    Autodoc parts, thinking about buying from them, forget it now.

    Frustrating to read. I ordered some calipers on the 11th of Jan. The confirmation and tracking info came through very quickly, but has since not updated for 10 days. As said, I don't mind a bit of a wait, but if they're not actually going to arrive I'd rather know sooner so I can source elsewhere.

    Prawn and BigAls A3 Track Car

    Hi Romka, I've run both Quaife and Peloquin ATB diffs on this car in the past, and never really experienced any severe torque steer issues. This was using 8j rims with ET35 offset. If you're suffering from bad torque steer, could it be down to some mega wide wheels giving you a poor scrub...

    Lcr vs 996 calipers

    Of the two, I'd go with 996 calipers myself if you remove initial cost from the equation. They have a larger, and also thicker pad, so you're getting more life from a set of pads. Being porsche calipers you also get a very good range of track pads on offer. The LCR is quite a slimline caliper...

    Seat Leon Type R - Front cupholder same as S3 8L?

    leon was based around a pre facelift dash, and pre facelift S3's never got the cup holder to my knowledge, so I don't think it'll fit

    1.8t Quattro preface lift value?

    I was going to say sounds like an £800 car ish. So £500 sounds decent to me. At that point you can afford for it to be scrap anyway, you'd break it for more!
