I have been a member of the forum for a while now, but spent most of my time reading others builds and asking for help and info, I have added a few posts on my projects in the past but nothing to major
I have been meaning to create a build thread for a little while but my personal build has been a little slow.
Until now, as it seems to be taking off and things are starting to get MESSY!.
I will throw together the bits and pieces of my build in here in the hope it is of some help or inspiration to others. It will most likely not be in true chronological order as my memory for dates is appalling.
I started off with no intention to heavily modify as I loved the S3 in standard form. That did not last too long though.
Rather than go through the order in which I have added things, here is a list of the spec changes to my car now:
