    My new baby

    Hi, I am new to this so just getting used to it all! I live in Essex and couldn't resist when i saw an S3 for a bit of a bargain price. Right place right time moment! Just had two front tyres fitted and bought new front brakes and pads. Plans are to refurb the alloys, however not too sure whether to keep them a similar colour or go black?! I am not too clever when it comes to engines as only young and still learning lol but my mechanic did say a lot of pipes have been replaced. I am also tossing with the idea with a remap as everyone says it is like night and day! I am sure I will be picking your brains in the near future!

    FYI, do lots of reading and searching about things first or else prepare yourself for some abuse

    How long have you had that for and are you ever in Maldon? As I'm sure I've seen that about.

    I bought it 5 weeks ago in ipswich. I have popped down to maldon a couple of times and have family in south woodham so possibly could have been the one you have seen
