    Car is looking great mate, got to say i never realised how high the S3's sat as standard when on 18's (but you already know this :P)

    where did you get the interior bulbs from mate?

    did you manage to do the sidelight bulbs?

    Bargain price for the milltek! I just paid about double that here in Australia.

    Funnily enough those Super Pro bushes are from here I'll have to get a set of the fronts...

    Nice car mate.

    When you did your bake fluid change, was it just calipers or master cylinder and clutch too?

    Lovely looking car my friend!

    I just read this with interest, as I've just taken delivery of a 2001 S3 to replace my much loved A4 1.8T quattro and my head is full of the things I want to do to it!

    I was set on getting my stock wheels refurbed, but those 18" CH's look really good.

    got a bit done on the s3 today fitted the Milltek catback, done the rear arb bushes and fitted the boost gauge and what a mission that was took me over 45 mins to get the wiper arms off to take off scuttle panel off they just would not budge, managed to damage one of the wiper bolts in the process so had an other hour trying to get the nut back on as i could not find my tap and die set so had to get the dremil out and sort out the thread which took awhile fitting the boost gauge was quite a job in the end all done now though

    first had to take the old exhaust off which was easy considering its the original system





    while that was off i took the heat shield off to do the rear arb bushes they were worn and had a bit of play i replaced them with some super pro bushes

    managed to get the side lights done today bit of a mission even worse when the bulb falls through manage to get it with my magnet lucky enough other wise i would have had to take the front light apart so this was the last of the lights to be changed all the rest are done now









    when the bulb fell through








    also changed my Ariel and base sits lower now more of an angle instead of pointing to the sky which i prefer



    will try and get the springs on soon
