    Talking Dre's S3 adventure :)

    hello everyone thought i would start a little progress diary on my 2001 S3, bought the car 2 months ago with 45600 miles and full service history with Audi and loads of receipts and history since owning the car i have had the bug and spent over £2000 on the car already was not the intention but you know how it goes



    first thing i done was the Cam-belt, water pump, and all tensioner's including the hydraulic tensioner as the car had never had it done in 11 years the old boy that had it used to spend £400 to £500 on servicing but never got the main thing done so when my uncle had the car for all the work he said i was very lucky the belt was ready to go and the water pump just fell to bits and the hydraulic tensioner was leaking to so got everything done with a coolant change + got the haldex oil and filter changed to all good to go now

    Next was getting Audi to do the roof rails only had it on one side plus the car had been keyed up on the back corner in the past so when they agreed to the 70/30 we came to an agreement that they do the whole quarter panel to in the price

    the scratch

    On friday when i got the car back from Audi i thought i would take on the mission to fit my B5 V2 tip, forge DV and green panel filter the little ******* clips to get of the old tip were not easy to start with but got to grips with it after cutting my hands to bits in the end lol did not helf that the after market alarm was in the way to

















    got to say what a difference these mods make very happy pulls very well and a much better sound

    Give your local Audi a phone mate they will arrange a day to take photos and measure the paint thickness to send it to head office then you should get a reply within 2 weeks usually 70/30
