So I haven't really updated anything in a wee while!! Last update i had just bought springs and my HPFP...these are both still sitting in the garage along with my decat waiting to be fitted!!

A couple of weeks ago i got my Team Dynamics on!! they still need refurbished but dont look to bad at the moment! I went with Pilot Sport 3's 235/40/18 upfront and 225/40/18 at the back

Really need to hurry up and get my springs on!!!

About a week after getting my wheels on i came across a K-Sport BBK that was to good a deal to pass on so last Friday i drove down to Leeds in my mates Stage 2 RS7 to collect them!! annoyingly his average consumption was alot better than i get in the s3!!

Anyway i got there and the brakes are like new! no sign of any lip on the discs and pads look brand new as well!!

Got to say as well they do look pretty good behind the wheels!!

The discs are 356mm, I'm not sure what they weigh but they're a good bit lighter than the standard ones!! Calipers come in at around 2.7kgs i believe. The set up also came with Ferado Ds2500 pads.

Now just to get the rest of the parts fitted and pull my finger out for getting Stage2+ mapped in!!!

Heres a few random photos

just with it being the way the power is split, one of my mates had the same set up and seemed to think it gave him a wee bit more grip, might make no difference but thought i would give it a try :)

Just interested....I went with 245 X 40 X 18s on TD 1.2 rims on mine.

Looking very nice indeed, haven't seen it around Aberdeen yet.

Would love a listen of the Miltek as that's hopefully my next mod after the clutch gets swapped.

If you're wanting, I'd be keen to do a shoot of it? White cars always come out well.

not been on here for a while but a few updates no pictures unfortunately.

i got my H&R springs fitted and they just weren't low enough for my liking. the plan was to always get coilovers at somepoint so after a week of having the springs on i though F**k it and ordered a set of BC Racing coilovers! had them on for a month or two now and have absolutely no complaints! great bit of kit. I've got a set of 19" Rotors from an RS3 going on next week so will play about a bit more with the ride height then and get it sitting just right.

I also got rid of my ram-air CAI and swapped it out for a Revo CAI. the silicon on the ram air was doing my head in as it always collects the dust. minor detail i know but just something that angered me haha.

the Forge PCV delete has been swapped out for a BSH catch can
