    Also, was that strut brace an eBay one?? If so that looks well made to be fair. I've been umming and ahhing about getting the genuine one from Audi for my motor - but at £80ish vs £40ish on ebay, I just am not sure!!

    Animal:
    They do make a massive difference. alot sharper steering. tho im going from past experience on my RS, A4 mk2 golfs and Scooby. (these were all lowered) The A3 one is not actually on yet as it started to pi$$ down. they do make a noticable difference i think. I mate try and find a rear 1 as well.

    mattyboy:
    I just gone for New O/E mounts and bearings. The other bushs (ARBs wishbones and engine mounts) are all powerflex ones.

    Yup, early APY car's didn't have them, later ones did though... I didn't even have the stud bits on top of the turrets where they bolt on, so drilled right through.

    Mine must be a late spec APY as mine has a strut brace and there are studs there

    I guess a good way to know if the braces make a difference is for one of us with them as standard, takes it off for a day?? I reckon if missing youve more chance of noticing?

    My friends just ordered JOM coilies for his Bora, hopefully fitting them in the week. How low do they go.

    Let us know what you think about them and the fitment of them.

    Be interested to hear what difference the strut alone makes.

    Would there be any negative effects of installing one on a 1.6 A3? Would I need to change any parts at the same time? It's not lowered (and can't be from an insurance financial point of view)

    MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRREEEE

    98.9% finished the induction now. just waiting for a new simota cone (in red) and another bit of mirrored stainless steel. and my induction pipe to give it more a an air feed. I have only driven it up the road to see what it sounds like.. it is niiicee!! but will at some point get the VAG-Come gains up when someone comes round and does it for me! lol the plate on the bottom you see has been heat resist treated (what it said on sale add) plus i covered it in heat proof foil shizzle like pictured on the under side.

    Has the brace made any difference then? Worth the dough?

    That looks nice and shiney, not a bad place to put the filter. How does it seem on a run does the filter stay cool in that location?

    i have just come back from the school run. left the car running whislt she went in and got the boy. drove 1 mile to iceland waited for her to come out with milk and then drove home 2 miles. as soon as i got home i popped the bonnet. The air filter and ali pipe is STONE cold. the head sheild is warm. It hiss`s when i accelerate, (smoothly are aggressivly) and it flutters nicely too!

    the car is standerd. it boosts at 10psi, spikes at 11.5. There is more push back in the seat (words of the missis) and as you know mark, she dont care about cars and she noticed a difference. I need to get vag com on it to have hard evidence. The rain didnt seem to affect it either so, so far, its doing as i hoped.

    deffo improvment!
