This year, we are partnering with BILSTEIN to give back to our valued customers. To show our appreciation we are giving away a new Audi A3 customized with all the goodies. All you have to do to enter is spend $50 at ECSTuning.com. Furthermore, each multiple of $50 you spend brings an additional entry; so for example if you spend $500, you get 10 entries. You may be wondering, "Anybody can just go buy an Audi, what's so special about this sweepstakes?". Well, working closely together with BILSTEIN and several other leaders in the industry, we have transformed this new 2016 Audi 8V A3 from basic to built; creating a superb daily-driven European performance sedan—and a nice prize to be won! We worked hard with BILSTEIN building this ultimate A3; the centerpiece of the build being BILSTEIN B16 (PSS10) Coilovers complemented by 19" Rotiform LAS-R wheels for a stunning stance with unrivaled comfort and handling control. Tucked behind the Rotiform wheels, 6-Piston StopTech Big Brakes have been fitted to the front with complementary rear StopTech Drilled Rotors with Street Pads and ECS Exact-Fit Stainless Brake Lines . As if the BILSTEIN B16 (PSS10) Coilovers weren't enough, 034 Motorsport Adjustable Rear Sway Bar, Sway Bar End Links , and Drivetrain Inserts have been added. Additionally, ECS Heavy Duty Front Strut, Pendulum, Engine, and Transmission Mounts have been bolted on to harness the A3's engine torque and round out the chassis & suspension upgrades.  Boosting the 2.0T Gen3 power plant to the next level, 034Motorsport Stage 1 Performance Software, Wagner Tuning Intercooler , Milltek Sport Cat Back Exhaust , paired with our Kohlefaser Luft-Technik Carbon Fiber Intake System have been added to maximize the power output. Additionally we added our Aluminum Street Shield for underbody protection, and Performance Baffled Oil Catch Can System which helps reduce the chance of power robbing carbon buildup. For styling treatment we installed our top-of-the-line carbon fiber accessories throughout the car, including the Carbon Fiber Battery and Engine Cover , Trunk Spoiler , Front Lip Spoiler, and Mirror Caps . For an aggressive finishing look an ECS RS3 mesh grille has been added along with a custom graphics package applied. This A3 could be yours! Come along for the ride - follow us during each step of its build on our Youtube and build page as new parts are revealed and installed. Once the build is complete, the car will be given away in a special ceremony at BILSTEIN headquarters in Southern California. The winner will receive airfare and lodging on their way to pick up their new car in California, as well as Liqui Moly Oil and Mann filters for the first 100,000 miles of ownership.
