    Hey mate, car looks good with the TT Comps, I had them on my S3 when i brought it, then went back to the standard Avus's, still very nice though, had a set on my Mk3 GTI as well.

    my Aussie version, following installation of a set of Koni coilovers

    it does emphasise how undersized, both diameter and width, the wheels are

    Cheers steviet

    the one shown was a ebay special, i think it was from ashsiliconehoses but the silicone joiner and alloy bend are from my Forge Kona carbon CAI kit (the pic shown is my winter setup)

    How did you find the DV relocation kit, any good?

    Oh cool,im just looking into what air filter set up to get.As at the mo i have the oe box smoothed with a cold air feed.Was just thinking of gettong an induction set up or just get an uprated panel filter.Whats it like with the filter on?

    Ermmm cant say i have noticed anything mate at the mo.i think it gives better life to the turbo as its giving cold air back dude.

    with the filter as pictured is sounds great with the induction roar and loud dump from the 007p but its just sucking hot air in from the bay :-(

    With the Kona CAI fitted the noise is cut with less roar but a nice pitch and a good dump sound still just no where as loud altho i beleive perfomance wise just fitting a pannel filter to a smoothed air box is the way forward!

    When i first put the CAI kit on i did think i noticed a perfomance increase but that could just be noise playing tricks on me. car did make 160bhp before it was mapped tho with the addition of a cat back sys tho:)

    From the pic in your sig I would've said no, but from the front... maybe 10-15mm would be :icon_thumright:
    The TT Comps look great when shiney!

    Edit: Try PW Motorsport for the spacers.

    Thanks, was not sure it would look any good but with the ABT grill it looks pretty good. I heated the lights in the oven til the glue was soft and then i removed the lense. I removed al lthe chrome off to the bare plastic with the mrs' nail varnish remover and sprayed it black with satin paint. its nice cuz it is different still, makes mine stand out a little from the crowd. glad you all like :D
