James wanted us to inject a little bit of extra performance to his Audi A4 140. The car, it has to be said looks stunning. Its quite a rare combination of grey with read leather interior and a red folding top.
The problem with these cars however is the weight. In our opinion the 140bhp convertible version of the A4 with its narrow power band struggles with the extra weight of chassis strengthening once the roof was chopped of at the factory.
First job was to up the torque and develop a map that provides a nice smooth power curve from below 2k rpm right up to the end. We are not interested in developing engines with massive power for two seconds that fade to nothing like an on-off switch.
We brought the turbo in earlier, a bit harder but for much longer.
All our maps are developed to operate well within the limits of the cars components such as clutch,gearbox etc.
Next was the Eibach’s! James confessed that really he just wanted it lowered to maximise its aggressive stance and so the wheel’s filled the arches better.
However – when we pointed out the driving benefits he would have with the pro kit over his original choice of spring he was happy from the start.
These Eibach pro kit offer a many benefits
The Eibach Pro-Kit is the perfect answer ….
The Eibach Pro-Kit is the perfect answer for most frequently-driven street cars. It’s Eibach’s legendary spring system that dramatically improves both a vehicle’s performance and appearance.
Pro-Kit lowers your car’s center of gravity, reducing squat during acceleration, body roll in corners and excessive nose-dive under braking.
Pro-Kit also reduces excessive wheel arch clearance, – just a bonus really but it does suit the car very nicely.
Every Eibach Pro-Kit is designed and tested by suspension engineers and performance driving professionals, to deliver aggressive good looks and high performance handling, without ever compromising safety or ride quality. By using proprietary, progressive spring design, Pro-Kit provides the ultimate balance to take your passion for driving to a whole new level.
Customer Feedback – James Gordon-Foxwell
“I had the pleasure of two very knowledgeable guys working on my Audi A4 TDi S-line Cabriolet Thursday, firstly advising the best set up for lowering my car with an Eibach pro kit, then setting about a remap for the ECU.
“I can report as regards to the suspension they were spot on, I’m over the moon with the ride quality retaining the comfort levels as previous but now it feels so planted on the road, looks sleek too.
Power is up now to making the car so much more drivable, all in all very happy..
Thanks to Steve and Nigel..”
