Welcome to our in house Project S3. The goal of this build is to use top quality products to enhance an already great platform. This car starts it’s life as a 2015 Audi S3 Prestige in Sepang Blue. We decided that the Magnetic ride suspension was a to limiting in suspension options so we went for the standard suspension.
The first step in the series will be to upgrade the wheels and suspension. As a authorized BBS dealer, we went with 20 X 8.5 Silver CH-R wrapped with 245/30R20 Pirelli Pzero tires. This setup provides a quality wheel that lowers the weight of the factory wheels even while the size increased and inch. Since the S3 launched last fall, the aftermarket suspension choices were limited. We decided on the H&R Super Sport Springs which lowered the car roughly one inch. The ride remained compliant but firm. We plan on using a coilover setup when they become available.
