    Mandrel Dairy bends
    Tig welded and polished
    Custom once off Exhaust rear box

    It was quite hard and bounce for a car that was not that low, I much prefer my D2 setup now.

    Doing some maintenance parts on the S3 during the next few weeks when I am on leave.Replacing the complete engine harness from coilpacks to the ECU as mine is a bit damaged from turbo heat.(New OEM harness)OEM coilpack cover to protect the harness.OEM crank seal, bolts and transfer box seals for when I pull the gearbox to sort out the oil leak.Had some Solid subframe mounts made up by Derium Engineering, hopefully this sorts out the knocking noise Ive had for the past year.

    Some updates on the car (Won't be any pics as my phone was stolen with the pics that I took)

    New crank seal fitted
    Solid subframe bushes fitted
    New Concentric slave cylinder fitted
    2 new inner CV's fitted
    Transfer box seals replaced
    Oil drained and replaced with Royal Purple

    And then for the sound update, sold my 10" Hertz HX250 and got me 3 x 8" Gladen RS line Audio woofers. Will build a box for them this weekend coming.

    Its easy enough to access it, just fold the seats flat and move the box onto the seats, takes all of 2mins to do.

    Gave all the engine covers a clean and primer, then painted semi gloss black



    Received the parts back from Pro-coat friday afternoon


    Spent the most of saturday cleaning out all the sandblasting beeds, fitted with new gaskets


    New coilpack harness fitted into plastic cover, and jointed to car's harness

    Yesterday afternoon I quickly stripped out the water bottle as had some issues fitting the side cover.

    OCD kicked in and gave it a quick scrub


    Fitted it back properly and fitted the side cover
    Waiting on the battery bracket for the other cover, will give the engine bay a good cleaning this weekend

    Collected my battery bracket from GW Delarey this morning, now the engine bay can be complete :hurray:



    Got cracking last night on fitting the battery cover, but not without some modding, as seems they changed the S3 battery tray to a A3 one, nothing a air grinder and cutting blade could not solve.

    Fitted




    Was quite an expensive exercise (3k) for the covers and brackets for something that was suppose to be standard on the car

    Collected my Adapters this morning from Deriam, beyond impressed.
    20mm, 30mm and 35mm's electroplated gold.
