only real downside is turning circle which is slightly larger than without spacers.

    Just my view from experience.. I am no physicist :p

    @Pubemammal. Does the front tires rub on the fenders?

    Have you ever heard of Ackerman system - do you know how it works ? well just to let you know if you put spacers in front of car (ackerman system is only infront of car and its basicly geometry of the steering wheel) then you destroy that ackermans system.

    It is not my car buddy. All I know is I run adaptors/spacers all round and my car is a lot better through corners than when it was stock. Maybe this is to do with it being lower.

    As far as the ackermann system is concerned.. surely if both wheels are spaced equally then the system still applies.

    my friend if it would be that easy then they would extend racing car simply by delivering spacers but they dont do that - they put extended suspension arms just because of ackermans system because its also important where is the center of the front wheel (viewed from above) now if you put spacers you move that center out ;)

    Hi all I'm proberly in the wrong place but I'm thinking of putting black s3 bumpers and side skerts on my 99 a3 as I am going for a black and blue colour scheme I haven't seen any other a3's like this just wanted some input on it before I go ahead and do it.

    i am sure you aint gonna put side skirt of audi S3 8l on audi A3 because its to much work to do that. You need a lot body work on car to do that and change almost half of a car; you need front wings of S3, bumpers of S3, side skirt of S3, and a lot of work on back side wings to (best option is to change them to or to change atleast down parts of them) - anyway its not worth to do that - think twice befor you start that big project ;)

    Cheers mate really like the way the s3 looks but if its that much work I will just wait until I get a new car then I'll have a look at a s3. But I am intrested in doing the black and blue scheme so might go with a3 bumpers in black thanks for the reply.

    thanks for the intrest the spacers sound large but that is because the wheels were spec,d a lower offset then standard so they sat in futher then the spacers were machined to give the perfect offset as it was easyer to do it that way then getting wheels that sat out to far and caught the body work. and as for the way the car handles its great and with the tyres is very hard to get un stuck and i will be using the car on a few track days next year

    1 owner, 69K when i bought it 10 months ago. I've done 15k in it so far, perfect daily driver for a 1600 mile trip around Ireland and a thrash at the ring.

    think i might remap it at some point. Awesome machine the S3 is.

    :)

    Lost my front plate, whoops. Need to cut a bit more off the back of my bumper to make it sit a bit more flush around the lower valance.

    Bit the bullet, free 63mm universal intercooler piping, made it fit! And I don't think there's many more practical mods left under here, perhaps a big audi racing sticker on the inlet mani, bound to net me another 15bhp
