    Hi all, being a forum novice, I would like to ask your opinions and advice....

    In the absence of a genuine S3 or RS3, I would like to have a go at making my own. I am going for a VF Engineering supercharger kit for my A3 3.2. I am also going for KW Variant 1 coilovers, in the hope of mitigating the nose-heavy handling a bit.

    What body kits, or combination of body kit parts, would you go for to get an S3/RS3 look? How about a bespoke wide arch look, with wider track?

    Thanks in advance for hints, tips, hoots of derision, etc.! Rachael

    I'd hang on for the S3, it'll be anounced pretty soon and the 3.2 is too front heavy to handle properly...

    Some of the recent rumours suggest more like 272bhp but who knows.

    Doesnt the 3.2 Q handle the same as the R32 mk5 cuz that car handles pretty well for a big engine up front???
