    That looks nice but how you going to clean the back window boetie

    I wish I could of had a silver S3, but there only 4 S3's here in Dubai and the silver one wasn't for sale, had to go for yellow.

    Is the S3 still expensive in SA ?

    Ive never used my rear wiper on any of the hatchbacks I have owned

    My dream S3 is an Imola yellow one, want to swop? haha

    Yeah some of them are still quite pricey, but its hard to find one in good condition.

    ha ha ha, we have LHD cars here, so I cant even bring is back to SA. I will definitely take the engine though

    I paid the equivalent of R50k for mine here in Dubai. It was stock with 110 000 KM. Body needs some tlc as the people here dont care about other peoples car in car parks and always open their doors onto your car

    The work youve done is superb, and well documented for others too.

    Your little garage setup with the big car port is pretty nice!

    Sunday I set off to Paul to get my car polished, As usual he did a fantastic job and the car looks ten times better. Also received a interior detail with loads of leather treatment.


    Sorry for the crappy Iphone pics.


    Car was wiped and masked off.

    Collected my new wheels during the week, gave them a good clean last night.

    Now to work out what thickness adapters I need to get the correct ET and save up for some rubber.

    Have not done much to the audi of late, guess laziness has taken over.


    This weekend I replaced the cam tensioner seal as it was pissing out oil. Absolutely hate this job.





    I have started gathering some parts for the Audi's new sound install.

    Nice sound setup there. you going to install yourself?
    What size sub is that? You building the box?
    What size mids and whats your plan to mount them?

    Tel us more about the amp. I dont think 50 rms per channel is going to be enough for the sub. If I remember correctly the sub is 250 rms and I know you want it to bang otherwise you wouldnt of bought a RF

    I also see you still have the stock TIP, you need a Badger5 silicone TIP asap

    sorry for the 20 questions but you wanted love

    Well played lol.
    Ill be doing the install myself, as with all my previous cars.
    Sub is 12", but im now selling it and settling for 2 x 10" woofers.
    Splits are 5 1/4", ill me making baffles out of MDF to mount them to the door cars, after sound proofing the doorskin and panels.

    Dunno where you see 50RMS? The amp is rated at 200RMS per channel and after tested on the birth sheet it makes 949RMS.

    My previous install I built in my polo:

    I read the print wrong, thought it was 200.4 but seems you have changed the picture to 200 x 4

    You have plenty power there

    nice work on the polo!

    Rails fastened and sliding and clearances checked




    Frame around Amp rack mocked up



    All holes pre-drilled and counter sunk

    Got some more work done this weekend.


    Uprights supports made for the false floor and sub box to rest on



    Trunk carpet traced onto the wood for the false floor and cut out




    Test fit



    Left with some gaps as my jigsaw cutting skills suck




    Trimmings masked off and ready for some bodyfiller





    Opening routed for the amp



    Test fit



    Finished off the amp rack with grey carpet to match the sidepanels in the trunk, not that you will see any of the amp rack, just for piece of mind



    Bottom support stained black to finish it off and then assembled for the final time

    Onto the wiring.


    For the fuse holder I made a little mounting platform





    Wiring was then covered in corrugated sleeving and ends received heat shrink



    Interior was stripped and RCA's ran down the middle of the car





    Power wire through firewall grommet



    All speaker wire connections were crimped and received heat shrink



    My good pal paul came through sunday to lend a hand



    Interior was ghastly so received some cleaning
    Before


    After





    For the ground a Rivnut was fitted




    All the wiring except the RCA's was covered in techflex and end heatshrunk





    Amp rack wiring






    And done

    For a better front stage, the stock locations are crap.
