Tbh all the Audi guys came over from next door to see it as they couldnt quite believe the noise it was making and once up on the ramp one Audi tech said ... “oh I didn’t realise the RS3 4 motion was just a bolt on” ... ImageImageImage ... I bloody wish haha!Image

@Beaker2135 Thanks Steve! I thought it was so funny when the Audi tech asked if it was bolt on ... must look fairly OEM then at least lol ...
not that ive seen the underneath of any RS3’s on a ramp to compare mind but i’ll take it as a compliment from the old Vorsprung Durch Technik team or 4 sprung duck technique to us lot

Cheers James mate! Few more bits to do before its fully on the road though mate!

Need to graft some subtle steel arches on the back to accommodate my 10” rims as the nee set up means the overall track is wider, so any suggestions welcome. Looking at RS3 front wings to cut up as the arch circumference is a close match ... here we go again lol

I was thinking the same as Steve, it looks so OEM it’s hard to believe the work that’s gone into it.
You’ve raised the bar mate, where you’ve gone, others will follow

Am I correct in thinking you’re going for a supercharger next?

Pete mate its a massive team effort and a serious labour of love for sure! Yes a supercharger was/may still be on the cards but i’ve got something else in my head after hearing it ... we’ll see!

Going to take a little time out, sort the rear arches and 10” rims out etc first and give my little Caddy pick up some love and refurbishment to free some space in the workshop ... then we’ll see where we go in terms of a bit more power to 4 as opposed to 2 wheels now mate. Thanks as always for your kind words my friend

You needed to fix the minor paint damages on the rear arches so good excuse to built them out before respraying these arches Image

If 10” fronts would be possible you would have deep concave all round... sorry will keep my mouth now before I bring you on new ideas.
