Update 1 - Acquisition

The Car: 2016 Audi A3 2.0 TFSI Premium Plus

Current Condition: Very stock


Introducing the newest ECS project car, ECS Project A3. We're starting out with a very boring very stock Audi 2016 A3... very stock (exciting stock photos below!). We're teaming up with a great group of sponsors to take this baby from bland to grand!



Stay tuned for more updates and details on the ECS Project A3 build!

Update 3 - Lower the altitude increase the attitude.

Current Condition: Not 100% stock, Coilovers installed.

Well, we decided the stock 4x4 esk ride height just wasn't going to work, and the spring rates and dampening could use a little tweaking. Lucky for us our partner Bilstein was able to supply us with a B16 (PSS10) Coilover Kit (LINK), and with that, the transformation from stock to stunner begins.

Update 4 - Let's brag about our 60-0

Current Condition: Lower and slower.... stopping

We're turning our A3 into a real driver. With the plans of power in the near future, we decided to go ahead and upgrade Project A3s brakes with a massive StopTech 6 Piston 355mmx32mm Big Brake Kit up front and upgraded pads, rotors, lines in the rear.
