    Yeah. And I cleaned up the connectors. I thought the bulbs were faulty but they work fine inside the boot! But they jus wouldn't work in the number plate holders :-(

    Can you share a link to the number plate lights you bought please? I bought some that look identical and they didn't work so I put them in the boot light and they work fine in there. Weird!

    Looking good - didn't think I'd like the de-wiper mod but it looks good on a black S3. All you need now is a new coolant bottle and your engine bay will be sweet.

    Haha, no wonder my mpg is 23 lol, I bought them from an eBay shop, I'll find you the link

    Yeah I think the dewiper just De clutters the rear!

    Funny you say that, got a Porsche coolant cap and oil cap coming end of the month

    Thanks for your comments!

    Thank you mate! It's slowly getting there now I bought it brand new from ebay from someone who never fitted it as his car was stolen before he could! ! It was £200 including postage for the lot.

    Front Mount Intercooler

    So my dad and I fitted the FMIC today and what a mission! This took us best part of 6 hours including fabricating the mounting brackets and modifying the bumper, so glad its done!

    Anyway took a few progress pics



    Had to cut the bracket which holds the horns on as the bolts which connect it, also hold on the bonnet catch, and the bolts wouldn't budge. So out came the disc cutter



    Cut the crash bar out



    Offered up



    Smic's removed



    Then used this bolt hole to mount the angled metal bracket. Cut a recess for it to sit in





    Then used perforated strips to join the bracket to the cooler. Used the same strips to screw the underside to the car
    Unfortunately didn't get any pics of the bracket and pipework


    Anyway the finished result

    yeah the stealth look as definitely gone out the window now! (From the front, anyway) only driven it 15 miles but feels like the turbo spools quicker, no hesitation. Hopefully the performance will now be there all the time rather than having good and not so good days depending on the outside temp! I might take the bumper off again next week and do a little more trimming till I'm 100% happy, and may consider taking out the middle grill as well as the fogs..not sure yet! I've got some black diamond mesh which may reveal a bit more of the cooler without exposing it completely

    the only difference if any I can feel is a little less lag, and it does feel like the power delivery was smoother. I've only driven it for 15 miles though so I will let you know after a few days the main benefit will be the cooler air intake temp keeping things smooth and consistent as opposed to having sporadic performance!

    Im having it dynod on my week off next week and also having the map tweaked to accommodate the milltek, TIP, s2000 filter and FMIC...can't wait!

    also bought some TT pedals to go with the new foot rest to finish off the interior

    Yeah pretty much the same, except the 1st link comes with a rubber backing. The plastic footrest is ridged and slightly curved so the rubber backing helps it fit better and not rattle

    Your RNS-d unit, do you have the TMC fitted to it?

    Haha thanks mate! I inadvertently found it whilst looking for boost hoses That company do all sorts for the 20vt, although I had to send the top intercooler hoses back for a refund as the n/s popped off whilst driving as it was made wrong!

    It comes with a fitting kit and bolts on, however I stuck it on with strong double sided foam tape as I didn't want to drill into the rest

    So I re-jigged the bumper and the FMiC fitment yesterday so off the bumper came again!



    took some better pics of how I mounted the cooler.

    Top




    Bottom




    Horns relocated to this side





    to get a little more clearance I shaved off some plastic around the fog surrounds and removed the centre grill and replaced with mesh, I think it suits the aggressive look much better!
