Thats no Moon, Thats a space station!
Back in an S3 :)
Well as some of you might know i have been on the hunt for another 8L S3 for a while now as i sold my last pre facelift one about 3 years ago and have been in A4`s since then.
Managed to find one last week that was a) in my price bracket b)had the options i wanted c)was in pretty good condition and had no rust.
So i am now the proud owner of a 2002 BAM 225 S3 in Ming Blue with silver nappa heated leather. Its also got Bose, symphony 6cd, Eleccy sunroof, Cruise control, Auto Dim rearview, aluminium wing mirrors, centre armrest and 18" wheels.
Since buying the car i have done the following :using guides i found on here mostly) :
Injectors and FPR clean using ultrasonic cleaner
Painted the chrome grill surround black (the chrome had chipped off in a couple of places)
Changed the gearbox and diff oil
Replaced the oil pick up pipe and cleaned the sump
Repaired Drinks holder and climate unit as both were glued up with something like old fizzy drinks
Removed both wheel arch liners and cleared out loads of mud and leaves
I have also fitted :
New front discs and pads (painted front and rear calipers red too)
New BKR7E spark plugs
New Mobil 1 oil and oil filter
New Pollen filter
New Pipercross panel filter
LED sidelamp bulbs
2 x Falken FK452 tyres
Silicone turbo intake pipe and new breather pipe as both had perished
aero wipers front and rear
I have a Forge 007p on its way for me to fit and i am hoping to get it Revo`d either this week or next.
I spent yesterday giving it a good clean so its been clayed and then had a couple of coats of wax. Its in pretty good nick except for a few minor dings and a couple of scratches and chips so here are a few pics :
