What size spacers did you get? Also don't forget to buy some new longer locking bolts
Did you end up buying some window clips as I bought 8 by mistake if you need a couple? I will be fitting mine tomorrow along with the new buckets when they arrive.
Nice S3 mate! £280 is a ****ing bargain for a cat back exhaust! Does it sound good? Cant get that youtube video to play. Like the boost gauge too!
I have gone for 10mm on the front and 20mm for the rear for the RSTT wheels. bolts are sorted :icon_thumright:
I have got my window clips here, let me know how you get on! Make sure you get some pics up of the seats once they are in!! What harnesses are you going for?
Cheers mate, I paid a little bit more than that and it was built on the car. I think it sounds lovely, sounds exactly like the you tube clip if you can get that to work. Am tempted to get some cupra r wheels like yours but not sure how they would look on a blue s3.....
Nice work mate, the car is looking good. I had a similar dilemma with my RSTT's and ended up going with gunmetal grey powdercoated which has made me like the wheels again
The only thing i dont like about them is they are only 7.5J. Although mine have 215s on them, defo putting 225s on them when i need new tyres.
...Managed to scan the car for fault codes and only had one which i was reasonably happy with. New sensor ordered and being installed on wednesday.
Just catching up on your mod progress Adam, car is looking really nice now.Love the stance of it!
You do understand what this code means right?... I would say you have replaced your N249 for nothing bud... this code is related to when the ECU uses the N249 valve to operate the dump valve as it has seen an issue and needs to dump boost... the mechanical failure indicates you either have done an N249 bypass so the ECU can no longer dump boost anyway or your dump valve is ineffective and the ECU hasn't seen the boost drop its expecting so it throws this code...
As you have a baileys DV I would imagine this is the issue... would have been better off just replacing it with an OE dump valve tbh...
The fault code won't come back until the next time the ECU needs to try and dump boost...
If the N249 was faulty its normally an electrical reason and would come up as open circuit or short to earth etc..
When i scanned the car for fault codes this was the only one to pop up. As im still learning my way around the 1.8t engine i thought i best nip upto my local garage where they advised me to replace the sensor. I did this and the fault has not reappeared. I still have my oem valve in the garage so if it does appear again in the future i will switch them back over.
Normally the only reason the ECU needs to intervene like this is due to an over boost situation... this points to other problems... its one of those fault codes thats a symptom rather than a cause if you see what I mean...
What does your boost spike to on spool?
looking really nice fella, loving those wheels and im jelouse of the black... im stuck with silver uuurgh!-)
Look sick man!!!:icon_thumright:
Thats the exact rim I was considering changing mine to!
Thats the one Pal. People only get excessive vibrations due to tightening the center bolt up too tight. Its upto you mate, ive got solid steep bushes and poly bushes all over and love my car but some people find it harsh. Its whatever your comfortable eith.
Car is looking great Adam, what did you do with your RSTT's?
Cheers JNP. I did advertise them on here but didn't get much interest so i put them on ebay and they sold. If i had known you may have been interested i would have offered them to you for a good price as your from the forum and i see you live local to me.
