    Standard spring differences (rears)

    Replaced my rear springs for Mot with kyb ones from Ecp they were not the 2 silver dot replacement but the ones for sport suspension they are about 20mm lower but looks good. Replaced shocks also but went for the kyb replacements on Ecp. Feels ok need to get front done now.

    Really low front suspension.

    What make shocks did you buy as I just bought some rear ones with coils from Ecp myself and getting them fitted tomorrow bit worried now.

    S3 8L FMIC - Intercooler fitment???

    Keep toying with the idea of a fmic and saw this kit ages ago just the price vs an eBay kit but would prefer something which would need no trimming to fit the bumper/fogs without too much hassle. Never liked the idea of cutting the crash bar also.

    Stock DV Broken?

    Mine has started doing this evening, I've got a forge 007 but managed to look under the bonnet while it was still light and noticed the rubber vac hose going into the top was cracked so probably why it's not working properly.
