So, I'm a couple of months into the ownership of my 2001 Nogaro Blue S3, and I thought I'd better start the repair / build thread.
I picked her up after seeing an ad on Pistonheads, and did the round trip from the Isle of Wight to Blackpool in a day (!) She had full service history, 75k, private S3 plate, Milltek cat back, Stage 1 map, and was a snip at just under 4k.
I found out the clutch was slipping, the brakes were knackered (although still 100x better than my mk3 Golf), the front drop links needed replacing etc etc. I'm not mechanically minded at all, but I'm learning quickly.
So she's had a Valeo solid mass flywheel and clutch kit, new drop links, and new Pagid discs and pads all round. Then she went in to our local stealership for an Interim service and coil packs (done on warrenty), and I've just done new bog standard air filter, new NGK Iridium IX spark plugs, new coolant temp sensor and new armrest button kit. She has also had an alcantara shave (JML bobble off) and clean.
Next up: Coolant flush and replace, Haldex oil and filter change, Aerial rubber seal replace, and to have a go at fixing drivers lumbar support. These things will bring her back up to virtually A1 standard.
