    wow we had the same idea at exactly the same time, what are the chances eh :wacko:

    aye i was planning to drop the back part of the exhaust to change the clamps in the middle at the same time as the bolts are almost none existent and it blows when cold

    how is ur rear heat shield attached btw?

    16mm? Surely that's about the same as the S3 one isn't it? I fitted a 19mm to mine.

    the standard one on the S3 is a 15mm, I didn't want to go upto a 19mm as I am pretty happy with the handling of the car, although I think with the wee tweak at the back of the 16mm bar and the new bushes will make it just right

    well that's my opinion anyway

    damn, he gave me the wrong thing then, any idea what size of nuts as the ones on mine are pretty rusted?

    yeah i noticed on ETKA there are 2 listed for the S3 a 14mm and a 15mm, i used the calliper devices on mine and they seemed to think it was a 15mm
