Who knows of any places in South Africa where I can increase the looks and performance of my car besides Sport-tech, too expensive. (They would be cheaper if they did everything themselves, Rip-Offs).

I saw a nice A3 bodykit in the November 99 edition
of CAR (SA) magazine.I will see if I can find it
The Sportech kit is still the best that I have seen in South Africa.
Do you know how much the full Sportech Bodykit and conversion cost.
Do you know what sort of performance increases you get.

Yeah, the bodykit is about R21 000 when I checked last time (thats with the mags)and the engine conversion is about R11 000. You shouldnt go there though, Sportech does there conversions at Chip-logic half the price and the exhausts initially at 'wild-cat' then at 'SAC' and they wanted to move to 'TNT'. Im not sure if they moved yet.
Performance gains: 110kW - 142kW, but thats the standard conversion. A friend of mine did a conversion there, from 110kW to 192kW. Boosting at 1.2 bar, new injectors, change his cams but turbo & cooler are the same. They also do short-shifts there for R3 000.
Do you know if alpine developments has played around with any Audi T or Golf T yet?
