    bye bye audi

    bought myself a new car a few weeks ago, originally planned to keep both but after only a few weeks i decided the audi wasn't getting used and that it would be better to sell it

    definately still planning to get an s3 at some point in the new few years but just getting this out my system, my god its fun!

    old car, 1.8T Quattro Sport 180bhp;




    new car, imported celica gt4 st205 255bhp






    ill be keeping my eye on the for sale section for that perfect s3 lol

    Oh Cool, I wanted a Celica GT4 for ages. Whats it like? How do you find the 4WD system in comparison to the Haldex system in the Quattro?

    aye its awesome, loving it! big step up from the a3, power and handling, it sticks to the road like glue due to the tien suspension

    i always thought the 4wd in the audi was great from a standing start, and this one is just as good, but i wouldn't go saying its much better, audi seem to have got it right

    interesting, the GT4 has permanent 50/50 4wd doesnt it>? id have thought they would be quite different. the S3 i drove just felt like a FWD until REALLY pushed

    Looks nice my friends friend has one and they are devastating... I think the list time 0 - 60 is something like 5.5 and this one was heavily modified, trying to keep up with him was a nightmare when I was supposed to be following him to the pub. Just be careful with that speed mate!

    yeh its quick, this one isn't quite that speed, it is actually putting out about 270 not 255 due to a few choice modifcations done by the guy in japan, running around 5.7 or 5.8 at the moment supposedly but manifold and decat fitted next week are taking it to over 300bhp so that should bring it down

    all unnecessary really, im not too interested in 0-60's or bhp figures, i just enjoy driving the thing

    timing belt, tensioners, ht leads and sparkies were done yesterday
    new seats are being put in as we speak
    respray back to perfect is next monday
    eagle f1's monday
    double din dvd system is sitting in my room waiting to go in

    ill post up some pics when its in better nick and finished
