So I've had this about 6 months now and I absolutely LOVE it! Initially, I had put a deposit on a 2010 M3 DCT but I saw this come up which was younger and slightly cheaper. I took it for a test drive and my decision was made.

I picked it up like this....








I wasn't keen on the wheels and had a set of Ispiri ISR8s sitting in the house so I tried them on....





However, I changed them again for a set of rotors....





I then fitted some eibach spacers front and rear...


However, it really needed some lowering so I fitted some H&R Sport springs and a set of Pirelli P Zeros.



I also had a muffler delete, carbon fibre mirrors and some Carbon Akrapovic exhaust tips fitted for some aesthetics/sound...





I also have a Carbon Imports diffuser and high kick carbon spoiler on their way

It's booked in for a custom stage 2 map so will update further in due course

Car looks lovely mate. Also stage 2 is awesome you will not regret it.
Thanks mate. I am still debating whether to go stage 1 then stage 2.....cant decide whether its better to do it progressively or go all out first time around (and risk getting bored/used to it quickly)

Ive only got stage1 on mine but it was a custom map done on the dyno and it made 451bhp. I was worried about getting bored but honestly it's plenty fast enough for me and it's a huge improvement over stock.
I've a friend with a stage 2 S4 that I've driven, and I'd say it has slightly more lower end torque but I don't think theres loads of difference apart from his supercharger whine which I'm personally. not that keen on.

Ah really? Is your friend's S4 a Revo or APR tuned one?

The map I'm having done is custom and I will just have an intake fitted at the time. I'd be delighted to make anything over 420bhp with stage 1.

Have you got a build thread or any videos of yours?

His was actually done by mrc. He bought it like that but on his printout he only made 440 bhp but his torque was higher than mine though.
I don't have a builde thread I've only had the stage 1 and my wheels powder coated so far. I've bought spacers but not fitted them yet.
I'll try and upload a video.

If they are well established and know what they're doing, (you've done your research) I'm sure you'll be happy.
I was hoping for a minimum of 400 bhp so to achieve 450 I'm very happy with it.
It drives even smother than before just with loads more power.
Make sure you have the gearbox done as well.

So I pulled the trigger on this today....



It always really annoyed me that my car didn't have one
