    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

    A quick introduction along with this pic. Here is my 2002 225 S3. Absolute Red. Owned the car just over 1 year now and have enjoyed every minute. Car has done just a shade over 55000 miles. I also own a MK1 Golf Gti 1983 in Black and the masterplan is to respray the MK1 this summer from shell and completely rebuild then find a B5 RS4 in Nogaro Blue to finish off the trio, consider the RS4 as a family car.

    Welcome to ASN. Sounds like you have good taste! I'd love a black Mk1 GTi and a Nogaro Blue B5 RS4 too... Would be a great combo!

    Thought i'd better finally post some pics of my car.

    Finally got round to giving it a really good clean, spent about 4 hours on it, but well pleased with the results.

    Looks good Steve.

    You can certainly tell the weathers picking up with the amount of clean cars appearing in threads all over the place :)
