    Slippery slope....

    I'm covered in grease and I've been thrown down that slope where I cant go back haha.

    Mods are only minimal at the minute, 80mm TIP, N429 delete, and S2000 air filter, but since replacing my squealing turbo my cars pulling harder than ever..... and I want more!

    I was bidding on a 3'' downpipe and decat on ebay last week but missed it as I couldn't get on the internet where I was and lost it by £5 im pretty sure it was somebodys on here? that would have been ideal to of upgraded that whilst the subframe was out last week.

    Well she's in for a cambelt kit the weekend, im hoping by the time the summers here it will be FMIC'd, 3'' DP, and ready for a remap.

    p.s, does anybody know where those cheap FK coilovers went off ebay? went to buy some yesterday and they have gone

    It's always the way mate, had my S3 5 months now and already spent a small fortune on it. Still, at least it's cheaper to mod than my Evo was!

    Im sure between everyone on this forum, with the amount of money we have spent, we could pull britain out of recession......

    Its a very slippery slow. I remember one guy the uk mk-vis had litterally everything on his car.... all the cosmetics, R 32 leather seats, interior, clocks,gear knob, trims, body kit, coils and at least 2 grand on wheels

    To be fair when I sold my Evo and bought the S3 I had a few pennies left over for mods and wanted them done ASAP as the Evo was heavily modified at 500hp. I looked at the S3 8P but I prefer the S3 8L, more of what I perceive to be a "hot hatch". Newer cars just seem to be getting bigger and heavier!

    They just don't understand mate! Got my car back yesterday after having LCR painted blue Brembo's fitted. As far as she knows I just had my standard calipers freshened up. She won't even notice the black brembo decals on the calipers ;-)

    If you`ve bought a new one then it`ll be the revised piston and it`ll be working properly with no leaks now. I bought mine over the standard because i had 2 standard brand new valves and both whistled their tits off. Dodgey batch possibly.

    Well I started the suspension upgrade the weekend, did the back shocks and springs, leaving the shocks loose until it was back on all fours, then tightened them up, came round to the front and realised I didn't have a 7mm Allen key for the top of the strut
    Not all was lost though as I decided as it started raining id finish the job tomorrow at work where I have an air gun, simples

    I will upload some pictures tomorrow.

    I bought my 007 in December and then emailed Forge asking for the service kit as I didn't want to have the problems associated with the 'old' piston. They sent the kit first class. Free. That sort of service means I'll happily buy from their products over and over again.
