Beautiful, just beautiful! Looking forward to the daylight pix. Speaking of which, I hadn't appreciated how small the spacesaver tyre (pic 2 of the curing set) was. Pray you never have to use it.

Nice Jamin.

Don't know whether to by pass the rs5 replicas and get something decent like these now.

Do you need the spacers on with the 285?

Those fuckers would transform my spine. Roads round here are a scale model of the somme circa 1917 with a coating of blacktop courtesy Tommy tarmac on a Friday afternoon foreigner.

There is more rubber on a durex.


I'm practicing to be a miserable old git..............how am I doing?

Defo not with 10.5's ;)

They the same as the Ferrada's but instead of PSS they running the Zero's and are noticeably more comfortable than them. Noticed it straight away and soon as I pulled back in I checked the pressures to make sure and they were 35 all round. So dropped the tears to 34 and upped the front to 38. Will see in the morning what they like then.

Getting there, getting there :)

Racks, I've been a disgrace for many, many years... And damned proud of it. However, I can't lay claim to being quite that disgraceful. Why, I don't even own a pair of Velcro gloves!

Its not as the gains over a stage 2 do not justify the cost.

"The results are nothing short of amazing; taking the S4/S5 from 359 horsepower to 469 horsepower on 91 octane fuel and 538 on race fuel!"

So where is it on V power for example?? Not much over 500bhp Im guessing? Not worth it as it also needs new downpipes too.

I was wondering about the gains, only 30-40 off what you have from stage 2. What was the possible advantages of this kit over a stage 2?

Even if you say an extra 40bhp over what I have now if they run it on 99 then that is a very small difference on the track and not noticeable on the road.

Even the V8 manual S5 with the blower which is like 600+ bhp translates on the road to roughly the same as a stage 2 V6 SC S5 according to Mr W who had one?

Yea I get what you are saying alright, can't understand the benefits of the stage 3 over a stage 2 in terms of a selling point. Half the price of the APR supercharger will get you a decent stage 2 setup
