phaeton update

Posted on November 19, 2015 at 22:53 12 Comments

Since getting the car on the road, a couple of years ago now, we've noticed some lack of steering feel. We measured the caster angle earlier in the year and noticed each side were not even the same and i cant remember what the actual measurement figure was but it could definitely be improved. Last weekends little project was to make some spare wishbones we had adjustable.…

Back end

Ive been doing loads of work on my S3 Phaeton project over the last few months and am now starting to think about bodywork.

I love the front with the ground scraping spoiler, but I'm less enamoured of the rear, even thouhg I've now got a bumper for it.

Any suggestions or good pictures for rear end styling?
