Seeing as this edition of the magazine isn’t in print now, I thought I’d upload my full review for anyone that was interested

And your car is probably even better now since you installed the PSS after this review. They wouldn't have much thing to write critical if you'd have them on before.

Yep totally agree. The PSS have made a big difference to the traction. It's so much more planted now than it was before and to be honest, I've only really driven the car in cold and/or damp condition since they went on. So I've no idea what they'll be like when it warms up a bit and is dry!

What a beauty. Understated, but beastly

Well done

I think it's pretty quick but as an owner of a GT3 RS you may disagree. However the torque makes it a very useable real world car and an effortless overtaking machine.

The mph needle does like to dance around with little effort and I hardly ever use full throttle unless I'm in 5th or 6th as any lower gear seems to have it hitting silly speeds very quickly.

The colour is called Audi Matt Titanium. Not sure if the paint code but any sprayer will be able to find it if you tell them this.
