    What have you done to your A3 (8p) this week

    Installed stoptech 328 4 pot caliper kit. Grooved discs, fast road pads. Took forever and a few hairy moments driving the first 100 miles to bed in the pads but getting better, sensitive at slow speeds still not amazing at high speeds.....long term review to follow

    Anyone changed just the rear ARB on quattro?

    As the title says. I have 2.0 quattro tfsi or tsi anyway I have coil overs I want to change ARB and had mixed responses. Some say do rear only. Go for a haldex tune. H&R do only a pair. Quattro cars have thicker front than rear. Bit confused I would go for rear only but there must be a reason...

    SQ5 2017 brakes to A3 8P

    Ok fair enough I'm sure a bit of trial and error would soon help. Bit of a weird combination but they look like 4 pot brembos so wld be nice.

    SQ5 2017 brakes to A3 8P

    Does anyone know if I could put a set of SQ5 brake calipers and discs on the A3 I've got 18 inch OZ Allegerita wheels. Could also get hold of the hubs and carriers but not sure if they'd bolt on to mine. Any pointers appreciated

    Just changed my 8P for a 8V

    Totally agree. Be happy to go 20 or even 10 around schools or hospitals etc. But 20mph around town everywhere is a ****** joke.

    Urgent must prepare what questions to ask to car tuner this week!!!

    Sounds like you've still got a few things to fix before the car fully up and running strong. Get the little things fixed and then reflect on the driving experience. 260 BHP sounds about right to me. Have you changed your air intake ?

    I haven't installed the wishbone kit yet. Next month it's going on. It has anti lift kit built in and it's aluminium so will lighten up front end making steering in quicker. Better bushings etc . S3 is aluminium. Should I have bought an S3 probably but what the hell

    Interesting I tuned my 2.0 tsi k03 Quattro. Upgraded intercooler and full Miltek exhaust. I got 260 bhp without the DSG map. Tuner said I could get more out of it with the DSG mapped. Be interested to see how this turns out.
