Thanks for information mate, I think that the following link is what you're on about: https://www.bar-tek-tuning.de/pilotlager-02m-getriebe-billetshaft

I will be getting my Spec 2+ clutch & steel SMF fitted when my stock clutch goes which will be sometime later this year, early next year I imagine as I'm at stage 2 now and the car has hit 60K. Already got a few bits I want doing at the same time such as short shifter, 42DD bushings, Fluidampr engine damper etc. so wasn't looking to spend anymore as I'm trying to save for stage 2+ parts. Guess I'll just have to see how I get on as not all SMF owners are reporting this problem, hope I'm one of the lucky one's but doubt it!

This doesn't seem to have been a problem with Spec clutches for whatever reason,but was a real problem with the Loba/Sachs SMF clutch.

Niiice looking good mate, what method was used?

They have used film , really good job , you can't even see where they have done them apart from the fact that they are now darker , I went for the medium tint .

They've done a mint job, tinted lights are a must on the S3, especially if it's dark as it just looks so much better (need to update my pic with them done).

Looks good mate.

Re 4th gear at high rpm, is thay trying to engage into 4th or disengage from 4th?
Its only going into 4th above 6500 rpm and only once in a blue moon tbh, i may get the gearbox strengthened and the input staft modification done at some point .

Haha woops, easily done! I find applying Rain-x helps to a certain degree but as long as your car gets cleaned at least twice a month then it doesn't really become much of a problem, it's definitely worth it though as it finishes off the back nicely.

The only thing left I'd change would be to have gloss black B-Pillars. I've only got the part numbers for the 3-door version but you can always wrap them which is cheaper. Sorry for giving you more ideas on how to spend your money :grimacing:


Nice.

If you don't mind asking which ones did you get and how much was your wallet hurt? Might need those in the future..

That diffuser looks lovely! Did it require any modifications?
It does look good tbh , you have to modify the lower bumper to allow the RS3 one to fit , pretty easy though, i just used my 4" grinder.

Ok , its been a while since I posted , car is going to Allumy motorsport on the 4th May for a full Vibratechnics engine mount and dogmounts fitment , they are also going to carry out a full wheel alignment for me , then off to AKS on the 21st June for the Loba 04xx to be fitted along with a few other parts ,it will then be off to R tech and left with them for the week so that Niki can get the best from the car , He has told me it should achieve around 450 bhp and 450 lbs torque which should suffice for a while , I have also fitted one of the R Tech rear braces which has made a huge difference to the rigidity of the car , off to Donnington Park as well for the Audi Tuner show and I have 2 hours of track time booked so looking forward to that .
