    Cool ChEzNy_91 AUDI A3 1.8t build thread :)

    right so build thread time
    start from begining got this car december last year for good price due to slipping clutch and few cosmetic issues that need sorting :/
    drove to kingston from bristol and manged to limp it back with cutch being useless !
    pic of when i picked it up

    i then got a single mass flywheel and clutch kit fitted and full service but was showed/informed by mechanic that someone had bodged the dual mass flywheel with what looked like silicone all over it holding it together :/ but yeh got her fixed and running right
    at the same time i had the FK coilovrs fitted with new top mounts but standard ones ... big mistake as 2 months on they were ruined so after some polybush mounts soon.

    after coilovers fitted and a wash quick valet

    then purchased some s3 312mm brakes and cheapy deep dish steering wheel which i actually love ! chucked set of toyo T1r on front and some stubby plates

    after that i decided i wanted a bit of noise so got me a staright through powerflow exhaust with down pipe and de-cat and carbonio air intake and filter combined with recirculating dumpvalve so car now sounds epic and likes to pop and bang :D

    got my deep dish wheel fitted too love it although doesnt really look track like inside with heated leathers but i love them too

    within next few weeks am wanting to purchase
    - tax runs out end of month urghhh
    - new oil pick up pipe (precaution before track)
    - braided hoses all round
    -needs new rear discs and pads soon
    - do another full service
    -toyos for rear
    - remap with south west incartech
    - and sort handling out as very oversteery atm since fitting coilies but need four wheel allignment and rear tyres are shagged lol
    then i will take iton its first tack session and go from there

    good to here what people think so far good or bad !
