From ordering until delivery was 1 week, it converts to £295 but paypal charge £13 for currency conversion.
They were delivered by parcelforece and the proper job.
Fitted the front today and I'm very pleased.
RS4 valve tomorrow.

I'm going to use a how to from another forum.
If it's any good I'll post the link.
Since I fitted the rear bar yesterday and the front today I'd say the rear made the biggest difference but it's much flatter when cornering and doesn't under steer anymore

Paypal are a joke with charges but the cheapest I could find the bars here were £350 plus delivery with some places charging £395!!

I read the best bang for your buck is changing the rear only, front one is a pain to fit too, how did you find doing it?

Rear one 40 mins on the floor using axle stands.
Front one on a lift total time 1.5 hours that included re aligning the subframe etc.
I was surprised how easy it was.

Rear one does look easy front needs the subframe dropped I thought, fitting guide would be good

Just reading your post , I just got a 2011 sprint blue sportback s3 And Love it. I to have just got my Revo cai of Pat @LVS Racing .great guy. I to was going to go down the revo route for remap, until I have found a great tuner (tuning Werkes) just round the corner to me so going Apr now, I have noticed they normaly have have a winter software sale in November so holding out hoping for 20% off.
I also love the eibach springs on the front that 1inch drop makes it look so much sweeter.plus I understand it helps handling. Also looking at getting the bilstein b8 sprints from dpm spoke to Damien said he can get the b8 sorted to take the bilstein shocks aswell. And to complete it would like some H&R anti-roll bars.
As for the HPFP I think I'm going to go with pats November deal (great price) .
Also looking at getting the miltek turbo back with black ceramic tips love it, then here come stage2+ .
What mileage was yours when you got it chipped mines 29k at the moment, love your thread keep the good work up.
Dave

I use Tuningwerkes for all work on my car including servicing ... Reuben is an out and out APR man and has little time for most other supplier's maps. He's also good at making sure I dont spend money on silly mods (well usually think they are OK and then he points out if its worth it - suffice to say I have a few items around the house that I need to convince him to fit!!)

Eibach produce a pair that have the mounting brackets pre-fitted - I have these on mine.

Well I got my stone chips on the front sorted today , also took advantage of the good weather and fitted my Revo cai thanks to LVS racing (pat) .
This is my only mod so far ,However I swear it just feels different already seems more responsive , maybe just me. I then thought sod it I need the turbo exhaust now, so I got on the phone to BCS and ordered a sport system which will be ready in 12-14 days I know some guys have gone for the power vavle.
But my line of thought is if I. Paying £1000+ then I want to hear a little bit more then when I hit 3.500k, anyway it's ordered once I get this I will book into APR for stage 2 then save for pump and H&R anti -roll bars and some Stx or Kws (ain't made my mind up yet) was going to go down the bilstein and eibach route but don't think I will be happy with it it .
Dave
p.s is there a how to post picssome where.

Can I ask how much it all came to for the clutch, I feel at the moment every day feels like 7 days got the cai fitted, exhaust on order, saving for HPFP , and map, but have just had payout today for some prat clipping me in tesco ,been done today ( see build post for pics) and now after picking up noticed in wet not gripping to well has the Bridgestones on at the moment backs are ok but fronts are wiped out,so do I put two new on front or change all four ?
So happy you though
