    Az's picture heavy thread of my now very very clean Santorin Blue S3

    Hi all,

    Thought it was about time I shared some photos of my newly acquired S3 after spending a fair whack of money on it and a lot of elbow grease and sweat since purchasing it 5 weeks ago.


    Its a 2000 pre-facelift Santorin Blue model but has the facelift front and rear lights, ivory full heated leather with optional extra ivory stitching on the steering wheel, gear gaitor, and handbrake lever.


    Mods include:-


    - MRC tuning custom remap
    - Sachs organic uprated clutch
    - Milltek 3" turbo down pipe
    - De-cat pipes
    - Milltek cat back resonated system
    - KnN induction kit
    - Forge SplitR
    - Forge silicone TIP
    - Forge silicone boost pipe
    - Brembo GT 323mm 4 pot brake kit with 'J' grooved discs
    - GENUINE BBS CH 18"x8.5" ET30 alloy wheels
    - Genuine mk4 golf aero wiper arms and blades all round
    - Leon Cupra R front splitter


    Future mods will be coilovers, adjustable rear tie rods, r32 anti roll bars, full geometry fast road set up, standard airbox and filter is on its way to replace the KnN as I don't ever think vag cars run well with induction kits, spacers for both front and rear wheels or at the least for the rear, matching silicone hoses in the engine bay (possibly to red ones) porsche oil and coolant caps courtesy of Scott's group buy, and thats about it I think.

    Since buying it 5 weeks ago I have spent just under £1k on it by getting a brand new genuine Audi fuel pump as it died on me 2 days after buying it! Brand new Falken 912 tyres all round, had the wheels professionally refurbished - acid dipped, shot blasted, and powder coated, brand new discs and pads all round, custom 'J' grooved discs on the front with Mintex pads and Mintex discs and pads on the rear. Also some other odds and sods such as correct wiring harness for the headunit to power up the amp, rear speakers, and sub.

    The car was on axle stands for about a week whilst I sorted out the fuel pump, wheels, tyres, and brakes, and once that was all done I started on the hardcore cleaning as I have a bit of OCD when it comes to keeping my cars clean and looking at their best, it was in a pretty poor state when I bought it, well, to my standards anyway! I have literally spent the last 3 weeks with every oppertunity I have had cleaning the car in some way shape or form, to every nook and cranny. i spent a whole day just removing all the tar that was on the bodywork(!) it was that bad!

    I don't have any machine polishers or anything and I wouldn't say I'm as hardcore as some when it comes to cleaning but I do try and I only use products that are easily available such as Auto Glym and Meguires. So I started off by using Auto Glym Intensive Tar Remover over every panel to remove the 12 years worth of tar all over it, then once washed and dried off I used Auto Glym Ultra Deep Shine for dark paintwork polish, then finally onto Auto Glym Extra Gloss Protection wax. The engine bay, door hinge areas, and door shuts etc I used Auto Glym Engine and Machine cleaner. On the interior I use Gliptone leather cleaner, followed by the Gliptone leather conditioner. (Excellent stuff and smells awesome!)

    It had window tints on it when I bought it, and I HATE window tints on blue cars, I just don't think it 'goes' so i removed them pretty much straight away, plus I just don't understand why anyone would want to hide that gorgeous ivory white leather interior?!!

    Anyway, enough talking, I'll let the pictures do that from now on..........

    Thanks for the comments guys, and thanks for clearing up the colour, I did have my doubts that it was Ming blue cos I owned a facelift Ming blue s3 a few years ago that was obviously definitely a darker blue than this, but I just thought that audi may of changed the shade of it between the pre-facelift and facelift models like BMW did with the colour estoril blue between the e36 and e46 models. I've not heard of either of those colours mentioned though so will have to get my handbooks / service book out to see if it states the actual colour in either of them.

    This is actually my 3rd 8L S3, here are some pics of my previous 2, both had subtle mods such as remaps, coilovers, aftermarket alloys, millteks, and the Ming blue had Porsche discs and calipers.......

    My first S3 which was the Ming blue, fully loaded with every option -









    And my second S3 was a special order Misano red facelift with every option apart from satnav -

    Good job looks really well, liking the ivory stitching nice touch. 8p gear knob would finish that nicely.

    But misano red on black rims gives me wood

    Lol, thanks for that thought!

    Funnily enough that is another item I do want to get to finish off the interior - an 8P S3 gearknob, I was seriously tempted to buy the one that was in the classified section but had other things that were more important to spend the money on, and now it's unfortunately sold.

    I miss the Misano more than the Ming, I bought that standard apart from the superchips map that was already on it, fitted the milltek non res cat back system, AP coilovers, KW adjustable rear tie rods, and the team dynamics, had Aps do a full geometry and that thing handled brilliantly on a driving weekend in Wales, and it was raining for the majority of the weekend. It stood out from the crowd being Misano red, made the absolute red look orange!

    Looks good.

    Didn't this belong to an old member on here? Sure the lad bought my B8's and HR's off me??

    Cheers Karl, and thanks for clearing that up Muzza!

    Ian - I know the previous owner was a member on here but not a regular poster, can't comment on the B8's and H&R's, but if that is true I'm gutted they are no longer on the car! The previous owner lives in Durham if that rings any bells? To be honest it's had a fair few owners and I'm sure the previous owner to who I bought it off of was a member on here, and it is a bit odd that the suspension is standard on it considering the rest of the mods on it..... Unless he bought the suspension set up, never fitted it, and then sold it on??

    Wow, haha! It's amazing the power of the Internet when people are talking about you or your car without you even knowing! Thanks for sharing the link I do really miss the Misano, it used to get loads of comments and it was so eye catching.

    Thanks mate, sorry I couldn't help you on the headlight swap as it was already done when I bought the car.

    Oh mate you gotta stop this, not the sort of thoughts one wants running through ones head! Lol.

    Your right, it would just freshen it up a bit, the one that was in the classifieds already had a gaitor with it which had ivory stitching, gutted I couldn't buy it.

    So is the Santorin Blue a pretty rare colour then? I prefer it to my old Ming Blue.

    The LM's that were on my S3 were 8.5" and ET35, whilst the ones on my A4 were 9.5" and ET35, they were both replicas as well as I like yourself and most others couldn't afford the £3k+ price tag for a genuine set of LM's! The CH's on my current S3 on the other hand are genuine.

    Can't go wrong with any BBS rims mate, LM's are classic and always will be.

    Ha, cheers mate, now that would look pretty damn good, us both travelling down to ace with our cars looking near on the same!

    Loving the detail of the stitch as well, very impressive, liking the previous marques as well, looks like you have had a good run on the Audi front

    Lol, it is a bit of a brave move I must admit, especially as our youngest is only 18 months old as it is! But it's all worth it, they don't stay young for long so gotta make the most of it. Will definitely be up for a future meet down at ace once things are settled though, maybe in the summer. Thanks for the congrats by the way mate!

    Thanks a lot mate! I love the stitch detailing too, a nice individual touch that. Thanks for the comment about the previous audi's too, there's actually one missing though, I've also owned a an 8L A3 1.8T sport that was running a dyne proven 254 bhp with plenty of handling upgrades too, that was fun and sounded nuts the way milltek used to pop and bang on that!

    Cheers mate! yeah it does look bloody good now for the mileage, but it was pretty rough when I bought it and it's taken a lot of time and effort to get it looking this good now, but well worth it!

    Out of interest why did you sell your b6 a4 and get he s3? She was a beauty.

    Looking good, good taste bud!

    Latest S3 looks great - I think it was at GTI International on the AS.net stand in 2010. Why did you sell the others though? The red in particular is really nice.

    We also have 3 kids (5, 3 and 1) and I know what you mean about them not staying young for long. Making me feel older too! At least you've had the same number of S3s as kids though... That's a good average.

    Thanks a lot mate! I sold the A4 to buy 2 cars with the money, the wife needed a bigger car for the carting the kids around in and I bought myself one with the money left over. The great thing is that we managed to get her an absolute peach of an '04 vauxhall zafira which was like new! That's now the family car for when we go out as a family or go away for a weekend etc, came with a massive roof box too which was a bonus, and that meant I could get what ever car I wanted for myself as I didn't need to worry about it being big enough etc.

    That's interesting, previous owner never mentioned that he took it to any shows, then again he didn't mention that he was a member on here either. I loved the Misano red one but sold it to help fund the last bit of our wedding.

    Glad I'm not the only one who has 3 kids and still likes to have a nice hot hatch to drive around in! I'm too much of a petrol head to give it up for anyone.
