Hi guys, new member here :clown:

I'm calling out to all the Freetrack owners out there (or even normal Alteas if you can Help) to help me find out what are the best mods you guys dos/know about for the model in question.

So far I only had the bumpers painted white and applied a 3M black vynil in some points (bumpers, Mirrors and spoiler) and fitted a new 19" Audi Rotor.

I am looking for some way of lowering my car for further improve handling, but am a Little limited to 30/40mm because of the big rims :LOL:

Any informations are welcome, thanks in Advance guys, we are only a few compared to the Ibiza and León owners so Lets help each other hehe

I'll leave a few photos on what my car looks like now.
Cheers

For lowering you can see if our forum sponsor @Damian @ DPM can assist you :)

Maybe also consider a front splitter to make the car look lower but may be worth getting suspension sorted first to know what space you have.

Thanks Jimbo! Will talk to him for sure. Thanks to Mendez I now know the Golf 6 R suspension is a direct fit on the Altea, so I finally see some light at the end of the tunnel hehe.

As for the spoiler, I didn't even knew it existed for the Freetrack version :redface:

I will have to talk to him for sure!

Now I'm renewing the break kit with the ones from the photos, as I think I am still running the original ones and I have almost 200.000km on it.

Cheers

@EBC Brakes UK are now a forum sponsor so you chose well! I think for the splitter it needs some modification to fit flush but I did see a post regarding it earlier

I wish I'd knew that before I bought them :doh:

Already talked to Damian, no luck on suspension but thanks to Mendez I will look into getting the Golf 6 GTI suspension as it fits the Altea
