    Sportback Reyland brake upgrade (front & rear), size advice

    Im just going to use a brush tbh, a small artists brush (one of those flat ones) should do the trick. Ive already bought a tin of smooth Hammerite in silver. Doesnt need to be perfect as long as a passing look makes it unnoticeable and I'll be happy

    Sportback Reyland brake upgrade (front & rear), size advice

    Should be an easy job with the wheels off to mask off the bell and put a little Hammerite or similar with a rust inhibitor on there. I know what you mean but I'll sort mine aesthetically when the weather picks up, as long as they are performing as expected I dont really mind

    Sportback Reyland brake upgrade (front & rear), size advice

    Not sure mate, youd be better speaking to Dave henderson (dh automotive) who supplied/installed them for the technical stuff! Sorry bud

    Sportback Reyland brake upgrade (front & rear), size advice

    Fronts are a bit more corroded than the rears but all have it. So far as I said earlier, I've done about 1000 miles commuting around 40miles a trip to work on a mixture of A roads and M (to give you an idea of speed/brake cycle), this was before the cold snap and salt was down on the roads too...

    Sportback Reyland brake upgrade (front & rear), size advice

    Here you go, just see it on this one on the rotor close to the bell. Ill be painting that little surface silver for aesthetics but apparently they dont come with a corrosion type protection as they are a motorsport disc? Could be wrong there but I'm certainly experiencing some surface corrosion...

    Sportback Reyland brake upgrade (front & rear), size advice

    I have the bigger Reylands on my saloon, I've only done about 1000 miles on them so far but I havent had any balance type issues, funny noises or anything. My only criticism of them is they do kinda corrode up a bit, specifically the inner part of the disc. I will be using the car on track for...

    Rs3 saloon

    as above, no faults so far after about 16months of ownership and taking the car to stage 2 (stage 3 inbound!) The only thing I have noted is the key fob seems to like batteries. Ive had to replace them twice in this time and has caught me out locking me out of the car. I now carry a spare...

    Do people notice your RS3?

    nope, under the radar - just how I like it, full on stealth mode!

    Saloon Turbo blankets, exhaust/intake wrap Yes/No?

    Turbo blanket and heat wrapped exhaust DP and turbo intake... good/bad idea on my FL RS3. Turbo blankets and wrap seem pretty cheap but I dunno if there are side effects on a daily vs race car in terms of turbo life etc. Anyone running about with this sort of thing?Tangible benefits...

    Track days ?

    Thanks man, I'll probably see you at knockhill at some point mate but I'll try to update with my views on the disc/pad combo after some track time!

    Track days ?

    Haha Thanks mate, yeah it is stage 2 APR although I am working up the funds to go to stage 3 but I'm thinking of switching over to MRC at stage 3. I would like a safe and reliable 600hp, the car is my daily driver so it needs to be a n all rounder for me. In other news, dave has just ordered...

    Sportback Brake discs!

    Group buy you say?? Where can I enquire about this? Is it still available?

    Track days ?

    Yes I have mate, my brother is super keen on trackdays in his Lotus so hes been pushing me to use the car on track rather than my daily commute! I know Dave also, probably not as well as you though but the car is in to his tomorrow for an inspection and I'll work out from there whats needed to...

    Track days ?

    Following this post! I've also done a few track days in my RS3, starting to feel a little judder (possibly warped discs) when braking hard from 130ish down to 70ish so I'm looking to upgrade discs, pads and fluids. Might even go the whole hog and get an aftermarket set, I hear AP radi-cal get a...

    Lowered but NO RUBS

    Read some of the "show me your wheels" threads, I'm looking at 19s now and it seems from my basic searches that a 20mm drop on 19s wearing 235 35 rubber is perfect. Good luck

    Upgraded clutch for s3 manual

    Exactly Mike, I am happy with this software but breaking 400hp would be better so I'm moving up the stages. Yeah I got pre and post software runs, the car made pretty much exactly what it was meant to and certainly feels much quicker.

    Upgraded clutch for s3 manual

    APR software Mike, made a huge difference to performance. I looked into Revo but my nearest installers customer service wasnt great, left me waiting over an hour while they went for a McD then took 2 weeks to get back to me with availability. While I was waiting I popped into my APR dealer and...

    Upgraded clutch for s3 manual

    Cheers Mike, VRS were one of the places I made original enquiry to, I'll maybe ping them again and see what all the options are - I didnt find any tuner sites very useful when it comes to this stuff and I've had some advice recommending SMF over DMF, thats coming from a couple of different...
