    Car looks great although really needs lowering a touch more to properly pull off those wheels! Or get rid of the stetch tyre as that makes the arch gap look even bigger :(

    Cheers guys,

    They are Rota Grid Drifts & the specs are 18 x 9.5 et23 I've had them fitted with 225/40's with alittle stetch could have gone 235 or 245.
    I haven't fitted any spacers but I'm thinking maybe 3-5mm spacer on the back

    Your 100% right it does need more low's which I do plan on doing once I get it back on the road

    Pat

    9.5x18!? Surprised how well it fits! I wonder if they'll clear my big brakes though.

    No, there's loads of room!
    I'm thinking 50-60mm lower, the stretch will help loads.
    Got them from Rota, I use to go school with the MD of Rota, I didn't get them cheap before you ask.
    But I could ask if you want?

    Lambo brembo's 4 pot's from the rear of the Gallardo. The Aston Martin Vanquish also shares the same calipers. They're massive!

    Sorry for the **** mobile pic and car was dirty! Just finished the Forge fmic before this pic ........

    Thanks guys, appreciate it :) I'll try to wash it once a week (but the cold has stopped me from doing that now lol) Then i speed detail it every couple of days to keep on top of it. I park in my driveway which has leaves and dust blowing everywhere and my work car park is outdoor surrounded by trees so i get alot of **** settling on the car from that! I use Auto Glym Super Resin Polish every 2 weeks and it really helps with the shine and maintenance! Easiest product to ever apply and buff off!!

    The brakes - the pads are more expensive than others yes, purely because the pads are also shared by Lambo's, Ferrari's, Audi R8's, and Aston Martin's. These are all for the rear of the cars btw. Mine are EBC Red Stuff which are around £140? I'm running LCR discs which are 323mm. That's the biggest 5x100 disc you could fit in it.

    Wow, what a beautiful S3, Ajay. You've obviously put a massive amount of thought, cash and love into your project with this and the car is a credit to you. Stunning!! :wub: xx

    Man that looks cool. Very similar to my new track mode but I have lime green wheels and lime green tow eye.
