It hasn't actually happened yet, but these arrived today :). I've got them booked in to be fitted in 2 weeks time. The wait's gonna bug me!

Don't get me car until Sunday.

But, I did have a thorough spring clean of the garage yesterday and also got some carpet samples and put those on the brick pier on the drivers side so we don't have any door related disasters.

Just received today my LEDs kit from t8upd (thanks again for the excellent service):

- 4 x Red LEDs for the door warning
- 4 x Upgraded white LEDs for the door puddle
- 1 x White LED for the glovebox

Will install them ASAP and report back.

No photo but the car got its chassis notch today so now the front end sits level.

Tomorrow's plans are looking good though :)

Couldn't you find the large discs?.... :D:D:D:D
Ha! Tbh, I did have 380mm discs on order but changed it to these 356mm just incase I had fitment issues.

Notched? It been in a bump.
No mate, chassis notch where the drive shaft hits the chassis leg when aired out. Basically a tunnel in the chassis so the driveshaft sits inside the chassis while down.
Evens it out when it's on the deck

Ahh ok, that's some EXTREME lengths to go to lower your car but I can see the appeal.

To be honest mate, i had no choice once the air was on or i would've eventually damaged the driveshaft. Its not as bad as it sounds, only a 2 inch tunnel

Delivered today, just in time for the flare up of a back injury, so will have to hang off for a few days before fitting.....

Wrapped my wing mirrors in brushed aluminium:






I personally would have gone black to match your wheels and tints. S3 police definitely coming for you...:busted cop:

Basically making your A3 to look like a S3 by sticking bits onto it

I think we needed the S3 riot squad the other day, a metallic brown something, A3 diesel, not even an s-line with a S3 badge on the back - :busted cop: couldn't believe my eyes

Sprint Blue is the new Ibis!
Just had my springs fitted earlier, so enjoy the customary photo:

Still needs to settle in and I'm fitting the RS3 grill in a few hours so I'll pan that up in due course as well as a few fitting notes.

P.S. I am fully aware my car is filthy and it will be cleaned when I know it's not gonna snow ;).

Stance on this is good. Tips stick out a bit too far for my liking and it does sound way too loud! Saw it parked up at Tesco on Sunday, very clean. Heard you leave and saw a flash of white, so knew it was the S3 I'd seen and I was in the store when I heard it.

Why are you so surprised. You see it everywhere. In particular around where I live are a lot of BMW's with "M" badges on the rear. Even some relatively new bog standard 5 series.

Agreed though, not my cup of tea either.

They look pretty damn good mate, what kind are they?
Pb brakes mate, won some award in fast car last year so thought I'd give them a go. Very reasonable price

So, could you give us some more details about the discs? Which company made these?

Do you have to change caliper or does it fit the original? Do you have to make adjustments?


Tnx!

Check the post further down Mate.
It's a full kit from pb brakes. The standard caliper wouldn't fit.

Hahaha, it only sounds THAT loud when I give it the beans. Can't believe you heard it from inside the store. Under normal driving conditions it just has a nice, deep note and you wouldn't know otherwise. I'm always at Tesco, fancy a meet some time?! Were you there in your S3? I always leave round the back of the carpark so I wouldn't have seen it even tho I glance down the aisles.

Had the ride detailed on Saturday by a local mate of mine!

It was also in Motorwerks on Monday for the O2 spacer installation as well as the changeover of centre section clamps on the exhaust.
