    For Sale S3 8l rear control arms

    I've got 2 rear control arms for sale. One is new I put on back in February and I've hardly done any miles since then. The other is in good condition. They also have strongflex poly bushes fitted and they've been in less than a year. Only selling because I've put coilovers on and needed to go...

    Stance coilovers

    Yeah it was never my intention to run them so low. I wound them up 30mm on the fronts before I put the wheels back on but obviously wasn't enough. The car drives great I've been on a few **** roads and its no worse than before. The problem I had was the car felt very floaty at high speeds (above...

    Stance coilovers

    OK a quick update on the stance coilovers. I bit the bullet and ordered a set on Monday. They came yesterday and I fit them today. I've had a few cars with coilovers before but this was my first set I've fit myself. They didn't come with any information or instructions but they were pretty...

    Stance coilovers

    Haha they do say buy cheap by twice but what I have to say is buy cheap because I have a crazy wife 3 kids and no money . I've read a couple of reviews of people putting them on mk1 TTs and they were saying that they were not as harsh or as crashy as they were expecting and they were surprised...

    Stance coilovers

    Yeah I hear what your saying pal but that is just for the rear shocks. Once you add in front shocks and lowering springs it starts to add up. I had some cheap **** ebay 1ns on a skoda vrs I had. The lad I got the car off had them wound right down. It was almost undriveable, but once I raised...

    Stance coilovers

    Has anyone tried the stance coilovers on there S3 8l on here? I know they're cheap and I know they won't be as good as a good set of shocks and springs but I am on a bit of a budget. Plus my Mrs would hate the car on coilovers so I'm definitely going down that road.

    Vinyl wrap

    Good evening you lovely people. Does anyone know of a good colour match vinyl wrap? My paint code is ly7w and from what I've read the 3M 1080 G120 is meant to be a good match. I'm just planning on wrapping the side skirts, they're looking a bit old and shabby.

    My car hates me

    Does anyone on here recognise my car? I know the car looks standard and it doesn't really stand out but the plate has been on the car from nearly new and was hoping someone on here might have owned it? Just trying to get a bit of history.

    My car hates me

    Not fast at all, just normal traffic driving. I'd just picked the kids up from school. I'd seen the silver project ones but I'd put an offer in of £90 on the ebay ones and he excepted. It must be the Yorkshire in me that makes me stupid and frugal.

    My car hates me

    Haha I think you will have to. You may have just jinxed yourself. Next time you hit a pothole they might explode into a thousand pieces. At least we don't have a lot of potholes on our beautiful British roads

    My car hates me

    It must be just luck of the draw. Luckily mine snapped after a few weeks so I got a full refund. I'm way past the point of no return now with everything I've replaced since I got it. I've just got to keep going with it. It's just a crappy that it's my daily driver and I start work at 3 in the...

    If yours are the same as these and you've had them on your car for years I think you are very lucky pal.

    My car hates me

    Yep. I had some cheap ebay adjustable ones on a few month ago and the o/s rear snapped after a few weeks. So I poly bushed the standard tie bars and replaced them and the n/s snapped this time. It past its MOT last Friday and a week later its cocking its leg up like a giddy cocker spaniel.
