Did the springs help with body roll? I am toying with the idea of adding springs/ARBs for my B9 to flatten it out in corners a bit. I want to do the minimum required to firm it up in the corners without changing the ride quality too much.

I have all of my parts and installation labor costs mapped out, just trying to decide what to do first.

The springs definitely helped the handling. It feels a lot firmer and the steering is more responsive. I did however change the tyres at the same time to a wider tyre which has definitely contributed to the positive handling characteristics now.

My next upgrade will be a rear sway bar also then big brake kit

car looks lovely although have to say chrome mirrors make the car pop a lot more was playing around with my s5's side mirrors carbon then gloss black and came back to matt chrome they suit the car so well and i recommend doing stage 2 at mrc can be quite costly but worth it stage 2 is at least 485bhp and 590 torque

485bhp sounds immense. Ive decided to see what a custom stage 1 map brings me to then build it up in stages thereafter

P.S. I'm a carbon fibre fanatic so I love the carbon mirrors etc lol

I bet you love the new wheel. Grill looks good where was it from?
The new wheel makes a world of difference. Feels so much nicer in my hands.

I got the grill from a local guy with an ebay shop. Can't complain - seems to be a great fitment

So my Carbon Imports high kick spoiler arrived today along with some 'carbon' gel plates.

Really happy with how this has turned out, but the rear end needs finishing off with a carbon diffuser

Not really worthy of an update but I fitted my invisible front plate mount today (push locks). I'm not convinced of their quality as I'm certain I could have made them better from old scrap material but whatever.

If anyone wants to see what they look like so they can make their own, let me know.

I also gave the car a wash... In the rain
