Regarding the water temp gauge on the dash, just a query.. just bought another S3 8L. My old S3 warmed up very quickly, and the needle would soon stop at 90 degrees and stay there. My new one barely gets above 30-60. Even in the space of half an hour or so will never get to 90.

Little update, car is currently at Jabba Sport, where they are fitting a decat, deshrouding the injectors, reparing the sump and sending the head off to be reconditioned with new valve guides, and finally porting! Looking forward to getting it back, hopefully mid next week with a dyno printout...

Rear badges with a gunmetal grey base:

Pics of rear badges when fitted. I also have a new lower dog bone mount with powerflex bush, 3" stainless turbo back decat to fit and a Greddy catch can...
Thanks for all your advise, they are listed as 5x100 Subaru, Vw, Audi. I will ask him about the centre bore however!
Thanks for all the technical advise, this is why I love this forum for help! I will report back with findings (and pics if I buy them ;) )
I'm looking at some 18" O.Z wheels for my s3, I'm currently on 19" TT/RS4 wheels. Current size is 235 35r19 .
The wheels I'm possibly buying are 18" with an offset of et51. Will I need spacers to bring the offset down? Also what tyre size will I need for 18" wheels?
