    A good foam, clay and clean
    Upgrade to Aero wipers
    Replace damaged engine trims
    Replace antenna base
    Replace cracked mirror case
    Restore headlight lenses
    Upgrade to alloy pedal set
    Install cruise control
    Wrap front grill
    Wheels
    Lower
    Milltek
    Map

    If anyone has any parts for sale which will help, give me a shout!

    Cheers.

    Very nice, and lovely colour too.

    How do you plan to restore the headlight lenses? I was thinking about this the other day as mine are 'cloudy' at the top on both sides.

    2000 grit wet and dry and then a machine polish works well too.

    Nice mule...once the bug hits you'll be spending a small fortune. Worth it though, the 8L S3 is still a cool car after all these years. I love mine.

    Well one week in and I've made some progress.

    The car had small oil and coolant leaks when I got it, thankfully these were easy fixes with a gasket and a seal.

    The oil had been weeping so long it had almost entirely rotted the turbo intake pipe so a new one also went on.

    All engine bay trims are now sorted due to a few lucky finds too.

    While up on the ramps both rear springs were noticed as being broken, the car has had all new shocks in the last 12 months though which is a bonus! Whats worrying is that it had just gone though an 'alleged'MOT before I bought it but how can they miss that!?!

    Ive taken it as an opportunity and ordered up the eibach spring set along with some aero wipers as the existing wipers are shocking, again how can that pass an MOT!?

    Looking forward to seeing the ride height on the new springs, really want some 19's to fill the arches now too.

    Welcome to the noggy club.
    Looks like a nice example. Good to do list too. If your getting a Milltelk and map, might as well get a Badger5 TIP to compliment them.

    I'm really trying to resist doing lots to this car as its supposed to be my daily. Problem is I love it and know how good it could be!

    Life was much simpler when I had a crappy Mazda!

    It's not dusty! That's what the cover is for and don't worry it gets used as it should!

    Since having the eibachs fitted, I've decided I don't want to live with the adverse camber on the rear so will be getting a set of adjustable arms and geometry all done next week. New radio antenna base too as my current one is perished.

    Adjustable control arms to sort the camber - my word, I can't describe how much better the handling and feel is after getting the geometry done!

    Replace tatty antenna base
    New MAF and rear discs and pads

    Had some time on my hands today and had a go at looking what a black grill would look like?

    After a quick play with some insulation tape...

    My advice is stay off 19"s, stick with 18"s! 19"s dont do the handling any favours & you can feel the extra weight on the throttle.
    I had but swapped back down to 18"s & makes the car perfect!
    ...... Now this one's MUCH better!...
