I'd not seen the colour in real life before, so took a bit of a gamble on it. Really pleased with how he looks though!

Thanks guys, I'm having a lot of fun with him so far! :mrgreen:

Done my first 'mod' on him today - pressed plates.



He goes in to the garage on Wednesday to be lowered and have spacers fitted.

H&R springs and 15mm spacers on the front and 20mm spacers on the back.




Not the best pics of the lowering, I'll try and get some decent ones of him tomorrow :)

Looks good. See if you can get some pics showing the wheel within the arch...interested to see how the spacers worked.

Have to say it looks amazing :cool: ...think it looks like the perfect height on the new springs, although I don't know if it's something I would do.

In an ideal world I'd have it 10mm lower. But I wanted to keep it practical and that meant either a sensible drop on springs, or air - and I don't have the budget for air at the moment, so springs it was lol.

I see in one of the pics that your car came with Conti tyres on it. Haven't seen this before - usually Audi use Bridgestone for this size of tyre.

Yeah I'm not sure why that is??? It's not something I specified. A lot have been complaining about the Bridgestones so maybe that's why???

I wouldn't mind my car having Conti's on it from the factory, but I do plan to get Michelin PSS when I need to change the Bridgestones :D

Yeah they're supposed to be very good. I'm finding the Contis fine, but I don't really push the car hard tbh.
