    Kevins lellow s3

    Hello all.. Owned the car for about 4-5 weeks, loving it 100% at the minute and im sure it will only get better. A few things i have done since owning it,



    Ive got a boost gauge to fit, service due next week.. Next will be wheels as my tyres are nearly dead so may be time to upgrade

    ooops, forgot to say, is there a national tyres near you? If not, get down to newton abbot as you'll get Oil, New filter and labour for £42 inc VAT, they use castrol edge too, the deal to be had here is the fact that in most places, the shelf price of just the oil alone is £50 - £60! Bargain!

    Kev, welcome to AS-N and good to see another Plymouth S3 on here. I've got a Superchips remap myself and love it, nice smooth and great power delivery. If you need it scanning with VAG-COM anytime give us a shout.
