    Looks good mate- black pipes will do the trick

    Fitted 15mm front and 20mm rear spacers. Much better stance now.

    Removed the battery to get to the passenger headlight to try and sort out the wonkeyness as despite them passing the mot alignment I can't see much at night! turns out whoever fitted the last bulb trapped the wire underneath it so it wasn't sitting flush into the headlight and I also pulled the little adjusting levers into the up position for driving on the left, so hopefully they will be better now.

    Then I removed the bose amp for some re-soldering

    I have spent all day guzzling vpower and meth like its going out of fashion, I also found out the astra vxr's really aren't very quick and just to be nice to the old gal I emptied all the accumulated rubbish out of her. Oh and scared the brother in law who is a jap fan and had never been in something as silly as a 12yr old s3 lol

    Checked my oil yesterday after realising I hadn't checked it this month yet. Not a drop used! This has made me very suspicious and forced me to question whether my car is playing an elaborate yet fatal trick on me.

    I just went for a drive, with the rain coming down and the nights closing in these days it's hard to feel the love for the car sometimes.

    Unleashing a 380bhp assult on hampshires finest flowing A-roads seemed to do the trick though

    I feel for you Cecil, sod that!
    Gops you'll be fine, last time bill did my car he used yours as a base map because it flowed so well! Mine made unexpected figures but you have bigger wheels so if you have a similar setbup I can't imagine you being disappointed! I'll happily swap for a blast loving the aggression of mine right, hours of fun

    Took my S3 out the garage to fill it up with some VPower after getting my £50 Shell fuel voucher!!



    Averaged 22mpg last tank of fuel, which included 3 sessions out on track at ADI.

    Then went for a quick blast, still have no 4wd, but car felt pretty quick with the cold ambient temps!

    Replaced the worn front anti roll bar bushes, so hopefully no more knocking noises and used plenty of rubber grease on the new ones, so no squeaks either all being well

    Fitted some 15/20mm TPI spacers along with a wash, clay, polish and wax.





    Now the n/s/r really shows up the toe angle that can't be sorted other than new bushes. Damn it.

    Hi, not what ive started today but what ive basically finished today.

    Got hold of a tdi 5dr with full leathers but a seized engine.

    How it had sat for 6 months.



    first day of owning it and straight after 12 hour night shoft.



    next day while I had a few hours spare.



    bought a complete engine to make my life easier. So had the car a week. New engine in using a trolley jack.



    another week gone, no playing in the week. After a good day on it friday it was all ready to fire up. Took some starting but got it goin. So today I did this.
