    Started with a 1996 Mini cooper and had a couple of other minis with fibre glass front ends (makes it so much easier to work on the engine) !
    Ive had a Rover metro with a 1.8vvc engine running Jenvey throttle boddies an Emerald ECU and Piper 285 cams pushing 212bhp that was real fun and surprised a lot of people!
    Then had a stripped out Renault 5 GT turbo with no interior just Carbon Kevlar bucket seats pushing 180bhp
    Then an RX8 which stayed standard just got bored of filling it up with oil
    And the S3
    Ive been Badger 5'd

    Can we break the magic 300?????? In a word Yes 314 BHP 249 lbft at Badger 5

    I have had 2 car seats in the back of my Coupe,wasnt as bad as i expected. I had to get rid as missus wouldnt drive it,and couldnt get the dog in the boot!
    It was quick,even as standard,i remember i let a mate from work take it for a spin as he had just bought an S3,and he was shocked at how quick the Coupe was in comparison.Altough on paper its not that much quicker,but probably felt a hell of a lot quicker! It was loud and a little rattly!

    Used to have this before some lowlife ****er decided to go drink driving, crash into me, nearly kill me and write my pride and joy off

    1997 Colt Mirage 1.6, was quite slow for a 1.6 but it was a first car:



    Then as a result of being scared from the accident i got a bigger stronger car so along came the A3

    My previous was my mk2 20vt...







    Oh the fun.....!!!

    Also had a daily mk4 gti 20vt...



    before that i had an early lhd 16v mk2 in racing green metallic, and ran it on A3 pepperpots before i had seen any other car do so.







    thats the one car i thought i would keep forever!! Loved it but my job changed and couldnt afford a play car at the time and had to run my work hack during the day.

    I won't go all the way back to the start as it'd take up the whole thread, but I had:

    A Volcano Black A3 1.8T (excuse crappy pic):



    ...but had to sell it it buy a flat, so bought this in the interim which I should never have sold:



    ...I stupidly sold it to get into my current S3:



    ...so then bought another GTI which I know use at weekends when I'm bored of the lardy VAGgon:

    My 1990 205 GTi. I sooo wish I had not sold this beauty of a car. Limited edition colour and tasty full black leather interior.....and a 166bhp 1.9 16v engine from a 405 Mi16!



    And then I sold it for this S3....which was a lot faster and more comfortable but nowhere near as fun on the twisties!!

    Cheers mate, that was my car of 7 years.

    got rid for a few reasons. I wanted to progress onto a big turbo project and knew that even with the Quaiffe LSD i was pushing what was pretty much acceptable levels of grip so the transition into 4wd was innevitable. Add onto that, that even though i had a blast in that car, that i wanted to start really "using" the car on the strip and maybe a track. Plus the mk2 was mint, and i knew if i pursued my ambitions in the mk2, i would probably wreck it with stonechips and even the odd ding. To top that lot off i was starting to lose the bug with regard to finding parts for the mk2, its just getting harder and harder. And with a young daughter now the mk2 just wasnt practical.

    Basically it made more sense to sell when i could get decent money for it, and buy the S3 which i could hammer into the ground and not feel bad for it. lol The S3 on the road running a GT30 will be about the same money as i sold the mk2 for which is quite an achievement.
    Audi S3 1.9 GT30....

    1996 Seat Cordoba SX 1.6i a whole 101bhp to play with!

    Spent fortunes on this then sent it for an engine conversion, 2.0 16v with an aftermarket turbo techniques kit bolted on, only for the moron of a mechanic to completely bollock up the alarm/immobiliser on it so bad that nobody would touch the car after him The car has never started since.

    On the positive side the guy who sold me my S3 took the Cordoba px and gave me £2000 off the asking price. From what I've been told the wheels/interior/sound system was stolen and the bodykit/suspension/brakes and exhaust have ended up on a Seat Inca van somewhere in Western Scotland.

    1998 PUG 306 1.9 straight no turbo dead as a door nail but looked the part, went through 3 engines in this thing!

    2000 Seat Ibiza 1.4s decent wee car

    Then drove the girlfriends car for a while a 2000 Renault Clio 1.2 it was a heap, didn't even change the oil in all the time we had this, i guess this is why the engine ceased

    And now 2002 A3 1.8t sport which i love as it's my 1st fastish car with a great spec full spotless leather interior etc
