    Take a look at my S3 and give me some Feedback !

    I have recently changed a few things with my S3, Namely wheels and also added the facelift S3 badges to the front and rear, see link below !!

    Please give me your thoughts and any suggestions for future modifications, I have just added a Samco Intake Hose and am testing an induction kit to see how the car responds, the feedback so for is good as the car feels much smoother with the Samco & Cone filter. I am going to make a permanent decision on the induction side soon. I have been looking at BMC induction kit and the Green Dynatwist, any feedback please let me know.

    A REVO remap is on the cards after having the free 5 hour trial, I want the car to sound sweet so any suggestions will be greeted with open arms.

    Thanks,

    Simon

    Looking good, I awaiting my facelift front and steering wheel badge.

    I think you should stick with a performance panel filter (green filter or K&N).

    Looking good Simon, which is the facelift badge? The smaller or bigger of the 2 badges?

    To be honest I am toying with the idea of ordering the BMC filter tonight. I have read reviews and it is discribed as the best induction kit available for the S3 but bear in mind there are not many available for the S3 comared to other cars.

    Cheers,

    Simon

    Your going to be dissapointed with the steering wheel badge, as they dont fit the pre-faclift steering wheel. The badge is a different shape. As I learnt to my expense [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bang.gif[/img]

    Thanks mate, I have paid for the badges yet, so I will only collect my grille badge.

    i was going to say the same about facelift rear light clusters, look much better

    But, isn't this a facelift model, i thought it was from X plate onwards, hence why the fogs are seperate and not integrated to the headlights. Am i wright or wrong?? not sure??

    Oh and i like the wheels, much better!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif[/img]

    Ross,

    You can get a x plate on facelift and pre-facelift. Facelift models were introduced last quarter of 2000 i.e 2001 model.

    I've had two x plates that have been facelifts..

    Cheers
    Rich.

    I have the BMC .. no negative effect on performance (or noticeabe positive effect either mind) but does give a nice subtle induction roar.

    Paired with the supersprint exhaust it sounds good.

    The car is in fantastic condition but I want it to sound more fruity and don't want to splash out hunderds on a new exhaust.

    I am not sure what to do.

    You could alway's drill a few holes in the rear box. I'm told this gives you a 20% increase in bhp as well. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Put the Milltek on mine with a d/pipe and single cat. Doesn't sound a lot different tbh. Having said that, after a blast it does get quite boomy. Apparently a trait of stainless exhausts.
