I see you want a flat bottom wheel upgrade, just had mine done 2 days ago next thing will be fitting inside is 10.2rsnavs head display once they make rhd availableHi all welcome to my build thread, this has been posed elsewere but probable more people interested on this forum! So ive been thinking about doing a build thread for some time now seen as ive got something a bit different but just never really got around to it, now that ive got a bit of free time I might aswell give it a bash :thumbsup:
So i bought the car back in april 2016 with a few minor modifications including:
. Milltek exhaust system
. Rieger rear diffuser
. Honeycomb front grill
. REVO Stage 1 remap
Fast forward to early 2017 I began to get accustomed to the power it was producing so I started exploring my options for more power which was of course to supercharge. There were only two supercharger kits that stuck out to me and that was the JHM kit and the TTS kit. After a lot of hours doing my homework I decided the TTS kit was the best option for me as I am from the UK and the cost for getting the JHM kit to the UK with all the import taxes and duty fees was just mental! plus the £ to $ ratio had dramatically dropped due to brexit haha.
So off it went to TTS Performance! :grin2:
What a difference it made, the power from 3.5k to redline was truly brilliant! No longer shying away from a tuned RS3 now never mind S3 :2thumbsup:
And heres how the engine bay looks now.
Got the Audi R8 oil cap, Porsche coolant cap as I think the R8 one looks too bulky on these cars and got the black screen wash cap. Brings the bay to life I think. Just need to sort out that bland steering fluid cap.
So after a while of spirited driving there was one major thing that needed upgrading.....BRAKES! I was shopping around for a while and had my mind set on getting the REVO BBK and then I was browsing through ebay and BAMM! I saw some RS5 brakes front and rear with discs at an unbelievably cheap price so I snapped them up pronto. Maybe not the best set of brakes out there but for the price i paid i couldnt refuse. Think ill upgrade the pads to Ferodo DS2500 once these are shot.
Fast forward again to 2018. I always adored the look of the RS5 so decided to do something about it.
There was three main options to choose from:
1. OEM RS5 front bumper = too much fabrication work
2. rieger RS5 bumper = just looks wrong from every angle pretty much
3. XENONZ-UK bumper = easy fit, looks good and doesn't effect the side stance of the car (front bumper dramatically lower then the rest of car)
So obviously I went with the 3rd and best option in my opinion.
And here she is!
I just love the way it looks now! just need to close the gaps a tiny bit more on the sides somehow, any ideas? [IMG]
So that's it for now, hope you enjoy! There is probably a few minor mods ive forgotten but ill update here and there when i have the time! any questions Im happy to answer :smile2:
Mods coming soon, soonish lol:
. P3 gauge (just needs fitting)
. Flat bottom steering wheel
. Coilovers (looking at getting Eibach pro street S) anyone have any experience with them?
. Alloy wheel refurbish (desperately needed lol)
. Maybe a few more cosmetic mods to the interior and engine bay
