After over a year of saying that I wasn't going to lower my Caddy, I've just gone into the local VW specialist to book an appointment to have the 45mm Eibach Pro-Kit and power flex bushes fitted. Roll on the 11th when the Caddy will look a little less monster truck. Photos to follow.

Bent the exhaust hanger on the body to stop the darkside exhaust rattling on my floor and spliced the split screen wash pipe. Winter servicing

It's faster for me to send them off and get them powder coated and clear coated with the RS on and have all new stainless steel fixings and nipples done for £300 at least it gives me time to crack on with the rest of the stuff

Would be cool tho rs4 or r8 and to be honest don't think it would be to hard to get it in just a lot of wiring to do lol they are only going red hoping my wheels fit over them as I have 18" most rs's have 19" 20"

Hi Jamez they fit with 18's have an Audi S3 with ttrs brakes on and have 18s for winter wheels, it's just wheel offset that's important stick to somewhere close to et45 and you should be ok.

Ah ttrs/RS3 discs are same size @ 370 mm but with smaller 4 pot brembo calipers sounds like you've got RS4/5 set up if you've got 8 pot calipers I think you will need 19's to clear the caliper very tight with a four pot never mind a beastly 8 pot brembo. Good luck
