thanks for the info regarding wheels, but im not sure 9" will fit a sportback, and the 245 tyres are another 1kg heavier, undoing the purpose of going as light as reasonably possible
as to the reylands - brilliant! a million times better than oem
i went 385, which weigh the same as the 380...
im pondering my next move for my road only car - i currently have stage 1, rear ARB, reyland brakes 385/350mm, ds performance pads, custom dsg box remap and powerflex caster and camber front bushes.
keep the square 235 setup on MPS4S as the 255 ones seems to cause possible traction control...
so after quite a few conversations, turns out that most of the dsg remaps dont do much for the dq500 - the long list of mods listed by the tuners is mostly for the dq250 and they seem to change only the speed of gearchange, torque limit and gearbox rev limiter for the dq500, possibly with the...

ive fitted the 385mm reylands floating disks - they are the same weight as the 380 (also the same weight as the oem wavy disks, 11.5kg) and come with a spacer bar and elongated bolts as already suggested, and proper sided curved veins in the rotors.

i still never got to adjust the steering support power - the 80% and 60% options feel a lot more weighty, but the changes are lost at power off/on
anyone got any other security logins to enable steering support power to be saved permanently?
i had the same problem with maps not being recognised as valid updates - i tried 3 times last month
this month, i downloaded again and suddently the car recognised and took the map update. same pc, same sd card so maybe audi have fixed something on the map download
