    Post pics of your A3/S3

    Rimstyle do alot of wheels with a red lip - it's where I got mine from. Loving the "black detailing" theme you've got going there - I'm going down the same route myself ;)

    Increasing displacement ( increasing bore size)

    That's precisely what I was thinking :) Plus, if you've increased the base power of the engine, then hopefully the lag you'll see on a bigger turbo wont be so noticeable.

    Could try asking in the ICE section - Andy seems to have info on EVERYTHING!!! - given me some great pointers.

    new wheels 19s

    Love the wheels - black on lighter coloured cars look mint in my opinion (and yes, I am biased!! ) I'd go without the caps tbh - looks "meaner" - provided that wouldn't be detremental of course. Car does look a tad on the low side!! - being that low I'd be concerned about the sump plus with...

    Increasing displacement ( increasing bore size)

    As tuffty said, if you've done the right combo of mods to allow you to up the rev limiter, then to have power still coming on strong above 7.5k is worth it in my opinion - you'd definitely see an improvement in 1st through to 3rd/4th - although admitedly you'd not see it in 5th/6th (at least on...

    thinking of what to do next....

    As already said, a re-trim can be expensive - but if I was doing it then MJ Interiors would get my vote - they've done some absolutely fantastic work on Audis and VWs in the past: Only problem is they're not exactly local, but when you're forking out for...

    Carbon Wrap

    That all looks pretty good - loving the mirrors, if the ones I brought don't work out then I may turn my attention to ?E30? - (thought it was Edition 38? - the guys that used to be in all the mags for doing-up Golfs? ) Is it just sheets of CF Tom, or wraps cut to the right shapes? - got any...

    don't believe this! yet more vandalism to my car!!

    Sorry to hear your latest woes mate. It is a toughy about how you should react - but whatever you do, make sure you've thought it through!!

    Lightweight alloys.

    Not the site I was thinking of, but actually more up to date:

    Lightweight alloys.

    There used to be a website that basically listed the weight of virtually every wheel made - although that was about 3/4 years ago so newer stuff might not be on there - but I'm sure I got the link from this site (or maybe it was audiworld?! ) Audi OEM came out well, IIRC, as well as OZ and BBS

    A3 1.8 TS Quattro - newbie's tale of woe!

    First off, welcome to the site - pity your first visit isn't under better circumstances. I feel for ya mate, but really MOTs are only as good as the minute you drive out the testing garage - alot can happen in 200miles! - and as already said, it is down to the buyer to check the car out. Bit...

    few mods advice required

    Lots of people have fitted new TIPs - what you have to do is check that it will fit your engine - or can be adapted to fit your engine. If you look at the TIP that Dani fitted (pics in the thread that I posted a link too in my post above) to his APY engine, I think you'll see that there are...

    Pics of my Misano Red S3 - Thoughts on wheels, possible swap?

    Just realised that my Falkens are FK452 (not ZE 912 - like yours) and my wheels are 7.5" (as opposed to your 8"), which explains why, in my opinion, mine don't look as good as yours - I was going to go with 215/35, but the seller talked me out of it and I went with 225/40 - however, looking at...

    Pics of my Misano Red S3 - Thoughts on wheels, possible swap?

    Car's looking good - I'm into black wheels myself, so much so at the mo that I bought some myself. Don't know why, but to me the spokes look like they need a bit "more meat" on them - if that makes sense - maybe, as already mentioned, getting them coloured anthracite would look good and...
