    Well, it's not your average 2.0 TDI! It happens to have a hybrid turbo 220bhp and 335lbft torque so it should make my commute a bit of fun

    Cheers Stace. I shall be at the shows still. Means that as I won't be doing the strip I can do more drinking

    gone mate. Straight swap for the TDI.

    At least my old S3 will still be seen at the shows and it's new owner will be able to give it the love I've not been able to over the last 2 years.

    I've not had much driving time in it yet but it's a completely different beast. I'll let you all know how it is once I've done a weeks driving.

    It'll be a wheel spinning nightmare on the strip I should expect.

    It needed to be done really as the S3 was being wasted doing a horrible long journey and it was costing a fortune!

    Where's the 'dis-like' button?

    Priorities do change, that's just the way life is. Good to hear it's going to an enthusiast though, and that you've picked up a performance beast as a replacement.

    Such a shame that one of the most helpful and detailed build threads in the 8L sections is coming to an end/being sold on.

    Cheers for the help and guidance and I'm sure this build thread along with the quick links to each section on the first page will help many more S3 8L owners to come

    Great to see you're not doing a Welly and completely disappearing from ASN - who was another very knowledgeable and helpful dude in this section

    Well guys, as I've migrated over to the dark side I've started a new thread. I'm afraid it won't be as exciting as this one has been but I know I won't be able to completely ignore the little modding devil that sits on my shoulder Anyway click on the little car below.

    Westy, sorry I know you sold the S3 but I wondered if you ever tried to for 16inch wheels over the 986 calipers on 312mm rotors?

    Not many people seem to go for the Boxster calipers as they all want big rotors....

    I didn't go any smaller then 17". Do 16" fit over stock S3 callipers? If they do then they might clear the boxsters with the right spacers.
