What coilovers did you go for KW?

Got my Msport wheel on this week, although got to change the paddles over as not working.

I've gone for ASTs 4100s which are supposed to be really good. Also they were willing to supply me non-m3 fronts and m3 rears which saves me a whole heap of messing around. Plus I got them with front camber plates.

These are the coilovers:
http://www.vorshlag.com/product_info...roducts_id=501

Unfortunately found out yesterday that I cocked up one of the rear wheel bearings when I did them and subsequently managed to damage the driveshaft in a fit of rage trying to remove it. Puts me back 100 and a good few days to sort it all

Still on course to be finished this month (fingers crossed)

Struggling to get old paddles off! Unscrewed paddle and there is a 3 pin wire plug attached to the wheel. Should this just slide off?

I had the same problem with those 3 pin connectors. I didnt have the patience so just used long nose pliers to get a purchase on it and 'wiggle' it out. It does come out but you have to use a little force. I think the proper way to do it is to unscrew the front trim (3 screws behind the wheel) and take the unit out and unplug it as there are lugs that need to be depressed using a small flat head screw driver.
I may be wrong but theres my two pennies worth.
Once they're out then all you need to do is unscrew the paddles (one torx screw each side) and swap them over. If I were you I would get the M3 DCT paddles that a forum member is selling on here. He's asking 110 which is a fraction of the cost new and they have transformed the manual override function immensely.

You wre right. Although i discovered on the 2nd one that if you just lift the plug where it sits, it slides straight out.

Still not made my mind up on the splitter, maybe it will grow on me!

Looking at the car today I dont know why i bothered cleaning it! seems to get dirtier quicker since fitting the spoiler and rear spacers.

Bad bit, still got a underboost light above 5500 rpm! Lads on US side said try changing the plugs, could it really be that simple?

Leak seems to be better at normal settings [ running map 4] but as soon as I jump into 5 it will appear again!

Cant wait to change the plugs and vac lines

I like the car with the splitter more, but I am unsure on it too... I think there are more aggressive ones out there...

Love the exhaust! And gd luck sorting the boost issues

Yeh need to find something different, still not sure on it. Also anyone know if the SE inserts [ you know the thin strips in the grills] are removable?
