      Buy some alcantara and wrap them yourself? Shouldn't be too hard. Someone did theirs with red vinyl.

      APR K04 TSI

      I'm getting my KW V1's in the next month or so. K04 TSI is planned for a month or so after that. Please tell me it's awesome - please! I want to know! I'm also thinking K04 over the Stage 3 turbo as the lower end seems better in the K04 (better for just booting around town) and should be sufficient for the occasional track day. And obviously there is a big price difference between it and Stage 3 turbo setup. I don't think I'll miss the last bit of top end power of the Stage 3 turbo upgrade, but WTF do I know...

      I love my K04!! I never say to myself "I should have bought the Stage 3" Its all the power I really need. what am I really going to do with more then 350-360Hp on the street. I used to track my R32 a lot but I maybe go to the track once a year now. So for the money you can't really beat a K04!!

      I hope that helps!!

      wow really do you have S3 intercooler and what exhaust are you running?

      man its pretty rare to find a new A3Q with a k04. I'm not putting any S3 parts on im leaving the exterior alone. Im enjoying the car and its not even tuned its amazing how different quattro feels

      Congrats redlinerob. I like your style. ibis and titanium is the best the car can look from the factory IMO. 2.0t + quattro FTW.

      Yeah, that helps like a hole in the head - ha ha!!!!

      Is your car FWD or Quattro?

      I'm trying to figure out the DP part of the equation (I have quattro), but I guess I should just go ATP and be done with it? Or perhaps B&B??? what did you do (if anything) with the rest of the exhaust?

      My car is Quattro. As far as DP's are concerned, now that the golf R is out there are a lot more options. APR, 42 DD, ATP(I have), B&B, Miltek.

      Also I'm running a Miltek cat back.

      2012 A3 Quattro
      05-09-2012 01:12 PM #50
      Same here. I got a 2012 A3 quattro without the open sky. It's rare in general to see an A3 here w/o open sky. However, I have no regrets. I don't know if it takes away from the head room, but I hated the perforated holes in the blind. Made the car way too bright. Dont plan to tune it though in the near future. I had a 2005 WRX and that was tuned/modded. It was fun, but the mod bug bit me and I couldnt stop.

      man i cant wait to start tuning it! the quattro makes a huge difference off the line i can allready feel the grip
