'Go on DD, you know you want to. All I can do is offer you the cautionary tale of Colli, who came along to the inaugural APS meet in Feb. He had his remap done and spacers fitted but afterwards, he has a face as long as a thing with a long face. His car, sat alongside two widened, lowered, Millteked cars, looked like it was perched on stilts and with the original four gay little pipes barely daring to peek out from under the rear valance.
Ask Ed to order in the KW coilovers & spacers for you - it will save you a later trip (which you know you'll be making...) and complete your day!
After all, you wouldn't want people to laugh at you now, would you?
'Well rang Mr Audi today and I am still on target for picking up that week so just hope that stays that way and that the pipe sounds as good as it does on youtube... OH no what am I saying IF (thats a big if by the way) I do like the sound do you have these things in stock and could it be fitted on the day even though I cant confirm due to many varibles at the minute.. will I have the car, will I like the sound, Will the wife be coming on the Saturday .
'Regarding mods, I've just received my leasing contract, there is a clause regarding mods, which basically says no mods, except for a private plate, does that rule me out completely then?
Can I still do Milltek (when available)/spacers/lowering and return to original at end of lease?
By the way if I did not lower my Sport suspension would spacers still give a good appearance?
'I ordered the car 7 months ago, for delivery now when my current lease expires this week - the car arrived at the dealer in Feb! - the wait has been agony - more than any car I've ever had.
Been on this site so much that although I've never modded a car before I am having the Milltek exhaust, possibly lowering and spacers, S5 mirrors from ABZY (thanks ABZY by the way - they arrived yesterday - mint).
Plus detailer booked for Saturday as well!
'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?
'Just wanted to let you guyz know, I won't be coming to the APS meet for the re-map as I've just spent my last remaining pennies on IForged wheels, so no money left......
Good luck to the rest of you going for upgrades.
'Fingers crossed should have the car Thurs next week so if I like the sound of the Milltek Ill have one Ed . But being a biker how can I not like a louder exhaust
'Firstly I want to say thanks to Ed and the team at APS for the Miltek. Am lovin' every second in the car.
Secondly it now appears there may be a chance my schedule on 7th June may now be cancelled. I will know for sure during the weekend....for which if it is cancelled I really do want to be present for the APS day. To make the trip worthwhile I may also opt for some extra mods
If its not a problem, I may possibly go for springs and spacers, but if someone who has them wouldnt mind taking me for a spin just to help make my decision easier I would be very grateful. Im very wary of the compromise made to the ride and want to see it will be a major issue or not.
I do recall the unfortunate timing of the jacket spud!Hi Ian, please book me in too. You will recall my jacket spud arrived at the meet so I never had the chance on the day. Plent of external opportunites were taken on the day though
'I should get them tomorrow, I will bring details of the supplier, incedentially the supplier knows Ed quite well, I have asked if they would think about coming along to provide samples of other colour combinations, I have gone for OEM looking Anthracite and Anthracite edging or binding as they refer to it as, also had a heel pad included which if you return to them they will replace for £5 each time, lost count of mats that have looked really shabby and its only the heel part....
I will post pics as soon as I have them...
'Hi Ed, You can remove me from the list for the possible Milltek as Audi are a bunch of inept Twats and I will not be there with the S5. Bunch of sodding muppets the lot of em. I will come down on the R1 so I can listen to S5's that have the milltek fitted to see for a possible later order (If I dont cancel the car with the f*cking idiots).
