    My Build Thread

    Been here a while now so thought I should start a little build thread.

    The S3 replaced my Impreza RA, I have to say I find it tad boring but also a little less embarrassing when doing the school run, being 40 somthing I thought it was time to move on to a more 'normal car' That and the wife said I could not buy an evo 6!

    First job was to disable the ESP via VCDS, The RA was a lairy 340 brake beast weighting under 1100kg and ESP was not something I wanted getting in the way, it took me several hours searching the web to find the solution but it's now fully switched off, I fitted a blanking switch cover so you would never know it ever had it.

    I guess green would not be my first choice of colour I have to say, but with only 2 owners with 52000 miles and totally standard other than an exhaust I had to buy it, after selling the AP brakes that were fitted it stands me at 2 grand.

    I have a front mount, full set of nylon bushes, 18's AP coilovers, B5 tip, downpipe etc to fit when time allows, I'm half way through building my extension at the moment so I have to grab the odd hour here and there when I can.

    The wife and little lass left for wales this morning, with "get those stud walls finished" still ringing in my ears I headed outside to retro fit the evo 7 exhaust I bought. The one I had was not really loud enough and looked rather restrictive.

    First job was to cut off all the parts:


    The box was to long to fit under car so needed shortening:




    I then tacked it back together:


    All welded up:


    Offered up and tacked in place


    Centre section ready for welding flange on, ran out of argon so that it until tomorrow folks:
