2016 Audi S3 : CTS Turbo Downpipe, Emmanuele Design & ECS Tuning Carbon Fiber Upgrades!

psadmin Projects

Round one wasn’t enough for our customer Bertie and his 2016 Audi S3 so he is back for more! You can read through what we did previously here: http://partsscore.com/emmanuele-design-audi-s3/

For round two our customer went with a CTS Turbo Downpipe, an Emmanuele Design Rear Diffuser, and ECS Tuning Carbon Fiber Mirror Caps with Audi Side Assist integration. The addition of the CTS Turbo Downpipe will add some growl and extra performance to the 2.0TFSI engine equipped in the S3. The carbon fiber rear diffuser is mildly aggressive and compliments the carbon fiber rear spoiler well. Regarding the mirror caps, ECS Tuning is the only aftermarket option for carbon fiber caps that can work with Audi Side Assist. All of these exterior modifications in conjunction with the Black Optics Package make for one sharp looking Audi!

Modifications:

  • CTS Turbo High Flow Catted Downpipe
  • Audi Resonator Delete
  • Emmanuele Design Carbon Fiber Front Splitter
  • Emmanuele Design Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler

Shiny and light is the name of the game when it comes to carbon fiber. If you have Audi Side Assist then ECS Tuning is your only alternative to the expensive OEM carbon fiber mirror caps.

Audi’s pocket rocket, the S3 is a deceptively fast car and can hold its own against many cars that have more power than it thanks to the great Quattro AWD system.
