Know very little about mods guys so do apologize but what is the difference between H and R springs which i see Ess5ive and Ian has fitted and the KW coilcovers,you havnt had the H and R Springs fitted that long guys so why changing to the KW Coilcovers,were they not available at the time or is it just a better ride with KW fitted over H and R,judging by the price of the KW coilcovers they seem a lot more expensive.
I am thinking about lowering my S5 to go along with my possible milktek just trying to gather as much info as possible,my buget probably wont stretch into coils but cant see the point in getting H and R if i will want to change them in the future so may wait until i see and gather more infomation about them on the day.
Do you keep them in stock Ed or do they have to be ordered in.KW Coilcovers?
Thanks for your reply there Ian,well explained i think even for a noob like myself
Look forward to seeing and hearing your motor,your seatbelt does work doesnt it
I am not sure atm weather to go with drop and spacers along with my milktek,if i like your mods of course.
A lot of vids i have watched seem not to have spacers fitted and the S5 looks very well,is this because they have 20" wheels on or just personal taste.
Still undecided on spacers does ride look ok with just the drop and handle as well?
Question Ed,do you keep both types of milktek exhaust in stock,slash cut and jet tips finish? as i am undecided what type to get fitted until i see both.
Is it possible to have both in stock as i have quite a journey and would hate to like one over the other and you not have it in.
Do you also keep the H &R and spacers available on the day or do you need to know in advance to order them in for the day as i am not sure on this upgrade until i see the guy's S5's that has already been done.
P.S I am meeting Manor around the M62/M18 interchange to travel down from the north to APS on Sat 7th,if anyone else is interested in travelling down in convoy feel free to pm myself or Manor,time will be arranged nearer the time.
Well guys i dont know if you heard today from Andy(Manor) about my little run in with a articulated lorry but i was planning as you know to attend today and get some work done to my S5 when travelling down the A1 near Catterick a lorry decided it would be good to switch lanes from the inside to the outside to let someone in that wanted to join the dual carriageway without checking his mirrors,he caught me on the passanger side around 65mph-70mph and dragged me along for what seemed a mile before i managed to pull off his near side somehow and ended up near the central reservation and not the other way or i would have been crushed under his 20+ ton lorry and no doubt would have been dead or seriously injured.What didnt really help the police was that he did not speak a word of english as the delivery company and himself are from budapest,my insurance company get well paid lets see how good they are.
I visited my local hospital to get my back checked out then it was off to Audi Bodyshop to get a estimate and leave my car there until the insurance companys sort something out to authorize repair with the estimate damage around £5000 to £6000
Well what should have been a great day turned into a nightmare for me but thank god i am still here to tell the tale.
Sorry i missed the meet guys,maybe another one at APS sometime and hopefully this time i can attend without a foreign lorry driver wanting to kill me.
Look foward to some pics
Ed i will be in contact as i still want my S5 upgraded when i get it back from the hospital,when that will be i am not to sure atm
Remember guy's beware of foreign twat's oops sorry on the UK roads because they are dangerous and cant drive for shit
P.S Andy do you know if my mats are getting sent to my home address?
