im new to the club so thought id say hello and post a few pics up.
i have started a couple threads already so my username may look familiar.
Names chris, or marsh if you wanna call me that.
live in dawlish, devon.
ive previously been into my fiesta zetec s's, owning 2 and 3 fiesta's in total.
i was close to getting anouther one, but i really wanted something 'a bit more grown up' as you say lol
and last sunday purchased my a3 1.8T Sport
i got it for 1k, which i feel i got a pritty good deal.
128k on the clocks (still pulls nicely very impressed, ive also had a golf gt tdi before that was on 181k so know how good german engines are)
mot and tax till august
came with a turbo timer, no idea how to wire it up though lol
an awsome jvc cd player, found a speaker on the roof so think theres a handfree wired in.
loads of sub and amp wires in the back.
i also found a box, apparently it produces freeview tv in the car :s no idea why someone would want that but there you go lol
for a grand there will be some sort of issues, theres a slight oil leak i need to have checked out, other then that its just bodywork, i'd say in the region of 200-300 ££ worth. but still.. not too bad and worth sorting IMO
its the fwd version, kinda kicking myself about it not being the quattroo, anyone here want to make me feel better and tell me if theres any up sides to the fwd? lol i know the golf gtis are fwd and the ibiza's so kinda makes me feel equal, id love to do a bit of track someday and quattro is the war forward i would have thought.
Im loving boost and i want more of it haha i started a thread about a cone filter, i fitted one sounds awsome and the DV is great! but it feels laggy so think im gonna go back to standard :/ be great if someone could link me to a good DV that you can hear through a standard box? preferably a single dump i think they sound better. heres a pic of it:
Gash cold feed i know, but it turned out to be alot shorter then i thought, could anyone link me to a cold feed pipe which fits to the standard box?
anyway pic of the car, completely standard atm but i'll list my 'to do' list after lol :
Starting to really like these seats, but un-sure if i want to try find full black ones or not, would work if i went for a silver with a bit of blue theme.:
My 'to do' list, or Want to do list lol wether they get done or not i dunno.
- Sort bodywork out and fit:
- Front splitter
Engine wise, im unsure. i want a DV, and i'd love a front mount. i wouldn't remap untill i have a few things so i dont have to spend out again on remap.
- Have front + rear splitter, spoiler and skirts colour coded
- Refurb alloys (i want s3 or tt alloys but that may come later)
- Rear wheel spacers
- Aero wipers (fav little mod) bought already
- Maybe light tints (unsure)
- Some sort of exhaust???? please can someone answer this, does the s3 cat back fit straight on? or will it only fit around a 4wd system. or does anyone know a good place to get cat backs?
- Pillar pod turbo guage (light up red)
I want this one to look smart. nothing over the top.
anyway C+C welcome
