As we all know, the ignition system on these things is utter scrap.
A mate mentioned doing a single coil conversion from a Vauxhall Cavalier/Vectra 2.0 16v engine (X20XEV).
Does anyone have any info regarding this?
I know this aint a Skoda fabia forum, but it is a very similar car.......
Im currently in talks with my work about buying a 56 plate Fabia VRS thats just been traded in.
However there is a couple of problems....
The car itself has done 65K miles, has some fancy grey/blue leather seats front...
I bought the very same adaptors off eBay mate and i had no problems at all. Well made, quick delivery and worked perfectly.
Id recommend them highly rather than pay over the odds for H&R ones. Badge tax imo!
Ok, first update.
I raised the front up about an inch and its faaaaar better already!
New tyres is next (215/45/17), and im also watching some 25mm hubcentric spacers on eBay as i currently have 10mm spacers on and its still not got enough 'poke'.
Whats the best method for a rear ARB? New or...
If you want chatter then just block off the pipe running to the DV. Sounds great but not good for the Turbo.
Otherise just run an open cone and you should still hear a hiss type noise with the standard DV. I do!
Cant beat induction roar though! Im the only one out of my mates who doesnt have a Civic haha.
I find T1R's are better for lighter cars as they are very soft. A3 is quite a heavy car for its size.
I shall search for some spacers, fit my bigger tyres and raise it up. See how i get on with that!
Nothing wrong with a Civic. Far more reliable for starters! Standard against standard it is far faster, better handling, looks better and newer also!
Anyway, back to the Audi. I shall change wheels and tyres and raise it up for now i reckon.
Im thinking along the same lines!
I have some 215/45 Continentals somewhere to fit and i knew these cheap coilovers were only a temporary idea anyway.
Im sick of having my ARB rubbing on my driveshaft constantly!
Whats a tried and tested suspension kit thats not going to break the bank...
The way my car sits at the moment means i cant drive it properly fast, as the main thing is the ride height is just far too low.
Im torn between either handling or looks.
Is there a good combination of both?
Basically, whats the best wheel/tyre size combo and also suspension setup? I want to...
