    Wiper Delete Help :)

    How often do you clean your car then bro, as you'd need to leave it for ages for you not to be able to see out of it? I had an m3 for a few years and they have no rear wipers, driving was not a problem. You dont miss what you dont have. i still forget now that my A3 has a rear wiper coz i'm so...

    Coilovers p@&sing me off what to do?

    I havent got the bentleys on N8, i'm on the standard 17's with the chunky tyres and the ride is still terrible. car bounces all over the place. TBH i'm thinking of selling up and going for an A4 instead, as having a 3 door and a 13 month old daughter just aint practical. Is air ride comfortable?

    Coilovers p@&sing me off what to do?

    Hi mate I'm in the same boat as you, i recently fitted V maxx coilovers and it has ruined the ride of my A3, bumping and crashing all over the shop. It's that bad that i actually hate driving the car now. I will be taking the V maxx off asap and probably going for springs instead.

    Whats your Coilover Experience like???????

    I wouldn't say that my car is that low tbh, and the handling isnt an issue, its the fact of how fecking hard the ride is, go over a bump and it shoots me out the seat. lol

    Whats your Coilover Experience like???????

    i agree with what you say, i had KW V3's on my M3 and they were superb, it's just i didnt wanna pay top prices for suspension for a car that cost £6k. Although looking at it now i will have too as i wont be keeping the V Maxx for much longer.

    Whats your Coilover Experience like???????

    Ok, wanted to start this thread to get peoples feedback on certain makes of coilovers, how was the drop, how was the ride like etc. I've recently fitted V maxx coilovers to my A3 and although the build quality is great for the money i cant help but feel the ride of my A3 has been ruined. I've...

    Paul-S3's Project StealthTDI build thread.....

    I was leaning more to red N8 just to give it a dash of colour. Also, can i get shorter springs for my rears? I've swapped the adjusters over to the oem rubber mount and it's still way too high at the back. I dont really wanna have to change the coilovers if i dont have too. This is how it sits now

    First Time Swirl Removal

    Dont be scared of using a DA on your audi, like its been said already the paintwork is rock hard on audi's. Only downside is your gonna have to work a little harder to get them swirls out. I thought i'd do a little test on my bonnet with my machine polisher just to see what i was up against with...

    Paul-S3's Project StealthTDI build thread.....

    The good news is i have sorted out the rubbing issues on the front. I jacked up the car this morning, unscrewed the arch lining bolt and cut off the plastic clip. Took it out for another spin and the rubbing has gone. You can see on the pic below where the tyre was obviously catching the screw...
