    On behalf of the entire world I would like to politely ask you to stop making a constant stream of threads all on the same subject.

    You recently made this thread - a3 1.8t agu k03 modifications

    Which has had some good views, many replies and a lot of information. If you have further AGU tuning questions please refer to your original thread, use the FAQ tuning thread in the top of the threads list and use the likes of eBay or classifieds to answer your questions on pricing.

    300bhp isn't possible, reliable, or maintainable with a £2500 budget. And quite frankly, you're not ready to have an 8L modified to that standard, it will be more trouble that it is worth.

    Glad to see you are getting your license back. Try and keep it this time; I would suggest a 300bhp A3 isn't the best option. Considering this forum is monitored and sponsored by insurance companies, you will need to declare your modifications. As somebody who has just got their license back I am certain this will cost you £2500 on its own, without budgeting the maintenance and running costs which come with a car running double its standard power.
    superkarl and daro like this.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    insurance isnt a problem so ive not got to worry about that mate. and ive done some searching about and seems 300bhp will be safe on the agu engine so what other problems would you say il come across? and i did post another comment like this on my old thread but didnt have any feedback bud. i dont really wanna go for less than 300bhp as thats the roughly the same power as the average turbo hatchback now a days vxr astra's etc or would you say an a3 at 250bhp would be quicker than a vxr with the same power? through different weight etc

    You say 'once you pass your test again'. Obviously due to a ban and if so why try and tune the nutz off of something and try to be the fastest boy on the block when the best option IMO is to listen to them that know and take things easy for a while.
