Hi, this is my A3 below, its a 2.0t and Ive had it 4 months now and I'm getting bored and wanted to start modding (nothing too drastic just suttle mods). I was wondering what to do, could anyone suggest anything? preferably with pics/build thread.



Cheers rob

Remap remap remap. Then you will never be bored!!

Remap alone should get you to around 245bhp.

A new fuel pump, air intake system and exhaust should see 270ish.

Yup, as leach says, the lights are a straight swap in terms of shape. You need to do a little bit of wiring as the tail lights go into the tailgate part of the lamp. That's a bad description! Have a look at some pics and you'll see what i mean. I think kufatec do a loom for the wiring. Then you'll need to alter some settings in vagcom. You can buy the lights from dealers or maybe ebay. Black grill from dealers or use fablon for a cheap trial. You could also get a Seat splitter for the front. Diadem bulbs to get rid of "fried egg" look indicators.

LED DRL's that are Standard on mine would look good, you can buy them in strips I believe!

Defo a remap say via Bluefin, you will be impressed with the power Difference!

Good luck and keep us all updated

Seal Leon LCR front splitter is part number 1ML 805 903 and is available from any Seat dealers. Cost for this ranges from about £17 plus vat to whatever the thieving gits think they can charge and get away with. Since it started selling well as an aftermarket part some dealers are just playing rip off.

There's one for sale on Ebay right now, but as I said it's a rip off. Link.

You might look here. There may also be other people who've done it on there, or even on other forums.
